Went on a 10 day island hopping tour in Greece last October, 2017. I was part of a group of 16 women. The 5th day I became violently ill and had to be taken off Mykonos Island by helicopter to Athens Hospital. Being all alone and not understanding the language was the worst part of my ordeal. But Travel Insured International was absolutely wonderful! They were notified immediately and they responded immediately. They reached my husband by phone and walked him through everything that was happening to me, and stayed in contact the 5 days I was in the hospital. When my husband and daughter couldn’t reach me by phone while in the hospital, mostly due to language barrier, they took over and had 3 way conversations possible! Between my secondary insurance and Travel Insured International, I have been fully reimbursed. I highly recommend this company, and will be using them for all future travels!

I have come to believe Travel Insurance is useless except for in very RARE circumstances. Last year I did not purchase insurance for a trip that was cancelled as the taxi was in our driveway. Come to learn the insurance would NOT have covered it anyway. This year I called your company to see what assistance I could get when it appeared we would have a 9 hour delay in our flight, causing a connection to be missed. The best you could suggest is that we purchase another 1 way ticket and submit a claim when we got home.....and PERHAPS we would be reimbursed for it. Well....we all know how THAT would have turned out!!!!

I am currently holding insurance on 2-3 more trips. When they are completed we will not be purchasing any more trip insurance as it is for the most part useless. I could have had another Tanzanian safari for 2 with what I have paid you all over the years. Turns out if we had we needed to file a claim, it would have been money down the drain.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your review. Perhaps we can change your mind with a more detailed description of coverage.

    All travel insurance is written on a 'named peril" basis which means that the reason for the claim must be specifically listed in your policy as a covered reason. The number one covered reason for Trip Cancellation in all Comprehensive plans is the unexpected sickness, injury or death of you, your traveling companion or your family member. Of course, there are other covered reasons that vary by policy. As you found out, canceling your trip because there is a taxi in your driveway would not be a covered reason under any of our plans.

    We can also understand why you would be bothered because a claim representative would not confirm payment for a claim. No one will predetermine a claim until the company has received the paperwork. Nevertheless, there may very well be coverage under your policy for your Missed Connection:

    "If You miss Your cruise or tour departure because Your arrival at Your Trip destination is delayed for 3 or more hours, due to:
    a) any delay of a Common Carrier (the delay must be certified by the Common Carrier);
    b) documented weather condition preventing You from getting to the point of departure;
    c) quarantine, hijacking, Strike, Natural Disaster, terrorism or riot.
    We will reimburse You, up to the Maximum Benefit Amount shown in the Confirmation of Benefits, for:
    a) Your Additional Transportation Cost to join Your Trip; and
    b) Your Prepaid expenses for the unused land or water Travel Arrangements; and
    c) reasonable accommodation, telephone and meal expenses up to 0 per day necessarily incurred by You for which You have proof of purchase and which were not paid for or provided by any other source."

OK, I messed up by not confirming the dates of the trip with the dates that I THOUGHT I had purchased insurance for. (I purchased the insurance 10 months before the departure date when the trip dates were a bit uncertain.)

I got a reminder email from InsureMyTrip on the day I left for my vacation. I called InsureMyTrip to correct the dates -- they were off by a few days. However, I called when I was at the airport. It was too late. Neither InsureMyTrip nor C&F Travel were willing to adjust the dates of my trip. Which meant that I had no coverage for the departing or returning flights.

It would be most helpful if InsureMyTrip would send out a reminder a bit earlier when the insurance was purchased months in advance.

    Thank you for leaving feedback on this policy.

    We are sorry to learn your policy did not reflect your dates of travel. InsureMyTrip is able to amend your policy at any time up until the day before departure. Once you have left your home for your trip, we are unable to make any changes to your policy as it is now in effect.

    We appreciate your feedback on our Bon Voyage email and we find it appropriate to provide this email even sooner to our customers. We hope that this change will help eliminate the potential for travelers to travel with incorrect policy details.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions or concerns. We can be reached 7 days a week at 1-800-487-4722

In the future I will probably not join an organized tour so that coverage would be less useful. But the medical evac coverage is and always will be critical. Friends have had to be be flown to the U.S. for truly unpredictable events.

We did not have to use the insurance, but it gave us great peace of mind knowing that we had the coverage if we needed it.

So glad we got Cancel for Any Reason trip insurance through Travel Insured! I planned our Mediterranean trip in February for a September departure. As a Manager of a car dealership, his previously approved vacation was revoked. I contacted Travel Insured via email and got a quick response with forms attached and instructions to cancel all of our nonrefundable tickets with each airline. I provided hard copies of emails as proof of cancellation, with a letter from my husband's employer and the appropriate claim form. We were reimbursed 100% without a hassle.

I usually don't buy trip insurance since we're independent travelers and never do "package trips." But the airlines are very restrictive, and as travelers, we have to protect ourselves. Worldwide Protector Plus is a great, reasonably-priced product.
