Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Best thing was not worrying about what 'might' happen.
Actually the BEST thing was not needing your help - worth every penny.

    Thank you for providing your feedback. There are 3 main factors that determine premium costs: the cost of the trip, the length of the trip, and the travelers ages.

    In the future, if you are looking for guidance in selecting a travel insurance plan, please consider contacting our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to assist you.

I had no problems overseas and never had to request assistance -- but I felt such relief in knowing that if it had been necessary, Alianz would have been there for me. As someone who travels alone, such peace of mind is priceless. I plan to use Allianz whenever and wherever I travel in the future. Bravo for your great customer service team.

Hard to rate satisfaction with a product we didn't use but the InsureMyTrip website is convenient and easy to use. Any phone contact I have ever had with them has been professional and productive.

    I don't know why the review above indicates I would not recommend this plan to a friend/relative. I am neutral on that aspect as we didn't use it. It must be an automatic response on the site.

I just read some bad reviews about Allianz. As I really didn't have a claim, I don't know how good coverage is.

Travel insurance is too expensive. I do not need travel health insurance, just insurance for trip delay or interruption, but am forced to buy a bigger package than needed. Hundreds of dollars to insure for a ten days is too much,

The plan provided a sense of security for the trip to Iceland even though the time frame was short. As an older traveler you realize how fast an unexpected event can occur.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
My husband had a dental emergency while we were on our trip which resulted in over $1,000 in unexpected dental expenses. We didn't even initially realize there was dental coverage on our insurance until we were again purchasing an insurance play through Insure My Trip/Allianz for 2018 and noticed there was dental coverage. I contacted the insurance company, was e-mailed the forms, gathered the information, submitted it and were expeditiously reimbursed at the maximum level of coverage for the plan we purchased. We were very happy with the competent, courteous care we received. We will continue to insure our trips whenever possible through you!

It's always better to have insurance and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

I was glad not to have to use it. Better to have and not use.
