Travel insurance is paramount when you are traveling overseas because there is no way of knowing if or when an accident or injury will occur and the medical costs associated with that event can be very expensive. Having insurance to cover those costs at a reasonable price is just good common sense and well worth the expense and peace of mind. Thank you Generali Global Assistance for providing comprehensive coverage at an affordable rate.

Three days before we were scheduled to return home from France, our flight was cancelled because Thomas Cook Airlines went bankrupt. (Our tickets originally were through Condor and it was that airline that transferred our flight to Thomas Cook). We eventually did make it home and when I called Generali to ask if the policy I purchased had any provision for trip cancellation due to insolvency, the agent very nicely said "no" and that I should have purchased the premium plus package for that additional coverage. What irritated me was when the agent's parting words were "The next time you book a flight, you should check the airline's financial status to see if there are any problems." I'll be sure to do that.

    Thank you for your review. Unfortunately your Generali Standard policy did not offer Financial Default coverage. However, we did forward your comments to Generali who responded as follows:

    "We're sorry to hear about the circumstances surrounding your experience, and for not meeting your expectations. Letting us know how we are doing is the best way to ensure the best possible service to all of our customers. If there is something specific that you want to be sure is covered, feel free to ask about it before, during or after you purchase the policy. Our Free Look Period allows you to get a refund for your plan within 10 days from the time of purchase in most states. Please contact (800) 348-9505 or [email protected] if you have additional questions, and we hope you will consider us again for your next trip."

I tried to file a claim. The business I booked my hotels under informed me of their cease and desist order the day before I left for my international trip and I had to desperately look for hotel rooms. I was told it was not covered and was offered no help in finding new rooms. I am still trying to get reimbursed for the original rooms from my credit card company. Would not use this company again.

    Thank you for your review. Unfortunately your Generali Standard policy did not include coverage for a Financial Default. We also forwarded your email to Generali who replied as follows:

    "We're sorry to hear about the circumstances surrounding your experience and for not meeting your expectations. We want our customers to understand the coverage details of our plans and stress the importance of reviewing these details via the sample Description of Coverage/Insurance Policy that’s provided at the time of purchase, and contacting (800) 348-9505 or [email protected] with additional questions. The plan you purchased includes a variety of covered events under which we can provide coverage if an actual covered event forces you to cancel your trip. Unfortunately it does not provide coverage for financial insolvency."

Thankfully, we did not need this insurance on our trip. The coverage and customer service was excellent, even when we added rental car coverage. However, the cost did seem high amounting to nearly 10% of fixed trip costs. It’s the old adage, “It’s expensive until you need it.”

There’s not much to say, since I didn’t have to file a claim. I have no way of knowing whether I would find the claim process fair and efficient.

Luckily we did not need to utilize our plan but watching the plight of the Thomas Cooke travelers made us glad that we had a safety net. We will always protect our travel with an insurance policy because the world is wide and wonderful but things can go wrong.
