Travel Insurance Reviews TravelSafe Basic

Basic is the most economical of the three TravelSafe plans and may be ideal if you are traveling on a budget. Coverages offered include Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption for basic perils, Baggage, Travel Delay, Medical, and Emergency Medical Evacuation. This plan offers an optional Extended Personal Property Pac, if eligible, which removes exclusions for professional or occupational equipment and some electronics.

Gave us peace of mind, in case, for whatever reason, we couldn't go.

    Thank you for your 4+ Star Review for the TravelSafe plan. However, you did mention that it would have allowed you to cancel "for whatever reason you couldn't go." Actually Trip Cancellation would have allowed you to cancel your trip prior to your departure but only for a "covered reason". The number one covered reason in all plans is the unexpected sickness, injury or death of you, a traveling companion or a family member, but there are other covered reasons to cancel that may vary between plans. You can review the list of covered reasons by clicking on the dollar amount of Trip Cancellation coverage when comparing your quotes.

This insurance was to cover a trip to Turkey for my grandaughter's 16th birthday present. Due to the recent terrorist activity in Turkey I changed the trip to Peru. I incurred cancellation fees as well as other upcharges due to the last minute changes. I inquired as to at least getting the airline cancellation fees reimbursed and was told that due to the fact that I was travelling within the same time frame I was not entitled to any reimbursement.

I had to cancel my travel plans because I needed emergency surgery before the trip. I submitted claims and TravelSafe reimbursed me for my non-refunded travel costs but only making me jump through hoops to provide documents for every single expense and it took a long time to receive the check. Make sure that you have independent 3rd party proof for every expense.
