DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE! I paid extra for the cancel for any reason. My trip has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus and a travel ban to the country I was trying to go to. I was told cancel for any reason would get me 75% of my money back. My booking site is shut down due to the virus and I filed a claim on March 31st (over 3 months ago) Called them multiple times. Emailed with them multiple times. They still haven't refunded me. I could only imagine what they would do if there was a true emergency. Save your money and look for other companies that stand by their word and care about their clients. DO NOT TRUST THEM.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    We are sorry to hear that you were not pleased with your claim experience, but have received word from the provider this claim has been resolved. Due to the pandemic most providers are uncharacteristically behind.

My trip was cancelled due to COVID-19 and I lost money on some VRBO places. This company took 3 months to work my claim before denying it. They said COVID-19 wasn't a natural disaster. Worst company ever. Won't ever do business with this insurance company again. Avoid this company. I will file a complaint with the California Department of Insurance.

In November of 2019, I purchased an entire plan to protect and safeguard my investment and safety; Interruption, Cancellation and Cancel For Any Reason. While in Iceland during March 2020, Covid 19 interrupted our once in a lifetime vacation. Our flight was cancelled, we had to purchase more tickets and we were required to fly into a designated quarantine airport and then ordered by the CDC and DHS to quarantine at home, which we did. The CDC website states a quarantine will take place at home. The DHS (Department of Homeland Security) website states that all US passenger returning from Iceland will be quarantined. The John Hancock policy (managed by Seven Corners in Indiana) states in section (n) states: “If You and/or Your Traveling Companion are hijacked, “quarantined”, required to serve on a jury, subpoenaed, required to appear as a witness in a legal action, provided You or Your Traveling Companion are not a party to the legal action or appearing as a law enforcement officer; the victim of felonious assault; having Your principal place of residence made inaccessible and uninhabitable by a Natural Disaster; or burglary or vandalism of Your principal place of residence “within 10 days of departure”, they would pay for a Trip Interruption claim. The policy only says to be quarantined and we were quarantined within 10 days of our departure. For some reason, Seven Corners Claims Adjusters have turned a blind eye and denied my claim twice. They manufactured phrases to persuade me to accept the denial. I recently made a 3rd appeal and filed a Civil Remedy complaint against the company for Bad Faith and deliberately delaying my claims for over 3 months. If I can travel again, I will never purchase a policy from John Hancock again. John Hancock/Seven Corners should be ashamed of how they treat customers the way that they have during this unprecedented Pandemic. Please keep in mind that insurance companies like John Hancock know that most people will give up on a denial, that’s why they’re multibillion-dollar companies. If you have the time, do not give up and fight for what’s just.

Paid claim with ZERO hassle. Rough trip - lost Bose headphones between plane and baggage claim. Then arrived at YVR late due to flight delay. Had to take a cab and get a hotel room. Both claims paid with zero hassle. Impressive.

This is the first time I've had to file a travel insurance claim. While it took longer than I had hoped, I am pleased to say that my claim was handled with competence and care. My first phone call was pleasant and I received the information I needed to file my claim. I did try to include all the necessary documents the first time around, but I didn't have exactly everything needed. The follow up request for more specific documentation was reasonable. I felt that the company was merely doing their due diligence in making this request, for which I appreciate the need. I would be willing to use this company again.

We were unable to travel due to the corona virus in Italy. Your plan would not pay anything per your agent and I purchased trip insurance for nothing.

Did not file a claim even though the cruise ship ruined my husband's carry on suitcase handle. Didn't realize it until we got home. Grabbed it at terminal and put in car and headed home. Didn't check it over then. Our fault. So can't file with insurance or the cruise line as it's to late now.

Just good to know you have coverage in case you need it. We didn't need it so that's great.

Although we didn't need the plan, we were comforted that we were covered. The price was excellent and so much lower than the plan the travel agency suggested.
