I felt good because I was protected. I am an older person so I had to pay a higher premium. I wish I did not have to do that. The policy does cover what I needed to have covered but I did not have to use it.

    Thank you for providing your feedback. There are 3 main factors that determine premium costs: the cost of the trip, the length of the trip, and the travelers ages. 

    In the future, if you are looking for guidance in selecting a travel insurance plan, please consider contacting our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to assist you.

I was able to travel with piece of mind, knowing that if a problem arose, I had insurance coverage.

Cannot speak to how well they handle claims as we had no need to file one . We chose this company as it allowed us to buy the coverage we needed without having to buy coverage for a lot of items we didn't need (such as coverage that might be needed outside of the US). There were still some items (we are retired so wouldn't need the loss of job coverage) but it would be hard to have a policy designed just for us with out increasing the overall cost due to added manpower needed for such policies.

I did not need to use the insurance so I really can’t comment on how the claim process works.

I did not have to use the insurance, but the cost was reasonable and provided the coverage I wanted.

Although expensive- travel insurance is recommended when the weather can be uncertain, or whenever any less obvious or unanticipated travel interruptions/delays may occur. It's easy to understand how the insurance industry can make substantial profits from these policies.

As I say in all these reviews, it's really not possible to do a review if you are not filing the claim. The test of insurance is how easily and completely they pay out what they say they will. Thankfully I had no need to file a claim so I have no idea whether or not it was a good purchase

Although I did not end up needing to file a claim, it was reassuring knowing coverage was there if needed.
