We always buy trip insurance for trips out of the country. Clark Howard turned us on to "Insure my Trip" as a way to get around the airline and cruise line coverages that are nowhere near as good or as good a value. Gives me peace of mind when traveling. Wouldn't travel without it!
Melinda P. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

Global Alert! Preferred
6% of the Total cost of the trip is pretty expensive.
2 months is a long time to wait for reimbursement.
MUST CALL rather than track your claim online ....customer service representatives are quite competent and willing to assist!
I believe the settlement was very fair. Just be aware that booking fees and cancellation fees incurred with a wholesaler (in this case United Cruises) are not covered. Our uncovered amount was only $125.00. I would suggest booking directly with a cruise line or airline in order not to incur these charges.

I did not need to use the plan but it was definitely worth the cost to have it at the ready should something
have gone awry on my trip.

Our policy gave us peace of mind during our trip to Costa Rica. We did not have any problems but know we would have been helped if there was a need.

MEDEX TravMed Choice Outbound
Toward the end of my trip I became pretty sick. We were in a far flung place, so I asked the tour guide to call his company and tell them I wanted to return home. (They had my insurance information.) I was told that I could sign off the tour and I'd then be on my own. I was way too ill to handle anything myself, and there was no phone access.
So all I could do was stay in bed alone for the rest of the trip.
My question is this: if one is really ill, as i was, then just how is one meant to contact the insurance company and arrange to be helped?

Luckily we did not have to file a claim. It felt good to know we had coverage in case something went wrong.
