We booked a trip Feb. 12, 2020 and purchased insurance Feb. 14, 2020. Due to the corona virus we canceled the trip. We called Travelex to make a claim.. The Travelex agent told us the corona virus was NOT a covered reason for trip cancellation, so they would not make any payment.

It was unclear as to if the Insurance plan would cover a cancellation say up to 72 hours prior to departure with a full refund due back. Thank you, Jim Kraynik

    Thank you for your feedback. According to the certificate, it shows that your Travelex Travel Basic plan would provide Trip Cancellation coverage due to a covered peril and that the insurance provider would need to be notified within 72 hours of a covered loss in order to file a claim.

    Please contact 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to assist you if you have additional questions.

The plan seemed to cover everything we needed but we didn’t claim anything so it’s hard to say if we’d be reimbursed.

Glad I didn't have to use it, but I thought I might need it a couple of times. Once, when our luggage was delayed several days upon returning home. We were among the last groups to leave Israel before the travel bans were put in place. We were not sure we would not be detained somewhere on our flights home.

Fortunately I did not need to use it. There were 3 of us on the tour of 38 persons that had our luggage all the way through. All the rest had to go home w/o their checked luggage! So thankful I had mine!!

I purchased the plan in good faith thinking I will never have to use. Unfortunately my husband Deonarine Prasad fell and broke his leg. I could not get hold of anyone lines busy and long hold times so I gave up. We handled ourselves with medical in India paid out of pocket expenses. With assistance of the airline somewhat we are back home.
I am not one to complain but this was unacceptable
