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.

    Our licensed insurance experts are always happy to explain any part of the insurance policy. We are available to assist you by phone at 800-487-4722, or by chat, Monday - Friday, 7am-12am EST and Saturday - Sunday, 9am-9pm EST.

We have used Insuremytrip and AIG Travel Guard Basic for 5 trips now. We needed to file claims on 2 past trips and were completely satisfied with how quick and easy AIG was to work with. Based on our past experiences we will continue to purchase AIG Travel Guard Basic for all of our future travel plans.

I highly recommend this company to everybody. My baby had a medical issue last time and they provided all necessary support and assistance. For this specific trip I didn't have any medical issue but I was relaxed because I know I was covered by them.

Travel insurance brings peace of mind. Thankfully we have not had to file a claim, but cannot recommend this plan. Reading the reviews of others who filed claims, lead us to believe AIG is fair to customers.

While we didn’t have to use the coverage this plan provided, we felt secure knowing we had coverage if we needed it. This adds to the enjoyment of our travels, as it takes away worry and stress about possible health events. We always travel with insurance, and we have found the best prices and coverage for us through Insuremytrip.
