I felt secure in the knowledge that I had a good policy backing my trip in case something did go wrong. Comparing plans through the Insure My Trip website was easy and gave me the information to make an informed decision. Will use it again for future travel.

We had a long delay in the Cancun airport and did not keep receipts for the unexpected meals. It was a learning experience for us on future trips.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that your trip was delayed, and that you wee unable to receive reimbursement. However, this review is extremely helpful to your fellow travelers.

    The travel insurance industry standard requires that the insured person provides documentation in order to be reimbursed for their out of pocket expenses. A covered Travel Delay will reimburse up to a per day or maximum limit for additional meals, local transportation, and lodging accommodations. Please remember to keep receipts to prove the reasonable additional expenses as result of the delay.

Quick and easy to purchase good coverage. One thing was missing though: a printout card with policy number and phone numbers to call in case of emergency.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. Unfortunately, not all travel insurance companies provide insurance cards. However, InsureMyTrip sends a Confirmation of Coverage email after purchase. Customers are advised to print out and carry this email during their trip because it lists the policy number and provider contact information.
