Luckily we did not have to file a claim but we felt peace of mind knowing we had insurance to cover what was important to us at a reasonable cost.

I was encouraged to file a claim per my telephone discussing with an AIG rep. The claim was denied since my policy did not cover such a problem. Why did the first rep not tell me that?? I had to go through all the procedure in filing when it could have been avoided from the beginning.

    AIG Travel Guard always encourages policy holders to file a claim so everything can be thoroughly reviewed by a licensed adjustor. Please call AIG if you would like to further discuss specifics on this claim with a member of the Claims team.

I didn't need to use the insurance so I' really can't say if it would have provided good coverage.

I thought I bought trip insurance to cover any unexpected occurrences but I found out the hard way that it didn't cover squat. I've told my friends "what ever you do, don't buy AIG insurance.

    We regret to hear that you were disappointed when you filed a claim with AIG Travel Guard. However, there are no travel insurance plans that would "cover any unexpected occurrences". Both Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption would reimburse you only for covered expenses that are specifically listed in the policy. Although the number one covered reason in most Comprehensive plans is the unexpected sickness, injury or death of you, a traveling companion or family member, there are other covered reasons that may vary from plan to plan. The list of covered reasons may be reviewed in all plans prior to purchase by clicking on the dollar amount of coverage under Trip Cancelation in your quote.

    In the future, you may wish to call us at (800) 487-4722 for assistance in quoting and purchasing a policy.

We never fly overseas without first purchasing trip insurance. This website is the best way to compare plans and obtain estimates on coverage from different companies. It also has helpful links that help explain what each plan covers so you can choose the plan that best fits your needs. Once the plan is purchased, we can leave home with peace of mind knowing we're covered in case of an emergency. I highly recommend insuremytrip.com.
