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.

Travelex Travel Basic
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.

I read the plan through and was satisfied that the coverage would fit with the trip I planned. I was very happy with the flexibility that was offered as I added flights and destinations to my original trip. It was never a problem and the expanded coverage was always easy to obtain. I also was happy I did not have to test this the plan as I never needed to use it.

Fortunately, I didn't encounter any obstacles before or during my trip and did not have to file a claim. Therefore,I can't really comment on the plan's responsiveness to problems, but I'm very happy that I didn't need to find out!

I purchased this policy, with the inclement weather of the NE area being a concern, when it would be time to fly out for our trip. Turns out I was blindsided when my spouse became ill and had to be hospitalized right before our trip. We had to cancel our trip. I made a claim, filled out the claim forms and submitted the required paperwork. After I sent the claim package in, I was sent a check for our total losses in less than three weeks. We will use this travel insurance company again, with the hopes of not having to use it, but the security of having it if we need it.

Travelex requires too much documentation. Customers might normally not keep boarding passes to prove that they actually followed through on the travel itinerary. They need to provide an alternative method for offering proof.
Travelex processed my claim quickly and for the full amount claimed.

    Thank you for your 4 star review. Although we are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the request for documents, we are very pleased to know that Travelex did provide you with the expected reimbursement.

    Most providers including Travelex allow insureds to submit claims online. Included on the website, you will find a list of "Frequently Asked Questions" along with the claim forms and a list of the required documents for each type of claim. Many of our customers review and print out this information prior to departing on their trip.

    One fact that cannot be stressed enough is to save your receipts and proof of expenses so that you can be accurately reimbursed, whether it be costs due to a delay of travel for hotel or meal, or medical records for emergency treatment received. This is especially important for medical care received overseas, as it can be incredibly difficult to get this paperwork once you have returned home. For filing a claim, nothing is more important than having accurate documentation for your loss.

    Our licensed insurance experts would also be happy to explain any part of the insurance policy. We are available to assist you by phone at 800-487-4722, or by chat, Monday - Friday, 7am-12am EST and Saturday - Sunday, 9am-9pm EST.

My husband and I have been traveling since 2004 and wouldn't leave on a cruise without cruise insurance. I have used insure my trip for many years and feel it has many plans to choose from and all reasonable.

We had to cancel our trip just days before departure. I called Travelex, they sent claims forms immediately via email. I submitted forms and documentation by postal mail, and received full claim payment into my account within 9 days! I was amazed, because some of our friends on the same tour had cancelled months earlier, with other insurance companies, and still had no response from their insurance carriers! Travelex thru InsureMyTrip will always be my first choice in insurance!
