Travelex Travel Basic
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.

I bought this for coverage of a beach trip we took down to Charleston, SC as hurricane Florence was headed that direction. Fortunately the area wasn't damaged and we were able to take our trip with no issues. I did not have to use the policy but it was nice to know I was covered. I chose this policy based on other reviews as well as some of the terms in it didn't appear as strict as other policies I researched.

Even with a professional insurance broker this was the only plan that could be found to cover a cross country road trip to National Parks with many non-refundable reservations. I was looking for something that would reimburse me the money lost on these reservations should we not be able to complete our trip due to weather or road obstructions affecting my personal vehicle, not just a common carrier (bus,plane,train). It also covered vehicle accidents that caused loss of refunds as well as pre-existing medical conditions as long as travelers were clear to travel at the time of departure. I would look here for a policy before anywhere else when I had similar concerns.

Never considered purchasing travel insurance until a coworker had a sudden death in her family the day her family was to leave on a $6000 vacation. She recommended that I purchase travel insurance because you never know! Even though I did not have to file a claim I felt it was well worth the extra expense.

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.
