It took a while to get them on the phone but once I did they were very responsive. I also received a call back the following day which was nice. I can't say yet how the complete experience is since my claim is still pending but hopefully all will go well. I will be happy to follow up once my claim is finalized.
The policy did not cover the incident I called about but the representative was courteous and helpful. She connected me quickly to an attorney who provided me with information that was helpful and enabled me to relax and enjoy the rest of my trip.
We moved the date of our trip back a couple of weeks so I had to contact TravelSafe and have them adjust our policy dates of coverage. Was done easily and no issues. Customer service was good experience. We thankfully didn't have to file a claim while on this trip, but good to know we had Insurance just in case.
I am still waiting for the paperwork to come to my home so that I might receive reimbursement for the work done in Ecuador; in the meanwhile, I am dealing with the output of $440 expense in dental fees.........Why is it taking so long to get the claim forms to me?
Semi timely too many follow ups were necessary
I did get a quick response when calling about the official policy document ( I was told to download it ), I thought it was to be mailed. The other question are not applicable because I didn't need to file a claim.
Unfortunately a passport did not arrive for our son and we lost several thousand dollars on our trip and did not get to spend Christmas together. The insurance coverage we had did not cover that and such an event was never anticipated. Although everyone was very nice,the vacation experience turned out to be a disappointment for us.
Our son was sick and we needed to call the nurse hotline. She was extremely helpful and resassuring.
We actually had multiple claims, one for delayed luggage (three people) and one for an illness (my son suffered sunstroke). Filing the claims online was extremely easy and phone support was very helpful as we were having trouble with the airline getting the proper documentation. The website claim status feature was especially useful so we always new the progress of our claims. We would highly recommend TravelSafe and have already purchased another TravelSafe policy for our next vacation. Hopefully we won't have to file any claims this time!
Travel Safe required an immense amount of documentation in support of the claims I filed (copies of passports showing entry and exit stamps for the country we visited, air receipts, lodging receipts, etc). All of this could be "technically" reasonable and necessary, but we'll see how Travel Safe responds.
For example, they wanted bank or credit card receipts as proof that I paid for a policy with them. Instead, I sent them my receipt from Squaremouth. It should serve the same purpose. Will they accept it...I don't know! We'll see. As a consumer, I was ultimately left with the impression that Travel safe was giving themselves any/all possible pretexts to deny a claim or hassle you, if they so choose. We'll see if they do that. I hope not. I sent them pretty exhaustive and complete claims (no jokes - it took me HOURS to compile the photocopies they requested), And, my claim is SMALL - a $40 (USD) doctors visit, and a lost luggage claim for which they are only a secondary payee, after the airline pays out.
Squaremouth should provide onsite information about how often or not your customers have been able to successfully file claims with an insurer, when filing a claim has been needed. That info seems almost as important as the price of the policy itself, and FYI, I use Squaremouth for all my travel insurance policy purchases.
I had to change my departure and return dates and contacted TravelSafe to modify my policy. Even though it was weeks before the departure date, TravelSafe refused to change the coverage or refund the premium. They simply confiscated my money for nothing.
