I searched for a travel insurance company on the AM Best website and do not see it listed. Can you explain why? Published by Chris Harvey January 24, 2008 The AM Best ratings apply to the underwriters of the policy. All of the carriers that sell travel insurance provide policies underwritten by other insurance companies. Related articles: One of the members of our family is much older than the rest of us. Does that effect the premium? What does "baggage delay" cover? What is "International Medical" travel insurance? May I insure a family member joining us on our trip, but already out of the country? If a hurricane watch or warning is issued that may impact my travel plans, up to what point can I still purchase travel insurance?
