I never needed to file a claim. However, I did have to change my travel dates. This insurance was very accommodating.

We did not have any issues so I have no experience with the claims process. However, the policy provided all the coverage we needed at a competitive price. Communication was quick and efficient.

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.
