Default Helpful Info Site

On another post the question of insurance came up, if you go to insuremytrip.com, you can compare many many policies to decide whats best for you..I am in the process of doing it now..Some policies have just slight variances..I think what concerns me the most is, emergancy medical evacuation.

Has anyone here had to use it, or know anyone who had to use this assistance? CSA had no accidental death coverage,while the other 2 I checked did..This is what I mean by variances, it can get confusing, so this site helps to make comparisons a bit easier.

I know what you mean Trip. I always have to search for the policy that covers pre-existing conditions. I've yet to have to need to make a claim, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

I just bought insurance from that site last night. Decided to go with CSA without death benefits. We have pretty good life insurance policies that would pay well in the event of an accidental death, so decided that feature wasn't a big priority.

Like you, I am most concerned with medical evac. Since we continue to book during hurricane season, trip cancellation and interruption is also important.

I do like the site, it makes it easy to compare. Let me know what you decide!

Trip-that is where we got our insurance last year. Kids under ?17 were free. This year Cdns are not able to buy the Travelex Lite policy from that site, but I went on the Travelex site and I think it is possible from there-but I have to look into it more when the time comes(when we book a cruise).
