    Hi everyone! OK, so we are considering a cruise :cool1:, but are considering a GTY room and one where you have to pay in full etc. etc. No cancellation! So we want to buy insurance to cover us just in case.

    There are approximately 10,000,000,000 threads on insurance. I've spent time in most of them. I've been to the various sites that shop the different companies for you.

    the one that stood out to me for the price and benefits was travelsafe.

    Has anyone dealt with them and, more importantly, had a claim with them, and what was their experience? I'd love some feedback here. The only specific Travelsafe thread that came up was a couple of folks from Canada and the only response was from someone recommending something else.

    Any help you can give us would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    We buy through DVC's plan. I can't remember the name, but it wasn't that expensive. Didn't have to use it, so don't know whether or was good or bad. :confused3

    GTY rooms do not require payment in full. *GT rates are the ones that require the payment in full - big difference...

    GTY room is a room in a specific category - you book a 5B GTY, you will get a 5B (or better) room. These rates are subject to the same cancellation penalties than a standard room.

    IGT/OGT/VGT rooms are rooms TYPES - you book OGT, you will get an outside view (or better room. These are restricted fares that require full payment at once.

    I haven't had to file a trip insurance claim in about 21 years, but I do know that TravelSafe has a good reputation and is actually part of a different well-known provider (can't remember which. Nationwide, maybe?)

    Anyway, they do have a good reputation and I've heard that they're good about paying claims and all that.

    I purchased Travel Safe insurance for a cruise i took to Alaska in June and for an upcoming cruise on the Wonder. I feel comfortable using them, as I think they have a good reputation. I bought the coverage almost immediately after making the deposit, so that previous conditions are covered. I also like that the amount for medical evacuation is quite high.

    I filed a claim with them previously. Everything was handled quickly and the company paid out as expected.

    TravelSafe is one of the 6 companies that the Trip Insurance Store (www.tripinsurancestore.com) sells. I have purchased their policy several times, but not had to make a claim.
