We did not have to use the insurance but were relieved to have it in our back pocket, just in case.

A must have for frequent travelers. The Trekker plan is a fantastic deal. They paid my ship's medical bills 3 times with no fuss (including one visit to a dentist).

I did not implement the plan, or should I say it wasn't needed, so I don't really know how user friendly it is but I traveled with a lighter heart thinking I was covered.

We've never filed a claim, so we haven't had to test that crucially important dimension of all insurance policies, but the coverage appears to be what we seek: medical evacuation from a foreign country in the event of a medical emergency. The medical coverages are second-tier after our primary insurance, which is our preference. The cost of the policy seems reasonable, and is, of course, much less than policies with first-tier medical status.

No claims filed. So it is hard to tell how good the plan really is.

This plan offered medical coverage abroad without exclusions for pre-existing conditions. It was reasonable in cost, and I felt it to be of good value for the benefits its covered.
