the claim was handled online and very professionally. I had to phone them a couple of times for some input; they were courteous, efficient and knowledgeable.

I'm very displeased with compensation for missed connections. I've never made a travel insurance claim prior to this, so maybe my expectations are all wrong. Travel insurance apparently offers no benefit for your lost time. My return flight was delayed 3+ hours from Europe, which had a cascade effect in the US, causing an even greater delay. The airline gave me a stand-by ticket and a hotel room. I did not get selected for the first standby flight (there were 20+ people on standby that evening). My flight didn't leave for the final destination until the next day, resulting in a missed work day. What was reimbursed by this insurance plan? Only the ride share to/from the hotel, which was less than $40. What cost me the most money was that lost day of work. The claim took two weeks to resolve.

UPDATE 1: Let me clarify "resolve". Two weeks is when I received the explanation of benefits (EoB). My original review did not account for post-EoB incompetence. I filed on July 11. I was contacted with the EoB two weeks later. Then on July 30 I was contacted that my wire transfer could not complete. The rep didn't know if they needed wire or electronic/paper. There's a difference but rather than be specific, they then offered to transfer using PayPal. They ask which PayPal email. I tell them it's the same email as the claim. That was July 31 and I still have not received compensation. I'll update again when (if?) they can complete the transaction.

UPDATE 2: I received the PayPal transfer on August 13. That's 33 days from my original filing date for compensation totaling less than $35. Choose your plan accordingly, dear shoppers.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We have submitted this to the insurance company and they have provided the following response.

    "Thank you for taking the time to post your concerns and we are sorry to hear of the frustration you experienced while traveling.

    We would like to take this opportunity to explain how the policy offers coverage for the different benefits included. The policy that you purchased is a Named Peril Policy meaning the policy outlines how the coverage and benefits apply in the event that your trip is Delayed, Interrupted, or Cancelled.

    Trip Delay offers reimbursement for Reasonable Additional Expenses that are incurred due to a Delay, caused by a covered reason, on your trip. Reasonable Additional Expenses are defined as “…expenses for meals, taxi fares, essential telephone calls, local transportation, and lodging which are necessarily incurred as the result of Trip Delay and which are not provided by the Common Carrier or any other party free of charge.”

    We are happy to hear that the airline assisted with your hotel and return flight. In the event that the airline did not provide this help, you would have been eligible for these benefits under the policy. The amount reimbursed, under the policy, is less what is paid out from other travel providers, like the airline. Unfortunately, missing a day of work is not listed as one of the covered reasons for any benefits under any policy.

    We appreciate your feedback, in relation to your reimbursement, and we did contact the Claim Administrator on your behalf. The Claim Administrator will take this opportunity to further improve their processes.

    We trust that you understand the Claim Administrator’s decision is based on the terms and conditions of the policy and the available information.


    Kind Regards,
    Amber"

It is difficult to rate travel insurance as good or bad if you are fortunate enough to never have to file a claim. My trip went very smoothly. A friend gave me a list of possible travel insurance plans to look at which included the Travelex plan I purchased. I will include Travelex in the search for insurance for my next trip.

I found Travelex to be very responsive. I explained what happened and I had to file multiple claims to cover the costs. The format was very straight forward and simple. I had the check in 15 days from filing the claim. The only negative was their third party Global Assist. They were not very helpful. They told me I had to find my own doctor! They are suppose to provide a list of doctors. Fortunately we were on a tour and the tour director was very helpful in getting me a doctor to see. I already have taken another policy with Travelex for the trip we booked for next year.

Took the advice of Clark Howard and found Travelex through his website, and so relieved I did. We had a significant medical claim and sent our paperwork in upon our trip return. I immediately received confirmation and within two weeks received a follow-up email confirming that our claim had been approved. Less than one week later, our check was received in the mail as we had requested. Well worth the investment, peace of mind and completely satisfied!!! *****

I have used Travelex several times to insure my adventures. Their plans are easy to purchase on line and they actually have customer service reps to assist in your purchase and answer questions. Their website makes it easy to compare plans with different companies so you can choose based on ratings, price, and coverages. Fortunately I have never had a claim so I cannot speak to their accountability.

I filed a claim for a non-refundable hotel reservation that I was unable to use due to the cancellation of my cruise by the cruise line. It was processed quickly and I received the refund within just a couple of weeks.
