AXA Assistance USA Platinum
We had to cancel our trip after being diagnosed with Influenza in March 2020. I was concerned that our claim would be seriously delayed due to the number of COVID-19 claims, but was pleased to receive a check in the mail for the full amount within three weeks of submitting our claim. Just purchased a policy from the same company for our rescheduled trip in October.

This is the worst experience I've ever had. I have been trying to file a claim for 4 days but no one ever answers the phone. I was on hold over three hours yesterday no one picks up. Absolutely a scam.

There were a few unexpected flight delays going to France and coming home but luckily the airlines was able to make provisions without any extra costs. It was peace of mind to having the insurance.

Although we didn't have to file a claim on this trip, we have learned our lesson on the importance of trip insurance for overseas trips. We have had to utilize the services for insurance in the past and the experience with the carrier was superb. We would have lost a lot of money in medical services and cancelled reservations that were not refundable. We don't travel without it now.

STAY AWAY FROM AXA INSURANCE. An insurance plan is only as good as the claim process, and my experience was terrible. My hotel reservation was cancelled 4 hours prior to arrival, due to the hotel booking firm going out of business. I called to ask whether my policy covered this as I was not sure if it did. The customer service person promised me a response in 2 hours, as he was also not sure, but none came. More than 24 hours later (during which time I had to scramble to rebook the hotel at a higher cost), I received an email saying I had filed a Trip Interruption claim (I had not - and it didn't seem that it would be covered under this section anyway) and asking for documentation they knew I wouldn't have. There was no explanation as to why they sent this and suggested I file under that. I emailed back to explain the situation as I assumed the phone rep had not understood or correctly communicated it, and question what the email was about but received no reply. I also received no further communications asking if I needed further assistance, or wished to proceed with my claim. All-in-all this was a very frustrating experience under stressful circumstances, I will not buy from AXA Assistance again.

Trip was cancelled so I didn't need this - and had no way of knowing how to cancel so I wouldn't be charged.

I did not have to file a claim but appreciated the peace of mind brought by having the insurance - it was for our son, who was traveling in the Dominical Republic with friends, and it was just reassuring to have the insurance.

I thought the plan was good but when I found out that I paid almost $90 for a 10 day trip and my bag got lost on the way back, I called and they told me that delayed baggage coverage was only for the way there which I obviously didn't know before. The customer service rep for AXA wasn't very friendly about it either. Luckily my bag turned up and I didn't need to make a claim. But I already paid for another policy for AXA for my next trip in October (previously paid for) so I probably won't use that company next year when I travel or I will read the fine print and pay less!

    Thank you for your review. We are sorry to learn your bags, but are glad to learn they did arrive back to you. We do suggest reviewing the policy certificate, before and after you purchase a policy, to ensure you know what your policy does and does not cover. There are plans available that do offer baggage coverage to and from your destination, but as you know not all do. If you would like assistance with a quote, please feel free to call us a 800-487-4722 and a licensed representative can assist you.
