CSA Travel Protection
We had a travel interruption because my travel companion got sick in the mountains of Peru. She is a healthy person so it was totally unexpected. This is a first time I filed the claim with insurance though I've bought it already for every trip since it covers the trip with different providers and modestly priced. Major disappointment went with Travel Assistance part (Europe Assistance I believe).
They a) did not provide any recommendations/money when the interruption was reported. b) Did not give the payment warranty letter to the doctor though he filed the necessary documents in English immediately and was already associated with the insurance group, licensed and most outrageous-
c) they changed our previous flight reservation in such a way that it was much worse for us without the approval from our side. No e-mail confirmation , no adequate help - nothing just phone calls/messages to my cell phone with USA number.( they could not be returned immediately because of international connection problems). What assumed to be a toll free calls from Peru of course had International Roaming charges. Fortunately we recovered money spent on the phone through the claim process and LAN airline assisted us to get the flight we need, but we'd not be in that situation if Europe Assistance did not cancel our reservation on the first place.
Contrary to that awful experience in Pery the claim process by CSA was fast and efficient. After we submitted all necessary papers (very long list), we received checks with no additional problems. Still in the process of recovering medical expenses.
