I was promised payment and have yet to receive it. Please contact them for me to see if you can help. They claim that their computer system has been down for these past weeks.
Later: After much effort on my part I finally got restitution. Case closed

The claim took a while, and you could not speak to anyone on the phone. All of my flights were cancelled by the airlines as there were mandatory quarantines in both the USA and our destination countries. I did receive refunds from the airlines but they refused to refund for the other prepaid expenses even though the airlines, and not me, cancelled the trip.

Had to cancel my trip for a surgical procedure. Contacting them was pretty painless and all of the follows were prompt. Instructions were pretty straight forward. Did have to submit additional than what I originally submitted but it made sense and was pretty easy to get. Took a bit longer to process because of Covid but overall excellent experience and I will absolutely purchase another policy from them.

My dissatisfaction with the claim and policy is complexity of the contract, written with an abundance of language that allowed my claim to be denied, all within reason, given the contract (20 pages). First reason given, no notice within 20 days of loss. I filed on grounds of employer canceling my vacation given the need for me to remain on duty (I'm a surgeon). The company stated that my loss occurred when the vacation was canceled. I filed 15 days after the date of return, assuming the loss occurred when trip would have been concluded; when all the arrangements were beyond salvage and when I had a chance to request all the refunds from airlines, etc. Second reason, some of the travel providers issued vouchers rather than refunds. There exists no way to use those as the trip was overseas, but the company considers vouchers to be refunds. Some of the vouchers expire before we will be allowed into those countries. The policy states "unused non-refundable Prepaid Payments or Deposits" will be reimbursed. I maintain that an unusable voucher is not a refund, since the definition of re-fund is to return my funds to me, not a promise for future travel. Lastly, I made what is a fatal error in changing my departure date by a single day without changing the policy. That apparently invalidates it. I may no longer bother with comprehensive insurance, and stick to medical only, as it appears to be an unnecessary expense given the myriad ways a claim can be denied. Although I shudder to think of the all the ways a company could escape paying a large medical claim.

Do not do business with this company! Truly the worst experience with an insurance company I ever had. The company denied my claim because: “United Airlines indicates the purchased airline tickets have a credit value that can be applied toward future travel. A credit is not considered a loss until the credit is no longer available for use. United has indicated the credit is valid for one year from the issue date. The issue date is November 20, 2019. Additionally, they have indicated change fees would be waived for these tickets if exchanged. In the event the credit remains unused and is not reissued prior to the expiration date, please contact iTI® at 866.243.7524 once the credit has expired for further claim consideration. Documentation will be required from the United Airlines stating credit has expired and was not used.”

This decision is not only at odds with public policy on corporate responsibility in an unprecedented business environment, but is incorrect for the following legal reasons:
1. I purchased non-refundable airline tickets for a trip that we preemptively canceled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic using the Cancel for Any Reason provision within our policy. Had we not taken these preemptive measures to protect our family and fellow world citizens out of an abundance of caution, we would have been entitled to a full refund of the airfare when the flight was officially canceled.
2. I was unable to find an explicit stipulation that a non-refundable airline travel credit must expire before a claim can be filed identified in the terms and conditions of my policy. Moreover, while the “loss” they referred to as basis for denial is not a defined term in my insurance policy, it is generally accepted that a loss refers to the monetary injury that results from the occurrence of the contingency for which the insurance was taken out. There is no situation that will occur to make non-refundable travel credits refundable. These credits cannot legitimately be construed as monetary currency, and as such we incurred the loss on the date we canceled the flights.
3. We specifically indicated on the Authorization form of our claim that we will not be using our airline tickets and included a copy of the electronic ticket confirmation which included the ticket numbers as appropriate. It is our expectation that the company would follow standard business practice and request the airline void any non-refundable credits pursuant to the claim and pay out on the legitimate claim submitted. We are absolute in our statement that we will not ever use these credits, as we do not plan to travel by plane at any time in the foreseeable future.

The Company denied my appeal without addressing the points noted above, instead citing general policy language regarding irrelevant terms, which explicitly construed were satisfied - very bizarre.

Pandemic resulted in resort closing and a trip interruption. We filed a claim. They initially denied it as IMG's legal staff advised them that "a global pandemic is not a natural disaster..." - which is not true and also not relevant to the claim (its simple trip interruption). Appealed the claim and in what seems to be a permanent hold. Absolutely horrible support from carrier - in any other climate, this would have been approved immediately...
Also, very disappointed in Insuremytrip.com - they should be screening their companies better and stepping in on their client's behalf

I had an emergency appendectomy the day my husband and I were to leave on an extended and expensive trip. It was obvious that the insurance should cover the trip. They received my claim on February 18 - and required a HUGE amount of paperwork, including our marriage license to show proof of relationship, and the payment was made May 12. There WERE extenuating circumstances (the business was hit with a malware attack and then of course the coronavirus). However, they kept on asking for additional information which they already had, but in a different format, and THEN finally, after numerous phone calls, they passed it on to another underwriter because of the size of the claim. That took an additional 3 weeks. Insure My Trip was of NO HELP. They sell the insurance and then you are on your own. I will not use either company again.

Took 6 months and multiple call attempts after filing a claim to finally get a denial for an emergency root canal for sudden nerve pain despite the policy saying dental is covered for “Unexpected pain or Treatment due to an Accident”. I even emailed to pre-certify and they responded that dental didn’t need pre-authorization. Regardless of the decision this was absolutely terrible service - 6 months without any response! Stay away from IMG.
