Great plan at a great cost. It was cheaper and provided better coverage than the cruise ships recommendation.

Since we had a smooth sailing experience on our 14 night Cuba cruise I am unable to rate the claim process. Suffice to say I am satisfied that the trip was fully covered and we had no need to file a claim. Others on our sailing we not as fortunate as extremely bad weather delayed many from reaching the port of Boston for embarkation. They were forced to fly to our first port stop of Key West which was a full 4 days later. Some had no insurance and were dismayed at having not only missed 3 lazy sea days but also to pay for air transportation, hotel and meals to meet the ship. Lesson learned. Travel insurance is a must.

Didn't have to use it but the cost was a great value for the coverage offered.

Did not need to use the insurance though we did have a flight disruption that led to a missed connection. The airline paid for overnight stay and we were placed on airline flight the next day. Had no real financial loss except could not use accommodation one night in destination city, Melbourne- however our daughter had to use it. Glad that had the coverage just in case and feel fortunate that did not have to use it.

The plan was easy to purchase online. Due to an accidental overbooking by our tour company, our travel dates needed to be changed. It completely slipped my mind to change our insurance until we were a couple of weeks away from our departure. They were awesome to work with and with proper documentation from the tour company changed our covered travel dates no problem. They were great at communicating with me and I really appreciate how on top of everything they were. We did not end up needing to file any claims, but it's nice to know we were covered.

Thankfully we didn’t need to file a claim. But the peace of mind for tgr easonable price of this plan was well worth it. I will be purchasing future coverage from Insure My Trip. They were so easy to work with and professional.

Although I did not have a need to use the trip insurance, the peace of mind knowing that I would be covered was well worth the very reasonable cost!
