It was unclear as to if the Insurance plan would cover a cancellation say up to 72 hours prior to departure with a full refund due back. Thank you, Jim Kraynik

    Thank you for your feedback. According to the certificate, it shows that your Travelex Travel Basic plan would provide Trip Cancellation coverage due to a covered peril and that the insurance provider would need to be notified within 72 hours of a covered loss in order to file a claim.

    Please contact 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to assist you if you have additional questions.

Didn't need the plan on our travels so don't know how well it would have worked. Price seemed reasonable for coverage promised. Would use again.

The Claim was handled fairly and prompt. How ever their claim form was unnecessarily redundant.

I purchased this policy, with the inclement weather of the NE area being a concern, when it would be time to fly out for our trip. Turns out I was blindsided when my spouse became ill and had to be hospitalized right before our trip. We had to cancel our trip. I made a claim, filled out the claim forms and submitted the required paperwork. After I sent the claim package in, I was sent a check for our total losses in less than three weeks. We will use this travel insurance company again, with the hopes of not having to use it, but the security of having it if we need it.

My husband and I have been traveling since 2004 and wouldn't leave on a cruise without cruise insurance. I have used insure my trip for many years and feel it has many plans to choose from and all reasonable.

The day before I was to fly out to Fort Lauderdale to board a cruise ship, we had a big snow storm. I called to find out what I had to do if my flight was grounded and could not make it to my cruise ship on time. The service representative was very helpful and kind. It gave me a great deal of peace of mind to know they were there and ready to help. As it turns out, I did get out on time and had a wonderful cruise.

Review is based on the purchase as we did not need to use it. I called to make the purchase and the representative was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was able to answer all my questions with various travel scenarios. They are not commission based, so there is no upselling. Would use Travelex again!
