    Thank you for your 5 star review. Since you have not purchased the policy for the May trip, we have emailed you a quote.

It would have improved my peace of mind if I had purchased the pre-existing condition coverage. My husband became ill after three days of a twenty-three day trip and it was related to his COPD, so he essentially had no medical coverage for that illness. Next time I'll be wiser.

Since, thankfully, I had no need to file a claim, I can't attest to anything about the plan except that I had it. But, as usual insuremytrip.com was helpful in finding the right plans for our needs at a reasonable price.

Although we didn't have to use your plan, it was more than worth the peace of mind in the event of a family, medical or weather issue. Yes, we would consider using your plan again in the future.

My husband and I both had to visit the doctor on board ship because of illness. After we got home I filed a claim with the insurer and in less than two weeks we received a check for the total amount of our services. Thank you so much for the quick turnaround and for the promptness in taking care of our claim. Highly pleased!!

Two weeks before my scheduled departure, I fell and broke my elbow, so the trip had to be cancelled. I called Travelex and they emailed me the forms for my doctor to fill out. He did so, I returned them to Travelex, and within a month I received a check in full for my claim amount. It was a pretty open-and-shut case, and it went without a hitch. I am satisfied and grateful for the prompt and smooth handling of my claim.

Plan differences are somewhat confusing. The most important feature when we travel is repatriation. Airfare is usually recoverable or changeable even when working planning a trip with a tour. Insurance coverage could be for land costs only minimizing the cost of insurance for an expensive trip.

We didn't need to use it, but it gave us peace of mind to have it, as we have elderly parents at home and you never know what might happen. Fortunately all was well while we were in Cancun.
