Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare Value
I had to bother a claim worker several times to get any info on the plan I purchased as I received nothing showing plan number, or anything showing I purchased a plan. Fortunately she was able to search out and send me some info showing I had bought a plan even though it was not her area. Someone should have sent me info on the plan I bought and a receipt at least.

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.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare Value
The insurance world is very complex and a bit difficult to understand in many ways. I got this insurance for this recent trip, I had a very unpleasant, traumatic and disturbing situation during the trip, I called the number provided from abroad and the person who answer the phone was very unhelpful, No empathy and no compassion at all. I wish she or someone she cares would be in the same situation I was so she will know how it feels.

Before we made our decision to purchase travel insurance, we had questions about specific circumstances that might require us to cancel our trip. We called Berkshire Hathaway and spoke to a representative who carefully listened to our concerns and answers our questions clearly. We were pleased with the customer service we received and felt confident with our insurance coverage.

This insurance plan gave me peace of mind for our 45 day trip to Europe this summer. Luckily, we had no troubles and didn't have to make a claim. For a small cost, we were sure that in the event of something unexpected, we would have no worries. I highly recommend this company.

We always carry insurance for our trips to Italy and we have always used Insure My Trip. We know the price of insurance goes up every year, and we regret this fact of life.
Thank you for your service. Until next year!

Since I didn't have a claim to file, it's hard to know how good you might have been. I did feel better knowing I had the coverage.
