This was the lowest cost plan available for our needs, and came with great reviews. I was not looking for a 'cancel for any reason' plan, since we were quite locked in and only a medical emergency would have been a reason on our end to cancel. It was only for trip interruption/cancel or medical needs as to why I wanted the travel insurance policy.

Obtaining a quote for the plan was easy via InsureMyTrip and purchasing the policy was similarly seamless.

While we did not have to file a claim, I am certain doing so would have been a positive experience.

It was interesting as to the wide variation of policy costs, and some higher cost plans were from companies with very poor ratings. Do research and dont just assume that higher cost plans mean better plans or companies, because that is likely not the case.

This was my first experience with InsureMyTrip and it was a very positive one. I will be a repeat customer in the future when needing travel insurance.

We were quite comfortable working with this company. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is that, thankfully, we didn't need to file a claim. So a true test of how good it is, or not, would be in how they handled any adverse situation. But we would certainly come back to them for future travel should the opportunity arise. Thank you!
