I didn't have to make a claim so I don't have experience with that, but the purchasing process was great. I will use this site again in the future.

This was the first time we have used insuremytrip to purchase travel insurance. We always buy travel insurance because one never knows what can happen either before or during a trip. I was especially impressed when the carrier, Travelex, sent us an email inquiring if we needed help because of an earthquake at one of our destinations. We did not need any assistance but it was good knowing that they had our backs.

I visited Puerto Rico on my trip. I was very impressed to get an email regarding services given the recent earthquake!

Fortunatey we never needed to use any portion of our policies. For this reason I cannot accurately rate any of the other questions although I do feel the prices could be a little lower considering the majority never use their policy.

I felt the cost for my insurance was high. I suspect it was high because I am now 80 years old and the plan did not take into account that I am in very good health and very active. However, the coverage and the agents with whom I spoke were excellent.

    Thank you for your feedback. Travelex bases their premiums on the age of the traveler and the cost of the trip.

Did not file a claim so difficult to know if the plan covered everything I expected; bought the plan just in case as i truly believe no one should travel without some sort of insurance plan.

Didn't need the plan on our travels so don't know how well it would have worked. Price seemed reasonable for coverage promised. Would use again.

We did not have to file a claim (thank goodness), but this insurance had everything we needed... cancel for any reason and medical coverage in a foreign country. The price very reasonable - much less than the ins offered through the cruise line. The comparison option on the website is user friendly and the chat feature is great. I had all my questions answered before I selected coverage. I also liked that I have until the day before I made my final payment, to purchase the insurance (for cruises only) - gave me plenty of time to research coverage that fit our needs. Thank you!
