After filing a claim for a cancelled trip, our experience with this company was terrible. We continually had to call them to track the claim and every time they would say we needed to send more paperwork. Some receipts we sent them 4 times. We even had one of the tour operators email us to ask why they kept asking him for the same information. It took about 6 months for us to get about half of our money back. The one good thing I will say is about InsureMyTrip, who stepped in to help us at one point and were great to deal with.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are pleased that you allowed InsureMyTrip to advocate on your behalf. In the future, please reach out to us sooner.

    We are sorry to learn that you were dissatisfied with the claims service. We apologize on behalf of the claims administrator that your claim took an unusually long time to process, and that you were repeatedly asked to provide documentation that had already been submitted. Depending upon the complexity of the claim, and how readily available the claims documentation is, claims processing should take anywhere between 3-8 weeks.

I filed a claim which took 5 months to get paid. I have accepted that the terrorism clause in the plan was worded poorly, and forced me to invoke the "Cancel for Any Reason" benefit of the plan, which only pays 75% of cancellation fees. The terrorism clause was worded such that the U.S. Government has to officially call the event an act terrorism. In Israel, there are things that occur that don't get officially designated by the U.S. State Department as terrorism. The cancellation for terrorism part of the plan was cleverly worded to leave a gap where some terrorist acts are not covered if they don't make the State Department radar. Now for the claim, although I sent in all the proper documentation, they were looking for a specific form of documentation from the airline on the cancellation fee, which was difficult to obtain. Eventually, I did get this resolved, and they did pay the claim.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We appreciate your business, and are pleased to learn that your claim was paid. We apologize on behalf of the claims administrator that your claim took five months to resolve.

    The wording of Trip Cancellation for a Terrorist Attack can be confusing, but the coverage is worded similarly in the majority of plan certificates. In the future, please feel free to call us for clarification. Unfortunately, none of the comprehensive policies on our website cover trip cancellation for the previously referenced events.
    We advise customers concerned about war (declared or undeclared), political or civil unrest to purchase the "Cancel For Any Reason" benefit. There are usually three conditions that must be met to purchase a "Cancel For Any Reason" policy: The policy needs to be purchased within 10-30 days after making the initial trip payment/deposit, the entire pre-paid and non-refundable trip cost needs to be insured, and the covered trip must be canceled more than 2 days prior to the departure date. The majority of "Cancel For Any Reason" policies will reimburse 75% of the trip cost, unless otherwise noted.

    We encourage customers to call InsureMyTrip prior to purchasing travel insurance to ask questions about coverage and receive recommendations based their needs. InsureMyTrip is open 7 days a week at 800-487-4722.

The only downside to a plan like this is the fairly restrictive refund policy if you decide not to keep the coverage.

    Thank you for your review. In general, review periods on travel insurance policies are an industry standard. It may be possible, however, to find an insurance provider that has a longer review period than the typical 10-14 days. For future trips, please call Customer Service at 800-487-4722 for assistance in finding a plan that better meets your needs.

We almost missed our trip by being snowed in at the airport. That would have left me a basket case if not for this travel insurance.

Fortunately, the dive resort in Belize we were going to, strongly recommended trip insurance. Unfortunately, my husband developed a hernia and needed surgery. He would not have been able to participate in the scheduled trip activities. He is a very healthy, active guy. The trip needed to be cancelled for all 5 of the insured travelers. We needed to use travel insurance for the first time ever. The claims administrator was thorough, communicative, and helpful. I thought the reimbursement was very fair, it covered just about everything. They ask for quite a bit of documentation, so be thorough with your paper work. I can't blame them. I would use them again in a heart beat! In fact, I'm booking my next trip and will call InsureMyTrip for coverage, instead of the company the tour operator suggested.

I always recommend third party travel insurance, instead of the cruise line travel insurance, to all my friends. We've never had to use travel insurance, but thankful we've always had it.

Called to discuss what type of coverage I wanted for a winter snowboarding holiday. Service was very helpful, and the policy was sorted out over the phone, with documents emailed to me straight away. Excellent service and will use again.

It was very regretful to cancel my trip to visit my parents in Venezuela; the country's government has made it hard for travel. The only comfort I had was to have our trip reimbursed for different travel dates, hopefully soon in the future. M.H. Ross refunded the trip cost as promised, and in a timely manner. This is a reputable insurance company, and I would recommend them. Hopefully, you won't need to cancel your trip, but rest assured that you are in safe hands if you purchased Cancel For Any Reason coverage.
