Before trip? No contact. No customer service, but I did not expect any.
No contact during trip. Contact was not possible.
Clain "requires" original receipts. There was no "original receipt for a cash purchased air e-ticket bought in an emergency. I hope I collect. It took me a week to get an airline confirmation of this purchase so I could complete my claim.
Everything was great until I had to cancel my trip because of my father in laws pending death. Then you retired to many personal questions from his doctors which broke the confidentiality laws. So I made the claim when he died with his death certificate and you still didn't refund my money. All I'm asking for was $200 back. I would think it would be in your best interest to refund such a small amount vs the bad reviews and recommendations that I will be passing along anyone and everyone on social media about how you opperate your business. You lead people to believe if they get your insurance they can rest assure if they need to cancel their trip well that's NOT the case!!!! I am very dissatisfied
I gathered up probably a dozen documents and forms to verify and complete my claim, converted them all to .pdfs and emailed them to the agent handling my claim. This was kind of tedious, but I doubt there is any other way to truly verify a claim speedily.
So, if you are on the fence about whether to purchase travel insurance, I would recommend considering whether it would be worth your time to save, gather, prepare and send claim information. If you are not good about doing paperwork and think you might not get around to completing a claim, the insurance might be a waste.
I have more time than money, so it was definitely worth it for me. The agent that handled my claim was exceptionally helpful and professional, and I was fully reimbursed for my claim. I appreciated being able to complete the process online, without snail mail or telephone tag. I would definitely purchase from iTravelInsured again.
Final documenttion did not arrive until the day we were leaving!!! Also had not been forewarned that more documentation would be arriving.
This was actually the third time that we used ItravelInsured for our trip insurance. The initial two occasions were a dream. Queries were promptly answered, quotes were immediately sent and follow-ups were timely and valuable. Additionally, I did not have to ask for documentation and when they were received, they were complete and accurate.
This time, I had a really tough time with my interactions. It was clear that our contact was either not reading my mails, did not fully understand English or just plain, was not interested. Moreover, I am the one who had to follow-up. Additionally, I had to request documentation and also remind my contact to send them.
Ultimately, we got the insurance finalised, so all's well.
Look, I know as clients, my small group of four, pose an unusual problem for your agents. We plan our trips way ahead of the due dates, because they are mainly big sporting events like the Olympics or FIFA World Cups. Moreover, we try to include any expense that impact our trips. In most instances, apart from the travel and accommodations, other expenses come in over the weeks and months following our first application for insurance; for example, tickets, rental car expenses etc. As proof, we only received our final batch of tickets for the Rio games, from Cartan, just 7 weeks before our departure Thus what usually happens is that I would request additions to the initial policy rather than a new policy.
Please do not use these comments to screw-over my contact; however, I will respectfully ask that you assign an agent to our account, who understand these nuances, so that the process can be smoothly executed. Russia 2018 is not far away.

I was stuck at LaGuardia (NY) airport flying back to Montreal on the last day of my policy due to winter conditions and I could not get anyone who would be able to extend my policy for another day.
While the forms to fill in were lengthy, sometimes repetitive and not always clear, I received prompt email responses to my questions, and no further requests for information or documentation once I had sent the claim form in.
It was great service, the insurer actually had an issue with their computer the day I bought their policy but squaremouth continued to check on it and call me with updates. Never got that before from any other firm. Great Service!! Plus it was the same person calling me all the time which was nice.
Did not use it during our trip
No claim was needed
Execellent insurance experience we didn't need to submit a claim and the vacation was fabulous, but the ease with quote and purchasing was fantastic and I will definitely be using your company again...
I did not submit a claim
We received one copy of the policy by mail rather than both that we had purchased (one for my husband and one for me).
The first few times I tried to call the emergency help line, on a Saturday morning, there was no answer and no way to leave a message. I tried again on Monday, two days later, and received an answering machine but no one called me back. Finally, I was able to get through to someone either later that day or the next day. When I was able to reach people on the help line, they were very helpful and pleasant.
The claim check was processed on February 16, 2010, but I didn't receive it until March 4, 2010. Part of this delay, at least a few days' worth, is because I have an overseas address. The paperwork I had to provide was extensive and somewhat burdensome, including some things that might have been difficult to prove if I had been asked. For instance, the time/date provided by the airline's website for delivery of our lost luggage was not actually the date/time it was delivered as that date/time was much later. In any case, I was very pleased from the standpoint of the people I was able to speak with on the help line and also, of course, pleased that they paid my claim without requesting any follow-up documentation. Of course, I had given them everything plus the kitchen sink, so.... I would use this provider again and I think the claim turnaround time was quite fast, all things considered.
