AIG Travel Travel Guard Essential
I found the plans to be confusing. I think when the plan covers a home rental in Florida, you should be able to have red tide included, as it not only impacts your activities, but also can affect your respiratory health. I thought the hurricane wordage was confusing as well. I am thankful I did not have to file for any reason. We were driving to Florida, and there was way too much info about plane reservations, delays, etc.

I had a bad experience of not “reading the fine print” and I had a weather hazard event that caused disruption in my trip and my claim was denied because I did not read the fine line of how those events are categorized. I felt it was useless policy and didn’t help me at all when I needed it.
