Very displeased with your cancellation provisions. I have purchased another policy with you for a trip in November 2023. We will not be able to make the trip and have cancelled it. However, I can not cancel my trip insurance policy as more than 14 days have lapsed since I purchased it. So I threw away over $600. In addition, if you did not have that clause regarding coverage for pre-existing conditions mandating that I must purchase the insurance within a minimal period of time after sending in my deposit, I could have waited to purchase the trip insurance. So I lost out 2 ways-- not happy!!!!

My daughters insisted that we purchase travel insurance for our trip to Utah. I read Clark Howard’s recommendation to go to a website to compare plans. I found that Berkshire Hathaway had the best. I’m happy that we did not need it and I’ve already recommended Berkshire.

Although it took about four weeks for the adjuster to start the review of the claim, the process itself was very straightforward and painless. Initially, I submitted all required documentation, and that helped to quickly settle the claim.

I ould not afford a plan that covered anything other than severe acute hospitalizable medical care. Rather, i had four brief hospital stays all of which were below the deductible PER episode. I paid for each event in cash and none of the events were enough over the deductible for each event. First dollar coverage for any medical need was not in m y policy. It is a crap shoot whether to pay the very very high premium expecting to need a hospital or doctor visits, or pray not to get sick UNLESS it is a catastrophic illness. BH never loses in either scenario. It's just business to them.

Fortunately, I did not have any problems on my cruise and did not need to use the insurance. But it was easy to purchase and very affordable. Will buy again for future vacations.

My flight was cancelled a few hours before midnight of the day we were supposed to travel. Because of the timing, the plan declined to cover for travel delay or interruption. Apart from medical coverage or a cancellation while we were on the way to the airport, this plan is filled with loopholes - doesn't really cover much and was quite expensive for my family.

Fortunately, never had an issue to need to submit a claim. However, policy paperwork with provided phone numbers were provided. Very easy to deal with . Would definitely use again .

At first I was nervous about this plan because it was the second to cheapest option, but I bought it thinking there was very little chance I would need to actually use it. Lo and behold, my trip was cancelled by the tour operator and I had nonrefundable flights. When I was submitting my claim I wasn’t sure if the cancellation reason was covered since it didn’t fall under the usual categories. You do have the option of calling to speak with someone and to ask questions, but I didn’t - I just submitted all my documentation and hoped for the best. The process to submit documentation was simple enough (you can either upload thru the mobile app or send via email), although I wish the mobile app can be improved to provide more details about the claim so that I didn’t need to email again to confirm that my docs were received. They tell you the review process can take up to 15 business days. My claim was approved after 6 business days. Happy it all worked out so I have already purchased Berkshire Hathaway insurance for another upcoming trip and plan to keep using them in the future!
