Although we were fortunate not to have to use our TruTravel insurance on this trip, we found the ability to compare plans and prices very helpful on the InsureMyTrip web site. This is the third time we have used TruTravel and InsureMyTrip for our travel needs.

Due to Hurricane Sandy our trip was delayed a week. Luckily, we were able to reschedule and had a wonderful life experience.

I am glad that I did not have to file any claims. I paid for peace of mind and the insurance that my flight cost would be covered if I was too ill to travel. Luckily I am healthy for 75 yrs old.

I find TruTravel Super Saver plan to be a very cost effective plan. I didn't need to use it, but it was great to know that the coverage was there without having to spend a lot of money.

I find InsureMyTrip's way of presenting their material easy to follow and use as a cost comparison among the many companies to choose from.

Fortunately we did not encounter any problems and did not have to avail ourselves of the insurance. InsuremyTrip's employees who answer the phone are polite and quite knowledgeable.

We traveled to Europe and had peace of mind knowing that InsureMyTrip would be there if we needed them.

I was upset that I had the preexisting condition exclusion. Worried that this clause would make it difficult to get coverage if I needed it. Didnt know that only by purchasing coverage simultaniously with plane tickets would I not get this exclusion. I dont always have all of my plans set at the same time. Otherwise, the plan was adequate.

There were two wonderful results regarding the use of your insurance product. The first is the knowledge that our travel and investment and health were protected and the second is that we did not need to use it. This may sound odd but because we knew we had the coverage we were able to relax and enjoy our travels.
Thank you.

I was glad to not have to use any of the features of the plan on this trip. It was, however, nice to have the assurance that should I need some help, it was only a phone call away.
