Fortunately, I did not have to file a claim so I cannot comment on dealing with the company. However, the price was reasonable compared to similar coverage.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this plan.

    The policy you have purchased only covers a single trip, starting the day you leave your home until the day you return back home. This policy does not cover multiple trips. However, Allianz does not charge you based on the length of your trip. If you were to travel for a month-long period or two, the cost would not change based on those dates.

    Please feel free to contact us by phone if you have any further questions or concerns. Our licensed representatives are avaiable 7 days a week and can be reached at 1-800-487-4722.

Used it once before and had a good experience when I had to collect for a plane ticket we could not use due to illness. This seemed expensive, but I went with your company because of the speed and ease with which it had dealt with the previous trip.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this policy.

    Each Company will base the premiums of their plans by 3 main factors; (1) the ages of the travelers, (2) the length of your trip from home to home and (3) the total cost of your pre-paid trip cost. As the traveler's ages change, trip costs increase or the length of the trip is extended, the prices will also change accordingly.

    Please feel free to give us a call when you plan your next trip. We have licensed representatives available 7 days a week to help find the best policy for you, at the lowest premium. We can be reached at 1-800-487-4722.

I have used Insuremytrip several times. I have been completely satisfied in the past. The reason for my lower rating on this trip is that Cuba requires the purchase of Cuban medical insurance while in country so the cost of medical insurance through Allianz Global Assistance was something I considered unnecessary but it was an all inclusive policy.

While we did not have to use the policy, it was a wonderful price. I had researched several options and plans. And this is a trusted, well established company. Actually we have several annuities with this company, so I was very happy to see them listed. They are also I believe No. 1 in travel insurance policies. Please compare them with the ones offered at the time of booking. These plans are the "Cheesecake" money for many travel agencies and are very expensive compared to Allianz. This is a good policy and covers all your traveling needs. And you know they will be there.

Had to cancel our entire trip due to illness. This was the first time we had to make use of our travel insurance. Our claim was paid promptly. We are grateful for the ease of filing our claim and for the speed in which the claim was paid. Will definitely make use of this insurance again.

I have been buying travel insurance for some time now. I bought it again for a trip to Europe (Spain, France, Portugal), but I returned sick from a month-long cruise and had to cancel my Europe trip, which was 9 days away. I filled out the form, voluntarily submitted a doctor's office receipt showing my diagnosis and I'm happy to say that 100% of my trip was reimbursed. I'm delighted with InsureMyTrip and will continue to use them faithfully on my travels. On a side note, while on our 30-day cruise our travel agent, who went with us, fell on the pier just off the ship. The ship's doctor and staff took care of her, took her to the hospital for x-rays (broken nose), and removed sutures. Insurance is always the best investment on any trip!

I filed a claim against by policy after a broken wrist prevented me from making a trip to Italy. My claim was processed during the time promised after my supporting documents were received and I was very pleased with the processing process. The only thing that makes give 3 stars instead of 5 is that the website gave me errors when I tried to upload my supporting documents and it took several tries before I received an acknowledgment that my documents were received via e-mail which delayed my claim reimbursement. If that process had not been so frustrating, I would be given a 5 star rating without hesitation!
