Did not have any bad situations, but I felt comfortable by having the insurance. We have seen some people that did not purchase a plan but had some troubles where they would use coverage, like cancelled hotel reservation before the cruise, broken shoes, wet floor accidents on the ship, etc...

Couldn't figure out how to call the help number while traveling from my cell phone which had foreign data but not foreign phone calls.

    Dial 1, the country code for the US.
    Dial the phone number, including area code.

Just the protection I wanted for my family's vacation....yet at an affordable price. I've used Insure My Trip many, many times over the years and for lots of trips. I've had to make some claims in the past due to unfortunate circumstances and there was never an issue. Ever. Wouldn't want to travel, especially out of the U.S., without travel insurance for peace of mind. Thanks!

I can't reiterate enough the peace of mind you get when traveling with insurance. The basic plan is enough coverage for my trip.

I did not need to use this plan but having the peace of mind was worth the price. A companion traveling with me tripped in port and had to receive a stitch from the medical services on board the ship, total for one stitch and stich removal was about 800 dollars. He was glad he had trip insurance!

We purchased this plan for peace of mind. Fortunately, we did not have to use it. The premium was very reasonable compared to the potential loss if we had to cancel our cruise.

We had to cancel our trip due to my husbands illness. It took them about 4 weeks after we got the paperwork to them for us to get money back. Very happy with everyone I talked to with questions..
