Travelex Travel Basic
I was glad I did not have to use the plan. But felt it was very costly compared to other Travelex plans I have purchased.

    Thank you for submitting a review to assist your fellow travelers.

    Comprehensive plan premiums are calculated based on your age, trip cost and length of trip. Since your previous Travelex Basic plan was based on a total trip cost of 2226 USD, you would have seen a considerable increase in premium for this trip since it has a total trip cost of 6184 USD.

My wife and I were going to be out of the country for a couple of weeks and I needed to find a plan that would cover our travel expenses in case an older family member, who was not going, would prevent us from taking this trip. Most plans' pre-existing condition, would kick in even though that Family member was not insured. That could mean I would not be able to recoup my travel expenses. I needed the assurance that if anything happened, before or during our trip, I would be financially compensated. The people at InsureMyTrip, help me find the right plan.

I had a VERY large kidney stone the week we were scheduled to leave and we had to cancel our trip. I filed a claim for everything that I could not cancel. They paid all of the claim and within a few weeks. I will use them again.

Global Alert! Preferred
After we submitted our claim, with all required documentation, we waited 13 weeks before receiving our checks. Staff at the company handling our claim said that they had a backlog due to a large volume of hurricane-related claims. That may be true, but they should have put on more staff, or taken some other action to increase their claim processing capacity.

    You will be pleased to know that Global Alert / TripMate did follow through on your suggestion to add more staff. However, hiring is only the first step followed by intense and detailed training that spread over several months.

    We are pleased to hear that you did receive your claim checks even though it took 13 weeks. Now that the recent hires have completed training. Global Alert / TripMate claims are being processed on a more timely basis.

Its hard to write a review for a policy you never needed to use however it did provide a piece of mind.

Fortunately we did not have to file a claim, so I can’t really comment on how good you are. But your prices are more reasonable than the plans provided by the tour company.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Had to cancel our entire trip due to illness. This was the first time we had to make use of our travel insurance. Our claim was paid promptly. We are grateful for the ease of filing our claim and for the speed in which the claim was paid. Will definitely make use of this insurance again.

We were glad we did not need to request your services, but having your policy gave us peace of mind as we traveled too far away from (potential) necessary services. Thanks for easing our minds!

TruTravel Insurance Premier
We didn’t have to use this, which is a good thing. It gave us peace of mind for our trip to South Africa. We usually purchase travel insurance for our long trips to foreign countries. The cost was very fair and communication was good with TruTravel. We would purchase again for future trips.

Given the odds that the occurence would not occur keeping 25% of the premium for a cancel for any reason coverage is "hoggish"!
