Well, in good news, the plan was unnecessary and the vacation went off without a hitch. It was good to have the peace of mind just in case! It's a good, affordable plan, and I certainly don't regret having purchased it.

I did not have to use it, so I can not rate it. However I always got a comp plan from IMT.com when I travel.

Since I did not file a claim it is difficult to properly evaluate the plan. However, I believe that the plan covered most of the risks that I have when traveling.

It was difficult for me find an easy cheat sheet on my phone of what would we covered or to have a handy proof of coverage page for traveling. I ended up just printing some clunky email to take with but it wasn't smooth or convenient.
