Travelex Travel Select
Overall, I'm pleased with this Cancel for Any Reason policy. I canceled the trip when I didn't receive my passport in time, per the policy instructions.

However, in order to get the claim closed and paid I had to make several phone calls to Travelex. I uploaded the claims form and receipts as required. I didn't hear anything for two weeks, so I called and was told they only had the airline receipts and for me to please send them the claims form. She said someone would be in touch to confirm its receipt.

I wondered why no one had called to tell me there was a problem. I uploaded the claims form a second time and another two weeks went by without anyone contacting me.

I called again to ask about payment status. I spoke with an agent who said the airline ticket receipt didn't include cancellation terms or the form of payment. I told her it did indeed include those things. She reviewed the receipt I'd sent and confirmed it contained the necessary information. She said she didn't know why the adjuster hadn't closed out the claim or why no one had been in touch. She also said they had received my claims form the first time it was sent and she didn't know why I was asked to send it a second time. About a week later I received payment in the amount I'd expected.

This was more hassle than it should have been. It seems the adjuster didn't review the submitted documents closely, which resulted in payment being made by 4-5 weeks, and that the initial agent I spoke with didn't review the file close enough before telling me to submit the claim form again. The TravelEx team needs to be more diligent.

The "unthinkable" happened in England as I stepped off a train an hour before leaving for a Baltic cruise. I fractured my femur and, as a result, was transported to Ashford, England, where I had surgery the next day, plus an 8-day hospital stay. We had purchased a Travelex Select policy and my husband promptly informed the company when we arrived in the ER. The hospital accepted our proof of coverage without hesitation or demand of an up-front payment of any kind.

When I was medically fit to travel, the evacuation part of the policy kicked in. On Call Int'l., arranged for an very competent and caring R.N. to fly to England to escort us home. On Call made all of the air and driver arrangements from the hospital to Gatwick to home.

Regarding the claims process: I filed a claim two weeks after arriving home for the hospital bill and the nonrefundable trip expenses. The response was slow but finally the claim was paid in full, per the policy. The hospital system also was patient, realizing that it takes time to collect on insurance.

Observations:

1. My husband's lodging, meals, and transportation expense was classified under the "Trip Delay" portion of the policy with a limit of $750, with the remainder out-of-pocket to us. Most trip insurance policies seem to have a similarly low limit.

2. There was no explanation why the entire hospital bill wasn't paid at first. I asked Insuremytrip.com for advice. They appointed a claims advocate who quickly resolved the issue.

3. Having a policy with primary medical coverage, instead of secondary, was essential to avoid further delay and hassles.

In the end, we were happy with both the Travelex Select policy and also with InsuremyTrip.com

Thankfully I did not have to file a claim with Travelex, but did enjoy the peace of mind that it brought. One thing that I appreciated is the coverage for repatriation, as this can be quite an unexpected expense if it is needed. Most do not like to think of such things, but, unfortunately, things do happen, even on a vacation.

Travelex Travel Basic
We were delayed in JFK for 5 hours on our flight from London. We had a flight to Fort Lauderdale that was delayed, and if it hadn't been for asking flight was, would never have known. Delta never posted a change. I will never insure again, because I only asked for $200 for the inconvenience of the whole thing.
We had to walk outside to another terminal in torrential rain, got soaked, because there was no other way to get to the change of terminal. JFK needs to find a better way, than get passengers soaked in freezing rain. We had a meal but I threw the receipt away, so so course the only paperwork I had was the boarding passes. I will never fly Delta again. It was a horrible flight from London, a delay at JFK and we got into Fort Lauderdale at 2.30am the following morning, without a stroller too.

    Dear Margaret:

    We want to thank you for taking the time to post your concerns, and we are sorry for your frustration.

    The Travel Basic policy has a Trip Delay Benefit Amount up to 500. This benefit allows reimbursement, if there was a 5 hour or more delay, for “hotel accommodations, meals, telephone calls and local transportation while you are delayed.”

    I have personally contacted the Claim Administrator on your behalf and they have advised in order to consider reimbursement under the Trip Delay benefit they require proof of the delay, which you may obtain by contacting Delta, and documentation for your out-of-pocket expenses, such as a credit card statement or receipt.

    In regard to arriving in Fort Lauderdale without a stroller, the Baggage and Personal Effects Benefit Amount on the Travel Basic plan is up to 500. This benefit provides reimbursement for lost or stolen items as described in the plan. In order to receive the Baggage and Personal Effects Benefit the Claims Administrator would need documentation showing that the stroller was lost or stolen, for instance, from the Airline or Police Department. They would also need a receipt for the original item or replaced item, to consider reimbursement under this benefit.

    Please keep in mind that Insurance is highly regulated and in order to validate coverage, claim forms and documentation (including documentation from the airline on the reason for the delay and the lost stroller) are an important part of the claim process as it relates to the specific conditions as listed in the plan purchased.

    We trust that you understand the Claim Administrator’s decision is based on the terms and conditions of the policy and the available information. If this information is incomplete or inaccurate, please feel free to submit any additional information to the Claims Administrator and they will gladly reevaluate your claim.

Fortunately did not have to use the insurance, but the proactive communication from the company was very good. The smart phone app is nice to have.

We purchased this plan because after comparing it to all the other Insurance companies and their plans this one offered the Most for a lower price. We are happy to say that there was no need to file a complaint because we had no issues or problems on our cruise and then land travels and flights home. We will be using the Travelex Select Plan again on another trip in the future.
