Buyer beware of the waiting period for this travel insurance. We purchased this policy on a Sunday for a trip starting in 6 days on the upcoming Saturday. We found out on Monday morning that a family member passed away on Sunday night so we proceeded to cancel our plan tickets, tours, etc to mourn, spend time with our family, and prepare for the funeral. I filed a claim for reimbursement of non-refundable fees like our plane ticket, museum tickets, etc. We just found out that our claim was denied since the policy did not start until 12:01 AM the next day. Our family member passed away at 11:58 PM on Sunday (3 minutes before the policy was in effect on Monday). Be aware that you will not be covered until the waiting period is over, even when faced with a tragic circumstance like the passing of a family member.

    We're sorry to hear about the circumstances surrounding your claim and apologize for not meeting your expectations, Edward. We take customer service and the claims review process very seriously. We want our customers to understand the coverage details of our plans and cannot stress enough that it is important to review these details via the Plan Document that’s provided at the time of purchase, and contact us at (800) 348-9505 or via email at [email protected] with any additional questions. We have dedicated customer service representatives who can clarify the plan terms and conditions and guide you towards the best coverages. To further ensure customer satisfaction, we also offer a free look back period with all of our plans to allow customers to cancel their policies within a designated period as long as they haven't already left on their trip or filed a claim. While the Trip Cancellation coverage included in the plan you purchased can typically provide coverage if you are forced to cancel your trip due to the unforeseen sickness or injury of yourself, a traveling companion or family member, your coverage must be in place before the sickness first commences or takes an unforeseen worsening in order for the plan to provide coverage. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out to us at the number or email provided above.

I needed to make a change in the dates of coverage, as we left a day earlier than originally planned. I submitted the change form about a week before my departure. I received a phone call several days later, which I was unavailable to answer at the time. I called the person back at the number she provided and left numerous messages for her to get back to me, which she never did. Finally in desperation, I called the number for claims because we were leaving the next day and reached someone who was able to make the change and process the additional payment required. This is the first company that charged me extra for an additional day, and their communication was very poor when I needed to reach them. I don’t plan to use this company again.

I had two issues with this plan. (1) I originally purchased it for an August trip. The event I was flying down for got postponed, so I canceled the plan, and they told me I could get it reinstated when the event got rescheduled, by sending them an exception letter. When it got rescheduled, I sent them an exception letter and they offered to reinstate it for more than the price of the original insurance. That was nonsense, because I could buy an entirely new plan for less than that... which I ended up doing.

(2) The second time the event again got postponed. Because I had already flown down to Long Beach for the event, I claimed expenses, but they denied all of my claims. They said I would get an email explanation shortly but it has been more than a week and I have not received an explanation.

This company was referred to me by C a trusted travel advisor and I in turn refered to my traveling companions. Haven’t had a claim yet ( two trips) but I felt the coverage provided was reasonable, clearly stated, and met my expectations. So, I trust if I have a claim for future trips the coverage will be as expected.

We didn’t need to file any claims so it is hard to say how the company would have been had we needed to do so. Purchase was easy and coverage seemed to be what we might have needed if something went wrong.
