Didn't need to use it so hard to say how well it worked. But that's a good thing.

Used this for a December cruise. Love the options were given and the ability to add other options as needed. Purchasing is easy and the chat feature is the best.

Fortunately, we didn’t need to file a claim but it was a comfort to know that we had insurance in case we had a problem. It is well worth the cost of the policy to have peace of mind.
I have several friends who have lost significant amounts of money because they had to cancel trips due to Covid or other medical issues and they didn’t have insurance. Buying a policy through InsureMyTrip.com is very easy. You enter the parameters of your trip and are presented with many choices. In the past, I have contacted customer service on the phone and they have assisted me in choosing a plan. I have recommended this website to many people as a seamless way to purchase trip insurance.

Thankful that we didn’t have to use it but really grateful for the coverage. We will use it again if we travel internationally.

UPDATE: we were notified (after the start date of the original trip), that the coverage had been transferred to our new date. Still haven’t travelled.

Original Review: Due to Covid our trip was rescheduled we notified insurance a month before departure we called them three times to ensure they were tracking the change, I was told it was in underwriting, have never received any notice that the insurance dates have been changed, just got this request to review our trip that didn’t happen. Can’t even imagine what it would be like if you had to file a claim.
Michael E. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

This is really hard to do when you don’t have a claim. If I did have a claim, I would be able to evaluate the policy a little bit better based on what I needed covered.

It met our need for coverage of unexpected medical issues at a very reasonable cost.
