The trip included a
Travelex Travel Select
I was shocked to find that when I wanted to increase the trip cost from $500 to $600, the extra premium would be $47. Obviously it didn't pay to increase the trip cost.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. Comprehensive policies consist of trip cost brackets. The first trip cost bracket on the Travelex Travel Select plan is between $0-$500. You pay a premium based on being in that bracket. When increasing the trip cost between $501-$1,000, your policy will enter into a new price bracket. There is an increase in premium for entering the bracket.

    If you purchase a policy online or over the phone, we advise that you receive a quote based on your estimated total trip cost. In doing this, you will know what the total premium of the policy will be once your trip is finalized. However, when you purchase the plan, insure the current trip cost, and then add subsequent trip payments onto the policy.

    You have the right to insure a trip cost that is lower than the actual trip cost. However, by not insuring the full cost of the trip, you may lose out of benefits such as the pre-existing conditions waiver.

    If you have any questions regarding the information provided in this reply, please call InsureMyTrip at 800-487-4722. We would be happy to assist you.

The trip included a
AXA Assistance USA Gold
Very few reviews have gone through the claims experience, but I am one who has. My claim was paid in full. It took approximately 90 days to resolve, but the delay was mostly mine in providing a "cancellation letter" from the airline that the insurer would accept. Communication could have been better. No response to email inquiry. The day I called for a status update, I was told only to be patient. That very day, I received their check in the mail.

The plan gave us a sense of peace knowing if something came up we were covered. Our son told us about it and helped us set it up since we traveled together. It was an awesome trip!

The trip included a
AXA Assistance USA Gold
The airline lost our luggage, and when I called a representative, they said I had to wait 24 hours to buy any basic needs, which was quite frustrating. Also, any claims of lost baggage required a sales slip for all items. Why would I have a sales slip from five years ago? Representative refused to put any pressure on airline to locate luggage.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that your luggage was delayed during the trip. The AXA Assistance USA Gold plan requires a 24 hour delay for the Baggage Delay benefit. The Baggage Delay benefit provides reimbursement for the purchase of necessary personal effects, up to the benefit limits set forth in the policy. All travel insurance providers require receipts of the necessary personal effects purchased as a result of the delay.

    InsureMyTrip offers plans from different travel insurance providers which require a 12 hour delay for the Baggage Delay benefit. In the future, please consider calling InsureMyTrip prior to purchasing so that we can help you find a policy that best fits your needs and/or explain policy benefits. Our representatives are available 7 days a week by calling 800-487-4722.

    We are sorry to hear that your baggage was lost. The AXA Assistance USA Gold Policy requires that the baggage is delayed for a full 24 hours before the Baggage Delay benefit can be utilized. In the event that the airline is not able to recover your lost luggage, the policy does allow for a claim under the Baggage/Personal Effects benefit without receipts and reads as follows: For items over .00 in value which have been lost or stolen, you must provide documentation of the original purchase price. If the original receipt is not available, benefits will be calculated based upon the Actual Cash Value (cost less proper deduction for depreciation value) at the time of loss. Please accept our apology if this was not explained clearly by the representative and caused confusion. Because we are not directly affiliated with the airline, we are limited in what we can do in order to expedite locating your luggage.

    I had the same thing happen to me as well and it was extremely frustrating. I was eventually paid by the airline, but the insurance that I had purchased never would approve the claim. Once the airlines had reimbursed my loss, I dropped the issue and did not pursue anything with the insurance. It taught me a valuable lesson. 1. I make sure I read the fine print on baggage coverage. 2. I take photos of my baggage at the ticket counter as it's being laid on the conveyer belt, and usually I'll include a picture of the Airline agent as well. 3. I have a photo shot of my belongings in that suitcase.
    It may sound like a lot of work, but it really isn't. But it’s the only action I know I can take to protect myself. When your bag is either missing, stolen or damaged, they’re first to point the finger at someone else and thus the games begin. You’ll spend a lot of your time explaining the same story over and over to different people throughout the whole process.
    It took me nearly 27 days to get the airliner to send me a check to replace the items including the suitcase. Some people thought that was quick and others thought that it was really slow. I really do not know the correct answer.
    I now get insurance on my trips, but I carefully read the details of the insurance policy and if I have a question, I will usually write an email to have someone explain it to me. If I am unable too, I move on to another insurance company. I hope this helps others.

I had occasion to file a claim with Travelex previously, and that was the reason we chose them again for coverage. They were fast and easy to work with through the claims process.
