Most reasonable price but weak in certain coverages, especially delayed travel and lost/delayed luggage.

AXA Assistance USA Platinum
This plan provided far more coverage for a young traveler than any other I reviewed. Especially nice was the coverage for travel delays and delayed or lost luggage.

Extended trip by one day. Global Alert agent was extremely helpful in ensuring that we had complete coverage; gave us specific instructions on how to amend policy, with no additional charge.

Thank you.

C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector Lite
I am a world traveler for over 30 years and this was my first experience with your company. I found your customer service representatives to be very unprofessional and I feel your company is unethical in its practices. Purchasing trip insurance from your company was a total waste of time and money. I filed a claim and was treated like a second class citizen for doing so.
Rachel P. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

    We are very sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the service that you received from CF Travel Insured when trying to report a claim. Upon receiving your review, we did try to contact you for more information so that we could assign an "Anytime Advocate" who would support you in the claims process especially if you believe a claim has been unfairly denied, but you did not reply.

    Please accept our apologies. Although we do not know the reason for the misunderstanding, we did forward your comments to CF Travel Insured to check their phone records and review the call with their representatives.

    In the meantime, we are publishing your review, but would also like to assure you and your fellow travelers that CF Travel Insured is a very reputable company who has worked with InsureMyTrip since we first started our website in 2000. You may still wish to contact InsureMyTrip to speak with an "Anytime Advocate" who can work you through any misunderstanding. You can call us weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight ET and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM ET for assistance.

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.
