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.

Thanks InsureMyTrip for your advice on the Travelex Travel Basic plan. This plan is just what I wanted and needed as a senior citizen on Medicare. I especially like the primary insurance aspect of the plan that provides a no hassle ingredient. I will try to purchase this plan again if offered.

We did not have to use it but it is good to know you have a plan in place. Remember to carry a copy of the plan with you in your travels so you have all the information you should the need arise.

This plan did not require processing the claim through our personal health insurance; thus, we submitted our request for reimbursement of medical expenses incurred on our trip directly to Travelex. Our claim was approved and we eventually received our refund.

During the month that transpired from when I mailed the claim to receipt of a check, I called twice to track status of the claim. I called a week after mailing the paperwork to confirm that it had been received. The claims representative told me that processing would take 3 weeks. I called again at the 3 week mark and was told that a decision would be made by the end of the week. I told the claims representative that I was shopping for travel insurance for two international trips that we plan to make next year and that I was hesitant to use Travelex again due to the extended processing time for claims. Her response was "you can do what you want, but claims processing takes 3 weeks." I was quite taken aback at this response, I have worked in Customer Service and I would never put off a customer as she did.

I might use Travelex again if the price is right and the coverage is appropriate for our needs. I will have to prepare myself, however, for less that professional service from the claims department representatives if need arises to contact them.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. One of the great benefits of purchasing a Travelex product is that they offer primary coverage. Primary coverage means that the travel insurance provider will reimburse without requiring the involvement of primary collectible insurance. We are sorry to learn that you were dissatisfied with the customer service you received from the claims department and length of time it took to process the claim. Generally, travel insurance claims can take up to 4 weeks to complete. However, for customers who feel like the claims process is taking an usually long time, InsureMyTrip can assign a customer advocate to attempt to expedite the claim. Our representatives are available 7 days a week by calling 800-487-4722.
