Travelex Travel Basic
I was very happy with Travelex travel basic plan. Once I submitted my documents, I received a check for the total amount allowed. My phone was lost on an international flight and I immediately called Travelex and my agent, Candace, worked on my case. My claim was approved and I was sent me a check within 3 weeks. Great service! I will use them again.

I was fortunate not to have reason to claim, but was confident it would all go well if it had been necessary

Best part was not needing the coverage, of course. But second best was the fact that the company that issued the policy reached out to us while we were on our New Zealand trip to make sure we were OK after the earthquake that struck the country half-way through our visit there.

Fortunately we did not have to utilize the policy. We did have the comfort of knowing that we had coverage for our trip.

My son Thomas and wife insured the same trip at about the same time but from a different starting location. while on the trip, we compared notes and found that his insurance was about half the cost of ours and the stated values were the same. Why would that be? We thought we were requesting the same coverage but obviously something different came out.

    There are a few factors that go into rating (premium) of a policy, age of the traveler is one of them. If you'd like to discuss further, please call us (see contact information below) and we would be happy to compare both policies and explain the differences.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS CRAP INSURANCE. This is the third plan we have purchased through this garbage scow of a company and the first claim we've filed. It's perfect for those who want a false sense of security that their trip is insured. This junk plan is not worth the paper it's printed on. We filed a legitimate claim that was denied. Fairly priced, but worthless if claims are not fairly paid out. Total waste of money, time and effort.
