Fortunately we had no use for the policy in regard to our trip. For me it was important to have as my Medicare is worthless out of the country. Only note is I later found the identical plan offered a few bucks cheaper through our travel company.

Luckily, I did not need to access my insurance. It was valuable for my peace of mind. The cost was half of what the travel company was offering for the same coverage, making it a good value. I will continue to use your company as I continue to travel.

Although I did not need to file a claim, having this insurance provided me with a great deal of peace of mind. Our connecting flight to our international flight was delayed three times and we barely made our international flight to Israel. I kept telling myself that we could resolve this, if necessary, through our Allianz insurance, but we fortunately did not need to do that. One more reason not to travel without trip insurance!

We purchased the insurance, which we thought was reasonable enough. However, fortunately we did not have to use it. So, we really do not have any experience to report.

I've never been a big fan of trip insurance and only reluctantly purchased it for this trip. I didn't need it for anything on this trip which is probably a good thing. And since insurance is best at protecting for catastrophic events, I can't really determine if this would have covered me in the event of a medical issue or serious problem. Fortunately. :)

The cost was $80 to insure a $1500 trip. Not outrageous, but, in all my traveling to-date (40+ years, all around the world), I've never used trip insurance before and still am not convinced it's necessary. But, as I age, I guess it might make sense...although beware the pre-existing coverage exclusion if you don't purchase coverage close to when you originally purchase the trip.
