This is the first time we have ever bought trip insurance,and the only reason why I did is because we were traveling to San Francisco from Wisconsin to get on a cruise ship. The way the airlines have been having problems I didn’t want to get stranded somewhere and miss the ship and lose out on all that money.So basically it was for piece of mind.We never had to make a claim on it so do not know how that would have worked out it with did.

My destination in Cayman Islands required coverage for Covid. Initially, I wasn’t sure if that coverage was included so I read through all the fine print to check. It would be helpful to see coverage for Covid included in the summary policy description.

Didn’t have to the invoke any parts of the plan I bought. Felt that it was best value for money spent. That might be different if I had to make a claim, but I didn’t.

I had one change needed to my plan a couple of weeks before we left and the agent with whom I spoke was helpful. The change was easy and I was very pleased with the customer service. Luckily we did not need the coverage to file a claim, but in the time of COVID I was glad I had the insurance. After researching possible companies, this was the one I chose and I'm glad.

It's hard to judge an insurance policy and the company that issued it unless you make a claim, but this policy provided me coverage I wanted for my trip. It gave me comfort that if weather or an emergency cancelled or delayed my trip, I would be reimbursed for my expenses. It also provided coverage for lost luggage and medical treatment and transport.
