Filed claim
International Medical Group iTravelInsured SE
We notified IMG immediately and then filed our claim promptly, a month after our trip was cancelled because of my mom's death. Three weeks after filing all documents requested, through their secure portal, I called and was told they had never received any documents. A week after I sent them a copy of the receipt confirm they had sent me when I filed, they "found" the documents. Another three week pause before they requested additional info that they had not initially asked for. Another three weeks (always with me needing to initiate the follow up) and they said the claim from a hotel was not valid because they did not charge me until we had cancelled (which their website, which I had sent a link to, clearly stated was how they would handle charges and cancellations). Another three weeks and they said that even though I had provided proof that our train ticket was non-cancellable / non-refundable, I needed to prove that I had cancelled it and did not get a credit. It was not until I wrote a letter stating that I no longer felt that I was being dealt with in good faith, that three plus months after I submitted our claims, and lots of hassle, they paid the claim. This has caused me to seriously question whether trip insurance is really worth what it costs when you factor in all the work and hassle to file a claim. P.S. If a company is always experiencing "heavier than usual call volumes" is it really heavier than usual?

we did not experience any incident during the trip which required us to call on you. However, what was important was the comfort to know that Patriot International is there for us should we need any help.

After filing documents, responding to emails, and lengthy phone calls, the decision was not to pay.

Terrible customer service! It took over 4 months to get paid on a claim and literally 50+ hours of follow up calls with the company. Hold times were hours long and I received conflicting information. They seemed to do their best NOT to pay me for covered events in my contract - possibly hoping that I would give up. I had to escalate to the CEO in order to get any action. (I also requested help from Insure My Trip and that customer service was great). Be sure to read the contract before buying from this company. There are other companies on this site who might be a better fit. I can't recommend IMG and will never buy from them again.

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Thank you for letting us know about your claim experience. We are very sorry for the delays and multiple communications. Prior to the pandemic, claims were typically processed within 30 days provided that all necessary documentation was sent in. Due to the overwhelming volume of trip cancellations and other claims during the pandemic, the normal processing time for claims has been around 3-4 months over the past year or so with most providers. That time can also be longer if they are waiting for further documentation from you. Things have started to get back to a more manageable volume so we're hopeful claims will get back to a reasonable timeframe.

Thank goodness that I did not need to use the insurance. I like the Insuremytrip app and always use that when traveling.

The plan I chose was, IMHO, very expensive. Like all insurance, you pay for those who do not take care of themselves! However, you have to travel with it, or you are playing Russian roulette.

I did not get any satisfactory results to my claim. Agents request over and over again documents and proof of documentation without any accomplishments. If we buy an insurance is to have a piece of mind to feel protected not to get more agony when the problem arises.

I insured my trip through International Medical Group, iTravelInsured.

We were going to be gone for a very long time and since one can not insure just part of the trip there were few companies that would take on the long vacation; iTravelInsured however would and did. I contracted COViD and consequently had to make a large claim since we missed a lot, lying in a hotel room trying to get better. In settling my claim they treated me very fairly; my settlement was larger than I expected due to benefits like 'travel delay' and 'trip interruption'.

Timeliness.... But from the time I submitted my claim to the day I received my check it was one day short of five months. Toward the end of that period I was questioning wether or not they were really going to issue me a check; I was starting to loose sleep, waking up thinking about what to do next. Consequently, have your eyes open if you go with IMG iTravelInsured, their good qualities outlined at the start of this review were drowned by the tartiness of the settlement process and final payment.

Picked that plan because my parents wanted the highest coverage options but price was terribly expensive. They would use a cheaper option next time.
