Luckily, we didn't need to use the insurance! About 2 days before the trip they sent an email telling us to have a great trip and giving us policy information and phone numbers to take with us in case we had any problems. That was great because I didn't think to take anything with us and probably wouldn't have remembered the name of the company in an emergency. I found the price to be good for the coverage provided.

Did not have to use the plan thankfully. But Peace of Mind knowing it was there in an emergency.

Did not have to file any claims. Had some difficulty finding exactly what I wanted on the web site - which was emergency evacuation only. It's very important to have some sort of insurance when traveling in the 3rd world. Will use company again for extended 3rd world trips.
