this was a massively horrible drawn out claim process (2 months) to get a $75 suitcase replaced after it was damaged by my airline. further when final payment was made today I was advised that there was a deduction for depreciation. I was not made aware of this when I bought the policy and was told when I bought it that the insurance was replacement, not replacement - depreciation. I would never buy another product from this company again and will tell all of my other travel companions about this company. Insurance is supposed to be piece of mind, not another hassle.
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.
This company was very easy to deal with and made the whole claim submission easy. They processed the claim quickly and we have no complaints at all. We just wish we did not have a travel delay -- that is not their problem.
When inquiring about additional car rental insurance I made 3 phone calls to carrier with little or no help. I finally called Square Mouth and all was taken care of.
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.
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.
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,
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.
Happily I have no claim to file. The policy purchase process was easy and the reviews were beneficial in making my decision. I had one question during the poilicy evaluation period that was quickly addressed by customer service to my satisfaction. The only suggestion I have regarding the policy purchase process would be to allow a sort function for the policy type (basic/premium). As I recall the policy reviews could be sorted by issuing company only. Where several different policies are available from the same company, it was cumbersome looking for reviews on a specific policy type. Knowing we had a solid policy for emergency evacuation made traveling to some off the road spots much more comfortable,
We have purchased the same TravelSafe Classic policy for each trip we have taken the past 5 years (3 international trips per year). We are very happy with the policy and customer service and will continue to purchase this policy. The times we have had to make claims, customer service has been very helpful and we experienced no issues with claim reimbursement.
