Travel Insurance Fails to Perform

ATTORNEY NEWSLETTER

ABOUT TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance is supposed to protect you from unexpected events that prevent your trip from happening, and from unplanned events that happen during a trip. It’s marketed and sold either directly by the travel insurance company, or is frequently sold together with the purchase of an airline ticket from some of the major airline carriers, including Delta Airlines.

CLAIMS DENIAL
Many people purchase travel insurance before traveling, but their trip is canceled or interrupted.They will then make a claim under the policy. When people purchase travel insurance, often they are not aware of all of the exclusions that travel insurance companies can use to avoid paying claims. Travel insurance carriers often classify medical conditions or bad weather as “pre-existing” as a reason to deny claims.Travel insurance carriers might classify a medical issue as too minor to justify postponing your trip. Allianz Global Assistance, one of the largest travel insurance carriers, describes it this way: “it’s not ‘cancel for any reason’ travel insurance, and that’s why it’s essential to read all the terms and conditions when you buy your plan.” The Evans Law Firm, Inc. is investigating whether travel insurance carriers are improperly denying claims.
