AIG Travel Travel Guard Essential
HORRENDOUS SERVICE, FRAUD. Purchased travel insurance specifically covering trip cancellation. Trip was cancelled and full documentation of cancellation and non-refundable costs was provided.

AIG fraudulently denying the claim and citing one technicality after another. It was bad enough that the trip was canceled now I'm in a bureaucratic nightmare

Spent $1700 for nothing

Most travel insurance included air fare. We were not flying and did not want to pay a rate that included flights. The AIG Travel program we chose fit our travel plans perfectly.

I recently spent a month in Missoula, MT and purchased AIG Travel Guard Essential for extra peace of mind in case I became ill or injured, especially because I planned to do a lot of day hiking while in Montana. The coverage was good, the price was right and I felt well-protected!
