InsureMytrip made it super easy to browse and purchase trip insurance and they sent email confirmation of my purchase. Days before departure they also sent a "Bon Voyage" email with reminders and links for easy download.
I chose the John Hancock Gold plan for my traveling needs. It is administered through Seven Corners. They sent me ID cards and plan info via automated email on the same day that I purchased the coverage. They also provided contact info.
I did have to file a claim and it was a fantastic experience. I wish all of my vendor/provider interactions could be like this.
I called them just after a failed air departure. I did not have to navigate a lengthy "phone tree" or remain on-hold waiting for assistance. I first spoke with Angela. She was pleasant, helpful with my questions and immediately emailed the correct claim form to me.
I don't like to email private information (such as SSN) and faxing was inconvenient so I'm glad that they also have online uploads. Unfortunately, I had trouble with the on-line uploading. It appeared as though my documents uploaded successfully (no red x's), but it turns out that they likely had not (Seven Corners indicated that they had not received them). Seven Corners encouraged me to resubmit them. This time around, I got immediate feedback via email for a successful upload. The trick was to just upload one document at a time and not try to upload a group of documents. It's more tedious, but doing so yields email confirmation ("proof") for each and every document.
One week later, they asked for additional information which I was able to email to them (no private data required -- just the certificate number). It was a reasonable ask for an explanation of why I wasn't on the flight. I received a decision regarding the claim within a week via email and received payment days later. They didn't HAVE to alert me via email that a letter was on its way, but it was much appreciated. I will also mention that each interaction included someone's name -- not some generic department. Today, I recommended Seven Corners to family who regularly travel internationally (and have been waiting months for their claim from another company to be processed).
Kudos to the John Hancock team at Seven Corners, Angela H. and Deborah C. as well as InsureMyTrip.com !
