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.

We didn't need the coverage, but were glad to know that it was there. We've had trips that we did need the insurance, and were glad to have it, so we always get it when we book a trip.

We chose this plan because we have elderly parents and were concerned that we may be called back home should they become ill. Fortunately we did not need to make a claim, but we enjoyed our trip more knowing that if something came up we were covered, and would have help making arrangements to come home.

We cancelled our trip due to a back injury that required surgery and rehabilitation. The claims process was completely transparent and the customer service was excellent. We were quite satisfied with the entire process and would recommend Travelex for your trip.

Good feeling to have a certain amount of insurance coverage. One question I have is that I don't know if we were covered in case of a strike I would be willing to pay a bit more for strike coverage.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this plan.

    The Travelex Travel Basic policy would be able to provide Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverage due to "Common Carrier delays resulting from inclement weather, or mechanical breakdown or organized labor strikes that affect public transportation;"

    Additionally, the Travel Delay benefit would cover "any Common Carrier delay" if you had a delay of 5 hours or more.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We are available 7 days a week at 1-800-487-4722.

We almost thought we might have to file a claim because our luggage was lost upon arrival in Paris; however, it was located and delivered to hotel next day.
Close call but always glad for insurance.
