Reviews and Testimonials

“I insured my trip on a river cruise with Travel Guard. Unfortunately, two weeks before I was due to travel, I became ill and my physician said I could not complete my travel plans. Filing a claim was painless and representatives were helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. I received my reimbursement quickly, the peace of mind my Travel Guard policy afforded me was immeasurable, and I’m very grateful to have chosen them as my provider.”
