I would have liked for this plan to cover emergencies related to my food allergies, an existing condition. Although I am careful, one never knows what is in food.

Global Underwriters Diplomat International
I don't normally insure a holiday or, I should say, I self-insure. It was, however, a condition of the tour company, that I should purchase. Thus I regarded it as no more than an extra cost. Used to reading reports of holiday disasters that turn out not to be covered by the insurance purchased, I viewed the transaction with suspicion and did not wade through all the terms and conditions in large and small print.

MEDEX TravMed Abroad
Travel agent offered our group a "one-size fits all" plan. Group tours are almost never cancelled and lost baggage is also not as much of a problem (especially for large groups on simple itineraries) as it once was so we focused on the issues that could really change our lives. We are retired and both 70 so we purchased a really good medical policy. It costs about $50k if you need an air ambulance evacuation from Europe to the US. This plan covered it and more for a lot less $ than the once-size fits all. Compared to the cost of the trip, this insurance was almost trivial. As it turned out, one of our elderly tour-mates fell and may need medivac from Europe to the US. Hope not but if this is needed, it will be a back breaker for them.

HCC Medical Insurance Services Atlas International
I got sick in Paris, not too serious but wanted a recommendation on an English speaking doctor. A "Dr." somebody with a heavy accent answered. Would not give his medical credentials but admitted he was not certified in the US. It didn't matter as they would not provide a referral, would not review the diagnosis, would not do anything to help. I was told to see a doctor and submit a claim. I have used other providers in the past that will give a referral, make the appointment and review the diagnosis to ensure it conforms to US standards. One company has doctors on payroll who will actually visit you in the hotel and take care of the issue.

So HCC falls far short.

They were polite and sent a follow up automated email to see if I needed to file a claim. Nice but hardly enough to take care of my issue.
