I appreciated the peace of mind I had while traveling. I knew if for some reason I became ill, or had any normal trip interruption my hard earned money will not have been wasted. It was a small amount to pay to protect myslef.

Luckily didn’t need to use this, however there was a point in the trip where we had a situation that could have potentially caused cancellations. I was glad to have this in my “back pocket “. Will use again in future.

The only frustration was when we thought we had to submit a claim for lost luggage and was directed to another website. When attempting to input the dollar amount of each item lost, you were unable to just type in the amount. Instead, I had to sit at the computer and repeatedly tap and hold down the key because the dollar amount would only register ONE PENNY at a time. This is ridiculous, time consuming and unnecessary in this day and age of technology. Other than that it was okay.
Josephine C. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
