C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector Lite
The airline mislaid my suitcase for 50 hrs.
Representative I spoke to at C&F Travel Insurance was extremely polite and very helpful.
I will not hesitate to use them again.
A truly great service.

You don’t want to have to use travel insurance - - but if you do need it, you are happy to have it. Over the years I have insured a dozen or so trips and only one claim - I am happy with all results and will insure the next trip - my rule of thumb is if I have $5,000 of cost that is fixed and not refundable - I insure.

Travelex Travel Select
Overall, I'm pleased with this Cancel for Any Reason policy. I canceled the trip when I didn't receive my passport in time, per the policy instructions.

However, in order to get the claim closed and paid I had to make several phone calls to Travelex. I uploaded the claims form and receipts as required. I didn't hear anything for two weeks, so I called and was told they only had the airline receipts and for me to please send them the claims form. She said someone would be in touch to confirm its receipt.

I wondered why no one had called to tell me there was a problem. I uploaded the claims form a second time and another two weeks went by without anyone contacting me.

I called again to ask about payment status. I spoke with an agent who said the airline ticket receipt didn't include cancellation terms or the form of payment. I told her it did indeed include those things. She reviewed the receipt I'd sent and confirmed it contained the necessary information. She said she didn't know why the adjuster hadn't closed out the claim or why no one had been in touch. She also said they had received my claims form the first time it was sent and she didn't know why I was asked to send it a second time. About a week later I received payment in the amount I'd expected.

This was more hassle than it should have been. It seems the adjuster didn't review the submitted documents closely, which resulted in payment being made by 4-5 weeks, and that the initial agent I spoke with didn't review the file close enough before telling me to submit the claim form again. The TravelEx team needs to be more diligent.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Trip cancellation, interruption and delay are very specific per each policy. Be sure to read the fine print as to when they take in effect so as not to be disappointed later when a claim is not paid. Sadly, Nationwide would not cover our trip delay expenses because the delay was not 6 hours or more.

    Travelers will find that every Comprehensive plan makes basic trip cancellation coverage available that will extend coverage for the cancellation of a trip for specific unforeseen, covered reasons. Commonly, travel insurance plans, such as the Nationwide Essential plan, will cover reasons such as:

    The unexpected death, illness, or injury of you and/or a traveling companion that deems you unfit to travel, by order of a licensed physician;
    The hospitalization or death of a non-traveling family member;
    Weather or common carrier related issues that causes your common carrier to cease operations for 24 hours;
    Unforeseen natural disasters at home or the destination; and
    A legal obligation, such as being called for jury duty or to appear as a witness in court. However, we recommend that you review the covered reasons in your certificate since they do vary from plan to plan.

    Travel Delay under the Nationwide Essential plan does reimburse the traveler for your incurred expenses but only after a six hour delay for a
    Hazard which means:
    "a) Any delay of a Common Carrier (including Inclement Weather).
    b) Any delay by a traffic accident en route to a departure, in which You or a Traveling Companion is not directly involved.
    c) Any delay due to lost or stolen passports, travel documents or money, quarantine, hijacking, unannounced Strike,
    natural disaster, civil commotion or riot.
    d) A closed roadway causing cessation of travel to the destination of the Covered Trip (substantiated by the department of transportation, state police, etc.)"

    InsureMyTrip encourages all customers to the certificate which is attached to each quote prior to purchasing.

The trip included a
cruise
Travelex Travel Select
The "unthinkable" happened in England as I stepped off a train an hour before leaving for a Baltic cruise. I fractured my femur and, as a result, was transported to Ashford, England, where I had surgery the next day, plus an 8-day hospital stay. We had purchased a Travelex Select policy and my husband promptly informed the company when we arrived in the ER. The hospital accepted our proof of coverage without hesitation or demand of an up-front payment of any kind.

When I was medically fit to travel, the evacuation part of the policy kicked in. On Call Int'l., arranged for an very competent and caring R.N. to fly to England to escort us home. On Call made all of the air and driver arrangements from the hospital to Gatwick to home.

Regarding the claims process: I filed a claim two weeks after arriving home for the hospital bill and the nonrefundable trip expenses. The response was slow but finally the claim was paid in full, per the policy. The hospital system also was patient, realizing that it takes time to collect on insurance.

Observations:

1. My husband's lodging, meals, and transportation expense was classified under the "Trip Delay" portion of the policy with a limit of $750, with the remainder out-of-pocket to us. Most trip insurance policies seem to have a similarly low limit.

2. There was no explanation why the entire hospital bill wasn't paid at first. I asked Insuremytrip.com for advice. They appointed a claims advocate who quickly resolved the issue.

3. Having a policy with primary medical coverage, instead of secondary, was essential to avoid further delay and hassles.

In the end, we were happy with both the Travelex Select policy and also with InsuremyTrip.com

    Comprehensive plans may appear "pricey" since premiums are generally based on the traveler's age, trip cost and length of trip. However, we do offer a wide range of products. In the future, you may wish to call us at (800) 487-4722 for assistance in quoting and purchasing a policy.
