This plan is an excellent value. It covered everything I felt I needed and at a reasonable cost. It gave me peace of mind during my two-week trip overseas.

AIG Travel Travel Guard Gold
I use Insure My Trip and Travel Guard whenever I take a trip where I feel insurance is necessary. My wife and I are in our 80's, so we are very concerned about making sure we qualify for the existing condition waiver, because if we get sick, it will probably be from a pre-existing condition. However, when I subsequently purchased the air fare for this trip, I forgot to immediately add the cost to the policy, and missed the 15 day purchase requirement. I still added it some 10 days later at a cost of over $400. However, it is my understanding that, because I missed the 15 day purchase requirement, I apparently voided a substantial part of my coverage, particularly the pre-existing condition waiver. And this is after I paid over $3,300 for the trip insurance coverage. This does not seem fair at all to me. I do my best to follow the rules, but void my coverage for a 10 day mistake. I believe that this is an overly restrictive provision. I have just purchased another travel insurance policy for a trip in 2019, but feel that these types of requirements are put in place as a means of denying coverage, which I do not think is fair.

I have used this plan before in which I did have to file a claim. They were prompt and professional. This time I did not have to file a claim but felt secure using them again.

C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector
I was so surprised at how quickly and efficiently they processed my claim. The process was clear and relatively easy (since I was able to print out my credit card statements, and we'd saved our boarding passes from the changed flight) and their turnaround was only about 2 days. I am very impressed, and would definitely recommend this policy and this company.

AXA Assistance USA Silver
Your company's customer service STINKS!!!!!!! After devastating floods on Kauai just before our trip began, I called to explore coverage due to a natural disaster (declared so by the Hawaii state governor). All I got were two different reps who did nothing but read from your legal-eeze filled conditions of coverage. They offered nothing in the way of interpretation, or application of the policy to our circumstances. Had we actually needed to file a claim, I would have been strictly on my own, not having any clue as to what would be covered, and what would not. We will NEVER again use AXA for travel insurance. It is throwing money away to think AXA might actually cover any part of expenses incurred due to a natural disaster. (We travel a lot, and do purchase travel insurance regularly. Yes, I did file a claim once, for a medical emergency. Yes, one of your competitors did honor our claim. So, I do know something about the process. Yes, I repeat, your company STINKS!!!!!. As a first step, why don't you hire some phone reps that actually try to help your customers. Anybody can read your legal-eeze back over the phone. What is needed is some help with LOGICAL and PRACTICAL interpretation of your policies based on local conditions.)

    Thank you very much for taking time to submit your review to share with your fellow travelers. As an online platform, our “Ratings and Reviews” allows our customers to share their personal experiences with our insurance providers, but it also offers our providers an opportunity to better explain their policies. In reply to your comments, AXA Assistance USA reviewed your calls. At the time of your call, the Hawaiian State government had not yet declared the devastating floods a natural disaster. You had also indicated that your flights were not impacted and your resort was open and operational. You expressed concern that you would be spending your vacation in your hotel room instead of traveling around the island, so you wanted to explore canceling your trip under Trip Cancellation.

    In any travel insurance plan, Trip Cancellation reimburses only if it’s a covered reason as listed in the policy. Covered Reasons vary from plan to plan. With respect to natural disasters, your Trip Cancellation coverage was limited to the following covered reasons:

    “...(b) Inclement weather, Natural Disasters, Terrorist Attacks, or mechanical breakdown of the common carrier which results in the complete cessation of travel services at the point of departure or destination for at least 24 consecutive hours.

    (c) Natural Disaster or documented man-made disaster at the point of departure or Your destination which renders Your primary residence or the accommodations at Your destination uninhabitable...”

    Since you called the company 3 days prior to your departure date when your flights were still flying and your resort was still open, there was no basis for a Trip Cancellation claim. We understand that this is never what a customer wants to hear, so the representatives went through the plan to explain the reasons that might apply if your flights were canceled or the resort closed as you got closer to your departure date.

    In the future, you may wish to call us for assistance prior to purchasing a policy. You could have purchased Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) which is an optional benefit offering the opportunity to cancel your travel plans for reasons other than those listed as “covered reasons” on a policy. CFAR gives you greater flexibility and freedom when making decisions about your travel reservations. CFAR is offered as an add-on benefit if you meet certain criteria. Under an AXA Platinum plan, CFAR would reimburse you for 75% of your prepaid, non-refundable travel expenses as long as you met the coverage conditions.

    We are sorry to hear that your interaction with AXA was not what you were expecting, but it's important for travelers to understand the importance of the covered reasons listed in all travel insurance plans. Perhaps you will give us an opportunity in the future to insure your trips.

Thankfully I didn't need to file a claim. It does give you peace of mind in the event something happens before you take your trip, and what you paid towards the trip which typically is nonrefundable or something possibly happens during the trip, that you are covered.
