I didn't have to file a claim, so I can't speak to their claim service. However, the coverage was good for an expensive trip we took.

i was concerned that the insurance coverage excluded the most expensive portion of my trip which was Alaska fish. if something had happened and the cargo was lost and spoiled then short of a nice long visit to Alaska there would be nothing to show for it. That's not right. if you are in the insurance business than do it 100%. I dont care to hear anymore excuses as to why you wont insure the fish. If that's the only response you can offer me than don't bother responding. It doesn't mean i wont use your service in the future. Only that i am not 100% satisfied.
FYI the fish made it home safely.
thanks

It did give me peace of mind knowing I had coverage in case of medical, political and theft situations. However, it took me a long time to read through materials to decide which plan to choose.

since I didn't file a claim it's very hard to rate the coverage.

It is too bad we need it...but since we do, this is an easy company to work with. We filed a claim on a previous trip for delays that ate up part of our bike and barge trip. Were very satisfied.

I really appreciated the e-mail from InsureMyTrip right before I left with all the details of the insurance including phone numbers and a smart phone app. I felt very secure during my trip. There were two medical evacuations during the week on our cruise ship, so you never know when you will need this. Fortunately, I didn't have to make a claim.

All the reviews I've read about the product were good to excellent - although each was qualified by the fact that a claim wasn't made. I did make a valid claim and experienced misinterpretation and denial. My claim arose because of a skipped port of call which found me in Southampton rather than Le Havre. AIG's original position was that because the delay was weather related, and my claim was for reimbursement of costs incurred within 24 hours of the delay, no payment would be made. I finally prevailed in getting the adjuster to accept my position that I was covered under Trip Interruption Benefits paragraph (b) - I won the battle but not without a good deal of back and forth. So I'd have to say that the plan works well if you don't have to make a claim but not so well if you do make a claim - Buyer beware"
