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.

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.

I bought this policy since I would be traveling for an extended period in Europe on my own. It gave me extra confidence knowing that I was covered should anything happen. I didn’t need it, but would buy it again for other trips.

I purchased the insurance for a 1 WEEK NON COVERED BY MY TOUR AS i WAS OUTSIDE THE TOUR FOR JUST THAT WEEK. Thank GOD I HAD NOT NEEDED TO USE IT. but do understand it is good for all trips I take within the ONE year time period of date of purchase.

Fortunately I did not have to avail of my cover (as in many years previously) but I felt comfortable that the cover I required would be there If needed. Thank you.

We fortunately did not need to file any claims due to illness or accident. It was very reassuring to have this coverage in the event we became ill especially since Medicare does not provide coverage when out of the country.

So far the best type of insurance - wasn’t needed. I felt comfortable knowing we had it. Will be happy to rate it if I need to use it

Thanks for show of interest,

Although I did ask for doctors or hospitals in network in the area where I was staying and got a response after three days, I ended up not needing the care after all.
