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
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.

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.

There’s nothing better than having peace of mind as you travel abroad. I’m so glad I took out this insurance even though I didn’t need it it gave me peace.

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.

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.
