I felt the price was fair and I was happy to have the knowledge that my husband and I were
insured if a problem
arose. I was happy with the amount of coverage I chose
related to the price
I paid.

Fortunately, I did not have to file a claim. I did feel relief that I did have medical and evacuation coverage if I needed it. The cost for the plan was very reasonable.

My wife and I were delayed by a day at airport due to a weather delay which this plan does not include under trip interruption. Extra cost to us was about $150 for hotel and food, in addition to the loss of a full day of vacation.
It would have been nice to have option in plan to include this under trip interruption.

Fortunately we did not have to use the plan, but it provided peace of mind during our trip. Will likely use the same company for future international travel.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy.

    The Global Underwriters Diplomat International plan covers medical expenses up to a maximum of 20,000 USD due to a sudden and unforeseen recurrence of a Pre-existing Condition. This does not include coverage for known, scheduled, required or expected medical care, drugs, or treatments existent or necessary prior to the effective date of coverage. Otherwise, the plan excludes coverage for pre-existing medical conditions in a 12 month period prior to the effective date of coverage. This exclusion does not apply to Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation.

    The best way to waive the pre-existing conditions exclusion is to purchase a Comprehensive travel insurance plan immediately after you put money down towards your trip. Most policies will offer a waiver of pre-existing conditions if you satisfy the following requirements: purchase the policy within 10 to 21 days after making the initial trip payment; insure 100% of the prepaid non-refundable expenses prior to your departure date; and be medically fit to travel the day you purchase the policy.

    Please call us at 800-487-4722 if you would like to learn more about obtaining coverage for pre-existing conditions.
