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.

Great value and customer service. Unfortunately, I did have to file a claim. It was handled quickly and efficiently with a positive result. I would definitely recommend and will purchase again.

I did not have to use the plan thankfully but the coverage it provided gave me a good peace of mind especially for the price.
