AIG Travel Travel Guard Basic
AIG was recommended to us by friends who travel extensively. While we did not have to use it, we were well aware of the potential hazards of traveling abroad as well as the possibility of emergencies occurring back home. The plan seemed to be a good value for us. We will definitely use your service again for future travel protection.

since we didn't even get to go on our cruise, I can't even comment except that to get the insurance the website was very easy to use. I will be using it again in the future

Thankfully, none of us who traveled needed the insurance: a safe trip! Nonetheless, I was glad to have it. I wish it were not quite so expensive, especially as one gets older.

Easy to purchase with all the important coverage we wanted. However, our traveling friends were able to purchase comparable coverage through American Airlines for 1/3 the price we paid. Perhaps a special deal.

The insurance coverage seemed good at a reasonable cost for a pre-paid, non-refundable expensive vacation. Fortunately, I did not file a claim, but we came close when my 100-year old mother suffered a fatal fall several weeks before we departed. Good to know that coverage was available had it been needed.

AIG Travel Travel Guard Basic
My trip from Houston to Martha’s Vinyard was cancelled because of suspension of ferry service from high surge and heavy rains along the New England coast due to the hurricane Jose. I never received the decision on my claim in writing and my wife tells my that someone left a message that my claim with AIG has been denied. I Wasted $100 to protect two air tickets worth $800. Because hurricane Jose was named on September 5 and I bought my insurance for a trip on September 21, the hurricane was foreseeable. The purpose of insirance is to cover such risks and who knows where these hurricanes go or disappear in ten days. This TravelGaurd is a big scam and as a traveler you see these ambiguous fine prints when you have purchased the policy. What a sham and dishonesty it is. Will never buy another travel insurance again. I am not happy with insuremytrip either for not supporting their customers.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this policy.

    The policy states: "The Company will reimburse the Insured for Forfeited, prepaid Trip Cost up to the Maximum Limit shown in the Schedule or Declarations Page for Trips that are canceled prior to the scheduled Departure due to any of the Unforeseen events shown above."

    Once a storm is named, it becomes a foreseen event under any policy and not covered under the Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption. It is very important to read through your policy prior to purchasing your plan, to see exactly what is covered and excluded. We also recommend that you give us a call and speak with one of our licensed agents. We are available 7 days a week and go find you an appropriate policy for your concerns. We are also able to go through the policy details with you, and explain what is excluded.

    Please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-487-4722 with any questions or concerns.
