We're looking for a reputable place to get travel insurance for our several week (8) trip from the US to New Zealand. Our primary concern is medical coverage, but any plan that offers additional coverage for personal effects / electronics (laptop, cameras, etc.) would be good too. There seem to be a lot of websites out there, but we're not sure how to check the reliability of a company. Right now we're between:
World Nomad (underwritten by BCS insurance), suggested by Lonely Planet's website. They seem pretty affordable, about $145 for 2 months, and cover personal items as well as medical. Has anyone heard anything +/- about this company?
International Medical Group (IMG) is another option offered through AAA, but they seem to be only for medical, and had limitations on what activities they covered.
There are so many companies and options out there, just wondering if anyone had any experience or advice to offer?
