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.

Insure My Trip

INSURE MY TRIP Visit Site

Insure My Trip has come a long way, with a sleek new format to their website that brings them much closer to the top when compared with other companies.

The first question you'll have to answer is your destination, which was unique. From there, you'll be asked the usual questions about your travel dates, ages and state of residence of any travelers, and so forth - pretty standard so far.

Then, we really were blown away by Insure My Trip's results page. Right at the top, we were shown three recommended plans selected by their SMART algorithm: one matching the top coverage, one that was middle-of-the-road, and a third that was best for the budget (almost like the story of the Three Bears). There were a total of 14 different insurance companies represented in our quote; in general, Insure My Trip offers policies through 20 providers.

And, above the results, there was a place to select any must-haves for our policy: Cancel for Work Reasons, Cancel for Any Reason, Pre-Existing Condition Waiver, and so on. That made it very easy to make sure we got the policy we needed.

Finally, within the results list, each policy had a rating from 1 to 5 stars, along with numerous customer reviews (one policy, the Generali Global Assistance Standard plan, had over 7,000 reviews!). Every policy had an "Add to compare" button, so that we could easily keep track of our preferred options.

Insure My Trip gives you a review period; if you buy your policy and then find something you don't like in the fine print, you can cancel and get your money back. The terms and length of that period vary according to the provider, policy, and by your state of residence, so do check the fine print.

We also got a helpful live chat pop-up when we got to our quote results page; we could ask a licensed agent any questions we had about the policies. This level of customer support is also shown in Insure My Trip's "Anytime Advocates": if you make a claim that's denied by the insurance company, you'll be assigned a representative that will work on your behalf to understand the denial and even help with your appeal process. According to the Insure My Trip site, this advocacy program saved travelers over one million dollars since its inception in 2009!

Everything about our experience using the Insure My Trip site for our travel insurance left us feeling informed and impressed. We're confident you'll be able to quickly find the policy that best meets your needs, and that you'll have plenty of support should you need to file a claim.

Continued from above

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!
