Due to the hurricane, I sent in a claim for my airfare. I did not receive a response. I have since been credited back from the airlines. It would have been nice to have been contacted in a more timely manner about my claims. Turns out the only money I lost on my trip was the money I paid for the insurance I did not end up needing. Poor communication from company.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry that you were dissatisfied with your claim experience. We are pleased that you ultimately received reimbursement of your loss from the airline. As you know, the recent Natural Disasters have caused a higher than normal call volume and process time. However, we do want you and your fellow customers to be aware that InsureMyTrip offers a Customer Advocate Program. Customer Advocates are representatives assigned to assist customers who experience issues after filing a claim. Requesting a Customer Advocate is as simple as calling 800-487-4722 or emailing customercare@insuremytrip.com, explaining the events which resulted in a claim, and the challenges you are facing.

Great peace of mind. Glad I had it and glad I didn't need to use it. Will always go to your site for my travel insurance. Thank you.

Very reasonable price for the substantial coverage provided. Appears to be one of the best travel insurance values around. Includes excellent (secondary) emergency medical coverage and medical evacuation. Unfortunately, I had a NON-emergency medical visit at a local U.S. Virgin Islands clinic which did not accept my regular medical insurance (the "primary" insurance under this policy) so I had to pay $321 out-of-pocket.

Thankfully I did not need to file an insurance claim, but just knowing that I had a policy eased my fears if for some unexpected reason I had to cancel or interrupt my trip. The rep was excellent and explained everything to me. I have already recommended her to a friend. Thank you.
