The plan was easy to compare to other plans, both in price and coverage. The purchase process was also very friendly.

Since I did not need to use the insurance, I really can not rate your efficiency but I felt good that I had insurance and am glad that I did not have to use it!

Limited weekend customer service telephone coverage. Wanted to call at 6PM Pacific due to flight delay from Kona to LAX. Not open. The need to know was immediate.

    It sounds like you were trying to reach InsureMyTrip's customer service which is open on weekends from 9AM - 9PM EST. When you are traveling, please remember it is your insurance company's 24-hour emergency assistance number that you should be calling for any travel-related issues. The assistance companies have 2 telephone numbers: one toll free to call when inside the U.S. and Canada; one to call collect when outside the U.S. They are available around the clock to provide you with assistance.

The most reasonably priced plan for comprehensive coverage. Just glad I didn't have to use it but the price was worth the peace of mind. Will buy again for future trips.

In comparing insurance companies, I found the best rate and coverage for travel insurance through Nationwide. Thankfully, I didn't need to use it, but I would definitely consider buying insurance for a future trip with them. The phone representative was very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in helping me pick the right coverage to fit my needs.
Judy T. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

I always insure my trips that involve air/hotel/etc. outside the continental US. I have used InsureMyTrip for every one and have always been pleased with the product and the service. Fortunately, I have only had one minor claim and it was handled very professionally.

First time traveling with an infant. I wanted a bit more piece of mind. TruTravel did that. Luckily I didn't have to file any claims, so I can't comment on that, but I was pleased with the benefits, price, and piece of mind that the plan offered. I was also pleased that surfing is not an exclusion as it is for some plans.
