I faxed my claim on July 22 and received approval on August 8, 2016 which I thought was pretty quickly. I didn't receive my payment until August 29. It took 21 days from the approval. That seems a little long to me. The letter said I'd get payment within 10-15 business days. That's exactly what it was but seems like after it's approved, the check should be processed immediately. Also, I didn't get payment for the extra night I had to stay in Capetown because of my friend's illness. Maybe all insurance policies are like that, don't know. But did receive reimbursement for the night I missed at Kruger, so I guess that was fair. The entire process took 5 1/2 weeks.....2 1/2 weeks for approval and 3 weeks to get the check. I think that process could be cut down and should be cut down.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of your purchase. We appreciate your comments and continually use customer feedback to improve our products including speed and efficiency of adjudication. For check payments the US mail also may affect timeliness and we are looking at ways to mitigate. We hope you will consider us again for future travel.

Everything went smoothly on this trip. This was a do over because I had to cancel the same trip in December because of leg injury. AXA gave me back every penny. I highly recommend AXA.

Claim was handled fairly and completely, after some initial delays relating to additional medical info requests. If I had been told of everything needed at outset I would give 5 stars. Customer service was friendly and helpful and once all info they needed was sent payment was full and prompt.

Never could get answers on coverages. I was trying to help my husband in the hospital, and all the plan cared about was getting my husband out of the hospital. I asked that they guarantee coverage, but was told no one to translate with billing, which was not true and made us wait for 3 hours to get a bill, only to find out only a part was guaranteed. Further, they undermined my attempt to get a bill with itemized procedures by telling the hospital that it should be given to AXA, not me. In the end they were not an advocate and my husband was discharged too early, only to end back in hospital on arrival in USA.
Tying to file a claim once in the US was nearly impossible. The AXA claim adjuster never returned my calls, and rarely answered any questions I put to him on his voice mail, If it were not for InsureMyTrip, I would still be trying to get claims filed and processing questions answered. The claims adjuster claimed that his voice mail did not work, but I sincerely question that his voice mail was continually broken from the beginning of January until the beginning of March. If it was, what good is it to have a claims adjuster who never calls you back? Many thanks to IMT for there vigilance!

I believe returning customers using the same plan and company should be given a discount.

    Thank you for your feedback. Due to insurance regulations we are not able to offer a discount for returning customers. We value your business and hope you will consider an AXA Travel Insurance policy for all your future travel needs.

I had medical treatment during our trip. I informed AXA before we got home and received a claim form. I filled it out and sent documentation (not difficult) and within a week I was informed that my claim was approved and I would receive a check within 2 weeks. Great service!
