Travel insurance

I am booking my stay through turksandcaicosreservations, and they do not offer travel insurance. Can someone provide me the name of a reputable place to buy this insurance? I see many online, but I want to make sure I get a reputable company. Thanks!

We've used TravelGuard for years and feel very comfortable with them. Not necessarily the cheapest by any means, but they are extremely reputable and reliable. Some years ago had to make a quite substantial claim for a cancelled vacation because of the unexpected death of a relative. TravelGuard could not have been more helpful and efficient in dealing with the claim.

We have used Travel Guard for 4 years now. Travelguard.com Fortunately never had a claim so no experience there. They were recommended to us by a local insurance agent where we live...that's who they use for planning their trips. They did have some claim experience and were pleased.

We have always used insuremytrip.com. They give you a ton of different plans to choose from with all different levels of coverage. They are very helpful on the phone too if you have any questions. Good luck! :-)

My major concern is to be covered for medical & evaculation coverage. Travel Guard covers up to $150K, FrontierMEDEX is unlimited, Medjet Assist is unlimited, ON CALL International is unlimted I only pay about 1/5th of the regular airfare and we got our new base of operations covered, so I want to be covered again for strange insect bites, major tropical diseases, major medical crisis or accidents, evaculation back to the states, etc. Caveat, don't go for a super low $39 travel insurance policy. They usually have a lot more exclusions and I don't to be informed "It's not covered" when a claim is presented. Look @ the reviews & ratings of companies before you purchase. DR. JIM
