I know that this topic might have been done somewhere else, but I wanted to know if anyone knows where I can get a good insurance rate for a round the world trip from Toronto. I live in Canada and has been looking at insurance rates. So far, STA is offering the best rate. For both my husband and I, we are getting the top insurance coverage (includes baggage, trip cancellation & interruption, and medical) for a total of $595.00 Cdn.
Can anyone tell me if this is a good rate??

Thx

Hi

i have looked at both STA & Insure and Go for my round world trip and insure and go seemed to be a good bit cheaper for practically the same policy so might be worth looking at that....

Oh yea, I forgot there was a thread a while back about someone who had a really bad experience with STA. Their stuff was stolen and STA gave them the "runaround," So I guess there service is very poor also.
