The price was reasonable for the coverage and provided peace-of-mind for the travel. I plan to use the same insurance company for future travel as the coverage options fit my travel style (and again hope that I don't have to make a claim).

The point of insurance is you pay for it and hope you never need it. We did not but were thankful we had it!

One never knows if a plan is appropriate for a situation until the event occurs. Fortunately there was no event, and the plan was never put to the test.

We bought travel insurance from Generali Global Assistance. About a month later I had mild back pain. I saw my doctor, he gave me some muscle relaxants and said I'd be fine and I specifically asked him if it was okay to go on my trip. He said yes.

While on my trip I suddenly experienced excruciating back pain. I saw the ship's doctor, got pain medication, rented a wheelchair, and my total medical bills during the trip were $1263.29.

I filed a claim with Generali. I included all of the receipts and documentation they asked for.

They denied my claim, based on the fact that the ship's doctor had written in my exam notes that my doctor at home had seen me for mild back pain before the trip.

Generali decided it was a pre-existing condition. I had MILD pain before I left on the trip. During the trip I developed a herniated disk (and have since had surgery for it.) The injury occurred DURING THE TRIP.

Generali didn't care. I asked if I could send them a letter from my doctor stating that he had told me I was fine and could go on my trip. Generali said it wouldn't matter, it was a pre-existing condition.

I asked if I could appeal the claim, I was told NO.

I asked them what would have happened if I had cancelled my trip because I developed mild back pain. They said I would not have been refunded my money because the medical issue was pre-existing, and the policy only covered medical issues that happened while on the trip.

Keep in mind, I had NO back pain at all and had not seen my doctor when I made the trip plans and purchased the insurance. Quite the Catch 22!

And if had a herniated disk BEFORE I went on the trip, I wouldn't have been able to walk. The herniated disk happened DURING the trip, and I was unable to walk.

But because I had been honest when speaking to the ship's doctor and told him I'd seen my doctor at home for mild back pain before the trip, and my doctor gave me some muscle relaxants and said I was fine, Generali still decided it was pre-existing. My home doctor specifically told me I was fine to go on the trip!

They had no appeal process, nor would they accept a letter from my doctor stating this was not pre-existing.

I DO NOT recommend Generali Global Assistance. They are a scam.
Anna Marie F. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
