I have bought this coverage for many trips but had never before filed a claim. This time I suffered a knee injury before the trip and was unable to go. I submitted all the required information and the plan reimbursed the airline change fee for the trip.

Fortunately, we didn’t need to use it. We are in our early seventies and this plan was an immense source of comfort. Being on Original Medicare, with excellent secondary coverage, we took very low medical expense coverage of only $15,000. That kept the cost low. Trip was to Hawaii.

Evacuation coverage was my reason for taking it.

I learned how important this coverage is on a QE2 cruise from New York to Southampton England. A man suffered a medical emergency well out in the Atlantic, with Nova Scotia the nearest land. A medical helicopter followed by a large refueling plane came to the ship. Due to heavy waves, both the man and his wife were lifted into the helicopter in a basket. Wonder what that cost?

Good price for good coverage from a known insurer. Didn't need to use it, so I don't have any feedback about the claims process.

It was our first time buying travel insurance. We did it because the tickets were expensive. We had a family emergency and my mother was hospitalized for almost three weeks. We had to cancel the trip. Travelex reimbursed us 100% of our tickets once we completed the forms and provided the requested documents. It was an easy procedure. Once we submitted the documents, their response was fast. It gives you peace of mind knowing that you can get your money back if something like this happens.

The coverage gave me peace of mind, which is important to travelers. I am very glad I did not have to use it! I also used Travelex to obtain euros so, all in all, I am happy with the company and would recommend it to other travelers.

I purchased an excellent plan, which, thankfully, I didn’t need to use while overseas. On-line process was smooth & simple. I’ll be back before my next trip!
