We didn't need to file a claim but we had peace of mind if we did need it.

When my trip was forced to be cut short due to the death of my father-in-law, we incurred non refundable hotel costs and airfare change fees. When I contacted Travelex, I was sent a 10 page form to be filled out, including one page which required the patient's doctor who I did not know nor had ever been in contact with. The doctor filled out the form as if it was for my father-in-law making the claim, not me because it was so confusing. Never did file the claim as my charge card covered the issue with no hassle at all. Makes me mad that I ever bought travel insurance since it appeared the insurance company was trying to make it impossible to prove that there was a covered incident.

Referred by a friend who had filed a claim. They were very pleased. We did not have a claim but felt good about the coverage.

Thankfully we did not have to file a claim for this trip. We felt the price for the product we signed up for was a fair price and would purchase the plan again in the future.

June 14 I just sent in my claim for medical aboard ship and lost bag when departure between ship and air port. Now I will find out how good they are. The claim I turned in was taken care of in about 8 days after sending in claim VERY satisfied.

Easy to give this Plan high marks since I did not submit a claim. I have no idea how the Plan would actually perform in that event.. It could have been anywhere from wonderfully responsive to a complete nightmare to resolve. I will never know.
