Generali Global Assistance Preferred

If you are looking for a travel insurance plan that offers more coverage and higher benefit limits—particularly in terms of medical benefits—than a basic plan, but at a lower price point than a high-end program, the Preferred plan from Generali Global Assistance could be your best bet.

This popular plan includes all of the same coverages as the Standard plan, plus specific coverages for sporting equipment and sporting equipment delay—ideal for skiers, golfers, snorkelers and more, as well as Accidental Death & Dismemberment – Travel Accident if you are injured in an accident while on your trip. The plan also boasts higher benefit limits on coverages compared to what is available with the Standard plan, such as trip interruption up to 150% of the total trip cost insured; $1500 of Baggage protection per plan holder; and $150,000 of medical and dental per plan holder.

In addition, if you purchase the Preferred plan prior to or within 24 hours of your final trip payment, you can get coverage for financial insolvency, meaning the plan can reimburse you in case you are forced to cancel or interrupt your trip if one of your travel suppliers (airline, cruise line or tour operator) discontinues operations due to insolvency, with or without filing bankruptcy.

Last, but not least, this plan comes with a variety of services designed to help you get the most from your vacation and give you a little extra peace of mind. For example, On Demand Medical Care can instantly connect you with a network of physicians for information, advice, and treatment through a service called Teladoc. And with No Out-of-Pocket Medical, you can receive payment reimbursement up to $1,000 for acute treatments from a trusted provider if you get sick or injured while traveling. Please note that Teladoc services may not be available in all states and international services may be limited.

On June 14 I booked a one-way ticket to return to my home Country the United States after my visit to Argentina, paid $1,672. The departure date was scheduled for Tuesday June 29. Unfortunately, a day before the trip I received a cancelation from American Airlines, which did not give me the option to rebook/reschedule the flight at least until August 3 (a months later!). After several communications with the airline nobody was able to assign me a new flight to return to the US at least until August 3. Many customer services agents suggested me to verify the availability in, and immediately book a new ticket if something became available, not waiting to call back the call center as the availability could change in the meanwhile. This is what I did, I identified an available seat and paid for a totally new air ticket $3,376. Flying the day before, on June 28. Once at home, I filed a claim with Generali, under the 'Trip Interruption Benefit', asking the Travel Insurance Company to cover ONLY the price difference between the two tickets (the original -canceled- flight has been refunded by the Airline). This was under the general understanding that the Airline was not able to accommodate me in one of your airplanes back to US. The Insurance Company asked me to request the Airline the 'reason of the flight cancelation'. I gathered that information and shared with the Claims Representative from Generali, having back a nasty surprise: they have rejected the claim with the following reason: 'According to the documentation provided, the flight was canceled due to Airline schedule change...' So, basically, if the Airline has Logistics issues and have to cancel your flight, you will NOT be covered by Generali Global Assistance. This is terrible, and real! The fine print on their policy is terrible. Do not buy from them, I've a clear case in which they have not covered a basic stuff. I'm planning to engage a lawyer and fight for my rights! This is a typical case of Travel Insurance abuse! Claim Number: 21027198-01 Policy Number: 21166W2282
Even though we did not have to use this plan, we got it for piece of mind in case we needed to use it. It was a reasonable price for a just in case scenario. Would purchase again.
