Global Underwriters Diplomat International (Any Country - No U.S. Visit)
I did not use the insurance, so I do not know how good it "would have been." However, it was comforting to know I had it just in case.

We had no accidents or illnesses on our trip, but knowing we had protection is something happened was well worth the price of the coverage.

Very easy to enroll in the plan. Fortunately we did not have to use the coverage. It gave us the piece of mind knowing the coverage was there in the event we did need it. We will definitely use it again on future trips, Thank you!

Fortunately we did not need to file a claim as our trip to Australia was trouble-free. It was however reassuring to know that we were covered had there been a problem.

I covered just what I was after and the cost was decent. We were just protecting us in case of an unusual event happening preventing us from going or causing us to interrupt our trip mid way.

Global Underwriters Diplomat International (Any Country - No U.S. Visit)
Was fantastic in terms of email correspondence, coverage, info provided, easy to buy and total cost (11 bucks only!!). I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has to travel abroad and especially those who need to show trip coverage for their visa applications.

Denmark for example has the stupid requirement that your health insurance coverage explicitly state the amount covered is atleast $40000. Now if my policy states 'Unlimited', one would assume that's more than 40grand. But the bureaucrats at Copenhagen want to see only 40grand - since in their way of thinking a billionaire could obviously have millions in a single bank account to cover any unforseen medical expense but not have 40grand on his health policy. Inexplicable!

I bought this as a travel insurance proof of coverage for these exact bureaucrats and was pleasantly surprised with how good their coverage and explanations were. Absolute recommend.

Not much to review since we didn't have to file a claim, but I would use them again if traveling that long another time.

The plan looks good on paper and the staff was very helpful. However, I won't really know how good it is until I have to use it. Fortunately, I have not had to test it. It does provide peace of mind and that is worth something.

This is one of those necessary evils associated with travel. I'm grateful that a claim was not necessary, but would have preferred not to have spent the money.
