Cannot speak to how well they handle claims as we had no need to file one . We chose this company as it allowed us to buy the coverage we needed without having to buy coverage for a lot of items we didn't need (such as coverage that might be needed outside of the US). There were still some items (we are retired so wouldn't need the loss of job coverage) but it would be hard to have a policy designed just for us with out increasing the overall cost due to added manpower needed for such policies.

I did not use the plan so can't say how good the customer service is. They were great at providing the correct plan I was looking for at a reasonable price.

I didn't end up using the plan so for me it was the price that is the only thing I can comment on. I was most interested in the medical coverage in case of injury overseas and this plan seemed to be good.

The Claim was handled fairly and prompt. How ever their claim form was unnecessarily redundant.

I travel several times per year and many times outside of the country. I have never purchased travel insurance before. I am pretty much a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. I received an email from my cruise company that in order to go to New Caledonia, I would have to have coverage. This was just a couple of weeks before my cruise. I jumped on the internet in order to purchase insurance and was able to purchase with ease and it seemed to be a reasonable price. Oddly, New Caledonia never asked to see proof of the coverage while I was visiting so I really didn't need the coverage but at least it was easy to obtain.
