I had a bad experience of not “reading the fine print” and I had a weather hazard event that caused disruption in my trip and my claim was denied because I did not read the fine line of how those events are categorized. I felt it was useless policy and didn’t help me at all when I needed it.

This gave me great peace of mind.!I had a gap in my regular health coverage that coincided with my trip. Being able to purchase travel insurance meant I didn’t have to worry. Thankfully there was no need to use it, but I was glad for the peace of mind it gave!

C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector Plus
Oh where to begin with this review. I purchased this policy w C&F Travel Insured because it had the cancel for any reason option-the main reason for paying a hefty premium but a necessity I required. Long and short of it, I did use the cancel for any reason for canceling my covered trip. Long delay for any resolution after submitting all required receipts and forms and evidence. 3 calls back and forth with C&F customer service and no response back and 6 months passed since initial claim!! Yes you read that correct-SIX months. I had to contact my state’s Department of Banking and Insurance and I filed a claim against C&F. Low and behold 7 days thereafter...my claim was paid! Why did it have to escalate to this C&F?? Why the terrible customer service? Why the extended delays? Why the NO communication C&F? Even though my claim was eventually paid, I will be sure to NEVER again use C&F due to these circumstances. Thank you to my state’s Department of Banking and Insurance for advocating for a resident and helping a paying customer obtain his rightful compensation!

Travelex Travel Basic
Excellent service and plan. I purchased this policy for a two week long trip. Unfortunately, during the trip, a non-traveling family member passed away and I had to cut the trip short. When I filed a claim, I provided supporting documentation (including death certificate) and was reimbursed for the full amount of the trip that I missed due to returning home early for the funeral services. Very satisfied.

I had to cut our trip short due to work reasons. They refunded my money quickly after I sent in the documents they asked for.

International Medical Group iTravelInsured SE
This company is inflexible and ridiculous with the documentation they require. I supplied to them the documentation from the real estate company showing that we had cancelled our rental with them. The receipt showed what we initially paid along with the fee and the last 4 digits of our credit card number. This was not acceptable. The insurance company said they must have the bill from the credit card company itself. I supplied this. The insurance company then wanted a copy of the cancellation policy which I had already sent. I sent it again along with a copy from the credit card company showing the 90% refund I had received. This time the credit card company receipt was not enough. This time they wanted the receipt from the real estate company. I supplied this. All of this took two months of back and forth emails and phone calls. More than once I called and left a message for the agent assigned to our claim. Not one time did she return the call. A partial reimbursement check finally arrived. It was written out with my last name misspelled. This took 2 calls and 2 emails and another 2 months to sort out. I began the claim in May and finally deposited a check in mid October for a straight forward under $400 request.

I had within the last year made a claim with a different travel insurer (AIG) after years of hassle free travel. At the time I found the process arduous; however, I can now compare two companies and their different approaches. The AIG claim agent gave me his direct line. He always called me back and promptly. There were some extenuating circumstances that made it impossible to supply the normal types of medical documentation and police reports due to being in third world countries. The documentation I was able to supply was accepted. The claim agent was willing to work with me and together we found a way to provide both what the insurance company needed and what was available to me.

The difference in service between these two companies was dramatic. I can not speak for other companies but I will never use iTravelinsured again.

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.

C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector Plus
Did I purchase good coverage for a reasonable cost? Yes. Would I ever purchase it from this company again? NO. Insurance is useless if it takes months to even receive a response to your claim (if ever). I purchased trip insurance from this company on 3/13/20 for a trip scheduled for July 2020. My policy included the "Cancel for Any Reason" benefit. I had to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions. After canceling my airfare, I submitted the required claim documents on 4/10/20 and again on 4/29/20 when my status on the website didn't change. I also emailed the Claims department with a question regarding claims submission and, to date, have never received a response. I followed up with phone calls on 5/20/20 (I was told my docs had been uploaded finally), 6/26/20 (I was told a "case" would be started and that the agent my claim is assigned to would reach out via email with a status update the following week—no response), on 7/9/20 (I was told my claim would be "escalated to Management."), on 7/20/20 (I was told that my claim would be "escalated to Management for a callback today." I requested to speak to a manager since I was getting nowhere and was told, "No one is available." and all she could do was mark the claim for a manager callback—no response ever). It also did not matter what time of day or what day of the week it was, each time I waited on hold to speak to a representative for no less than 45 minutes. Initially, I could accept that a significantly higher number of claims were being processed due to the pandemic, but it is unacceptable that I could not even get a status update when my claim was allegedly assigned to an agent months ago. Just stop lying to people. I ended up filing a complaint with BBB as well as the Connecticut Attorney General’s office. I also started spamming them through Facebook Messenger. A few days after that, I got an email that I would be receiving information regarding direct deposit for my reimbursement. Ultimately, I did receive my money per my policy. However, the complete ineptitude of this company to even communicate with their customers, with a significant amount of money on the line, nearly overshadows that entirely.

Had to make a last minute claim in March 2020, not for COVID, but the flu. Because of COVID it took 5 months to resolve, and they requested information on items I wasn't requesting reimbursement on, multiple times, but eventually payed the claim. Impossible to call and not have a >30 minute wait, and no responses to email. Hopefully that was due to COVID, I hope not to have to find out again.
