I had a claim filed. The claim has now been rejected because delayed luggage by a unionized baggage handler is not covered. This resulted in a missed connection whereby another ticket had to be purchased on a different airline. No reimbursement for the additional ticket.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn of the unfortunate event that occurred during your trip.

    Comprehensive plans are designed to cover as many risks as possible, but is very rare for any insurance plan to cover all possible risks. We strongly recommend customers read the terms and conditions of the policy within the review period to determine if the policy fits your needs. If the policy does not fit your needs, it can be cancelled within the review period for a refund of premium. Please call us at 800-487-4722 if you have any questions or concerns.

Silly me. I thought my $460 purchase would cover the flight cancellation resulting in the loss of pre-paid, non-refundable costs for hotel and tours for my covered trip. But, the cancellation was mechanical and not a "named hurricane" (in CA?). My fault for not reading the policy carefully...so buyer beware.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. AIG Travel has issued the following response:
    "We are sorry to learn of your frustration. The description of coverage for the plan purchased mentions “covered perils” but unfortunately a mechanical malfunction on a plane is not listed as a coverable peril. We are sorry that our response could not be more favorable to you.

    We encourage all individuals who are considering the purchase of a travel insurance plan to carefully review the description of coverage or the plan they are interested in before they purchase to fully know the extent of coverages offered in the plan."

Didn't need this, which I guess is the best part of having insurance.

I always recommend InsureMyTrip to fellow passengers because I truly believe the coverage is better and less expensive than what is offered through the cruise line.
