AIG Travel Travel Guard MedEvac Plan
When traveling abroad, it is essential to have insurance for medical expenses or medical evacuation, which are not covered by Medicare and most health insurance. On a trip to Turkey, a woman in our group had appendicitis. She did not have travel insurance. She had only Medicare and a secondary health insurance plan, neither of which covered any expenses outside the U.S. She could not afford to pay for an air ambulance to have surgery back in the U.S. So she had surgery in Istanbul. Her adult daughter stayed with her, and paid out of pocket hotel room and restaurant meals while her mother was in the hospital. They had to pay up front for her medical care and hospitalization. Presumably they had to pay a high airfare home when she was well enough to travel. I always buy travel insurance. My credit card (co-branded with an airline's frequent flyer program) covers trip cancellation and interruption when I charge flights, hotels, cruises, etc. to that card (even if it's a different airline). However, that credit card does not cover medical treatments, hospitalization, or evacuation to the U.S. in case of illness or accident. This AIG Travel Guard MedEvac Plan is very reasonably priced and covers that gap including expenses for a traveling companion. Thankfully my companion and I have not needed medical treatment while traveling, but having this coverage gives us peace of mind.

Never having a need to make a claim I can’t tell whether the insurance is of any value but knowing it was available was reassuring.

The only issue is that the plan did not appear to offer adventure sports coverage

While I didn't need to file a claim, having this insurance gave me peace of mind while on my hiking trip in Portugal. Getting the information I needed to purchase the insurance was very easy on the website.

AIG Travel Travel Guard MedEvac Plan
AIG was excellent. We purchased this policy for a cruise, mainly to insure against the astronomical cost of a possible helicopter evacuation at sea. My wife had a medical emergency off the Mexican coast and we had to disembark in port for surgery. We are on Medicare, which covers nothing outside the U.S. Our Mutual of Omaha supplemental policy paid for 80 percent of the medical. The AIG policy covered all the rest. Both claims were handled very quickly. This was medical insurance only. The AIG policy did not cover any cost of returning to the U.S. or the cruise. However, this was a very affordable plan and satisfied our needs.

Always vascilate on how much to spend on what is unlikely to happen but in the end I am not comfortable taking risk should an injury occur that would eradicate my “traveling budget” for the remainder of my life!
