Ultimately the best insurance plan is one that allows you to travel without anxiety about what may or may not happen on your journey.
If you decide to take out a policy, we strongly suggest that you research the insurers claims payout record. There are plenty of horror stories of travelers paying hundreds and even thousands of dollars toward a policy only to find out the insurer would not play anything due to a vague clause in their contract. Reading the stories of policy owners who actually made a claim will be the best barometer for finding a fair and proactive insurer.
