I did like that I was contacted before the trip and reminded to bring proof of coverage with me in case needed.

It was wonderful to know that we were covered on any and all unexpected occurrences during our trip. Once I purchased the insurance I put any concern or worry out of my mind. It was well worth the cost to know that if the unforeseen should happen, we would have the perfect way to deal with it.

It was good to know that our trip was insured, even though we didn't need it. Great coverage that no one else can match.

The plan I purchased had the coverage I needed at a great price. Thankfully I didn't need to file a claim, and my travels were worry free knowing that I was covered.

I am so thankful that I learned about your company shortly before my cruise through my local T.V. news broadcast, Upon calling, I was so professionally taken care of. Your most reasonable price for the coverage was so well worth the peace of mind that I felt during my trip. Thank you.

My daughter broke her ankle two weeks before our scheduled departure for Cancun. The break required surgery a week later, then one week before departure. The customer service representative walked me through the claim procedure. I was reimbursed the full amount for which I was insured within three weeks of my claim.

The assurance you get from knowing that your trip is covered if anything goes wrong - sickness, accidents, etc. - is well worth the cost of the trip insurance. One lady broke her arm while boarding the ship and she missed the cruise. We saw another man who had fallen and was taken off on a stretcher. Trip insurance is a good thing to have.
