AXA Assistance USA Gold
Total failure by insuremytrip. My mother passed away four days before our trip. I was led to believe by the person I called I have full coverage to change the airline tickets. Since we bought tickets so early, and now having to change a flight from New York to Italy within a week the increased costs were over $4800, but again they said we are covered. So we scheduled my moms funeral promptly an delayed our departure by two days. Heart broken and sad over the loss of my mother we left for our trip at least feeling better believing the almost $5000 would be covered. I made all the proper notifications and filed a claim. They DENIED the claim and sent us a check for $200! They claimed the delay was not covered beyond $200. I appealed it only to be denied again...they said they would have reimbursed all of our money if we canceled, but since we were able to salvage our trip we are out over $4600 in additional costs! They have no heart and could care less about the customer...they promptly took our money but in true insurance company fashion denied our claim. It makes no sense canceling if you can delay....or at least so we thought. I would NOT buy insurance from this company!

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are very sorry for your loss and to hear that your claim was denied after your appeal.

    The AXA Assistance USA Gold plan is a Comprehensive plan which covers a wide range of perils and hazards for Trip Cancellation. Unfortunately, it was determined that the claim did not fall within the scope of Trip Cancellation because you would have had to cancel the trip with your Travel Suppliers to be covered under that benefit.

    Please consider calling us in the future prior to purchase so we can review the plan benefits with you and answer any questions you may have about coverage. We do want you and your fellow customers to be aware that InsureMyTrip offers a Customer Advocate Program. Customer Advocates are representatives assigned to assist customers who experience issues after filing a claim. Requesting a Customer Advocate is as simple as calling 800-487-4722 or emailing customercare@insuremytrip.com, explaining the events which resulted in a claim, and the challenges you are facing.

This travel plan was expensive and I have no confidence at all that if needed, AXA would actually help us or pick up expenses. I need to rethink whether I need travel insurance in the future.

    We thank you for your comments. Policy premiums are based on (1) age of travelers, (2) trip cost, and (3) length of trip. Your premium was only 0.059% of your total trip cost which was actually economically priced when compared to other plans with comparable coverage.

    We are also happy to hear that your travels were without incident so that you did not need the services of AXA Assistance USA. However, if you had needed their services, you had access to 24 Hour Worldwide Assist Services which would included but was not limited to:
    Medical and Dental Referrals
    Critical Care Monitoring
    Emergency Medical Evacuation
    Medical Repatriation
    Return of Mortal Remains
    Dispatch of Prescription Medication

    along with AXA's "White Glove" Concierge Services.

    Once again, thank you for taking the time to reply to our request for your review. In the future, you may wish to call Customer Care at (800) 487-4722 for assistance in quoting and purchasing a plan.

We have always had a good experience with Insuremytrip, but then thankfully, we have never
had to make a claim and of course, that's when we find out if our insurance is any good.

My cell phone was stolen while changing trains in Naples Italy. We reported this to the ticket office and filled out a report but did not have time to get a copy. When I filed a claim for it, AXA wanted a police report which, being back in the states, could not be obtained. I showed them emails suspending my service with Verizon and having Samsung disable my phone. You can not talk to an adjuster just someone in customer service and they can only read your file to you. I paid over $600 for the insurance and was only asking to be reimbursed $175. BAD, BAD!!!

    We are sorry to learn of the unfortunate instance that occurred during your trip.

    We have received the following response from AXA Assistance USA:

    "We appreciate the feedback you have provided. We are sorry to learn you weren’t completely satisfied with your purchase. Unfortunately, when filing a claim for stolen personal effects, a police report is required as stated in the benefit description of your policy. In the future, you may call us during your trip so we may assist you in clarifying policy benefits and with the claims process prior to incurring additional costs. We sincerely hope you will consider us again for future travels."

    This is an industry standard procedure regarding stolen personal property with travel insurance.
    If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call InsureMyTrip at 800-487-4722.
