It's hard to be objective since I did not have to use the plan, however, the customer service people were polite and helpful when purchasing the plan.

You never know how good your insurance is until you have a claim. Since I did not have a claim, I cannot comment on the quality of this insurance.

I purchased the Super Saver plan never thinking i would use it. Bad weather caused a two day travel delay and it cost me additional expenses. I filed a claim and got money within weeks. I am complete satisfied! I worked with Nicole(Tru Travel Claims) and she was awesome.

    I agree! I also purchased the same plan and had to file a claim for the Princess Cruise Norovirus incident when our cruise was shortened by two days. This was considered a trip interruption and my claim was processed the same day I submitted it by e-mail. I was told I will be receiving a check in 10-12 days! No hassles at all. I will definitely be using Tru Travel again and again! Mary in Missouri
