    I had to file a claim due to the British Airways strike when BA cancelled my return trip from London. Thus far the process has been very straightforward and the customer service reps could not have been more cordial and helpful. I still have to gather a few supporting docs but I have every confidence that the claim will be settled quickly -- they told me about 10 working days. They also told me I will receive updates on the claim status during the process. Very pleased!

    We had to cancel our trip due to a medical issue. Tin Leg was very easy to deal with and told us exactly what we needed to submit for the claim...proof of purchase, proof of cancellation, and a medical form completed by our physician. We had our check one week after submission. Highly recommend this company and will use them in the future.
