Default Trip insurance

Any recommendations for trip insurance? I have seen Travel Guard, Access America and CSA. I am not sure which one to choose. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.

Hi Carole,
I've personally used CSA and Access America, no problems with either, but luckly haven't had to make a claim.

Personally, I like Travel Guard the best -- it covers nearly anything that can happen, including pre-existing medical conditions. And, you'll find one of our advertisers in CruiseMates' classified area -- The Travel Concierge -- offers steep discounts on Travel Guard and others.

I've used them all and their coverage is pretty comparable, but I've never yet had to make a claim so it's hard to say how they rate when you really need their service.

Just remember that you have to purchase travel insurance within 7 days of making an initial deposit on your trip if you want the insurance company to waive any pre-existing medical conditions. That's really important if you or a family member is being treated for a chronic ailment that causes you to cancel your cruise.

Hi,
Just purchased cruise insurance through CSA and they no longer cover pre-existing conditions even if you get the insurance within 7 days of booking, which we did. I think they just recently changed that, used them earlier this year and it was covered, so check the policies before you pay for it.
