I am completely satisfied with my purchase of travel insurance through Insure My Trip. I have purchased travel insurance with Insure my Trip on several occasions and have not had to file a claim in the past. During my most recent trip I had an accident and had to visit the ER. My travel insurance provided reimbursement not covered by my primary health insurance. I will continue to purchase travel insurance for future trips through Insure My Trip.

Not sure I can give a proper review as I had no need to utiize the coverage. I had a higher level of comfort knowing it was there should I needed it.

With the ZIKA virus concerns in Mexico, and me going to visit my pregnant daughter there, I was unhappy that the coverage did not allow me to cancel my trip so that she could come home to the States immediately.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The only benefit that can be used to cancel a trip due to the fear of contracting Zika virus is Cancel for Any Reason.

    Cancel for Any Reason coverage typically requires the following requirements (varies by plan):

    1) Purchase within 10-30 days of your initial trip deposit
    2) Insure 100% of your pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost
    3) Cancel the trip 2 or more days prior to departure

    While Cancel for Any Reason does give you the flexibility to cancel your trip due to an increased fear of Zika, it does not protect 100% of your trip cost. Depending upon the plan, Cancel for Any Reason benefit will reimburse 50%, 70%, or 75% of your insured trip cost.

    Please call us at 800-487-4772 if you have any questions about insuring against Zika related events, or the Cancel For Any Reason benefit.

Fortunately we did not need to use the plan but it was a comfort to know we had coverage if it became necessary
