HTH Worldwide TravelGap Voyager
As far as lost items go the exemptions list is ridiculously long. Basically nothing is covered lol. Good from the health perspective but as far as personal property you need to get a better plan

    Thank you for your review. Most plans do not offer coverage for a missed port. In the future, please call us at 800-487-4722 and we can help you find a plan to cover your concerns.

I had to change the coverage by two days more and the insurance company charged me $9.00 more even though the price of the trip decreased. They would not give me a refund or at least not charge me the $9.00. Nickel and dime me!

    Thank you for your feedback. Although we are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with the policy, the HTH Worldwide Trip Protector plan included a 10 Review Period:

    "All premium is non-refundable after a ten (10) day review period from the date of purchase in the event You have not incurred any claims during that time. In the event the premium paid for coverage is less than the required premium for coverage, benefits will be paid in direct proportion of the actual amount paid to the required premium due."

I visited a doctor in Japan and got medication. The entire cost of the visit was less than my premium. I filled out the claim form with all the requested information, which includes a form (in the same PDF) for authorizing communication via email (note: their only communication options are email and postal mail). Their initial response came 8 days later and was to send proof I was in Japan (and would be leaving) and that I did not fill out the electronic communication waiver (what?). I replied the same day with the waiver attached and flight details.

After that I didn't hear anything from them, not even a confirmation, until I asked about it 1 month from my initial claim. 5 days later I received in postal mail an EOB that said my claim was denied for lack of documentation. Then that same day or 1 days later, I received an email saying my claim was paid by check. I received the paper check 1 week later.

Overall, I think the communication and claim process was subpar. The claim form was a non-fillable PDF that I annotated over so I didn't have to print it out and scan it. The process seems like it's designed to be difficult to use.

They don't give you any guidance on how to handle foreign languages or currencies so I had to just submit and hope they did translation/conversions (seemed to work).

The fact that they ignored their own waiver form to send me an identical waiver form and fill out again was very annoying, and the lack of communication overall really didn't sit well with me.

I can't imagine what it would have been like trying to communicate with them if I'd had anything complicated happen.

    Thank you for your feedback. Even though your claim may be less than your policy premium, insurance providers still require specific documents to pay your claim. We are pleased to hear that your claim was quickly settled.

      Yes, I'm aware of the document requirement. I sent all the documents requested with the initial claim except for the airline confirmation (because it there was no indication that was needed beforehand, another example of the poor guidance on submitting a claim).

      Please note that the main point of my review was slow and unclear communication. The claim was not "quickly" settled, it was settled slowly and with conflicting information, and a > 1 month period of time with no response from the company.

I did not have to use the insurance but the peace of mind it provided while I was on the trip was wonderful. Knowing it was there should a need arise gave me comfort so I could have fun and no worries.
