Trip insurance, like most insurance, is philosophical. We had a bit invested in our trip and knew that cancellation would cost us everything we had spent. Any time we spend over a certain amount we can't afford to lose, we add insurance. We don't want to cancel a trip and not be able to afford rescheduling it. It is worth the extra cost for us.

FORTUNATELTY, we had no need to file a claim. Our trip with Odysseys Unlimited went flawlessly.
I'll most likely use "insure" on our next trip, just for the piece of mind.

Of course since we are not planning to file a claim we can't test it to see how good it really is - but barring that - our policy covered what we wanted it to at a far more reasonable price than the insurance company recommended by our travel packager proposed.

I am an 84 year old male, I was satisfied with your coverage, however , for a domestic flight and organized tour of NY, I was not pleased with the price for this coverage. I did check other insurance companies and found that you were comparatively
not out of line.

Don't really know how well program works since luckily I did not need to use it. Felt safe and inner tranquility knowing I was protected should anything arise to cause a trip interruption or cancellation.

Generali Global Assistance Preferred
My dealings with GGA were unhelpful, and a waste of my time and energy, to put it kindly. "Passing the buck", getting the run-around, however, you care to describe it, though kindly and polite, the 'Emergency Hotline" people were singularly unhelpful. (A bit like getting a computer technician 'from India'). Their phone help line seemed incapable, unprepared to answer the most basic questions, about providers, out-of-network providers, reimbursement, claim filing, etc.
I sustained a painful knee injury and needed treatment when I landed in Spain (from SF). For one month the pain continued, and it continued while I was in France for another month. I had purchased a 'comprehensive' policy with supposedly 'no out of pocked medical expenses.' —if I called emergency help line first, which I did several times. Ha! They had no one in Barcelona or Cadiz 'in network'. I was told to locate my own physician in both places I did, with some effort; then paid out of pocket, in cash for four treatments.
In Paris, I called the 'helpline' again and this time received in-network referrals. I made appt with in-network physician who promptly ordered an MRI for my knee. Again I called the 'helpline' to be sure they could make arrangements with osteopath and radiologist( I gave Drs. address, telephone) so I would not need to pay out of pocket. They assured me that, yes, they would, and then that they had, done so. No problem. When I arrived, however, I was told I had to pay for both doctor and MRI. After this, I received email notice from GGA that my claim had been filed and even given a claim number and told a representative would contact me soon (no one ever did).
Now I am home, I call GGA and am told 1)I have to file an official claim to even have any questions answered! The claim number they sent me was "not a 'real claim." 2) In addition to filing out various forms, I need to get a written 'disposition' from Medicare supplemental provider that they refuse to pay foreign costs (even though secondary covers ONLY what Medicare covers, no foreign medical coverage). 3) In the claim filing forms they sent me, I see: "invoices will not be accepted as proof of payment. You must provide credit card or cancelled checks." These foreign providers all requested CASH payments, and would not accept checks or credit cards. This caveat is not mentioned in the policy details.
In short, I am not going to bother to file a claim I am sure will be rejected. have wasted hours and hours of time and frustration attempting to get help from GGA with this injury. I would have been better off, handling this without trying to use them as an intermediary. I was fortunate, this is a relatively minor injury, but surely not worth the frustration, the jumping through the hoops and barriers set up by this company. Just get catastrophe insurance, I can only hope they might have come through if it was a life or death situation.
