I'm submitting this review with the caveat that we didn't need to make a claim. An insurance plan is really only as good as the actual coverage and the ease of making a claim and getting reimbursed. This service appears to be a great one, but I can't fully endorse any company until I've used all of their services.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are happy to hear that your trip went well and you did not have any issues that would cause you to use the plan. Travel insurance does provide peace of mind in case you do have to use it, but unfortunately, no travel insurance provider would issue you a refund after you've taken a trip.

    Your plan did have a 10 Day Review Period to request a refund after you purchase. If after you look over your policy, you find that it does not meet your needs, you can cancel it while you are inside the review period. Comprehensive travel insurance goes into effect for you the following day after you purchase a plan to cover you for Trip Cancellation.

    In the future, please consider calling us prior to purchasing a plan so that we can assist you in answering any questions that you may have. Our toll free telephone number is 800-487-4722.

I have come to believe Travel Insurance is useless except for in very RARE circumstances. Last year I did not purchase insurance for a trip that was cancelled as the taxi was in our driveway. Come to learn the insurance would NOT have covered it anyway. This year I called your company to see what assistance I could get when it appeared we would have a 9 hour delay in our flight, causing a connection to be missed. The best you could suggest is that we purchase another 1 way ticket and submit a claim when we got home.....and PERHAPS we would be reimbursed for it. Well....we all know how THAT would have turned out!!!!

I am currently holding insurance on 2-3 more trips. When they are completed we will not be purchasing any more trip insurance as it is for the most part useless. I could have had another Tanzanian safari for 2 with what I have paid you all over the years. Turns out if we had we needed to file a claim, it would have been money down the drain.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your review. Perhaps we can change your mind with a more detailed description of coverage.

    All travel insurance is written on a 'named peril" basis which means that the reason for the claim must be specifically listed in your policy as a covered reason. The number one covered reason for Trip Cancellation in all Comprehensive plans is the unexpected sickness, injury or death of you, your traveling companion or your family member. Of course, there are other covered reasons that vary by policy. As you found out, canceling your trip because there is a taxi in your driveway would not be a covered reason under any of our plans.

    We can also understand why you would be bothered because a claim representative would not confirm payment for a claim. No one will predetermine a claim until the company has received the paperwork. Nevertheless, there may very well be coverage under your policy for your Missed Connection:

    "If You miss Your cruise or tour departure because Your arrival at Your Trip destination is delayed for 3 or more hours, due to:
    a) any delay of a Common Carrier (the delay must be certified by the Common Carrier);
    b) documented weather condition preventing You from getting to the point of departure;
    c) quarantine, hijacking, Strike, Natural Disaster, terrorism or riot.
    We will reimburse You, up to the Maximum Benefit Amount shown in the Confirmation of Benefits, for:
    a) Your Additional Transportation Cost to join Your Trip; and
    b) Your Prepaid expenses for the unused land or water Travel Arrangements; and
    c) reasonable accommodation, telephone and meal expenses up to 0 per day necessarily incurred by You for which You have proof of purchase and which were not paid for or provided by any other source."

Global Alert! Preferred
I regret buying a policy from here as they have companies that use Trip Mate to "Process" claims, but they don't process the claims but just give you the run around over and over. I submitted a claim November 15 with all the correct documentation and have not been paid yet. They keep saying they mailed me a check, but constantly change the date they say they mailed it. Avoid Global Alert, Travel Safe, and TripAssure as they use this Trip Mate as a claim processor !
4-10-18 update: I finally received a check for my claim almost 5 months after submitting all the required paperwork. Insure MyTrip.com did assign an advocate to help me, but she could not find out much either, however while she was waiting to hear from them about when the check was being sent out, the check was generated and I received it today. I appreciate InsureMyTrip.com stepping up to help; I wish I had known they had someone to help back in 2017 when I started having trouble get the claim paid.

The trip included a
cruise
AXA Assistance USA Silver
We incurred extra airline costs because our cruise ship was delayed from reaching port for over 6 hours due large swells at sea and in the harbor. This delay meant we had to reschedule our airlines and did not reach home until the next day. So we had increased airline costs and had to spend an extra night in a hotel. The insurance declined to cover these costs because it defined the delay as the time the cruise ship was delayed from reaching port, not the time we were delayed from reaching our final destination. And this amout of delay did not reach the required amount (12 hours) specified in the policy.

So, my advice is to not expect the insurance to cover reasonable costs, because they will find something in the policy to disallow it.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn of the unfortunate event that occurred during your trip.

    Comprehensive plans are designed to cover as many risks as possible, but is very rare for any insurance plan to cover all possible risks. Unfortunately, it was determined that the event that interrupted your trip did not fall within the scope of Trip Delay for this specific plan.

    The AXA Assistance USA Silver plan provides 100USD per day with 500USD maximum after 12+ hours of a delay under the following terms:

    "TRIP DELAY
    We will pay You for additional expenses on a one-time basis, up to the maximum shown in the Schedule of Benefits, if
    You are delayed en route to or from the Covered Trip for 12 or more hours due to a defined Hazard.
    Additional expenses include:
    (a) any prepaid, unused, non-refundable land, air, or water accommodations;
    (b) any reasonable additional expenses incurred (meals, accommodations, local Transportation, and telephone calls);
    (c) an economy fare from the point where You ended Your Covered Trip to a destination where You can resume Your
    Covered Trip; or
    (d) a one-way economy fare to return You to Your originally scheduled return destination."

    We appreciate you using InsureMyTrip for your travel insurance needs. As a travel insurance comparison website, InsureMyTrip offers dozens of plans from different providers. In the future, please consider calling us prior to purchasing a plan so that we can assist you in selecting the most cost effective policy that covers as many of your primary concerns as possible.

I cancelled my trip& sent claim in November. After 5 months only in April your insurance could solve my claim. I was calling many many times to check my status of claim, nobody could answer my question. I was sent from one department to another. Loosing time and emotional stress. Terrible experience. I would never recommend to buy your insurance.

Purchased this plan for our Caribbean cruise. I was happy with the coverage for the money. Can’t really say much beyond that because thankfully we don’t have any claims to submit.
