It’s the Plans Steve Rejects that Makes TripInsuranceStore the Best Travel Insurance Website

“Trying to get travel insurance on line is too confusing – too many choices. Thanks for pre-screening reputable companies for me. Charles L., Laguna Nigel, California”

Why Does Steve Have Just 9 Pre-screened
& Hand Picked Travel Insurance Companies?

It comes down to the fact that I (Steve) have to be able to sleep at night:

  • I do not hide behind the phrase “All of the companies on our website are rated by A.M. Best”. Do you know how many highly ranked companies go bankrupt?
  • It’s so easy to earn money, why would I risk selling travel insurance plans from companies I don’t know well or trust? If you’re ever tempted to think money’s more important than life read Lucius Seneca’s work “On the Shortness of Life”.
  • I don’t have a hollow guarantee like “No Complaint Policy”. The truth is that not all travel insurance claims are paid to to customer’s satisfaction. Sometimes the travel insurance company makes a mistake (I have gotten these resolved), but other times it’s not a payable claim. You get our help if you have a claim, too.

Buying any insurance is a risk. You are trading a known certainty (your hard earned money) for an unknown quantity – the promise of the insurance policy doing what it says it will do. That’s why I pre-screened & selected the plans I feel comfortable representing.

You might say, “That makes sense but you should offer ____.” I (Steve) could have 30 different companies, but it’s as if I have a grocery store with limited shelf space. You may have tasty cookies, but I’m not going to take the Oreos off the shelf in order to test out your cookie. Oreos are proven, while your cookie isn’t.

Other reasons you won’t find every travel insurance plan on TripInsuranceStore.com:

  • You don’t have the time, ability or desire to analyze every possible travel insurance plan. Who needs 250+ plans? Less is more.
  • You can’t trust every travel insurance provider – some are like BMWs & others like Yugos.
  • You want expert advice – it’s not possible to be an expert in dozens of plans. You can call Deanna, Kim or Steve at 1-888-407-3854 or 816-282-6858 and we will help you.
  • You want your travel insurance plan to work without surprises.
    – We regularly receive calls that start with, “I didn’t buy travel insurance from you, but I’m hoping you can help me…” Sadly, we can’t help them.
  • Too many choices equal diminishing returns. Take this simple test: Quick – What are the 11 most popular Cola brands?

Over 250 different travel insurance policies are sold online. That’s the bad news. The good news is that you won’t have to wade through them all to find your perfect fit. We spend our time sorting these out so you can enjoy your life.

What it really boils down to is this: TripInsuranceStore.com isn’t a Travel Insurance warehouse. Our customers are intelligent, discriminating travelers who prefer working with experts. Common sense says it’s not possible to be an expert in everything (“Jack of all trades, master of none”).

Why Use TripInsuranceStore.com
  • We are all in the USA
  • You get good, not-in-a-hurry, unbiased advice:
    • Steve, Deanna and Kim are salaried – we are paid the same no matter which plan you order.
  • You get personal service – a rarity when you’re online.
  • You call the shots – you decide which plan you want & when you get it.
  • You’re not limited to one choice or confused by too many choices.
  • Our comparisons are based on your specific trip. We often recommend one plan for one trip and a different plan for a different trip.
  • We don’t have a hidden agenda to steer you to one company over another.
  • You get the same price from us as you’d get if you went directly to the insurance providers themselves.

You won’t regret using CSA, Travelex, Travel Guard, Travel Insured, TravelSafe, TripAssure and MedJetAssist.
