THe claim process was cumbersome, painfully slow, and apparently the staff is very overworked not being able to process submitted claims for at least two weeks once received. Even when requested, communication was by mail rather than email which further slowed the process. The company either did not know how to handle claim materials submitted by email attachments or the company server was set to block all attachments. I received different explanations as to why my attachments could not even be opened. A simple line in the application form stating that email attachments can not be opened would have been helpful and saved about a month in the claims process for me. Since I work as a graphic designer sending out files as attachments on a daily basis to many businesses, I know that I know how to create, compress, and send files in spite of John Hancock (Sevencorners) trying to tell me that it was all my problem.
Having said that, I felt the compensation, once received, was the expected amount based on the description of what I purchased. I only had to refile one item of which I have received notification that I will be reimbursed.
Over all the cost of the insurance was very reasonable compared to the policy price offered by the cruise company. The Squaremouth web site was very helpful in finding a policy to cover only the items I was interested in having covered. Squaremouth gets 5 stars, having to use the purchased insurance which generally means your trip is severly hampered gets 0. I am grateful that we received reimbursement, 5 stars; how long it took and the process for getting the reimbursement, 2-3 stars.
Am Sorry to say but due to misunderstanding with travel agency booking trip, I had to cancel policy. But John Hancock people to whom I talked in reference to this were very courteous and helpful. I have purchased John Hancock Travel insurance in the past will do so in the future base on this experience.
Very satisfied. I filed the claim, with the receipts, and received a check soon after. No questions asked!
The only reason for 4 stars, not 5 was a slight confusion in their reading my first claim submission, but this was readily cleared up and the claim reasonably
agents freely and politely answered questions which helped select product.
Did not need any help or customer service during the trip. Came close one day, when all trains stopped running from London's Eustus Station. Got rerouted from Paddington, and actually caught the ferry to Ireland so did not need help.
I never received anything in the mail, I had downloaded the Policy from the WEB site, but thought I was to receive documentation prior to my departure. Either John Handcock failed to follow up or It was not clear in the WEB site that there would only be the printed material from the Squaremouth.
I had no contact with the insurance carrier, there was no need.
No claims were filled
I do not know yet! I am just now making a claim!
The quotation, bind and claim process went very smoothly for my family. I highly recommend this product to others traveling outside the U.S.!!
