Travelex Travel Basic
We were covered for a cruise with a 2 hour flight from our hometown to/from the cruiseport. We were to fly in the morning of the cruise. The day before we were to leave, our flight was cancelled for the next morning due to predicted uber cold weather. The airline put us on a flight that evening, so we were forced to stay in a hotel near the cruiseport. The insurance covered the cost of the hotel. The thing I'd like to point out is that I'd purchased the insurance for the original date. The insurance company was able to think outside the box and cover our hotel, even though the date wasn't within the original time frame of the trip. Kudos to them! The claim took about a week to process once the company had my documentation. Refund is by check.

The best thing about getting insurance is when you don't need it - but know that it was available.

This was the most we ever paid for insurance; however, the trip to Israel was not inexpensive. We always purchase travel insurance through this site and will again for our next trip

This is the first time I have had to use my insurance, so I was a little worried if I had the right documents and if the claim would be accepted. My flight was cancelled and rescheduled. I submitted a hotel receipt for the night and it was approved in less than 2 weeks. I am very pleased with the process. Travelex/Berkshire Hathaway had a form to fill out, along with my receipts, and all could be submitted by email. I contacted customer service to begin the claim and spoke with a knowledgeable rep.
