Global Underwriters Diplomat International
We are not satisfied with Global Underwriters.
We will be filling a claim for out-of-pocket expenses related to treatment for a fractured wrist my wife received while traveling in Chile. She received medical care in Buenos Aries; x-rays, medical assessment and a cast. The doctor informed us that my wife required surgery to repair that brake so we elected to return home early to be treated by our local doctor. We notified Global Underwriters of the situation and were told that our insurance would not cover the cost of an early return home. We were told that they would cover the surgery in Buenos Aries but not the travel expense to return home early to be treated there.
The Global representative actually laughed at us and told us that we bought the wrong coverage.
I should note that the total cost for the medical care in Buenos Aries was $110. With a deductible of $100 Global owes us $10. We are still had the out of pocket expense of $1,300 in changes in travel arrangements, not to include the lost value of our vacation because we ended up missing 1/3rd of the package group tour we were on at the time of the incident. Further, we paid $280 for the insurance package so in total we will have out of pocket expense $1,570 assuming we get paid the $10 Global owes us.
Anyone who is traveling abroad should know that most trauma injuries incurred while traveling are ambulatory and should insure that the coverage includes early return due to injury. Emergency medical evacuation does not cover ambulatory situations.
Also, check with your own health insurer to see if they provide primary coverage for illness or injury when traveling abroad. We discovered that our health care provider would provide primary care coverage while we were overseas to include referral to local medical facilities in the event of illness or injury, coverage of medical transport to local facilities and translator services if necessary.
We are not happy campers! We would have been better off if we had not purchased the insurance in the first place.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn about the injury that was suffered. Unfortunately, the Global Underwriters Diplomat International plan does not cover Trip Interruption due to an injury or illness of an insured person. Most Single-Trip Medical plans cover Trip Interruption due to the death of an immediate family member or a Natural Disaster which destroys your principal place of residence.

    Comprehensive travel insurance plans do cover Trip Interruption due to an unforeseen, accidental injury, emergency illness, or death of the insured(s), traveling companion(s), and family member(s).

    In the future, please call us at 800-487-4722 so we can assist you in selecting plans that adequately cover your primary concerns.

It's difficult to rate a plan which was never used. It was purchased to provide peace of mind. Gratefully, no claims will be filed so I cannot honestly rate how satisfied I am.

I selected AXA Assistance Gold plan after a comprehensive review of other competing plans as provided by Insuremytrip.com and I was very satisfied with the process, albeit no claims.

It seemed like a good plan at a fair cost. I had no need to file a claim so cannot give a rating on this.

InsureandGo Global Platinum
I used this company to insure a pretty expensive bicycle tour. Half way through the 6-month trip I had to leave for a family emergency that was a "covered benefit." I was able to file a claim and recoup a significant portion of my money. The most irksome part of this company is that their policy is poorly written and it is extremely difficult to know exactly what will be covered in an emergency. Part of my claim was denied because I misread just a few words of the policy when I bought it, thus I wish the policy was more clear. Overall, the insurance was way less expensive than any other policy, and they covered what otherwise would have been a huge loss.

We did not use the InsureandGo Global Platinum plan, but like every insurance product, it is piece of mind only. As for plan cost, we relied on the printed comparative values described on your website.

John Hancock Gold
Have purchased travel insurance many times through InsureMyTrip, but this was the first time I needed to file a claim. We were unable to take a trip because I broke my arm, and when we contacted the insurer they promptly sent the needed forms via email. Once completed, we were able to scan and email the documents back, and they promptly confirmed receipt. Processing time was estimated at 3 weeks, but the check for the full amount arrived before then. Absolutely no complaints, and I will not hesitate to purchase a similar insurance plan from John Hancock in the future.
