My only thought was that I was over insured. The tour I was on had some coverage, but not cancellation insurance. So I felt I was paying double for similar coverage. However your price was the best I could find. I can't speak for your abilities in covering all these things as my trip was went off without a hitch.

We did not need to use the plan so I do not know how well it would have worked. It did give me peace of mind during our travels

To begin, when I tried to get the necessary form to file a claim, not only was AXA's phone system a mess, causing me delay after delay until I finally reached someone in Chicago who sent me a PDF that would not open, (and I have the newest version of Adobe Reader), and then that person was "not at her desk" immediately after she sent it - so after trying multiple times to reach her again, and her failed attempts to get me a document that WOULD open (she could not send a Word Doc), I had to have them send it snail mail. And that was just the beginning of my frustrations.

The reason I filed a claim was that when Delta changed our return flight to an earlier time, I was too far out in the country of Costa Rica to make the flight on time by scheduled means (van + ferry + van), so I bought a flight to get us to the airport a day early, and stayed in a hotel so we could make the flight home with Delta. AXA would not cover this under "Missed Connection" or Flight Delay" because it was not "a reactionary" event or "a defined Hazard".

I guess I should have missed the flight, stayed in Costa Rica another couple of days until Delta could reschedule us at $200 more each, and sent AXA the bill then. It would have been a lot more than what I wanted to be reimbursed for, but perhaps AXA would have had to pay me. On the other hand, they would have probably found some excuse not to.

I don't know what Insurance company would have covered my situation, or what policy, but it seems like buying insurance at all is just not worth it because of so many fine points they can find to NOT reimburse you. And the frustration of dealing with THIS company on the phone was extremely stressful.

When I buy travel insurance again, I will read the policy much more carefully and definitely not buy it from this company.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn of the setbacks you experienced when attempting to initiate and file a claim. We will forward your review to AXA Assistance USA.

    Based on the explanation provided by AXA per your review, they are correct is saying that Travel Delay or Missed Connection requires you to experience the Hazard in order to receive coverage. In our experience, the large majority of travel insurance companies would work the same way.

    In the future, we encourage you to call us at 800-487-4722 prior to purchasing a plan so that we can help you select a plan that best suits your needs and explain how the benefits apply.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip because we fell ill. I emailed AXA the completed claim forms and a note from the doctor. AXA paid us the full amount claimed, quickly, and with no hassle.
