The customer service at John Hancock Insurance was the worst I've experienced in over 20 years. While their office took information for a call back (twice) they never returned my calls. It took 3 days to reach an agent to ask questions about their policy and the agent was unwilling or unable to address my questions on the policy. After requesting to speak to a supervisor I was placed into a voicemail box and again no return call.

Fortunately, I was within the 10-day review period so was able to cancel the JH policy. I purchased a policy from April who provided exceptional customer service when I contacted them with the same questions regarding their Choice policy.

I highly recommend you check out policies offered by April vs. JH; April offers similar coverage (same underwriter as JH), are cost competitive, and April provides excellent customer service.

I found the John Hancock Insurance Agency very easy to deal with. There was a last minute change in travel dates and the Agency was very accommodating - no problem with them changing my coverage to the new dates. There has been no need to file a claim, so can't comment on how that would have been handled.

I routinely buy travel insurance but this is only my second claim in 10 years! My luggage was delayed 3 days.

After I emailed the company for directions, submitting the claim online (with scanned docs) was easy, and I was never asked to re-send anything. The only curious thing is, since this was a policy insuring two people, my baggage loss claim was split between my husband and me. Half the claim arrived 2.5 weeks before the other one, which caused initial confusion on my part and a concerned call to the agency. It would have been helpful to receive an explanation with the first check that the second half was on its way - or having two checks in the same envelope would have been a good idea!

Either way, it's done now, and I am happy with the answers I got on the phone while we were in New Zealand as well as with the smoothness of the online claims procedure. I will buy from this company again.

As I did not have to use the plan for any claim I cannot comment further. I believe it had the coverage I needed.

The people I interacted with were not the most friendly but the plan itself was good. I had difficulty trying to figure out what was all covered and how. The representatives were helpful but not friendly.

I would purchase this again, if I travel to the places that I did. I was in the Philippines, Malaysia and China and in these places, some of them remote, I was happy to know that if I needed any medical treatment or if my luggage was lost, I had good insurance for any problems or health issues encountered.

Since I didn't have to use it, it's difficult to adequately assess the value.
