Filed claim
International Medical Group iTravelInsured SE
My dissatisfaction with the claim and policy is complexity of the contract, written with an abundance of language that allowed my claim to be denied, all within reason, given the contract (20 pages). First reason given, no notice within 20 days of loss. I filed on grounds of employer canceling my vacation given the need for me to remain on duty (I'm a surgeon). The company stated that my loss occurred when the vacation was canceled. I filed 15 days after the date of return, assuming the loss occurred when trip would have been concluded; when all the arrangements were beyond salvage and when I had a chance to request all the refunds from airlines, etc. Second reason, some of the travel providers issued vouchers rather than refunds. There exists no way to use those as the trip was overseas, but the company considers vouchers to be refunds. Some of the vouchers expire before we will be allowed into those countries. The policy states "unused non-refundable Prepaid Payments or Deposits" will be reimbursed. I maintain that an unusable voucher is not a refund, since the definition of re-fund is to return my funds to me, not a promise for future travel. Lastly, I made what is a fatal error in changing my departure date by a single day without changing the policy. That apparently invalidates it. I may no longer bother with comprehensive insurance, and stick to medical only, as it appears to be an unnecessary expense given the myriad ways a claim can be denied. Although I shudder to think of the all the ways a company could escape paying a large medical claim.

Fortunately we did not need to file a claim but it was reassuring to know the coverage was there
if needed.

During these difficult times it was nice to have the assurance that if anything did happen we would be covered by the insurance package. Evacuation from a foreign country was a nice part of the package along with the medical care. Will purchase again for another trip.

Since I didn't have the need, thank goodness, to use this insurance I wouldn't be a person to rate how well or not well they were in handling any claims.

We buy insurance for every overseas vacation and this is the first time we had to submit a claim. Very pleased with how the claim was processed.

Did not have to use, but nice knowing I didn't have to worry. I wasn't happy that I had booked a tour for Sydney back in August but I forgot to add it to my insurance and it was going to cost me $200. to add just before I left. Thankfully I didnt have to cancel and it was only $190.00 tour. Might think twice about that next time I have to have Travel Insurance. And I had proof that I had book when I purchased my insurance. When you have a booking way in advance it is hard to think of everything. I think you should be more lenient in that respect.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply to our request. We certainly agree that it is difficult to recall every item if you book way in advance. However, in that event, you may add additional trip expenses after you purchase a policy. We suggest that you call us within 10-21 days (policy specific) of adding the additional expenses so we can re-quote your policy and add the trip cost onto your existing policy.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare
This was my first experience booking travel insurance and I’m so glad I did! With an unexpected delay of over 12 hours to get to my destination, the easiest part of my whole holiday was dealing with Berkshire Hathaway. They were prompt and helpful every step of the way. I’ll definitly use them again for all future trips and recommend them to friends and family.
