Did not file a claim so difficult to know if the plan covered everything I expected; bought the plan just in case as i truly believe no one should travel without some sort of insurance plan.

Fortunately, I did not have to use the insurance, but I like to know it will be available if needed. One never knows.

We insure our trips and once again are glad that we didn't have to use it. But it gives us peace of mind to have it while we travel.

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.

Had to file a claim due to my flight being cancelled. Got back 82% of my total claim with the remaining 18% not being reimbursed as that was a cost that would have been incurred anyways (and I figured as much). Took 2 weeks from filing the claim to getting reimbursed. Also provided was an explanation of what part of my claim was getting reimbursed (with sometimes a why). Overall, this was an easy and good experience (especially for my first claim). Would recommend.

These real value of these plans depends on whether or not it is necessary to use them. They do provide peace of mind, but since we didn't need to file a claim, we can't comment on the quality of the plan.
