Easy to give this Plan high marks since I did not submit a claim. I have no idea how the Plan would actually perform in that event.. It could have been anywhere from wonderfully responsive to a complete nightmare to resolve. I will never know.

After years of purchasing travel insurance, this is the first time I have ever had to file a claim. We tend to take adventure trips to various countries, many of which are third world. I've never been concerned about having to cancel a trip, but rather getting hurt while on the trip. Unfortunately, my wife had an unfortunate accident that required arm surgery several weeks prior to our scheduled departure of a three week cycling trip - completely paid for and not refundable. I contacted Travelex and spoke with a very helpful agent who promptly emailed me the required forms. It took a little work to get everything filled out by the doctors and completed by me, but the requests were reasonable. I submitted the forms and was told it would take one to two weeks for their review. After two weeks I called to find the status of the claim and was told a check had been mailed the previous week. Sure enough, the next day, I received a check from Travelex for the entire amount of the claim. I will certainly be using these guys for any other trips we take.

While it is my hope that I will never need to file a claim on a calamity insurance policy, it is prudent to purchase it. We felt secure that we had it, just in case.

It was excellent compared to my husband's health insurance, which plan had high deductible for medical and nothing for dental.

I believe in having travel insurance. I had to use it one time for an unexpected cancellation and it was great having reimbursement.

We always purchase our travel insurance through InsureMyTrip, and usually choose Travelex plans. We have peace of mind because we have had friends who have had to make a claim, and they were treated well. We will be back.

Picking out the plan that provided the coverages was done easily online. We did not have to file any claims (thankfully) so don't how it would be working with the company in that regard. Travelex did a good job keeping us informed about our coverages, how to contact them when traveling, etc. So no complaints there.
