Two years ago my husband and I were traveling in India. The day of our planned departure, the airline emailed that the flight to Washington DC was cancelled. The airline said they could only rebook us on a flight A WEEK LATER! We had to get back home much sooner than that, so I called Travel Guard from a pay phone. I was immediately connected with an agent who worked with me to find alternate flights. He was able to get us a flight home on another airline leaving that day. The reimbursement for the new ticket was sent promptly after I submitted the documentation. This was the second time Travel Guard came to our rescue when we were abroad, and I wouldn't travel without them!
