People I talked to before buying the policy were not very helpful and did not have a friendly attitude.
I did not take the trip. I had to cancel because of an unexpected health issue.
After I submitted all the information required, the company still kept asking for more. My cardiologist sent everything they requested, but they still closed the claim. When I phoned and asked exactly what they needed, they finally gave me the dates from which they wanted the doctor's notes of my office visits. They could have done this in the beginning, but, I feel, tried to wear me down so I'd give up.
No comment since I did not use during trip
I fell and thought I sprang my foot while in Africa. I refuse to see a doctor while in Africa. Upon my return I contacted the insurance to let them know I plan to see my own physician and wanted to know how to file a claim. Insurance told me my coverage ended on the last day of my trip and since I did not contact the insurance company I could not file a claim. It was never bought to my attention that I had to call in an injury. I was very disappointed.
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
i didn't travel because there were terrorist attacks taking place where i was going. i filed a claim for the charges the travel agent and airlines were charging me and nothing was covered. i'll never buy travel insurance from squaremouth or travel insured again! what a joke!
Great insurance and prices. I was slightly disappointed because our cruise was cancelled once we were in Alaska. The cruise line paid for change fees and prices of ticket to get back to FL and refunded the cruise money or said they will. However with the certificate they are giving us to go back on the cruise next year we have to pay for the flight over again. I was hoping that this insurance would cover this but apparently when I called to inquire they told me it would not cover air fare that I have to pay again next year due to cruise being cancelled.
Had to cancel trip
Told me repeatedly I had submitted the correct paperwork and then would come back asking for more. This happened numerous times, One person would tell me the claim paperwork was enough and then another tell me they needed something else. I tried emailing docs in. They could never receive the emails so I had to hard mail everything, It was a very, very frustrating and long process. I eventually got reimbursed, but it took constant and persistent vigilance on my part, I think most people would have given up. Very, very frustrating. I definitely got the impression they were looking for any reason at all to deny the claim and not have to pay.
Had to file a claim because two people had to cancel for work reasons. They processed claim quickly and without hassle - I followed the directions they gave exactly and things went smoothly. We travel overseas VERY often for work and pleasure and this is the 2nd time in a year we have had to file claims because of canceling for work reasons - both times they paid without problems. Our claims were very legitimate and we had paper documentation to support them and they did what they said they would do.
We had a health emergency and had to go to the emergency room in China. Our tour guide was the best and did everything but the insurance company provided excellent backup and follow through. They contacted us many times until we determined that the issue was minor and we continued our trip.
Our emergency bill was only $30 so we did not file a claim and kept the hospital record as a souvenir.
There was no customer service provided before trip.
There was no customer service provided during trip. Customer service telephone hours of availability were not conducive to traveling internationally.
Insurance carrier sent very confusing forms and requests for documentation (some of which can't be obtained), clearly in the hopes that they will not have to pay out.
The only real contact I had with the company was with the claim after my trip. They were professional and handled the processing quickly.
