Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Claim: 59572

My plan was purchased in 10/27/2019, months before COVID. This company looks hard to find an excuse to not honor trip cancellation, despite claims of "standard in the industry" or that they "regret" not fulfilling their moral obligations to honor the contract. It is my strong opinion that they have small print used to deny payments for legitimate claims, that this company does not deserve your trust or business. Nationwide certainly will never have my business.

The natural disaster is COVID. Travel to Europe from the U.S. is not allowed, as the entire U.S. is being quarantined from the EU. The hotel accommodations in Italy are not habitable by any U.S. citizen.

Additionally, I am a hospital worker potentially exposed to COVID patients daily. I must quarantine 14 days before allowing myself come in close contact to unsuspecting travelers, because it is morally correct. It is not possible to actually travel.

I do not think that I would be allowed to stay at my hotel if I were possibly contagious, if I were allowed to travel to Europe! Regardless,

I was reimbursed for most of my travel (airfare) by the airlines, so I was not even expecting to be reimbursed for the entire amount of my coverage, only a portion of the coverage for which I paid. Unlike other reputable businesses, this company does not warrant your business, in my opinion.

I filed a claim for a cancel for any reason trip to Italy February 28th, 2020. We realize this has been a difficult time with covid 19. Customer service didn't return phone calls several times. Emails have been sent repeatedly because they couldn't find files or mishandled files and requested them again. Even complaining to insuremytrip.com provided no help. My husband said don't buy travel insurance because it's a joke. I guess he was right! We will never use this insurance company again.
Update 6/9/20. Waited 3+ hours for an answer to my call to Travelinsured. The customer service representative told us they are no longer taking call back numbers. The representative, Debbie told us maybe in July we might get an answer from an analyst. We can’t have a contact number or email for the analyst. When we asked to talk to a supervisor, she refused! Twice! We would like to see our review posted so others will be able to purchase travel insurance that delivers what they promise. It’s not from this company!

I filed my claim on 2/25/20 and turned in all requested documents on 3/19/20.
I didn't receive any updates on the status of my claim until 5/14/20 when it was updated on the claim status website. I had sent emails and tried calling (without success since there was a 2 hours waiting time, and I left my call back number when requested, but no one would call back) several times.
Little disappointed about how long it took to process the claim. More than that, that I didn't receive updates during this time.

Everyone should travel with this insurance. We had problems with a very uncooperative airline. But these people took care of things. Thank you!

C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector Lite
We missed our scheduled connection at CDG by 8 minutes. As a result, our flight to NAP was delayed 12 hours. We filed a modest claim along with required supporting documentation for the extra costs (~$150) we incurred due to the long delay and our full claim was paid within thirty days of submission. While the insurance contract contains many limitations and exceptions, and the supporting claim documentation required was not insignificant, we would recommend this travel insurance company based on our positive experience. They are a reputable business.

Generali Global Assistance Preferred
I purchased a plan on January 29th, but after the initial coronavirus outbreak at the end of February, and prior to any quarantines in Italy, we rebooked our planned trip to go to a destination outside of Europe. Every hotel and the airlines provided immediate support - but I could not get in contact with Generali for over two weeks. I tried phone calls (where I was told there would be call backs within 3 hours) and emails (with no responses). Even InsureMyTrip could not get a response from Generali (on at least 5 different attempts through our March 6 departure). I ended up buying a backup emergency evacuation plan from another vendor on March 6 because "it was too late to duplicate the original plan with another vendor because of the timing of our new departure." I finally heard from Generali with a revision confirmation letter on March 9 "confirming our policy" with no evidence of the actual destination. Because of this experience, I feel it necessary to avoid Generali for all intents and purposes in the future.
