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.

GeoBlue Voyager Essential
My tour company *required* travel medical insurance, so I didn't have an option to just take my chances. GeoBlue had a bare-bones plan that met the tour requirements at a reasonable price.

I had no covered incidents during my trip, so I can't speak to the claim process, which would be the overwhelmingly most important characteristic for a review.

HTH Worldwide TravelGap Excursion
My husband dued in a small hospital in a jungle town in Peru. Since it was not "in network" and a very unsophisticated place, i ended up paying for everything in cash, including treatment, diagnostic, medication and documents. I contacted you before he died. You were utterly useless.

I am still in Peru trying to get the body out and home . He died on friday, this is tuesday and it is a byzantine system that is endless bureaucracy and forms, i have no interest intalking to your representative until i and the remains are safely home.

This is an addendum to earlier review. HTH eventually paid for the three hours my husband spent in s hospital emergency room . But know this: Do not die of natural causes. Your death benefit of $50,000 does not apply. It is a massive loophole in the policy.

    As the traveler indicated, the 50,000 USD death benefit is for 24 Hour Accidental Death only. Travel Insurance plans do not offer life insurance benefits for sickness or illness.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
We did not need our plan due to health issues during our trip. It was required by the tour group. In our search for a comprehensive plan for a reasonable price, GeoBlue stood out. We are in excellent health and in our early 60's, so this plan gave us comfort to know we were covered as we huffed and puffed up the mountain-side to the Sun-Gate of Machu Picchu.

GeoBlue Trekker Choice
Fortunately we didn't have to file a claim for this trip. However, our experience with analyzing our choices and choosing this policy were excellent. I read the policy and then called costumer service with some detailed questions. The representative spent a full hour on the phone answering my questions. She was able to answer all but one of the top of her head and consulted with another representative about the other one. The coverage provided was excellent for a great price. Highly recommended.

never had to use it so I don't know how they are when you have to file a claim, but it's good to know I had insurance that covered the things I wanted to do in South America that were a little extreme

    Thank you very much for your comments. However, we would like to advise your fellow travelers reading this review that you chose to purchase the optional Adventure Sports Rider which provided coverage for many sports activities that would otherwise be excluded under this plan, such as:

    (c) participation in professional athletic events, motor sport
    or motor racing, including training or practice for the same;
    (d) mountaineering where ropes or guides are normally used. The ascent or descent of a mountain requiring the use of specialized equipment, including but not limited to pick-axes, anchors, bolts, crampons, carabineers and
    lead or top-rope anchoring equipment;
    (f) operating or learning to operate any aircraft, as student,
    pilot or crew (does not apply if Adventure Sports
    Coverage is purchased);
    (g) air travel on any air-supported device, other than a regularly scheduled airline or air charter company...

    All plans have exclusions that vary between plans and even states. Your fellow travelers should always review the Certificate that is included in each quote or call Customer Care at (800) 487-4722 if they have questions on activities that may be excluded under a plan.

Although I did not file a claim, I was very pleased with the enrollment process and cost of the coverage provided. I will definitely use InsureMyTrip for my next trip.

Didn't need to use the policy (Thankfully!). I assume the coverage would have met our needs and it was very reasonable priced.
