Travel Insurance for your Train Trip
Our company, Canadian Rockies Trains, has been dealing with train travelers for more than 20 years. Some of our travelers have had to take advantage of their insurance because an accident, illness or unforeseen issue presented itself before they were able to travel or while they were traveling.
Rocky Mountaineer works with Allianz for its travel insurance. However, we suggest you shop around because numerous clients have said the process of filing a claim and getting your money back from Allianz is very difficult. Buying insurance is easy. Collecting on a legitimate claim is much more difficult.
In order to significantly reduce the chance of our travelers having to deal with difficult travel insurance companies, we searched the web for reliable providers. We discovered a lot of websites that supposedly review travel insurance companies are not actually reviewing them but only advertising them in return for healthy commissions. Most of these websites ignore what actual people say about their travel insurance experiences when they tried to file a claim with the company.
However, we did find what we believe to be a reliable travel insurance site: Insure My Trip. This company actually relies on the reviews of thousands of travelers and does not recommend a company that doesn’t have at least a 4 star, out of 5, rating.
Therefore, we recommend that you consider Insure My Trip website as a place to shop for your insurance.
Another option is to read this article from Forbes that includes suggestions about Travel Insurance providers.
We are not affiliated with Insure My Trip in any way and we do not make any money on any transaction between you and the company. We are recommending this company because we want our travelers to have the best possible experience.
