i was concerned that the insurance coverage excluded the most expensive portion of my trip which was Alaska fish. if something had happened and the cargo was lost and spoiled then short of a nice long visit to Alaska there would be nothing to show for it. That's not right. if you are in the insurance business than do it 100%. I dont care to hear anymore excuses as to why you wont insure the fish. If that's the only response you can offer me than don't bother responding. It doesn't mean i wont use your service in the future. Only that i am not 100% satisfied.
FYI the fish made it home safely.
thanks

This plan is an excellent value. It covered everything I felt I needed and at a reasonable cost. It gave me peace of mind during my two-week trip overseas.

Thankfully, I have never had to file a claim. Obtaining these policies is required for student travel at our college and satisfies the requirement regarding deductible and coverage at a reasonable price.

I am very pleased with AIG I had a family member in intensive care and had to come back from my vacation. I lost 11 days of my vacation and filed a claim. Scott assisted me and I was thrilled with his professional manner. He was sincere and helpful and I appreciated that. My family new I came back early and felt bad I had lost so many days of my vacation. Family always comes first and I reassured them I had bought insurance and would try to file a claim. AIG reimbursed me for the 11 days lost and since I told my family a check was sent to me they realize in the future they will purchase insurance on their trips in the future. Some thought the insurance would be a scam, they now see it is definitely worth the extra money. Thank You

All my claims were fully covered, even the medical Rx's incurred after we had our emergency return from the trip. Airline costs, medical costs, and lost vacation days due to our illness all covered and paid in full.

Upon landing in PHL, I noticed that United had smashed my double hardcase Sporttube. While there was no damage to the skis, the case was ruined. United wrote up a claim but would only offer me a $75 voucher. I only use frequent flier milage when flying United so the voucher was of no use to me and didn't even cover half of what a new Sporttube would cost. After trying multiple times to reach a representative in United who could help me, I turned to AIG. Their response was courteous and in short time they refunded me the entire cost of the double Sporttube. I will definitely use them again on any of my trips and I would recommend them to any travelers, especially those flying United.
