Travelex Travel Select
Due to covid-19 outbreaks, my trip was cancelled by the airline and resort. Travelex denied my trip interruption claim. Other than the fact that it took 3 months for them to get back to me (after multiple inquires) but I was looking for a credit towards a future trip - not necessarily a refund. Nowhere was I given that option that BTW my traveling friend who used another insurance company was offered. I will NOT be using Travelex again!!

    "Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns on InsureMyTrip.

    Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company is the Claim Administrator who handles all claims questions and requests, and they are unable to assist you with a Date Transfers on the policy.

    We are happy that we were able to offer and finalize a Date Transfer, which will enable you to reuse the policy for a future trip.

    Please contact our Customer Solutions Department at [email protected], with the new dates as soon as you have them.

    Thank you again, and we look forward to insuring your future trip.

    Kind Regards,

My wife broke her arm in India. I called the company from India...they were unhelpful and wanted me to complete forms! That was ridiculous...how do you complete forms from India.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Please see the response from Travelex:
    "We empathize with the unfortunate situation that occurred to your wife during your trip to India and we hope she has recovered well. We contacted our Claim Administrator, Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company, and we are happy to hear that your claim was deemed payable, and that payment was issued in July.



    We would like to take this opportunity to clarify how On Call International, Travelex’s travel assistance company, offers assistance for medical emergencies that present themselves on a covered trip. On Call’s medical case process requires all patients to be evaluated by a treating physician and to have the medical information reviewed by On Call’s Medical Team to help ensure patient’s safety, in order to assist the traveler. On Call’s Medical Team specializes in flight physiology and follows guidelines set forth by the International Air Medical Transport Association and the Aerospace Medical Association to determine a patient’s fit to fly status as patient’s conditions may change at elevation. While the medical case management and fit to fly approval process can seem overwhelming, the process is important to ensure a patient is safe enough to travel home. "

I just filed a claim and have not heard whether my claim will be approved as of yet.
Update:
It took awhile but I believe the delay was partially due to the pandemic. My claim was
processed and I received compensation for extra expenses incurred due to our trip delay.
I am totally satisfied and would recommend this to anyone wanting to purchase travel insurance.

The Travelex claims website required that I file a claim to get copies of the doctor’s form and then had to start all over again once the doctor completed the form. It would been easier initially to go to a page setup up for downloading forms.

With the necessary forms in hand, filing online was fairly easy and the claim was approved within two weeks.

After waiting 10 weeks for a response.....our claim was denied. Apparently terminating the trip early due to a worldwide pandemic and borders closing down was not a good reason. Warren Buffet should be ashamed of himself!!! No matter how I justified our claim the rep said a pandemic is not included in any of their policies.
I'll be sure to find insurance elsewhere for our next vacation.

    Thank you for your feedback. The insurance provider has issued the following response:

    "Thank you for expressing your concerns on InsureMyTrip.com.

    Please note that Travelex Insurance Services, Inc. is the marketer of the travel insurance plans and does not make any claim determinations. Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company (“BHSIC”) is the underwriter and the Claim Administrator for all claim or appeal related inquires.

    In the policy details, which were sent to you on August 31, 2019 when the policy was purchased, it explains all the eligible reasons for trip cancellation, including the terms, limitations, and exclusions. Which includes the General Exclusion “(d) any government regulation or prohibition”.

    Having said the above, we do empathize and recognize that coronavirus has created a difficult situation for travelers.

    We recommend talking to your Traveler Suppliers about transferring any monies paid to a new trip. Additionally, it may be possible to obtain a Date Transfer on your policy, which allows you to apply the plan to another trip, in the future. If you would like to apply a One-Time Date Transfer to your policy, please contact us at [email protected], so we can help process the cancellation of your claim and apply a One-Time Date Transfer to your policy.

    It is important to remember that insurance is highly regulated. Claims need to be processed according to the policy details and based on the documentation submitted to the Claim Administrator.

    If you believe all or any part of your claim was wrongfully rejected or denied, you have the right to have your claim re-reviewed by BHSIC, if you are able to submit additional documentation. To submit new documentation or for claim questions, please contact BHSIC at 1-855-205-6054 or by email at [email protected], Monday – Friday, 7:00 am – 7:00 pm CST.


    Kind Regards,

Update: After waiting for nearly two months I was contacted by email saying they've now processed our claims and the checks are in the mail.They are covering the portions of the trip that we insured and reasonable coverage was provided; however, the customer service was non existent and super slow to respond. ***Submitted a claim for Coronavirus ( Cancel for any reason). No response, never contacted by an adjuster. Can’t reach anyone in claims. I’m sure they’re swamped with claims but it’s been almost a week with zero contact. I wouldn’t purchase this policy or work with TravelEx in the future. Poor customer service.

I was pleased with the ability to purchase on-line and how well the process worked when I needed to file a claim. It was easy to contact a real person when I had questions. The customer service was efficient and accurate. The email explaining the analysis and reasons for part of my claim not being covered was easy to understand and thorough. A great experience of how on-line and non-local transactions should work. Thank you.
