Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare Value
Might be worth it for catastrophic coverage but not much else.

On extended travel, I called for help refilling my prescription medications while in the UK. Had to give a LOT of info over the phone to someone seemed very ill-informed about the policy -- I had to explain to her. Said she'd get back to me. Several days later (!), someone emailed and just offered a list of medical practices I could visit in area, ALL of which were inappropriate/useless (e.g., cardiology only practice when I needed a general practice referral to get a UK prescription). I found better information just Googling on my own. I had to solve the problem myself rather than getting any help. And why did it take several days for someone to reply with useless information?

Even worse: My spouse had an injury during our trip for which he sought treatment in the UK. We started a claim for it but then saw that the documentation required to fill out was so extensive, that it would take several hours of work for us to complete all the required forms, so we gave up as not being worth our time. His medical costs were less than $500. There should be different documentation requirements for small claims like ours vs. more expensive ones!

In short, we tried to use this policy but it turned out to be worthless to us.

    Thank you for your feedback. Berkshire Travel Protection is a comprehensive plan and does offer to wide range of benefits. However, we did forward your request to Berkshire Hathaway who did contact their 3rd party provider and agree that their provider failed to provide you with the level of service that you had a right to expect. Berkshire Hathaway offers their apology and appreciates your bringing this issue to their attention.

We had a bag either stolen or lost off baggage cart. it was a carry on bag. Was told it was not covered because it wasn't checked in. That was not acceptable to us. will never use this Insurance company again.

We have never made a claim in any of my travels but am always more comfortable knowing that protection is there should we ever need it. When you call in to set up a new travel plan, everyone we have ever talked with is friendly and professional and has our past history ready to discuss with us. Would not go on a trip without calling these folks.

A friend fell and broke her ankle. She asked for assistance in contacting airlines and airports to provide her with a wheel chair, no claim was made, no money was requested. Berkshire Hathaway declined request for assistance. No more InsureMyTrip for me or my friends.

    Thank you for your feedback, below is a response directly from Berkshire Hathaway:
    "We are very sorry to hear about your friend’s injury while traveling. We tried to investigate the call for assistance with our assistance team after you contacted us, however without your friend’s contact information, we don’t have the details of your friend’s request. It appears your friend may not have been an insured with a BHTP travel insurance policy. It is our policy to try and assist any traveler in need who calls, however please understand we must first assist our BHTP insureds. We encourage you to reach out to us at 844-411-BHTP or through email at assist@bhtp.com so we can better understand what happened."

Only major medical and evacuation coverage is important.
Given the restrictions and limitations of USA insurance policies (or even medicare in recent years) a policy for is major medical and evacuation coverage is needed for most international travel.
Ideally there would be a travel policy that only covers international major medical and international evacuation at a lower rate than a more inclusive policy.
On this trip my wife's luggage was delayed for 3 days. We had a very busy itinerary scheduled so we got by with stuff in our carry on luggage. Besides our scheduled itinerary we were busy making phone calls and Emails to both connecting airlines and the London baggage delivery partner pushing each to find and to deliver our luggage.
Since the Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare policy only pays out for items purchased during the delayed luggage interval there was no claim we could file to be reimbursed.
