    Thank you very much for submitting your 5 star review. You are certainly correct in saying that selecting one policy from among so many quotes is confusing which is why we offer our online chat for assistance. Nevertheless, that online service is not always effective especially since the answer to any question may vary by plan or state.

    We certainly hope to hear from you in the future, but please remember that you may also call Customer Care at (800) 487-4722 weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight ET and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM for assistance.

Clearly, it's difficult to give a review of something that one did not utilize, however, it was comforting have the peace of mind that the coverage would have been there in the event of need.

As far as I know this is a good policy, I always buy trip insurance but have never used it. I am assuming it is a good policy but would like to find out from previous buyers that have had to us it.

This plan gave us peace of mind at a reasonable cost. With an extended family of kids and grandkids, and the Flu near epidemic proportions, we could rest assured that we could cancel the trip without penalty costs, if any of us had been sick.

We had to change our travel plans due to the hurricane. We had not made any claims against the insurance company. They were very helpful and switched our insurance to the new destination without having to buy a new policy.

Tankfully we didn’t need to use the insurance. However the coastguard had to pick someone who became ill up with a helicopter while we were at sea. I hope they are okay and had some insurance.
