Travelex Travel Select
I've purchased Travelex Select from InsureMyTrip.com for my last 10 vacations and never had a claim. In August 2012, on a cruise ship somewhere off the Mexican Coast I suffered a heart attack in the middle of the night. After the E.R. Physician on board saved my life, I spent the next 11 days in a private hospital in Cabo San Lucas getting some of the best treatment available anywhere. Thankfully, my health insurance covered my very expensive bills from the hospital and what wasn't covered by them was covered by Travelex and Stonebridge. Please let me share the following tips for all:

1. ALWAYS ensure your U.S. health insurance plan covers you outside the U.S. Some plans do not, mine did and that was fortunate since the contracted hospital submitted bills totaling $219,000 U.S.

2. Understand that treatment provided on board is not generally covered under any plan. My bill was over $4,000.00 for three hours of treatment that saved my life.

3. Make sure someone keeps meticulous notes on expenses and receipts for everything. DO NOT expect to be reimbursed if you cannot prove you paid the bill.

4. Ask for copies of receipts and medical records from everyone that treats you. You'll need them for your claim!

As for my experience overall. My wife kept perfect notes and collected everything we needed. My family stayed at a local hotel to be close by just in case. Travelex and On Call stayed in touch with us throughout, arranged our return flights home and we submitted our claim with all the required paperwork received by them on September 14th, 2012. Our claim was processed quickly and efficiently and because our documentation was complete all of our expenses, trip interruption and medical expenses, were approved in full and we received our check for nearly $10,000.00 on October 13th. 2012. My premium was just $133.00 for my entire family. You tell me if it was worth it this time!

I can highly recommend Travelex and Stonebridge and applaud their professionalism. I never leave home without travel insurance and never will in the future. But please follow my tips above. No receipts, no reimbursement and ALWAYS download and read the contract BEFORE you buy. There is a reason travel insurance costs are so varied, they each cover different things. Don't assume, check whether everything you want covered is covered and there will be no surprises! Thanks to all at InsureMyTrip, Travelex and Stonebridge Casualty Co. for eliminating our stress and making us whole again. GREAT JOB!!!!

I travel frequently and want a yearly policy that covers me for 5 or 6 trips. I hate having to buy every time. since I am in excellent health I hate the premium increase you levy on my age group.

Travel insurance is expensive, but your plan was very competitively priced and was comprehensive in it's coverage. It was also easy to purchase on-line.

I did not have to file a claim thankfully but we were in a predicament that we almost were unable to take our trip. My husband was kicked by a horse 12 days before we were to go on our cruise, luckily it did not break his leg but left a large puncture wound which even though we went to the ER and started antibiotics right away - the wound got seriously infected. 5 days before we were going to leave on vacation, the doctor was contemplating putting him into the hospital for IV antibiotics. She decided to try one more course of doubling up antibiotics for 24 hours to see if we could avoid the hospital. We did that, and the infection started to subside. We were able to go on our trip as planned BUT I would never not InsureMyTrip. I was happy to know that if we had to cancel, my expenses would be covered. It is a peace of mine that way outweighs the expense of the insurance (which is very reasonable) Get it, Get it, Get it.. you never know what can happen....

Three days before our trip to the Galapagos, my brother-in-law passed away. The cruise company refunded our cruise, but we could not use it for a Galapagos trip...AND we had to take one cruise. In other words, if the Galapagos trip cost $6K and we decided to take a trip for $4K, we would lose the $2K. I was instructed to submit the cruise vouchers to the insurance company--they dealt with Celebrity Cruises--and we received a check for the full amount. The trip was very expensive. We were SO grateful we had the insurance. They processed the claim quickly and it was resolved and behind us. Will use them from now on on every trip we book.

The rep at InsureMyTrip did a great job in directing me in my purchase of insurance for my trip to Europe. Fortunately I did not have to use the service. I will call you again for my future trips and also refer you.
We had a great time in Spain, France and Italy on our cruise.
Thank you,

A true measure of the plan would have been if I had encountered an accident, etc. which I didn't. But I still liked having the peace of mind knowing that there was that coverage should anything go wrong.
