International Medical Group iTravelInsured LX
We paid for Cancel for Any Reason coverage for a trip in early September to Scotland and Ireland that included our small group tour of Ireland and our nonrefundable airfare between Scotland and Ireland. When the Royal Tattoo was canceled due to Covid, we cancelled the airfare we paid for with American miles to allow other American customers access to those seats, but these airfares weren't part of our coverage. We hoped to still be able to fly to Ireland and do the tour. When we were within two to 3 weeks of our trip and Ireland still required a 2 week self quarantine because of Covid, we tried to cancel our small group tour. The tour company refused to give us a refund, but thankfully Viator did. In the end, we only filed a claim for the $200 Ryanair airfare from Scotland to Ireland which was nonrefundable. The claims department refused our claim despite our Cancel for Any Reason coverage because they said we were required to file the entire claim within 20 days of cancelling our airfare to and from Scotland/Ireland. I explained that we used miles for that and cancelled the initial flights hoping to rebook a flight to and from Ireland with miles if Ireland didn't have a quarantine at the time of our tour. They didn't care. We have bought insurance from them 3 times in the past 2 years. I asked them how it was good business to refuse a $150 claim that was the result of Covid uncertainty and lose a good customer. Again, they didn't care. We will never buy an iTravel policy again from IMG.

Although it took 7 months, I finally received my trip interruption insurance claim from C&F. Since I purchased the policy through Insure My Trip, I reached out to them, 3 months in, to try to push C&F to respond to my claim. Insure My Trip was very helpful in clarifying the hold up and with further help from my travel agency, Pavlus, I was finally able to get the compensation I was due.

Claims take 8 to 10 weeks for the initial review and then they will get back to you if they need more information. I shudder to think if their was a real emergency and you needed them ASAP. Actual reimbursement time was less than 4 weeks so review updated.

International Medical Group iTravelInsured SE
Overall, I was sort-of satisfied with this policy; most of the expenses we incurred as a result of sickness while traveling were reimbursed promptly, but unexpectedly not all.

After checking in for a transatlantic flight at the end of our long weekend in Barcelona in December, I became so sick I could not (didn't want to - and nor would the airline have wanted me to) board the aircraft; on the advice of airport medical services I was hospitalized. After many hours and many tests, I was cleared to travel 48 hours later. The Sickness section of this policy covered the ambulance, all direct medical expenses and two hotel overnights for recovery. The Trip Interruption section covered the cost of new airline tickets. Surprisingly, though, none of the other approximately $320 expenses resulting from my sickness (e.g. taxi from hospital to hotel, meals, replacement airport bus tickets, additional parking fee for overtime days at US airport, basic clothing (our baggage had been checked and could not be retrieved quickly) - none of which were pre-paid) were covered.

We're experienced and very moderate travelers. $320 is not a big deal for two adults for two days. Nevertheless, I wanted to check whether this omission was accidental or intentional. If intentional, it is something that a traveling family (more people, possibly more time) should note. After checking with the insurance carrier I'm satisfied that they ruled correctly in accordance with their policies (a data breach and Covid-19 slowed down the review). Nevertheless, my common sense view is that these were unavoidable costs that most people would consider to be the result of Sickness, Trip Delay or Trip Interruption and thus covered.

The Bottom line - read the fine print of any carrier's policy VERY CAREFULLY to see if it meets your common sense expectation of coverage if an unexpected event occurs. You might be surprised. Would I use them again or recommend them? Maybe yes, but with my eyes wide open to the unanticipated hole in coverage.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Claim: 59572

My plan was purchased in 10/27/2019, months before COVID. This company looks hard to find an excuse to not honor trip cancellation, despite claims of "standard in the industry" or that they "regret" not fulfilling their moral obligations to honor the contract. It is my strong opinion that they have small print used to deny payments for legitimate claims, that this company does not deserve your trust or business. Nationwide certainly will never have my business.

The natural disaster is COVID. Travel to Europe from the U.S. is not allowed, as the entire U.S. is being quarantined from the EU. The hotel accommodations in Italy are not habitable by any U.S. citizen.

Additionally, I am a hospital worker potentially exposed to COVID patients daily. I must quarantine 14 days before allowing myself come in close contact to unsuspecting travelers, because it is morally correct. It is not possible to actually travel.

I do not think that I would be allowed to stay at my hotel if I were possibly contagious, if I were allowed to travel to Europe! Regardless,

I was reimbursed for most of my travel (airfare) by the airlines, so I was not even expecting to be reimbursed for the entire amount of my coverage, only a portion of the coverage for which I paid. Unlike other reputable businesses, this company does not warrant your business, in my opinion.

I was injured on my trip (March 7, 2020) and filed a claim immediately (March 9, 2020). C&F was very helpful in arranging repatriation so that I could return home for orthopedic surgery. In order to get home, they said I had to pay for the flights and was told to submit the claim, which I did timely. I still have not been reimbursed for the trip interruption claim. I have called and emailed numerous times. When I call, I'm on hold for at least 45 minutes.I really have been given the runaround. When requested, I submitted any follow-up documentation immediately. My claims analyst does not email or answer my calls. Last thing I was told was that my claim is in final payment review but it's been 5 weeks since I was told that for the 2nd time. I'm at my wits end with this company. I know that COVID delayed things but I filed my claim early in the COVID crises and my claims has nothing to do with COVID. I hope someone from Insure My Trip can help with this claim. I would not buy insurance from this company again.
UPDATE: My claim was finally paid but it took a lot of effort. After numerous calls and several months, a supervisor finally contacted me and the claim issue was resolved. There was one minor issue holding up the claim and if they had contacted me initially, it would have been easily resolved. I had sent them the correct documentation but they had a question and could have easily emailed or called me.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
We booked a trip to London on at the end of January for travel in mid-June. We purchased this policy on January 31, when covid-19 had yet to be named or determined to be a pandemic . Due to the UK's continued shutdown through the spring and the UK's 14 day mandatory quarantine policy, Delta cancelled our flight in late May. We filed a claim with Delta, who fully refunded our air travel. We filed a claim with Nationwide to recover our non-fundable deposit on the London flat that we made in January. The claim was denied since covid-19 was not a named peril in the policy (well it was January 2020 with less than a handful of cases in the US) and the policy supposedly did not cover cancellation by the airline. If we couldn't fly to London, how were we going to get there!? We had a Travelex travel insurance policy 10 years ago that completely reimbursed us for a cruise that we were unable to get to because Delta cancelled our flight due to a massive east coast Christmas snow storm. I don't believe a snow storm was a peril listed in the policy. I will never buy another Nationwide travel insurance policy and would not recommend to others. They are definitely NOT on you side.
