Fortunately, did not need to use the plan but it was great to know it was there, for a reasonable price, if I did.

I, thankfully, didn't need to file a claim, but the coverages were in place for nearly all eventualities. The price was fair, as well. Insurance is a pure "peace of mind" product, until things wrong! during the time leading up to, during and after my trip, I had peace of mind! I'd recommend your product/services to anyone.

Thanks!
Mike

    Thankfully you were able to enjoy your travel and had no need to file a claim.

    Please keep in mind that Comprehensive Insurance plan premiums are generally based on the 3 main factors; (1) the ages of the travelers, (2) the length of your trip and (3) the total cost of your prepaid non-refundable trip cost.

      Also keep in mind that your health care coverage you have may pay for any medical travel expenses. Check with them before you purchase any trip insurance. Depending on the airline they may provide some relief to air travel getting home.

Luckily, we didn't have to use it, so I have no idea what kind of hassle it would be to file a claim.

I can not give a positive or negative review, because I did not have to use insurance. But, it was good to know I had insurance for unforeseen emergency. Rating may have been different if I used insurance

It’s good that there was no need to file a claim, which makes it difficult to rate the policy. We budgeted the policy into our planned spend, so yes affordable, but I suppose it can always cost less. I’m glad we had the coverage, and also glad it was not necessary to file a claim.

My favorable rating is based on the peace of mind the plan gave me. As I did not file a claim, I can't rate the plan on its response to a claim.
