Easy, quick and customer service was great, even though I didn't need to file a claim. We will use for our next Europe Trip.

I did not need to use it, yet it is indispensable to have when traveling abroad. I will do it every time I travel.

After shopping around I found this to be the best value. I did have an issue with my trip and spoke to a representative who was very strait forward with what is covered and what is not. They were very helpful. I ended up having a great vacation and it was comforting to know I was covered if a medical situation arose while I was out hiking, biking, zip lining and river rafting. Thankfully I did not have to make a claim to the insurance.

Fortunately my trip went smoothly and there was no need to file a claim. My review was based solely on the coverage offered for the premium paid. The premium was very reasonable compared to what was being offered by other companies.

Information provided by the agent and carrier was reasonably clear and understandable. The follow up prior to departure was good and timely, helping to gather information that needs to be carried while on the trip. We did not have to test this policy so I can't rate that aspect of its quality. As with any insurance, its worthless if you don't understand it, know how or when it takes affect, or how to call on the services its provides while on the trip. I forwarded electric copies of the policy to myself, spouse, and family in the event I lacked the ability or capability to put various emergency facilities in affect.
