Travelex Travel Basic

Of all the Travelex Travelex products offered on InsureMyTrip, the Travel Basic plan provides the most basic comprehensive coverage. It is a good choice for the budget-conscious traveler who needs basic essential coverage for unforeseen events that may arise before and during your trip.

This plan includes standard coverages such as trip cancellation and interruption benefits due to unforeseen covered reasons. It also provides benefits in the event that your baggage is lost or delayed during your trip. This can help to reimburse you for any necessary purchases that are made while waiting for your bags to arrive, or to replace those necessities if the bags are lost.

If your travel plans are delayed due a covered reason, this plan can assist in covering any costs for food and accommodations while waiting for your travel to continue. In order for this coverage to kick in, your travel must be delayed by 5 hours or more.

Benefits are also provided for emergency medical coverage and emergency medical evacuation services if you become ill or injured while traveling.

One thing to note is that coverage on this plan is First Payer Coverage, which means easy claims handling, less time and hassle to receive reimbursement for eligible losses from Travelex first, with no deductible. Funds may be recovered from your medical or other collectible insurance plans.

Plan was purchased in case miedial issues arose. Luckily we did not need the plan, but peace of mind has a value!

For the young adult members of our family is was an excellent deal, but naturally the costs increase by age, so that as the grandma of the gang I was paying the most. While I understand that we oldsters are expensive in that we may be more likely to fall or get sick, but I would like to see some actuary scales that take into account the variability of people over 80.

I had purchased travel insurance in the past but never had a reason to file a claim. This was the first time we were filing a claim for travel cancellation due to medical reason and I was a bit skeptical about my claim settlement. However Travelex Insurance put all my doubts to rest. Very efficient processing of claim. Completely satisfied. I will recommend Travelex Insurance to everyone. Thank you for showing all the available options for insuring my trip. All the quotes shown were from reputable companies and the website had enough information on coverage options. It made my purchase of insurance plan very easy.
