I didn't have to file a claim so I can not say that the company was easy to work with. It was easy to
buy the insurance online.

Hoping to never use it but happy to know I am covered if I do. My credit card automatically covers trip cancellation, etc. but not the medical aspect and at any age one would hate to be blind sided by a medical emergency out of the country.

I have little feed-back since I did not need to make a claim. The purchasing process was smooth and pleasant. Other than peace of mind and decent value, which the plan provided, I have nothing to evaluate.

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!

I would have liked to have my policy number highlighted better in the email sent after purchase. I did call the insurance company number to check that I had the correct number before my trip started.
