AIG Travel Travel Guard Basic
It is impossible to review any insurance plan when a claim has not been filed, because the response to the claim is the true measure of a policy/plan.

This plan is an excellent value. It covered everything I felt I needed and at a reasonable cost. It gave me peace of mind during my two-week trip overseas.

We did not have to use the insurance so cannot say how difficult or easy the process would have been. However, it did give us a lot of peace of mind to know it was there if something would have happened.

Rates are high averaging over 5% of trip cost and providing unnecessary benefits. However, it is insurance against unforeseen events.

Our trip to southeast Asia was planned to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Just weeks before we were scheduled to depart, my wife developed a bacterial infection in her left knee which required surgery. We have purchased travel insurance for years, primarily because my mother is 92 years old. We never thought we would have to cancel a trip because something happened to us. We filed our claim with all the required documentation, and in less than three weeks the claim was paid. We are now looking forward to rebooking the same trip next year. If anyone is skeptical about the need for travel insurance, our experience should erase any doubt. We invested hundreds for protection and saved ourselves tens of thousands of dollars.

Hello,
I was very glad to have obtained this safety net insurance. This was a very active trip but fortunately nothing happened
that required me to fill out insurance forms. I hope you can keep your rates low, it is very difficult to add extra insurance
in this expensive and complicated world.

    We can certainly understand your concern on pricing. Premiums for Comprehensive plans are based on trip cost, age of traveler and length of trip. Although you picked a Basic plan, AIG has a great deal of brand recognition from their many years in the travel insurance industry in addition to doing an excellent job in handling claims.

The tags were a nice touch. I felt more secure with them on my suitcases. I did not have any problems, so I did not have any claims. I will use this company again for my next trip.
