AXA Assistance USA Platinum
we had to file a claim for baggage delay and baggage damage (loss). after few initial back and forth - and waiting 20 days after sending final documents they requested, we did receive a refund minus refund received from the airline. the reason i put 4 stars is that there is no way to check claim status/details online - you have to call them. Also claim submission is done via email.

I think reviewing insurance plans only matters from those who had to file the claim, this is when insurance plan is truly tested for its "goodness".

I had to cancel my trip because of unexpected health issues. AXA uses a subcontractor to actually process the claim. The amount of detailed documentation demanded, and the unending requests for "more" information, dragged for months. Although they did finally reimburse for the appropriate expenses, I actually reduced the amount of my claim during the process because Delta unexpectedly refunded the cost my "nonrefundable" tickets; kudos to Delta. I don't know how AXA would have handled the plane ticket costs or change fee had we needed to resolve that issue, since I couldn't travel within the allotted time frame of allowable reticketing.

All good except we find the price went up because of our age although we both are in excellent health. To be fair, I expect that most insurers do this.

Because of the 18 month extended wait between booking our trip and leaving for it, we had to buy "cancel for any reason" insurance which is very expensive and does not provide 100% return of money.

AXA plans seem reasonably priced in comparison to others on the market, but prices for travel insurance are unreasonably high for seniors across the board.

Although we did not have to use the policy, I was at ease knowing that if I needed it, it was there.

Thanks for your help choosing the right plan.

This plan provided far more coverage for a young traveler than any other I reviewed. Especially nice was the coverage for travel delays and delayed or lost luggage.

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.
