I have never had a claim on travel insurance so I cannot say how good it is. How a company pays a claim is the way I would judge the insurance I buy. So up to now I can only say that you do a good job of collecting the premium but how you pay a claim I do not know......

We used Travelex for our month long cruise in the South Pacific. Our air arrangements were made by Silversea to Palau. Because of a United delay in San Francisco, we missed the ship and it took us five full days of flying all over the Pacific to join the ship in Vanimo. Travelex reimbursed us completely for the first five days of the cruise. An Excellent and Reliable company.

We need a cost effective plan that would help out with major expenses, i.e., transportation back to the states. This plan has worked well for us. Provides a feeling of confidence at significantly lower cost than plans provided by the Cruise company or travel agent. Though we have had no claims so cannot provide a review on payments.

Insurance Policy is only good when you have a claim & get payment . However, is a good peace of mind when you travel.

Thank goodness, we didn't need to put in a claim, but knowing we had coverage brought peace of mind.

We lost our home in the California wildfires and the many loops they put us through to try and create paperwork we did not still have as it was burnt in the fire was so very distressing to us. There was little to none empathy from the company. They made us feel that we were not being truthful with them. Will never use Travelex again and will be passing the poor service that we received to all our friends and family.
