This is only my second cruise and for the first cruise I purchased my trip insurance through AAA, who was our booking agent. This time, I reserved my cruise with a different travel agent so I am looking for trip insurance options and found InsureMyTrip.com. LOTS of options on this site, so can anyone tell me if they have used this site, and if yes, can you give advice as to what to look for and what to avoid. The obvious to me was the medical and emergency medical evacuation but what else should I evaluate on? Also, has anyone had to use their travel insurance and what was your good/bad experiences in dealing with them? Should I avoid certain trip insurance companies that may be listed on InsureMyTrip altogether? My cruise doesn't depart till 6/20/10 so I have some time but don't want to wait till the last minute.
We included cancel-for-any-reason coverage on our last cruise due to H1N1 concerns. If you want this coverage you have to buy the insurance within a couple of weeks of your booking.

I've used them for all three of our crusies. If you have a pre-existing condition you have to buy the insurance within a certain time frame for them to cover a lose that is related to that condition. I've never had to file a claim either, thank goodness.

Wow, lots of spam running around these days. I've seen InsureMyTrip.com discussed on here before with good words said. Myself, I'm a USAA member, so I do everything through them, and suggest that anyone who served honorably do the same.

My opinions are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the opinions of The Walt Disney Company nor any of its subsidiaries.
I use CSA travel protection now, and have never had a problem even with claims. Make sure you have trip interuption and baggage loss as well, you just never know.
The agency I work for also uses CSA most clients are satisfied. Another carrier I like is itravelinsured.com.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
That's who I use whenever I do get insurance.
(which is rarely)
OP: yes that's a good site.
