Generali Global Assistance Preferred
We had to cancel our trip at the last minute due to extreme health issues. Everyone at Generali was very helpful and kind and were able to help me get the information I needed to complete the claim. I was able to get our money refunded. I will definitely plan to work with them again.

We have used this plan for the second time and it meets all of our requirements and concerns. Fortunately, we have not had to make a claim. We will continue to use General Global Assistance in the future.

It took me five months to achieve final resolution of my claims against my policy. The final resolution was satisfactory, but Generali's attention to detail and responsiveness were very poor. Their initial payment on my trip interruption coverage was incorrect; they failed to understand that the total cost of the trip that I provided them was per person, not for the two of us combined, and so the payment was much lower than it should have been. They identified my "claim representative" soon after my initial contact, but several e-mails and phone messages to this person went totally unanswered. When I finally managed to speak to someone who could resolve this issue, it took only moments for me to explain the discrepancy, and for them to acknowledge that I was correct, and that the documentation that I provided had been sufficient and quite clear. For the medical claim, once again, their initial calculation of the payment due me was wrong; they had misread the Explanation of Benefits statement that I provided, reading the amount covered by my primary insurance as being the amount of my out-of-pocket expense. So I had to contact them again. When I finally got to speak to a real person, it took only moments for me to explain their error to them and for them to acknowledge it. After this they corrected the calculation and sent me a check for the correct amount.

No way should I have had to spend this much time trying to contact them about their own errors. And generally, the errors were due to people not carefully reading the information that I provided. And it annoys me no end to leave e-mails and voice-mails and have them go unanswered. In spite of having FINALLY received the proper payments for both trip interruption and medical, I would not use Generali again. My time is worth something too!
