Outstanding. You get more than the cruise ship offers. I felt safe and great knowing I had insurance traveling so far. I didn't need to use it, but happy I had it, just in case! Great company! Great everything, price and what you get for your money. I highly recommend this company

The cost was reasonable for what we spent on the trip, but it is Insurance. If you need it, you're glad you have it, if you don't use it, it is a waste of money.

I regularly purchase travel insurance. Although I lucklily did not need to use the policy. I did come down with what was later dianosed with COVID. If I had to cacel the trip, the savings would have been significant

The only thing I did not like about my trip was the internet. I paid premium price and wished I hadn't. Never again.

The best thing about purchasing travel insurance is knowing that I am covered financially in case something happens. The peace of mind of knowing that you will receive help in the event of an incident is reassuring.

Fortunately I did not need to use my plan but I had peace of mind knowing that I was covered for the unexpected. This plan covered everything I needed at a reasonable cost.

I had to cancel our trip due to a serious medical condition. It took probably two months for the claim to be processed and paid out. It was a lengthy process but they did pay out the full amount, so I think it was fair.
