Editor Review of TravelSafe
The Good: The first to offer ‘cancel for any reason’, TravelSafe has ensured this benefit is unique in that it does not require you to cover all travel costs – just the portion you want covered – and those insured costs are covered up to 100%. Medical coverage is primary for international travel. The package plans include missed connection benefits and the popular non medical evacuations. Specific package plan available for groups of 10 or more. A short 60-day look back period for pre-existing conditions. Thorough coverage from terrorism to hurricanes to layoffs.
The Drawbacks: AD&D maximums are low when compared to other companies.
The Bottom Line: TravelSafe provides solid, trustworthy products with several optional coverages that help you customize your plan. The ‘cancel for any reason’ benefit is unique in the industry and gives travelers a little more choice.
