I bought the plan due to having a sick relative. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bought it, because I think the price is too high for the temporary coverage which is provided. The best result was that I didn't have to use it.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    Comprehensive plan premiums are based on the age of the travelers, trip cost and length of trip. Although you purchased an excellent plan, you may wish to call us for your next trip since there may be plans that are more competitively priced.

    Customer Care is available weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight EST and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Since no claim was filed, it's difficult to rate the insurance, but it was reassuring to have insurance

I appreciated the reminder a few days before the trip to download my policy.

I did not file a claim, so my review is about the phone contacts during the prevacation stage. My calls were always answered promptly - I did not have to go through a long menu and wait time. My calls were always answered by a polite and friendly representative.
I needed to call a number of times because we bought one plan for my son, who does not live with us, and a different plan for my husband and me. Each time I called, either to get information or to firm up a start and end date, I got a recommendation for a different, and sometimes better, plan at a lower cost. While this was welcome and appreciated, I wondered why it was not offerred initially. If I had not needed to make multiple calls, I would have had less coverage for more money. This also happened the last time that we used your service when we went to Spain in 2015.
On my next trip, I would certainly use your service to buy insurance. However, I would call back to confirm that the plan I am considering is the best that you can offer.

Most important is that I did not have to use it, but I was confident that it would have been there if I needed it.

I did not have to use the plan, so my feed-back has limited value. However, it promised good coverage and was more reasonably priced than that offered by the tour operator.

We have bought travel insurance several times through InsureMyTrip. Every time it has been easy to locate the best plan (one that provides a waiver for pre-existing conditions) and to buy it. The personnel contacted by phone have always been helpful. It seems to be getting more expensive, but then we are getting older. Fortunately I have never had to file a claim. In this I seem to resemble almost all the folks who post reviews. Last time I looked through 600-some reviews to find a person who had had claim experience. I think I found two -- and one was negative and the other positive. Would like to see more comments from people who have filed claims. The only other criticism I have of the plans is that they seem to be targeted to people who prepay a fixed cost for a trip -- like for a cruise, and not for people who pay as they go and perhaps only have pre-paid costs for air tickets and hotels (although we did have prepaid private tour costs for this last trip, to Patagonia). The only reason we usually get travel insurance is for the medical provisions, since Medicare doesn't cover problems outside the US, and we would want to be flown home if any problem occurred.

The agent I spoke with was very helpful and patient, even calling back with more information. I felt very well served.
