Did not need to use the coverage, but it was comforting to know that it was there if we needed it.

It is hard to tell how valuable this plan was because fortunately, I did not have to use it.
Still, it provided the best bang for the buck.

Plan provided the cover I wanted at a reasonable price. I didn’t have to make a claim so cannot comment on that aspect of the policy but very happy with both price and cover. Will definitely seriously consider using this company next time.

We were part of the Southwest airline debacle and ended up having to rent a car and drive 16 hours to make our cruise. This insurance was essentially useless for that purpose. We called ahead and got zero help. Nothing is guaranteed until you file a claim. Nothing is covered until you leave your house the day of your travel. It was a total waste of money. Not sure what is actually covered.

The plan gave us total piece of mind and we were able to pick a plan that handled our concerns. We never had to use the plan, but we were happy we made the purchase and considering what was going on around us with different airlines, we felt protected if we had any issues. I will definitely use insuremytrip again for future travel.

Always wise to have insurance and not need to use it, then it is to need insurance and not hjave it.
