When I compared our plan and cost with others, ours was more expensive. Disappointed in that.

I had no problems. I bought a policy for my son and he did have problems that were resolved by his coverage. He added that he was impressed by how nice everyone was.

Unfair price increase only based on reaching 70 yrs of age in spite of using this company or affiliates for the past 6 years without filing any claims.

    Comprehensive policy premiums are typically based on three factors: the cost of the trip, the length of the trip, and the ages of the travelers. Since these plans are not renewable, most travel insurance plans do not offer discounts.

It turns out you really need 250k to cover emergency evacuations. I am lucky I didn’t need to use that feature.

    Thank you for your reply. Your AIG Travel Guard Basic plan provided 100,000 USD in Emergency Medical Evacuation which provides transportation when:
    "(a) the Insured's medical condition warrants immediate transportation from the place where the Insured is injured or sick to the nearest Hospital where appropriate medical treatment can be obtained;
    (b) after being treated at a local Hospital, the Insured's medical
    condition warrants transportation to where the Insured resides, to obtain further medical treatment or to recover; or
    (c) both (a) and (b) above."

    Of course, AIG Travel Guard does offer higher limits with the Silver plan 150,000 USD, Gold plan 500,000 USD or Platinum plan 1,000,000 USD.
