M.H. Ross Advantage Asset
Before and after I purchased this policy, I called M.H. Ross to find out whether I can make collect calls to the U.S. if I need to contact the insurance company. I also asked whether they have translation service for any claims documents in a foreign language. I was assured that they take collect calls, and documents in Chinese or Korean will be translated by the insurance company. I felt I was in good hands. Unfortunately, I got sick during my trip. When I returned and filed a claim, I learned that a statement is required to be filled out in English by the doctor who treated me when I was in China. I contacted M.H. Ross stating this is not possible as I am no longer in China, have no way to get in touch with that doctor, and the doctor does not speak English. I was told by two different customer service representatives that this statement is only for domestic travelers, and I do not need to have it for my claim. I also double checked with them regarding whether it would be a problem if relevant claim documents are in Chinese. Again, I was told they have translation service and I do not need to worry. Thus, I submitted my claim. One month after the submission, I called customer service to check on the status of my claim. To my surprise, I was told I need to have the doctor’s statement filled out, and all documents in Chinese to be translated by a certified translator. A letter regarding these 2 items was said to be mailed to me. I protested about being misled before and after purchasing this insurance policy, and it would be ridiculous for me to use certified translator whose cost would exceed the claim amount. I have to mention that I contacted two customer service representatives regarding this. The first representative was rude. She always had an attitude for no reason. She cut me off on every sentence I tried to say. When I questioned her rudeness, she said she was being professional, and hung up on me abruptly. The second representative said she would ask a supervisor to call me within 48 business hours. So I waited for one week. No one called. I contacted M.H. Ross again, and was told a supervisor would call me within 1 day. This time, I patiently waited for 2 weeks. No one called me, and no letter stated above was received.
To summarize, I called numerous times, and did the translation on my own. I did get reimbursement for my claim, but it was a long, painful, and exhausting experience, which took more than 3 months. Not to mention how many times I called, left messages, and encountered rude customer service representatives. The lesson learned here is that I will never choose M.H. Ross again. I will stick with Travelex which I have purchased before, and had good experience in filing a claim. If you still want to go with M.H. Ross, I wish you good luck.

No feedback from claim reviewers and slow claims process. Review is even slow when additional information is required and claim is paid.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The representative I spoke with when deciding on a plan was well informed and explained all options very clearly. I was very pleased with the price of the option I chose,
and felt comfortable on my trip with that peace of mind. Thank you!

The trip included a
Travelex Travel Basic
When traveling I have used Travelex for insurance needs many times. The coverage is good, price ok, and they make it easy to file a claim if needed. We had a camera stolen on a trip and were satisfied with the settlement. Mostly, it is just nice to know that coverage is there if needed. Thank you for great service!

Travelex Travel Select
I was able to add coverage later for the air portion of my trip. It was easy, just a phone call to update the coverage once the plans were complete. Fortunately I did not need to use the medical evacuation portion from Tibet.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The majority of the comprehensive polices we offer allow travelers to increase the insured trip cost. In the event you add additional trip expenses after you purchase a policy, you must call us within 10-30 days (policy specific) of adding the additional expenses so we can re-quote your policy and add the additional trip cost onto your existing policy.
