I had a very small claim of $36 for a 15 hour delay at LAX. I really only submitted it to see how difficult it would be to file a claim before I purchased from them again. I had to submit just a minimal amount of paperwork and received an electronic check in a couple of weeks. The only issue was a lack of communication. They give you a website to track your claim but it was never updated beyond they received my documents. I had to email them for status. I did end up purchasing my next trip insurance from them.

Fortunately, I didn't have to file a claim so it's hard for me to rate the plan.

I have compared plans and I like this one because I know people who have had to use it. They pay upfront costs so you don’t have to shell out money and wait to be reembursed. No one needs that in an emergency.

I have come to believe Travel Insurance is useless except for in very RARE circumstances. Last year I did not purchase insurance for a trip that was cancelled as the taxi was in our driveway. Come to learn the insurance would NOT have covered it anyway. This year I called your company to see what assistance I could get when it appeared we would have a 9 hour delay in our flight, causing a connection to be missed. The best you could suggest is that we purchase another 1 way ticket and submit a claim when we got home.....and PERHAPS we would be reimbursed for it. Well....we all know how THAT would have turned out!!!!

I am currently holding insurance on 2-3 more trips. When they are completed we will not be purchasing any more trip insurance as it is for the most part useless. I could have had another Tanzanian safari for 2 with what I have paid you all over the years. Turns out if we had we needed to file a claim, it would have been money down the drain.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your review. Perhaps we can change your mind with a more detailed description of coverage.

    All travel insurance is written on a 'named peril" basis which means that the reason for the claim must be specifically listed in your policy as a covered reason. The number one covered reason for Trip Cancellation in all Comprehensive plans is the unexpected sickness, injury or death of you, your traveling companion or your family member. Of course, there are other covered reasons that vary by policy. As you found out, canceling your trip because there is a taxi in your driveway would not be a covered reason under any of our plans.

    We can also understand why you would be bothered because a claim representative would not confirm payment for a claim. No one will predetermine a claim until the company has received the paperwork. Nevertheless, there may very well be coverage under your policy for your Missed Connection:

    "If You miss Your cruise or tour departure because Your arrival at Your Trip destination is delayed for 3 or more hours, due to:
    a) any delay of a Common Carrier (the delay must be certified by the Common Carrier);
    b) documented weather condition preventing You from getting to the point of departure;
    c) quarantine, hijacking, Strike, Natural Disaster, terrorism or riot.
    We will reimburse You, up to the Maximum Benefit Amount shown in the Confirmation of Benefits, for:
    a) Your Additional Transportation Cost to join Your Trip; and
    b) Your Prepaid expenses for the unused land or water Travel Arrangements; and
    c) reasonable accommodation, telephone and meal expenses up to 0 per day necessarily incurred by You for which You have proof of purchase and which were not paid for or provided by any other source."

The website is easy to deal with and allows options for coverage that aren't that visible when you go through a travel agent.
It saved us money!

Since I did not have to request reimbursement for a filed claim because I went on the trip, I don't know if this would have been a good deal.

I am giving it 5 stars because it provides coverage for everything I was looking for at a reasonable price. However, since I didn’t have to put in a claim, it is difficult to judge how supportive and responsive the company would be which is what truly separates a good insurance plan from a bad one.
