Travel Insurance Reviews Travel Medical Plans

Most regular health insurance plans provide only partial or no coverage while you are traveling in another country. We offer several types of Travel Medical plans providing a range of benefits, such as medical coverage for pre-existing conditions, multi-trip and renewable protection, emergency medical evacuation, and coverage for long-term travel.

AIG Travel Travel Guard MedEvac Plan
Since Medicare does not cover me when overseas I needed an insurance that would work to cover any medical issues that might come up. This seemed to do it. It is still a question whether the company will come through but I'm glad it wasn't tested.

AIG Travel Travel Guard MedEvac Plan
Second time I have used Insuremytrip. First time. I had to file a claim for an injury. All was resolved very well. I will continue using Insuremytrip: value for money. Easy to use. Easy to talk to a real person.

The policy is written with the specific intent of avoiding claims. The pre-existing coverage exclusion is broad enough to drive a truck through. I have no confidence that this insurance will actually cover me or pay for anything if I actually have a problem. Not recommended.

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?
