Luckily I did not need to use the insurance plan for my trip. It did make me feel more relaxed and safe that if anything occurred that was covered by the insurance I would be able to file a claim.

I'm glad I had a plan and didn't have to use it. You don't know how good your plan is until you do use it so to review it seems silly.

Claim process and information requirements was a bit excessive. Had to raise an issue with a supervisor about what the claim adjuster decided. The supervisor resolved the issue. Still the claim process was like other companies. In the end they covered the claim to my satisfaction. Will continue doing business with them.

Since we never had to file a claim, it's hard to rate the policy. It provided comfort that we had a policy in case we needed to cancel our trip.

I was most interested in the added plan covering CDW for the rental car.(apparently necessary for
the State I reside in). $9 a day is a lot better than that offered by the Car Rental Co. For that price
I received coverage which is primary....I have experience with this and will never go without it...in my
opinion, forget your CC and coverage provided by your own insurance .. this is better.

RE: trip coverage, more $ than I believe constitutes a no brainer....but fortunately didn't need

I will definitely continue to use "Insure My Trip" services when travelling

We were very fortunate, that we had no delays, missed flights or lost luggage for this trip to Europe. We went on a river cruise & one couples luggage didn't arrive for 6 days. The airline knew the luggage was in Amsterdam but made no attempts to get luggage to customers sooner. Another couple on a past trip fell on slippery cobble stones from rain & wife broke wrist & elbow on opposite arms. Required surgery & 13K to pay before leaving hospital. Several other couples with lost luggage for shorter periods on this trip also. None of the couples mentioned had insurance.
We have had delays over 24 hrs, lost luggage up to 3 months, etc on past trips. air travel today is so "Not fun" that chances are greater that something is going to happen eventually. we never took out insurance in the past but now we do, just worth it to know assistance is available if you need it.
