Travel Insurance Reviews GeoBlue Trekker Essential

The GeoBlue Trekker Essential is a multi-trip Medical plan which offers emergency medical coverage while you are traveling abroad. This plan covers trips up to 70 days in length (per trip) that you will be taking outside the country during the year. The Trekker Essential plan does require you to have primary health insurance in place, but there is no exclusion for pre-existing conditions. This plan has lower limits than the Trekker Choice plan.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
We did not file a claim, but did use the telehealth service when my husband tested positive for COVID-19. It was reassuring to be able to speak with a doctor familiar with European rules for isolation and also testing needed to return to the USA. Next time I’d buy coverage for an extra week as our trip was extended due to his positive test and a flight cancellation beyond our control.

Thank goodness we did not need to file a claim and were healthy for our entire trip. We hope that if we needed help from the service plan we would have been pleased

While I fortunately didn't have reason to use insurance on this trip, I liked the opportunity to book an annual multiple-trip policy. Nice to know I'm all set for my next trip.

Policy was not needed but was necessary for "peace of mind" while on vacation.

I’m glad I didn’t need it, but having the plan made our medical concerns disappear.

I also wish we had purchased trip interruption insurance since one of us had to abort the trip due to extreme altitude sickness. The trip was cut in half essentially loosing $2250 worth of travel experience. Insure My Trip personnel were very helpful to explain that if we incurred any medical expenses we should file a claim. However, we did not incur any medical expenses. She just had to get to a lower altitude for relief.

Luckily we didn't need to use the plan benefits, but comforting to know we'd be covered on the out-of-country trip and for trips for the next year.
