I broke my hip just prior to the trip and was unable to travel. They responded promptly to my emails and once the doctor filled out his part, their reimbursement was efficient.
This insurance company makes it terribly difficult to submit a claim.
-They not only require a receipt for food/lodging (which is fine), they also want to see those charges listed in your credit card bill. Wouldn't it be enough to see the receipt?
-They also require you to get letters from hotels and airlines that they did not give you a refund - who does that??? So I am now supposed to call all the hotels and the airline and ask them for a letter. The airline says they have no such letter to send.
- Obviously, I paid for the insurance so that is why I am sending them a claim. Now they want proof that I actually paid for the insurance (not only an e-mail confirmation of the insurance plan but also the credit card bill that it went through.
- Same as above, I paid for the airfare that is why I have an e-ticket. They also need proof that it went through my credit card so they are asking for a copy of my credit card bill.
-So now I have a 1/2 inch stack of paperwork for my claim.
-Now, they are denying to pay 100% of my claim and I'm only asking for food and lodging.
We had to cancel our trip beforehand due to medical reasons. The process to submit a claim was very laborious and burdensome; however, once everything was submitted the claim was processed and paid in a timely manner.
We were denied boarding on our outbound flight and missed a day of our vacation. We have made a claim but thus far Travel Insured international has found every reason under the sun to deny our claim. They keep asking for more and more documentation, when what they have been provided is more than adequate to verify what occurred. We will never deal with them again. Can you help us?
In one word, a truly "Outstanding" experience, someone I rarely say these days. Upon my return to the U.S., I decided to contact the company since I believed I might be entitled to file a claim.
First surprise: Clearly seeing a phone number listed on the policy. Imagine. Being able to contact someone to "talk' to a human being. None of this " please go to our website for FAQs" nonsense.
Second surprise: When calling, I actually got connected to a live person within a minute. None of the 30 minute hold times where you hear how important you are. Additionally, I was able to understand the individual.
Third surprise: After explaining my situation (and hoping that I was correct in thinking I had a basis for filing a claim), I was told that I was actually able to claim some additional expenses. I was actually speaking with a person who was trying to help me.
Fourth surprise: Filing a claim was easy. I complete a few forms, scanned them, and emailed them to the company. In additional to acknowledging the forms, I am able to follow the status of my claim, which I just submitted. .
Obviously, I am very happy with this company. Assuming I do not receive any surprises with respect to my claim (in which case I will gladly update this review), I highly recommend this company to anyone interested in travel insurance.
And finally, for the record, I have no relationship with this company and rarely complete such a positive review.
I was operating in Nepal under very difficult conditions with minimal telephone service. When I requested that my policy be extended for 1 more week due to being needed on aid work the operator told me she could not help me and told me to call back during normal work hours. I said I could not do that and she simply told me she could not help. Poor service at best. Some people like me operate at places having things like minimal service and 12 hour time differences. Why bother with travel assistance?
They fight against paying small claims (2nd experience with same firm). When paying cost of driving 800 miles to catch a flight after the first leg was cancelled, they offered to pay gas money. None of the other costs of operating a car (which the IRS estimates to be $0.56 / mile.) I don't like these guys. They think they're following the letter of the law (policy they wrote), but it is NOT the intent of the policy or the impression given from the advertising materials.
There is no customer service, just a web site that gives incomplete information. It says "Lost bags greater then some number of hours" = $300 per bag. Well, what it should say is "Lost bags, and if you go and by stuff to replace it and keep your receipt you can get up to $300" Maybe I'm just naive, but the way the web site read is totally misleading
Again, my bags were lost and BA doesn't have the sense of urgency I see when bags are lost in the USA. Called the insurance when bags were still not back in 24hours (had bought a hair straightener before calling) - and was then told - you get up to $300 for things you buy when the bags are lost. Non disclosure is what I call that
We had plans to go to NYC, but the storm of Jan 2/3, 2014 caused us to cancel the trip as all flights were canceled. We received 100% of our claim with only one claim form sent. No delaying tactics at all on the part of Travel Insured Intl.
Plan to use again!

Called 24 hour assistance from New Zealand for lost baggage and I was told that my policy allows me to spend $200 a day up to $1,000 until baggage is delivered to you. Lodged claim for a couple hundred dollars for emergency items guess what you are not covered because amount spent is too big. This is your business practice and I see you are very good at it. Thanks god I did not get sick that would have been a nightmare dealing with the crooks.
Lord is watching and you will pay one day for deceptive business practice. You got away close to $500 from me for premium and claims together.
