Suggestions for Travel insurance that includes evacuation in case of medical emergency, also trip cancellation etc. As much information as possible will be appreciated.
Thanks

Each traveler's needs are different. We have used Allianze and been satisfied, others may not have been. Perhaps this website will be helpful.

If you travel frequently, you might want to look into an annual plan which covers all trips during the one year. You can purchase different levels of coverage and it includes medical evacuation. I purchase from Allianz but other companies probably have it, too. My husband has a higher maximum payout from me since he travels more. Fortunately, we have never had to use this insurance but others have been satisfied.

Hmmm, have to look into that. I'm getting long in the tooth and travel insurance is getting expensive!

American Express has a very comprehensive plan. When you book a trip on their credit card they post a $29.00 (I think it is) fee on your bill. This is not a usual credit card "insurance" plan, but a very complete one with evacs and all kinds of insurance. Check it out. You have to sign up for it initially (no charge at that point), but whenever you book a flight or cruise they automatically charge you with the fee.

Ditto to what Fios reported. They include med. evacuation as well as the usual trip interruption, delays, etc.
I have used Allianz for several years now and never had a problem with them (only needing to use them twice), but now I will save the money and go with the Veteran's Advantage coverage. Added my wife on for half price earlier this year prior to our going to the Dominican Republic last week.
