My husband and I planned a fabulous cruise that was to leave from Lisbon Portugal and end in Amsterdam with a hotel stay there for 4 nights. As we always do at the senior stage of life, we purchased insurance from "insuremytrip". I love that I can compare different plans for coverage & cost to help make a decision. We also chose the "cancel for any reason" addition to the policy. This is the first time I have ever had to make a claim on insurance, but we decided to cancel just before the final payment came due and I submitted a claim. Within about a month, we had a check for the 75% maximum reimbursement based on the terms of the plan. We were very satisfied!

Fortunately, I enjoyed the trip and never needed to use your plan. I was happy to get the coverage and felt confident it was just what I needed to cover my trip. Thank you for your service.

Thankfully, I had no reason to use the plan while in Europe, and this complete coverage gave me great peace of mind as we traveled.

Hard to assess the "goodness or badness" of the plan given no claim was file.

We purchased insurance for a catamaran trip in the BVI. As we started our trip there was a minor risk of a hurricane forming but it was supposed to take days before posing any threat if at all... 3 days of 7 in the operator said we had to beach the ship and we should leave the BVI because a hurricane was going to make landfall there in 4 days on our original day of departure.

We had to buy last minute tickets to get the 6 of us home. We had 2 hr direct flight on spirit and 22 hrs return flight to St Martin, Panama then to Miami and an 2 hour uber ride home. Hurricane Irma ravaged the BVI, and then followed us home to Florida.

When i went to file a claim i was denied because 1) we chose to leave BEFORE the hurricane hit (even though the island ordered an evac and the operator ordered us off) 2) Before our airline cancelled our return flight (the morning the hurricane hit spirit cancelled the flight) 3) there was only a potential threat to our home; ie if we rode it out there we couldn't make it back to shutter up our house...

So I asked in writing what should i have done and the response was that we should have waited out the storm in the BVI and they would have reimbursed us for return flights... whenever we could have gotten them. I asked should i have cancelled the trip since a tropical storm was being watched (though it wasn't a hurricane) and the answer was we wouldn't reimburse you for that since you chose to cancel before an act of nature.

So in short if a hurricane is coming your on your own unless you ride it out at your destination, then you may stand a chance of some sort of reimbursement No reimbursement for the lost flight, transfers or the emergency flights out. But have fun with no food, water or power for how ever many days before airlines resume flights.

The only positive was the catamaran provider took complete care of the crews, got them home to saftey, and without question gave us a credit for the days we missed.

AXA claims handling is terrible. I made a claim because the first leg of a three leg international journey was cancelled due to a winter storm. I had to rent a car to drive 300 miles to the next airport to catch the second leg of the trip. The airline's ticket refund was less than the cost of the rental car. I filed a claim with AXA for about $100--the amount the rental car charge exceeded the airline reimbursement.

I submitted the extensive documentation AXA required. After 6 weeks, AXA denied the claim with a nonsensical letter. I explained the claim again, and AXA requested additional documentation, which I provided. In response, AXA denied the claim again--this time insisting that my flight was cancelled 2-1/2 months before departure, not the night before departure. I threatened a small claims lawsuit and reported the matter to insuremytrip.com. After a few weeks, AXA requested (for the first time) a letter from the airline confirming the cancellation and the reason. I provided that documentation and my claim was finally accepted.

    Thank you for taking time to submit your review.

    Although we are very sorry that you had such a negative experience with the AXA claims department, we are pleased to hear that AXA has now paid your claim.

    We did not publish your review when it was first received on May 25th because we assigned an Anytime Advocate to support you with the process since you believed that your claim was unfairly denied. Now that your claim is settled, we are publishing your review.

    Please feel free to call Customer Care at 800-487-4722 if you have further questions.
