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
Thankfully our 5 week overseas journey had no health issues. Seeing the health care facilities in multiple countries convinced me this insurance was a good decision for 2 aging people.

The pricing seems to be so excessive for the coverage. All companies seems to be this way. Sad.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
Early in August, I filed a claim for slightly less than $200 and submitted all necessary supporting materials. To date (Oct 3), I've received no information on the claim from GeoBlue. When I looked up the claim via the internet, the claim file indicated that the amount claimed was subject to a deductible, hence no payment. I was unaware of a deductible, but that's on me. What I don't like is the utter lack of communication.
George V. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

I spent three weeks in Japan on business and purchased a plan for medical coverage. Did not end up needing it, but enjoyed the peace of mind knowing I had coverage.

The purchase was easy and straight forward. I did not need to file a claim so I can not comment on how that might have gone.
