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.

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.
Kevin Y. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

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.
