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.

Seemed like good coverage for the premium.

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.

I felt the plan was an excellent value except for one thing. I booked what I thought was a 14 day plan, but the dates of travel were actually 15 days of coverage. I was charged another $50 for an extra day coverage, and was told that plan charged for extra week of coverage because there was no rate for extra day. I would have paid same for 21 days.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We understand why you would be disappointed by having to pay additional premium, but it is of critical importance to list the correct departure and return dates on the policy. Claims can be denied if you do not cover from the day you leave your home until the day you return to your home. Unfortunately, in doing the proper thing, you had to pay additional premium.

We filed a trip cancellation claim due to illness and received a check for the full amount within 2 weeks. Great service.
