Why do I need to provide so much documentation to file a claim?

Short Answer

The amount of documentation necessary to process a claim is determined on a case by case basis, and is required in order to validate your claim.

More Detail

Supporting documentation helps to confirm that you were eligible to be covered, and that you suffered a financial loss. Documentation may include, but is not limited to, a medical report, physician statement, cancellation confirmation, receipt, credit card statement, or itinerary. Contact your travel insurance provider as soon as reasonably possible to report a claim and find out what documentation will be required in your situation.
