I didn't need to file a claim, but with the unpredictable winter weather and the partial government shutdown, I felt it prudent to have coverage. A lot could have gone wrong, but didn't. It's like most other insurance - you hope to never use it.

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

Plan was fine but yet again, unused. Frankly, I think travel insurance is like throwing money away.

Since we didn’t have to use it, I cannot answer some of the questions. It was great knowing we had coverage if needed. The cost was well worth it. Your customer service representative was very helpful when I called about getting coverage.
