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

It is difficult to evaluate a plan when you don't need to use it.

As an Alabama Independent Insurance Agent, I knew AIG as I have represented them in an Auto program in the past. I chose them because they were familiar to me as an Agent.

InsureMyTrip web site was very easy to use and allowed us to pick the insurance policy that covered our tour to Israel at an economical price. After reviewing multiple carriers, we decided on AIG based on price, good coverage, and previous customers’ rating of them.

Unfortunately, about 2-1/2 weeks prior to our departure, my wife suffered a bad fall causing blunt force trauma to her back. Although we were hopeful she would recover in time to make the trip, she was unable to recover sufficiently to make the long flight and endure the physical demands of the 10-day tour. So four days prior to our departure we cancelled our trip. This cost us the full price of the tour.

We called AIG Claims Service, and the agent was very sympathetic and helpful. After a short interview she emailed us the proper forms, which we filled out with the help of the doctor and emailed them back to the claims department.

In a few days I got a call back from our case worker at AIG, and she indicated that our claim was accepted and that we would be receiving our check within a few days. From the time I emailed my claim until the time I received my check was about 7 days.

Based on our experience, I would highly recommend AIG for trip insurance and would certainly use them again in the future.

Brought this plan for a two week trip to Israel. It was nice to know that I had the basics covered.

My baggage was delayed, and I called Travel Guard. They were able to track my bag in better time than the airline, and gave me updated information on where it was and when it would be delivered to me. Really gave me peace of mind!
