Didn’t have to use this plan whatsoever, so the fact that it was a very affordable price for our peace of mind was absolutely worth it. We will be purchasing from this company for every trip here on out! In the event something did happen, this plan seems to provide excellent coverage. Thank you! Purchasing again for a December trip already.

Just knowing that we have peace of mind if something goes wrong. As I have traveled a couple of times with things that have happened and I did not have insurance. Got caught once in a hurricane. Wilma was a bad time. So I don’t travel without insurance anymore. Thanks for giving me peace of mind.

Travel delay costs were reimbursed, but it took over 2 months for this small claim to be processed.

Thankfully, we did not need to file a claim; however, we liked the peace of mind in knowing that we were covered should we have needed it.

I really can't give a good review since (thankfully) I didn't need to use it. But I will say that it gave me peace of mind for a reasonable cost. Using a company with a name I was familiar with also gave me the confidence that, had I needed to use it, I assume it would have paid as expected.

Difficult to review a plan you purchased but (fortunately) didn’t need. The best way to judge an insurance plan and value it’s worth is when you need to file a claim.

Didn't need to use it, which is the best. Wonder about if I did have to use it.

Insurance was easy to purchase - agent helped me through the process, and thankfully I didn't need to use the services, but had peace of mind in case something catastrophic happened, we'd be covered. We'll be using then again next year for our trip.
