Didn't need to file a claim, but it is comforting to know that we were protected in case of problems.

I filed a claim because one day of my trip was rerouted due to security problems in Ethiopia and I incurred a loss. I received the maximum daily allowance for this itinerary change from John Hancock. When I called John Hancock about the claim, once in Ethiopia and once when I got home, each time the agent was courteous and competent. After sending my documentation, the check arrived in about 2 weeks.

I've always bought travel insurance and this is the first time I've had to use it. Our flight on the way back home was delayed by a day due to power outage in Atlanta. I filed a claim on 12/19/17 and I deposited the check on 1/29/18. While it takes time to process, the agents were helpful and quick to reply and the steps to file the claim was extremely easy. I primarily buy this policy for the medical insurance and I hope I never have to use it for that, however, the Trip Protection Coverage was wonderful when we used it. I am going on another trip and I've bought the same policy.

It’s hard to review any product that you didn’t actually use. All you can say is that relative to other plans, it potentially offers more bang for your buck. The good thing is it’s backed by major insurance company. You won’t know if it delivers until you need to file a claim.

InsureMytrip made it super easy to browse and purchase trip insurance and they sent email confirmation of my purchase. Days before departure they also sent a "Bon Voyage" email with reminders and links for easy download.

I chose the John Hancock Gold plan for my traveling needs. It is administered through Seven Corners. They sent me ID cards and plan info via automated email on the same day that I purchased the coverage. They also provided contact info.

I did have to file a claim and it was a fantastic experience. I wish all of my vendor/provider interactions could be like this.
I called them just after a failed air departure. I did not have to navigate a lengthy "phone tree" or remain on-hold waiting for assistance. I first spoke with Angela. She was pleasant, helpful with my questions and immediately emailed the correct claim form to me.

I don't like to email private information (such as SSN) and faxing was inconvenient so I'm glad that they also have online uploads. Unfortunately, I had trouble with the on-line uploading. It appeared as though my documents uploaded successfully (no red x's), but it turns out that they likely had not (Seven Corners indicated that they had not received them). Seven Corners encouraged me to resubmit them. This time around, I got immediate feedback via email for a successful upload. The trick was to just upload one document at a time and not try to upload a group of documents. It's more tedious, but doing so yields email confirmation ("proof") for each and every document.

One week later, they asked for additional information which I was able to email to them (no private data required -- just the certificate number). It was a reasonable ask for an explanation of why I wasn't on the flight. I received a decision regarding the claim within a week via email and received payment days later. They didn't HAVE to alert me via email that a letter was on its way, but it was much appreciated. I will also mention that each interaction included someone's name -- not some generic department. Today, I recommended Seven Corners to family who regularly travel internationally (and have been waiting months for their claim from another company to be processed).

Kudos to the John Hancock team at Seven Corners, Angela H. and Deborah C. as well as InsureMyTrip.com !

We had to cancel the trip due to a family health emergency. The claim was processed and approved one day after submission. I was quite pleased with the customer service and responsiveness!

We unfortunately missed the first day of our cruise due to our flight being cancelled due to an airport workers strike. The insurance claim processing was straight forward and they were very prompt on processing our claim. I will definately use them for our next trip. You always hope that nothing happens to delay your trip, but having an insurance company that is straightforward to deal with and prompt with a fair resolution gives you a lot of peace of mind when travelling.
