It's hard to do a review if you did not have to file a claim. The TRUE reviews would be from those people who had claims. I purchased it in case we did need to use it, but luckily we did not. The price seemed a little high, but not as high as most others, so I'd probably use this company again on the next trip.

We buy insurance for every overseas vacation and this is the first time we had to submit a claim. Very pleased with how the claim was processed.

We didn't make a claim, so I can't really say how well the insurance worked. But the coverage was good for the cost.

My wife has some chronic medical issues so we need protection when we plan a trip. I shopped around and found this company. This was a great value and it offered multiple choices of plans. We almost needed it while traveling but fortunately everything worked out, but it was nice knowing that the policy was there. I will buy again on our next trip.
