The comparison feature allowed me to easily see which policy would fit my needs. The price was extremely reasonable. Fortunate, I didn’t need to use it but feel confident that if the event had arisen, my needs would have been met

That's why you buy insurance, right? You hope you never need it.

We fortunately did not have to use this insurance plan. It was required by our travel agent. So we either threw away $250 or it was $250 well spent.

Unfortunately, my wife experienced a potentially urgent medical issue during our trip, causing us to leave our tour group activities for a full day while seeking medical treatment. Berkshire Hathaway (the underwriter for the plan) processed our claim for out-of-pocket expenses (taxis', busfare, and additional meal costs) plus the pro-rata value of a full day of the tour (for both of us) in a "no questions asked" and very prompt manner. (Because we were in the UK's National Health System, no medical expenses were incurred for doctors visits or medications). I would definitely purchase the policy again.
