My husband's health took a turn for the worse shortly before our scheduled cruise. His physician recommended that he not travel at that time. We filed a cancellation claim and were very satisfied with the outcome. It took about a month for the claim to be processed. I chose to handle the claim via their website and the process was easy to follow.

The plan provided my family with the coverage we wanted. Fortunately, I had no need to file a claim, so I don't know how well AIG would have done actually implementing the coverage. I was pleased with the ease of purchase and the informative follow-ups for the coverage.

I have used AIG travel insurance many times after comparing the coverage and the price to others and I believe it is a good coverage for a decent price, but fortunately, I have never had to file for a claim so I can’t comment on how effective AIG truly is.

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.
