This claim was easy to resolve. There were a few minor logistical glitches, all due to my own misunderstanding of their process. A couple of phone calls were necessary to locate the correct claim form and to submit the claim in their format, which seemed reasonable. I was glad to have had the insurance that covered the necessity to purchase essential items due to an unforeseen baggage delay (our first ever).
I had a claim. My other carrier was primary. They took over three months to process the claim. Squaremouth's carrier took less than two weeks.
1) Squaremouth? John Hancock? Who is whom? I was not clear if I was dealing with representative of insurance company or go between.
2) It took many months for my claim to be settled. Apparently more information had been requested via email, an email that I did not receive. When I called to
inquire about the status of my claim, it took a couple of calls to ascertain the status of my claim.
3) I had questions regarding aspects of my claim; it was hard to get questions answered adequately.
to buy the insurance is no problem.problem is when you need help and file the claim
i have a very bad trip and lots of problems with my trip but no help with the claim
the i have file a multiple claims but non of them was resolved yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
just a big problem (i didint have any clothes the airlines lost my 4 bags)and no help foom insurance
the trip was delay and change few times but no help from the insurance
Never again with that insurance company!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Need to keep the claim part oped as it has been just over a week frrom the reported accident of my wife, Linda. I did call to report the accident from the ship because my cell phone had no service. I was placed on hold twice and ran up a charge of $84.83 for 17 minutes on the phone at $4.99 per minute. I left the ship's number and my room number, but no one called back. I called again when I got home to make sure the accident was on file. Should be reimbursed for the call.
I did not receive documentation prior to my trip, nor had any interaction with the insurance company
I did not receive any documentation or instructions as to what needed to be done in case of emergency or illness
Insurance carrier refused to accept collect calls from overseas. We tried both phone numbers on the insurance document that we were sent. We had to find medical help on our own and pay for it out of our own pocket. We purchased a very high end policy and got nothing for our money. We intend to demand a refund. We had heard that most travel insurance was a scam and our experience is consistent with this wisdom.
I did not have any pre-trip contact but when I submitted my forms, downloaded on-line and submitted by mail, the claim was paid in a very reasonable period of time without any issues. It was definitely excellent customer service for a remote, international market. However, as an experienced int'l traveller, I always print and carry copies of my insurance forms and am sure that attending physicians sign them at the time of treatment. This has made made my insurance filings very easy and, using Squaremouth's vendors, 100% successful.
Did not realize that policy was for airfare only. Nowhere is that written in policy. My trip was a bus tour. Due to recent terrorist attacks, I almost canceled, but your agent informed me that only would my airfare be refunded.
That should be clearly stated in policy and on website!
Positive: The first agent at EuropAssist (the assistance service provided by the insurer) that we dealt with was very quick at getting our medical documentation translated, reviewed, and approved for medical repatriation coverage.
Negative: The next series of agents were not so good at rebooking our return flight: after an entire day of phoning and prodding, we found ourselves in a motel at Malpensa airport at 3am still not knowing for sure that we would have a booking at that airport later that morning. But in the end they did get us on a plane at 11am.
The insurance provider seems intent on avoiding as much reimbursement as possible. Transportation to an Italian hospital for treatment after EuropAssist couldn't find us a doctor nearby: not covered. Motel room at Malpensa which EuropAssist told us would be covered, and which we needed because they didn't finish rebooking us till the last minute: not covered. Forfeited hotel and train costs due to trip interruption: the receipts we sent aren't sufficient, please provide more. So far we've received about 5% of our claim, though we're still working on it.
