Who has the best travel insurance? The last time you took a trip, did you have travel insurance? If you were impacted by a natural disaster, suffered the hassle of lost baggage, or had a medical emergency, chances are good that you were wishing you had purchased a policy!

When it comes to tavel insurance, some people make the mistake of thinking that their credit card company offers protection, only to find out that their travel problems aren't covered. Other people forego travel insurance, assuming that their traditional health insurance policy will be enough to cover medical expenses - only to discover that it can't be used in another country.

Travel Insurance Center

TRAVEL INSURANCE CENTER Visit Site

Travel Insurance Center is one of several brands owned by Senior Market Sales, Inc. - and, as the name suggests, their target market for their products is the 50-and-up set. No worries if you are younger than that; they've still got travel insurance for you too.

This site is less polished than most of the travel insurance companies we reviewed. You start by entering the usual information about your trip, such as dates of travel, trip cost, and age of traveler(s). From there, you'll be taken to a grid with all of the plans that meet your needs. In our quote, there were a total of 9 different providers, such as AIG, Travel Insured, and Trawick International. The prices quoted were competitive with other providers. We didn't like that, for some policies, we had to click to see the price details rather than seeing them listed directly in the results chart. It was also confusing to have to click on multiple footnotes to see all of the different exclusions and other details for each policy.

We also got lost with the different tabs on our results page. We started out looking at Trip Protection plans, but several of the quotes had no coverage for trip cancellation. Then, there were additional tabs for Travel Medical, Emergency Evacuation, Global Insurance Benefits and Accidental Death. Would we have to piece together multiple insurance policies to cover those needs as well? The site didn't make it easy to answer that question. (Although we thought it was interesting to see that there are policies that specifically cover Kidnap/Ransom and War Risk.)

On the plus side, Travel Insurance Center's parent company has been in business for several decades and has an A+ rating as an accredited business with the BBB. Also, their customer service department is easily reached via toll-free number or email five days a week, for those who want to talk to an agent in person before deciding on an insurance plan for their travels.

Travel Insurance Center is trustworthy and reputable - but just not as sleek and up-to-date as many of the other companies we checked out.

Seven Corners

SEVEN CORNERS Visit Site

Based in Indiana, Seven Corners offers a wide variety of policies that they service themselves. In fact, Seven Corners is the preferred partner for AmeriCorps volunteers and was the only site we saw that offered unique coverage like Faculty/Student Travel Insurance and Visitor/Immigrant Insurance for people visiting or immigrating to the U.S.

To begin your quote, choose the blue button for either domestic or international coverage. If you're traveling domestically, you'll be asked if you're a US resident, visiting the US for business or pleasure, immigrating to the US, or a Student/Faculty member on a visa. For international travel, you'll need to indicate if you're traveling for less than or more than a year. As you select the descriptions that correspond to your travel insurance coverage needs, you'll be taken to a simple summary of the plans that match your trip.

Seven Corners offers three basic levels of coverage:

  • Roundtrip Economy
  • RoundTrip Choice
  • RoundTrip Elite

At the bottom of your results page, you'll find an easy-to-understand comparison chart of the benefits of each coverage level. On our results, we were told that we were not eligible for the Choice package; it was only when we scrolled down that we saw the fine print indicating that Seven Corners' Choice plan is not available in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, Virginia, or Washington - so, if you live in one of those 11 states, you essentially have only the highest and lowest tiers of coverage to choose from.

Once you choose from the available plans in your area, you'll be given options for customizing your coverage, such as Rental Car Damage and Flight Accident. The Seven Corners site doesn't make it easy to determine details like what reasons would be covered for cancellation; we had to click through several screens to get to the list, and then we couldn't find any options for popular upgrades like Cancel for Work Reasons or Cancel for Any Reason. If those are important to you, you may not find them with Seven Corners.

And, if customer reviews are any indication, there's another thing you may not find with this company: paid claims and support from their customer service department. While we found many reviews that were happy with Seven Corners' website, policies, and coverage, that satisfaction rating fell through the floor when we looked at customers who actually had to make a claim. We found dozens of complaints that said that their claims for covered reasons were denied, delayed, or just ignored altogether.

Given that the company only offers their own policies, and that their service on those policies has a less-than-stellar reputation, we can't recommend Seven Corners as one of our top choices for your travel insurance needs. We strongly suggest that you consider the higher-rated travel insurance sites in our review.

Like most types of insurance, travel insurance is bought in the hopes that you'll never need it. But, for most travelers, it's worth the added expense for the protection it provides.

Just like more traditional forms of insurance, such as medical and auto, travel insurance varies in terms of coverage, options, and costs. Depending on what you select, your policy may cover just the bare basics, like trip cancellation/interruption and baggage/personal items coverage. Or, you may opt for a very comprehensive plan that allows you to cancel your trip for any reason - not the standard list of covered cancellation reasons - and includes coverage for accidental death, emergency evacuation from a foreign country, and so forth.

There are many different companies that specialize in travel insurance. How do you know which one to choose? As you consider your options, here are several aspects to keep in mind:

  • Reputation. Does the travel insurance company have an established track record for customer satisfaction, not just during the process of buying a policy, but more importantly when claims are made? Has the business received any accreditations from A.M. Best or the BBB?
  • Selection. Can you find a wide variety of policies through this business? Do you have the ability to add on optional features, like Cancel for Work Reasons or Pre-existing Conditions coverage?
  • Cost. Does the site offer policies within your budget range? Travel insurance premiums are strictly regulated, but not every site offers policies on both ends of the price spectrum and everywhere in between.

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Travel Insurance companies currently available. We're confident that this information will help you select the right travel insurance policy to cover yourself - and your travel companions - in the event of any unforeseen complications with your trip!
