Though we didn't need to use the plan on this trip, I had a peace of mind having the medical coverage while on a ship. At our age "over 65", medical issues were our greatest risk. The price was very reasonable. I will buy it again if we cruise again.

Travelex Travel Select
My trip included a stop in Barcelona and a flight back to the US from Barcelona. Riots broken two days before my flight there, I contacted Travelex and was told that any diversion from Barcelona are at my cost and the policy doesn’t cover Civil Unrest. I had to guarantee my safe return to the US on 10/19 due to work commitments. I found out that all of Catalonia organized a general strike and a march on Barcelona for that day and the day before. I had no choice and had to purchase a ticket going back home from Paris. that ticket cost an additional $515, a cost that I expected is covered by the policy. There is no way, ill ever forget that. How often civil unrest happen, that it wouldn’t be covered. What’s the point of paying for a policy that is useless. Rest assured that I will not shut up about it to my friends. Employer, family.

    We appreciate your feedback. Here is the reply from Travelex:

    "Thank you for taking the time to post about your experience on Insure My Trip.

    The Travel Select policy purchased is a Named Peril Policy, meaning any reason for Cancellation or Interruption is listed in the policy details, and if it is not listed, then there is no coverage. The policy details which were sent to you, via email, on October 4, 2019, at 9:38 am, when the policy was purchase, also lists all the exclusions.

    The exclusions listed on the Travel Select plan are standard in the Travel Insurance Industry and do reference very specific scenarios.

    We empathize with your unfortunate situation, and we are happy that you arrived home safely. However, it is important to remember that insurance is highly regulated, and all claims are determined based on the documentation submitted in relation to the policy that was purchased.

    Kind Regards,
    Amber"

I thought the site was thorough in showing me several insurance options for my vacation and needs and first payer vs second explaining and showing me the policies to read prior to me purchasing Travelex which covered all my needs at a reasonable price. I will be using them for future travels.

Happily, I had no need to file a claim, so I can't review the company's responsiveness or procedures for handling claims. But this policy offered the coverage I wanted at the best price.

The only thing this trip didn’t cover was the airlines ticket because I had purchased it with points.

Fortunately, we did not need to use but it was reassuring to know we had coverage: especially after seeing 3 emergency evacuations on our cruise.

Because I took out this plan close to the departure date the majority of the claim was not paid out. My trip was cancelled because the airline went into administration the day before I was due to fly. The policy 'small print' meant my flight was never covered on this policy yet the coverage was accepted by Travelex when it was applied for. The system for signing on clients at Travelex needs to be improved and a policy should be declined if full coverage is clearly not stated at sign-up. Whilst I understand that all policies have restrictions and limitations, in this particular case I was left feeling that the old clichés about insurance companies certainly apply to this company : 'if there is somewhere in a policy that allows the insurance company to wriggle out of paying 100% of a claim then they will use that loophole'. Shame on Travelex. I chose this company because of their good reviews and I took out this policy in the belief that trip cancellation would be covered 100% - I was wrong. Will never use this insurance company again as it let me down just when I needed them.

      Thank you

      I can confirm that the claim adjuster did contact me and that an additional payment has been made.

      This matter is now closed to my satisfaction and I would now reconsider using Travelex for my future travel insurance needs.
