I had a foot injury. My doctor told me I would be ok to travel but I was a little apprehensive. I called to discuss my options and the agent reassured me that the company would stand behind me. I wasn't sure I would be able to go and the agent said I had time, to give my injury some time and see how I'd feel - there was no pressure just true compassion. I did go, and had a wonderful time...but it was nice to know someone had my back.

Although I always purchase travel insurance, fortunately we never have had to use it. We choose wisely during the purchase stage so I can only comment on insuremytrip. It is an excellent user friendly website with good policies and good prices.

This was my first time purchasing this type of insurance for my child. I had many questions and the travel representatative was so helpful answering all of them. I would highly encourage you to call if you have any questions and you will have peace of mind when traveling or when your loved one is traveling.

Thank you Insure My Trip website for making selecting trip insurance easier. We always purchase trip insurance since I have had to use it a couple of times. I did make contact with Insure My Trip with questions after my daughter made a trip to the ER, but we were fortunate to be able to make our vacation plans. Customer support was excellent and the person was able to answer my questions. I feel that Nationwide Essential was the best plan for our family after being able to compare many different plans. Just so happy that I did not need to use it! Thank you!

Although we also insure with insuremytrip when we travel abroad, we have never had a claim. In that regard, we have no basis to evaluate the quality and efficiency of the service.
That said, the process of obtaining cover is always quick and efficient thanks to courteous, knowledgeable staff.
Prices seem reasonable for the cover we get.

In searching for travel insurance before my trip I found insure my trip. I determined that it provided exactly what I wanted and needed for a reasonable price. Although, I had checked with my very good health insurance company and determined I was also covered by them I wanted the extra protection coverage. It made a difference when I was abroad knowing I was well covered with health insurance. I am fortunate that I didn't have to file a claim but the peace of mind was nice.

I was glad I did not need it but would not have traveled without. Never know what could happen and knowing if something did I was covered! Will use you again if needed.
