It's difficult to rate an insurance plan for which you didn't file a claim. The cost was reasonable.

Did not have to file a claim, so I cannot speak on how well they cover a claim.

My wife and I travel frequently, and on one occasion we did use the travel coverage. We have convinced many others to purchase travel insurance plans because you never know...

We planned a polar bear excursion to Churchill Canada more than 18 months in advance. Since this was an above average trip, trip insurance was a must. I researched other companies and found Insuremytrip to have the best coverage for the price. Registration was quick and easy on the website. Thankfully our trip did not have any interruptions and we didn't have to use our travel insurance but I had the confidence that should the need arise, we would be taken care of promptly.

It was significantly more costly than Allianz plans offered through other vehicles, i.e., the airlines. I chose not to go through the hassle of changing.
Like all insurance, it it's best when not used.

Since I did not need to use the plan (no claim filed), it is hard to say how good it really was. But it did provide coverage for the important aspects of the travel, was well explained and provided good contact information.

Fortunately, I didn't need to file a claim with Allianz, so can't really review the plan's effectiveness!

With the $300.00 cost of insurance I expected a bit more than $29.80 for my "travel delay" since it meant that I lost a day of vacation and a $150 non-refundable hotel reservation. Major tour operators insist that you purchase insurance but when placed a claim, I was told it only covers incidentals or major losses. After writing my review an adjuster can to my aid. I received $150 to recover the price of the nonrefundable hotel stay that I couldn't use because of a cancelled flight. The second check made me feel much better about travel insurance.
