Travel Insurance Reviews John Hancock Insurance Agency, Inc. Silver

The Silver plan is the mid-level policy offered by John Hancock and may be ideal for families traveling with children, as kids 17 and under are free as long as one parent is covered under the plan. Coverage is offered if you have to cancel or interrupt your trip for a typical covered reason which can range from an unforeseen illness, injury or death to your destination being made uninhabitable by a natural disaster. The Silver plan does offer higher limits of coverage than the Bronze plan for Baggage, Travel Delay, Medical and Emergency Medical Evacuation.

It was comforting to know that I was covered if I missed my connection, which was a tight one.

I am very satisfied with the resolution of our claim. The premium was fair. Processing time was much longer than anticipated, likely due to an exceptionally high number of claims due to Hurricane Irma. The delay did create some uncertainty that the claim would be paid but it worked out. I would prefer that the policy offered a “cancel for any reason” option. Given life’s uncertainties as a senior, I would likely accept the additional premium when insuring an expensive trip. Without this coverage, the fine print detail in a policy creates uncertainty.

On a one in a lifetime trip our family of six was without luggage for 5 days. We tried to make the most of it and didn't know when or if we would get our clothes and hygiene products back. We didn't purchase much to replace our things but we're later told we don't compensate for inconvenience just what you buy to replace. We learned!

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that baggage was delayed for so long during your trip.

    You did have Baggage Delay coverage on this plan under the following terms, which can be found in your certificate:

    'We will pay You for the expense of replacing necessary personal effects, up to the maximum shown on the Schedule of Benefits, if Your Checked Baggage is delayed or misdirected by a Common Carrier for more than 12 hours, while on a Covered Trip, except for travel to final destination or place of residence.
    You must be a ticketed passenger on a Common Carrier. All claims must be verified by the Common Carrier who must certify the delay or misdirection and receipts for the purchase or replacement of necessary personal effects must accompany any claim.'

    If you have any questions or concerns please call us at 800-487-4722.

It is what is is- a price to pay for peace of mind. As I did not file a claim it's hard to assess "value" but the price seems fair.

The plan looks great. Happily I didn't have to make a claim, so I can't comment on how it works in reality.

We've never filed a claim before.This was a trip of a lifetime for the family and our 30th anniversary. Two weeks in Australia-part with adventures by Disney and part on our own. We had lots of tough stuff like skydiving on the beach planned and wanted (needed) special coverage, just in case.

We made a mistake-we listened to the travel agent and booked the domestic portion of the trip on American Airlines. Two days of our trip we were trapped in Dallas Texas instead of playing in Sydney Australia. We missed the sydney symphony in the Sydney opera house-surfing at Manley beach-and a full day of the organized tour.

We called the emergency claim number while trapped in Dallas airport and insure my trip was the only nice voice we heard for two days.

We filed the claim upon return and they were terrific. Didn't need the special coverage (glad we had it for skydiving) but for the ordinary issues we did need the coverage and they were the best.

We can never get the wasted time and missed activities back, but the cost was recovered and expenses were too. Quickly, easily, and fairly.

Now if only John Hancock ran American Airlines.....
