We realized how important insurance is when a member of our tour group had to be hospitalized for pneumonia and had to cancel a portion of his trip.

We had a wonderful trip to Bhutan. We had no troubles, but were satisfied this was good insurance should something unexpected occur.

It became apparent in August hat my wife needed surgery and we would not be able to go on our trip. I notified AIG and they told me what I needed to file a claim. We got the information they required and sent the papers to AIG. They processed the paperwork and sent us a check for what we had paid.

Don't think it's fair to charge more for people over 70

My son started to feel ill during our travels. It turned out to be just a cold, however, knowing we had coverage to terminate the trip early, if necessary, was very important. My daughter was in the same country 11 years ago and her trip had to be cut short for a more serious illness. Knowing we had insurance was very important to us during 14 days of travel.

Proof of plan benefits would have been shown if we had had to use it. Fortunately we didn't, so can not really evaluate. Just hope it would have meant our needs!

It gave me the coverage I wanted for a reasonable price. Thankfully, I did not have to file a claim. That would be the true test of the policy. Ease of filing a claim, helpfulness of staff, and if the policy truly insures what it says it will.

How can we rate a plan when we didn't need to use it? It was a comfort to have it even though we didn't need it.

Fortunately We did not need to file a claim. Coverage was what we needed for this trip. We would never travel without it.
