Nationwide Mutual Insurance
Overall, I was very impressed and please with my experience with TruTravel. I would happily purchase travel insurance through them again in the future.
My family and I had our vacation delayed a full day, due to our transatlantic flight being cancelled. When we returned home, I submitted a claim for prepaid expenses lost (one day of our vacation rental and pre-purchased train tickets) and expenses incurred due to the delay (food costs and replacement train tickets). The cost of our hotel stay was covered by the airline. I had questions several times throughout the claims process, and every time I called TruTravel, the representative I spoke to was kind, helpful, and seemed genuinely interested in assisting me.
Part of our claim - the pre-purchased train tickets - was originally denied because the train company said the tickets could've been changed up until the day before we were to use them. However, because our flight was cancelled after midnight European time, we were not actually able to change them. I could not get proof of exactly what time the flight was cancelled from the airline, so I submitted a re-review to TruTravel explaining the situation (without any additional evidence). They agreed and reimbursed us for the tickets. I was very impressed that TruTravel could look beyond the hard evidence and understand on a logical level why the reasoning behind their initial denial was inaccurate.
My only issue with TruTravel is that I wish they would've communicated better about when they made their decision on the claim and what it was. I found out because I reached out to them - otherwise, I think I would've had to wait for the claim check in the mail. I did ask, in the re-review, that they contact me via e-mail with their decision, and that's exactly what they did, so I do appreciate them honoring that request.
