Travel Insurance
« on: January 06, 2015, 09:31:05 am »
Does anyone have experience with purchasing travel insurance as suggested by ACA?
I booked a self contained trip for 2015.
My medical insurance should provide normal health care issues.
The cost of the trip and airfare are at risk if I can't go for some reason.

The reason I ask, is my past experiences with insurance has been poor.
The sales literature shows all the benefits when you are purchasing, but when it comes time to make a claim they are full of weasel fine print.

That's why it is important to read the fine print before you purchase. I am sure there are disclosure requirements.

Agreed.  I always do, but people interpret things differently depending on the perspective you are reading from.
I read some  words in my favor that the insurance company reads in their favor.
So I was asking for some real world experiences.

My wife and I use Divers Alert Network (DAN). We have yet to use any of their services but we are about to submit a trip interruption claim. If all goes well, we should be reimbursed for our additional flight costs...we'll see.

Enjoy the ride,
