Didn’t have to the invoke any parts of the plan I bought. Felt that it was best value for money spent. That might be different if I had to make a claim, but I didn’t.

I had one change needed to my plan a couple of weeks before we left and the agent with whom I spoke was helpful. The change was easy and I was very pleased with the customer service. Luckily we did not need the coverage to file a claim, but in the time of COVID I was glad I had the insurance. After researching possible companies, this was the one I chose and I'm glad.

It's hard to judge an insurance policy and the company that issued it unless you make a claim, but this policy provided me coverage I wanted for my trip. It gave me comfort that if weather or an emergency cancelled or delayed my trip, I would be reimbursed for my expenses. It also provided coverage for lost luggage and medical treatment and transport.

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.
