We didn't really interact with the insurance company until after the trip. The claim was not really easy to file - forms were somewhat complicated, but we did receive reimbursement for our travel delay related hotel cost.
I bought Travelsafe insurance through Squaremouth.com. My luggage was broken by a hotel assistant when it was stored in a holding room. The hotel’s manager refused to write an accident report. When I applied (July 2014) for damage claim (less than $100), a Travelsafe representative asked me for tons of different papers: credit card statement, my explanation, not Reparable Statement and so on. After I sent them all of these including not Reparable Statement for which I had to pay a repair store $15 plus tax. Travelsafe sent me letter in December (2014) saying they needed statement from the hotel. If a hotel personal refused to do it in July, they probably won’t even remember me in December. I still did not receive any money from the Travelsafe. I will not recommend this company at all because they refused to pay a small claim and asked for a ton of papers. I can only imagine how they handle big claims.

TravelSafe Is not reliable company. Company very bureaucratic even small claim it does not want to pay, asking more and more documents.
I submitted the claim more than a month ago (before the trip would have been) and it is still not done.
I was sent one form that did not clearly say where to return it,
Had to cancel my trip due to personal family issue. Was not able to get a refund. So they kept my money even though I did not make the trip.
Did not make the trip and they would not refund my premium. No Trp, No Coverage, No refunds!
No trip., No Coverage, No Refund!
I purchased the higher plus policy only to find out that a claim for a parents parent/step parents death can only be made if they die in the usa, canada or Mexico! Anywhere else and your out of luck with this policy type /provider. Be sure they die in a qualified country ! Very disappointed as I had chosen this policy specifically for the cancel for any reason option.
I provided detailed information, and felt the claim was valid. Travelsafe paid the claim in full, more quickly than I expected. I would use Travelsafe again for travel insurance.
We were forced to cancel our trip and never went. I called and requested a refund on my premium payment of $120. I'm not sure if I qualify for this or not but the girl I talked to on the phone said she'd find out and call me back but never did. Please contact me so we can talk more about this. Thanks.
I was completely unsatisfied with the outcome. First off all I heard nothing from them the entire time between filing the claim and receiving a check in the mail. I even called them because it was over their time frame. They were supposed to call me back in 48-72 hours but 4 days later I had to call them again to find out what was going on.
In the end they didn't give me the amount I believe I should have gotten. I contend they owe me another $250 but they refused. I even appealed the decision and was turned down.
I would never ever use them again.
Did not take the trip!
Totally disappointed - received nothing back. The Certificate indicates "YOU" cancel; however, despite the fact that "I" DID NOT CANCEL the trip, refund was refused.
we chose your company based on consumer report. My husband works in the insurance industry and we checked your rating. We read ratings on your company and both my husband and I were very pleased with the claims process. Please note we read reviews from other clients which were very good but o comments regarding the claims aspect. It took approximately 4-5 weeks process. We were never able to go on our trip due a medical situation. However the whole process was very efficient. Customer service was great. Both my husband and I would rather have gone on vacation. However., we would definitely recommend Squaremouth to anyone who is looking for a very good start solid travel insurance.
