Fortunately I did not have to use any of it and I’m thankful I think the price was a little high, but if I had to use it, I’m sure I would not feel that about the price! I’m going on another trip in June to the Carribean and May look for a plan less expensive

    Thank you for providing your feedback.

    There are 3 main factors that determine premium costs: the cost of the trip, the length of the trip, and the travelers ages. 

    In the future, if you are looking for guidance in selecting a travel insurance plan, please consider contacting our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to assist you.

My parents are in their 90’s. It was very comforting knowing if something happen prior or during my trip I could be home without loosing the money invested in my trip.

One of the people on our trip needed to leave early because of a death in the family. We submitted a claim and once we emailed the documents needed, a check was issued. Everything went very smoothly and the claim process was easy. I would highly recommend this policy.

Generali Global Assistance Standard
I bought flight delay insurance, because when I purchased my ticket, our President had shut down the government, reopened it, and was threatening to shut it down again - this would have possibly, again, shut down the Air Controllers, TSA, and, thus, air flights. So, I wound up buying this. Didn't need it. But was happier having it. Found the service in 2016, when I insured a very expensive trip, and was reimbursed in full when my husband was diagnosed with ALS. It's worth the cost. Good company. Good service. Dependable. Lots of options.

    Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that Generali Global Assistance reimbursed you for the prepaid non-refundable travel expenses for your 2016 trip to Alaska.

    Please keep in mind that in order to be reimbursed under Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption or Travel Delay under a comprehensive plan, it must be due to a covered reason or meet the definition of hazard as listed in your policy. None of the policies listed on our website including your Generali plan would reimburse you if your trip canceled, interrupted or delayed your trip due to a threatened governmental shutdown. Coverage would have only been available with Generali's Premium plan under the optional Cancel for Any Reason rider.

    "TRIP CANCELLATION FOR ANY REASON BENEFIT

    If you purchased this optional coverage, we will reimburse you for a percentage of the prepaid, forfeited, nonrefundable Payments for your Trip, if you and all other Insured traveling with you cancel the Trip for any reason, provided:

    1. your payment for this coverage is received within 24 hours of the date your initial deposit for your Trip is received; and

    2. you are not disabled from travel at the time you pay your premium; and

    3. you have insured 100% of all arrangements booked through the travel supplier from whom you purchased this plan that are subject to cancellation penalties or restrictions; and

    4. the Trip cost per person is no more than 10,000 USD, and the Trip cost per reservation is no more than 20,000 USD; and

    5. you cancel your Trip 48 hours or more Prior to your Scheduled Departure Date.

    Limitations Please be advised this benefit is not available unless all Insured under your coverage cancel the Trip."

    Please feel free to call us at 888-733-6183 if you have any questions.

I had to cancel the trip due to the death of my companion.
The claim was handled quickly and I was updated on the progress.
I will use C&F again.

TripAssure Advantage Asset
The claim was for travel delay due to a cancelled flight on the return trip home. The flight was re-booked for the next day, so had to stay at a hotel and purchase 2 meals (dinner and next day lunch). I never communicated directly with anyone at TripAssure about my claim. When submitting the claim through their website, I selected the option to handle communication electronically (instead of snail mail), filled out the claim form, and attached copies of documentation about cancelled flight and receipts for hotel, meals and parking one extra day. Promptly received a confirmation email that documentation was received. After waiting one month, received another email to reimburse all expenses except the parking (not covered, although "local transportation" would be covered). The reimbursement came in the form of an e-check, linked to the email, to print on my own printer and deposit at my bank.

When the flight was cancelled, a call to "One Call" travel assistance from the airport turned out to be useless to ask if insurance would cover the expenses for travel delay. They did not know anything about the policy and started reading it over the phone. I did not ask "One Call" for any other assistance, so don't know if they would be helpful otherwise.

    Thank you for providing your detailed review of the handling of your claim.
    Although the company does provide 24 hour worldwide travel assistance services, One Call is not authorized to confirm coverage but they can review your policy terms to advise where coverage may be found in the policy.

    We invite you to call us at 800-487-4722, if you have any questions or concerns.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
My husband died suddenly while we were vacationing in Costa Rica. I called GeoBlue and they were MOST helpful every step of the way. They assisted with the transport of the body to the funeral home, made all the arrangements necessary for them. GeoBlue also provided a name at the US Embassy as my contact person who took care of the death certificate and the mortuary passport for the remains to be brought back to the United States. I do not believe I could have done all of this without the help and support of GeoBlue and have recommended them to all my family and friends.
