Generali Global Assistance Preferred
I am very happy to say that although it took a while for resolution to my claim, I did get a completely fair and just solution to my claim. I do understand with the Covid pandemic that delays are not unusual and understandable but nonetheless great customer service revolves on addressing consumer concerns which definitely was done. I would recommend both InsureMyTrip and Generali Global Assistance Insurance wholeheartedly and not hesitate to tell my family and friends this and look forward to using again once worldwidetravel becomes more available and safe. Thanks again for listening and acting positively on my claim.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare
We had to make a claim on our plan, and the process was fantastic. I would 100% buy insurance from Birkshire-Hathaway Travel Protection Again.

We were scheduled to spend Christmas and New Years of 2019/2020 in Europe. We'd bought our airline tickets on miles, so initially didn't plan to even purchase insurance. But, then just a couple weeks before departure, I thought, "Well, stuff happens at the holidays and a lot of our accommodations are non-refundable, so maybe I should get a plan."

2-days before departure, one of our family members had an unexpected medical emergency that prevented us from going on the trip, and required emergent surgery.

I contacted BHTP to let them know we were going to have to cancel, and make sure I "read all the fine print" about my responsibilities related to cancellation. The fine print was reasonable, essentially stating that I had to promptly notify all the trip providers that I was canceling, and obtain whatever refund I could.

I did this, by email whenever possible for the purposes of easy documentation, and submitted my initial claim with BHTP.

I then sort of let things slide for a while. Canceling the trip was emotionally stressful, compounded when COVID came a couple of months later and we had to delay the "replacement' trip indefinitely. Our BHTP rep let me know that I had 1-year from the date of the initial claim to finish submitting documentation, and so I took my time.


Finally, last month (November of 2020) I realized I'd been procrastinating for too long and had better act. I collected all the required documentation. Because our trip was booked independently, we had over 10 individual items that we were claiming reimbursement for. AirBnbs, VRBO's, food and city tours, an EasyJet flight and train tickets, and a short-term rental booked direct with a local company.

When I gathered everything together and put it in a PDF, there were over 90-pages of documentation (receipts, cancellation emails, documentation of the refunds we were able to obtain, credit card statements and more) in addition to our actual claim form.

I summarized the charges in an excel sheet, to make life easier for the claims adjuster, and then sent it off.

I fully expected some back and forth, requests for additional documentation or attempts to refuse our claim on some technicality that I'd missed in the fine print.

I got none of that. This morning, about 3-weeks after submitting our final claim form and documentation, I got a notification that the full amount of our claim (Just under $6k) was sent to my Paypal account.

I would 100% purchase trip insurance from BHTP again, in a second. My interactions with customer service reps were pleasant and helpful, their claim process was not burdensome, and ultimately, our claim was paid promptly and without issue.

International Medical Group iTravelInsured LX
Purchased this plan because it would cover preexisting conditions. Had to cancel my March cruise on Doctors orders not to travel after change in my medical condition. I have been fighting with this insurance company for nine months and the still have not payed my claim. The keep losing my Medical record documents that the doctors office send them and they are asking for records for 60 days prior to when the insurance was purchased even though my Doctor sent them a note that there are no medical records for that period because my health was good then. They say they cannot reach my doctors office on the phone when my Doctors office says they have not called even thought the doctors office has been waiting for there call. I would never recommend IMG iTravelInsured or use them again.

C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector
Its been a month since I submitted my claim, no response by email and no call back when I entered the virtual que.I realize they are busy currently, but some kind of response to any of my email and submissions over 30 days seems reasonable.

Update:
after 2 months, I did get an email asking for proof of the refunds I was able to get on my own of the total trip cost. I submitted that the same day.
after 5 months, the insurance company somehow got my airline tickets refunded by the airline which was nice since they were supposedly non refundable. They never communicated with me about it, just got the credit from the airline.
After 6 months, I still have a small deposit I had claimed and should be paid but I've heard no communication from the insurance company despite repeated attempts on my part for contact.
Additional update: their web site had changed several times and I finally found an update on my case there which shows the claim was "closed" 2 months ago. With no communication to me nor any response to the multiple emails I have been sending in the meantime.
I will certainly NOT recommend this company.
Final update: with the assistance of insure my trip, I finally got my claim paid. The lack of communication from the insurance company made for a very frustrating and time consuming process. I'm very pleased that Insure my trip stepped-up and helped me.

It's been FIVE MONTHS since I filed my claim and...nothing. Every time I call, they say they're just about to look at it. They they promise the analyst will call me back. Then...nothing.

Travel insurance only works if the company responds when you need them to. This is not a company you can count on.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Nationwide is not on your side. I booked multiple trips and purchased multiple insurance plans with Nationwide. They failed every time. They acted poorly right out of the gate - starting with not returning calls to not paying a very small claim. I worked hard to minimize any losses even though I had insurance (or so I thought). My insurance cost $218 and my claim was a mere $283. I even emailed the CEO and never heard back. Apparently their poor way of treating people starts at the top. I was shocked at how devious and cheap they were. I have used other companies that charged more but settled claims quickly, fairly and honestly. Do yourself a favor and shop elsewhere. I do like InsureMyTrip - they did try to act on my behalf.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    We are sorry to hear that you were unable to travel. Upon learning that your claim was deemed unpayable, we reached out to you about Nationwide making an exception to cancel the policy for a refund of premium. Nationwide needs additional information in order to determine if you meet the guidelines for a successful exception. Please contact us at 800-487-4722 for further information.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare
Purchased the Exact Care plan for a recent trip to Mexico during hurricane season. On our departure day a named tropical storm hit us and flight was cancelled. We incurred another night stay at a hotel, as well as food cost. Saved all my receipts of expensive incurred and email communication from airline confirming cancellation, and submitted it with my claim. Claim was processed way sooner than company originally stated and my full claim was approved. Payment was received less than 24 hours after claim was approved. Will definitely purchase trip insurance from Berkshire Hathaway again. They will be my go to travel insurance company from now on.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Universal Cruise
I have purchased this plan two years in a row for cruises and have not made a claim. Because of Covid my cruise was cancelled this year 190 days in advance and I reached out to InsureMyTrip.com and they facilitated a refund which I was not expecting to happen. Thanks to Nationwide and InsureMyTrip.com for great customer service during these unprecedented times.

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.
