Price was competitive and signing up was easy. Talked once with a representative who was very pleasant and helpful. Would use again!
Great customer service. Answered questions and provided information to all my questions on a one on one basis. Never had any question that if needed this company and it's personnel would be ready to provide assistance and transportation in a medical emergency. Very comforting experience, we will use them during our next extended travel.
I have submitted the paperwork and have been waiting for a call. I scheduled for a call last week but did not receive the call at scheduled time or at other tim. I am still waiting to get paid for the medical visit.
I did not completely understand the policy limits vis a vis reimbursement of airline ticket costs and those could be explained better.
We had to cancel our trip because of my wife's illness and we filed a claim for which we received insufficient reimbursement of covered expenses; we are appealing the claim now and that is why it is not yet complete. I have been in touch today with Brandy Morse who is helping sort out the issue of insufficient reimbursement as it relates to your Zero Complaint Guarantee(one of the main reasons we used Tin Leg to begin with!)
I purchased trip insurance through Squaremouth because I used them on a previous trip, and I found insurance that was less expensive with better coverage than the insurance offered by my tour company. I found the process to be easy. Unfortunately, my wife was hospitalized 3 days before we were scheduled to depart, so I filed a claim. The Tin Leg web site explained the process well, and filing the claim was not particularly difficult because I had only two expenses to claim for -- the tour company's and the air ticket agency. Once I documented the claim properly and submitted it, I received full payment within a few weeks.
I haven't received a settlement or any information about my claim other than that they have received my paperwork.
The Squaremouth site provides a convenient and user friendly tool to compare the travel insurance policies of several different companies and select the appropriate coverage for the trip. We selected the Tin Leg Standard policy for our trip to South America. We had to cancel our trip due to medical reasons. When I contacted customer service to get assistance and instructions on filing a claim, the representative sent an e-mail stating that the claim forms were attached, but there was no attachment. I wrote back to her, again requesting the forms, and this time she sent the wrong forms (Seven Corners vs Tin Leg, although the forms seemed identical except for the logos). During a phone call to customer service, I was instructed to download and complete the proper Tin Leg forms. I completed the claim forms, sent the claim by registered mail, and received confirmation from the postal service that the claim was delivered on September 21. I received nothing from Tin Leg. In early October, I contacted customer service by e-mail and provided our change of address, as we were returning to our winter home in Arizona. I received an e-mail response advising that our claim had been updated with the address change. For the next 5 weeks I heard nothing from Tin Leg.....no request for more information, no status of the claim, nothing. It was very disconcerting to hear nothing for such a long period when dealing with what for us, was a very large amount of money and a straight forward claim. A simple, short e-mail advising that no additional information would be required and the claim was being processed would have been appreciated and appropriate. On November 6 a check for half of the claim amount arrived. It had been mailed to our old address and then was forwarded to our Arizona home. Three days later, a second check for the rest of the claim arrived, also forwarded from the old address. The EOBs attached to both checks state in the remarks section: "Letter has been sent under separate cover." It is a week later, and no letters have been received.
The comments above are not serious complaints, just my observations and concerns. It may be that in today's impersonal, digital way of doing business, customer service and keeping the customer informed are not a priority.
The policy was easy to purchase but everything after that was difficult. I have purchased 6 prior policies from Squaremouth and never previously needed to file a claim. I filed a claim for the first time after a recent trip and after a number of weeks without a response I called Tin Leg. The customer service representative informed me that they had misplaced my paperwork. A few weeks later I called back and received contradictory information from another representative. A few weeks later and after multiple phone calls my claim was rejected. I filed an appeal and this was also rejected after an inordinate amount of time and phone calls. I contacted the Zero Complaint team, and found no effective advocacy. I have since started purchasing travel insurance through a different company and no longer use Squaremouth.
No strike coverage? Air France had a work dispute and cancelled our flight. Have your attorney read the cryptic policy and understand the doublespeak. When they have to explain to you how a strike is not covered you know the language is intentionally suited to not have to pay your claim. My parents where on the trip with us on the exact same flight yet bought Allianz and had no issue with their claim for the exact same flight and issue. Do trust this company or use their insurance. Maybe I am old but who ever heard of not covering an airline strike?
I got under 50% of my medical bills reimbursed (210 out of 500+).
I got rejected the first time, for a reason which wasn't true, re-submitted my claim and got it accepted.
Never got notified of the rejection, so I had to call to get the case re-opened.
The second case got stalled at a step, so I had to call to follow up again.
And I'm still waiting to get my claim cheque. So really it's still unfulfilled.
Whole process felt like, and still feels like you're trying to **** over the customer.
