Generali Global Assistance Standard
We were in Zimbabwe when the coup occurred November 15, 2017. When we learned of it and heard that US citizens should stay indoors, we decided along with our guide to leave Zim until we knew what was happening. We had paid for three nights stay in Hwange National Park and had one night there. We headed to Botswana and spent the next two days there until we felt that it was safe to travel back to Zim and on to Zambia to pick up our trip.

We lost two nights lodging in Zim and also the park fees. We had to pay for another visa back in to Zim so the costs were not insignificant. After returning home I downloaded the form for trip interruption added ALL of the paperwork and sent it off.

For the next four weeks we heard nothing. Not an email or any acknowledgement that CSA received the package we sent. Finally I called and was told that yes, they had received it and yes, it had a tracking number but the person handling the case was on vacation. Finally this week we received an email stating that they would reimburse us a partial amt of what we had claimed. It was not the most pleasant experience and I do not know if I would ever use this insurance company again. We travel a great deal and like to know that if something goes wrong that the insurance company has our backs. The policy was over $800.

    Thank you very much for the feedback that you have provided. Upon receiving your review to learn that you weren’t completely satisfied with your purchase, we assigned one of our “Anytime Advocates” who offered to look into the claim on your behalf. However, you replied with a very nice email stating that you believed that there was little we could do on your behalf, so we have published your review as originally submitted.

    Good luck on your next trip to Armenia and Georgia in October of 2018. If you change your mind and decide to purchase travel insurance, please call Customer Care at (800) 487-4722 weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight ET and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9PM.

Sold as a "comprehensive policy", it is anything but. We had a complicated, multi-part trip to Africa, including a safari followed by a cruise. The cruise line went out of business two months before we left. CSA refused to cover this, even though the paperwork implies that it does: it excludes coverage for financial insolvency **if it happens within 14 days of the purchase of the policy.** Well, this happened three months after the purchase of the policy, and it wasn't covered. We ended up rebooking the second half of our trip, which required flight & hotel changes and many change fees. Guess what? This wasn't covered either. We bought this expensive policy because we wanted to be sure everything was covered. Never again!

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn of the unfortunate event that occurred prior to your trip departure.

    Comprehensive plans are designed to cover as many risks as possible, but is very rare for any insurance plan to cover all possible risks. The CSA Travel Protection
    Custom plan is a Comprehensive plan which covers a wide range of perils and hazards. Financial Insolvency is not a covered event on this specific plan.

Many people disregard the need for travel insurance, but you never know if or when you will need it. In fact, I thought that I might need to use my coverage after suffering a burn in Botswana. I was happy to see that the out of country contact information was very clear on the paperwork, but even happier that I didn't need to use the plan!

Rates were much less than the tour company's rates. I didn't have to use the insurance but felt confident that all was covered. (I have made a claim in the past and it was quickly resolved to my satisfaction.)

Each time I spoke with a CSA representative about a travel protection policy, I was impressed by their calm professional approach to answer my questions clearly and concisely. When I had to file a claim for a canceled trip to Africa because my traveling companion was seriously hurt in an accident CSA processed and approved my legitimate claim in less than a week. I was impressed, but I also followed their directions to provide an adjuster with all the necessary documents to process my claim. I have since purchased another CSA travel protection policy to cover me while on a new trip to Africa. I am convinced this is a reputable company that treats its customers fairly. I highly recommend their coverage to insure a traveler that their needs will be taken care of in case of an emergency, an accident or a unforeseen delay while traveling.
