Thank goodness this trip went smoothly and I did not need to use this policy I purchased for this trip! Thank you.

I ended up rescheduling my trip prior to departure because a connecting flight was cancelled. The airline waived change charges and I was responsible for the minimal difference in fare for the new date. With the help of InsureMyTrip, I was able to change the dates of coverage for the new itinerary rather than having to file a claim and purchase a new policy.

Always get insurance. Rarely ever use it, but good to know you're covered just in case. It's worth the peace of mind!

Was interested in trip cancellation/interruption coverage due to elderly relative. Everything else was not as important.

We purchased this insurance "just in case." Happily, we did not need it.

A great price for some basic insurance needed for a winter trip, in case of delays or plane cancellations due to weather.

Our travel often involves using credit card miles program reward travel for airfare, car rental, etc. This insurance does not cover losses of those expenses. These trip insurance companies need to figure out a way to do so, as this is no doubt a common scenario and an untapped business opportunity.

Fortunately, we did not have to use this insurance. However, we had many things that came up (illness, weather, delayed flights) that were not as stressful knowing we had coverage if we needed it. I would buy this insurance again.
