Consumer Complaints and Reviews
Our car was stolen from our driveway and used for drugs, joy riding, wrecked 5 times with damage to all sides of the car. We even believe that someone had sex in the car and left behind the proof! Stolen for 32 day and 15K miles add to the odometer. Sounds like a total loss to me but TRAVELERS Insurance is forcing me to take this car back and put my wife and two kids back in it. We are beyond disappointed and at a loss as to why this company would do this.
On day 32 (2 days after they started cutting the check) the car was found and TRAVELERS decided that it should be fixed. $3K ($15K in damages) from being a total loss and now I have to put my family back into this trashed car. The Police even told us the car would never be SAFE from the CRACK and METH that was done inside. TRAVELERS wants me to put my kids back into this car with only a detail clean on the inside. $280. My family is worth was more than $3K and $280 dollar cleaning.
I was looking to change my car insurance company from a very liberal company Progressive to a more conservative backed company. I went to AMAC where I found out about Travelers Insurance. When I called to complete the transaction of setting up my policy, Travelers Insurance explained that their policy requires me to put my boyfriend on my policy and he never drives my cars nor would I allow him to drive them. He has his own vehicle which is 10 years newer than mine and he has his own insurance but they would not write a policy unless he is on it. Totally ridiculous. Well, though I'm not happy about Progressive's politics, it seems that I'm better off with them since their service has been good thus far.
My daughter called for roadside assistance - Don’t trust them. They are low on the service provider. She waited 4 hours and we called repeatedly - They kept telling us the truck was on its way and then 45 minutes later we called back and they kept repeating the same and told her she could not leave the car. Then they told us to leave the car with the key on the tire so they could tow it but they were not responsible or my daughter should just continue to wait. They lied and lied and lied repeatedly all day. When she said she needed to leave and would call the next day they SUPERVISOR hung up on us, not we will schedule it for tomorrow NOTHING. I am so disgusted - I'm changing all my insurance. The lady treated it like it was our fault - and when I raised my voice they told me I shouldn't be - My daughter in the middle of Columbia SC in the freezing cold for 4.5 hours missed all her classes to wait and shouldn't be upset with all the LIES!!!
Bait and switch. They will quote you one price online, then tell you when you call to get the policy that they can't issue insurance at the price quoted. They'll say the online system quotes the "silver" package and over the phone they quote the "gold" package and actually cannot sell you the silver package.
Had auto insurance on 4 vehicles, for a little over a year. No claims, premiums paid on time by automatic deposit. Apparently Travelers didn't like the way my sons car was titled. They canceled ALL coverage without contacting my insurance agent or myself. The only way we found out was my wife went to my agents office to get a copy of an insurance card. He found the policies were canceled in September... It was the 1st day of December when she went in. No coverage for 3 months! Even my agent was flabbergasted, and could prove he had never been contacted. Thank God we didn't have a wreck in that time period, we could have been ruined.
Now we are limited to what coverage we can get because we had "a lapse of coverage". Now my coverage is doubled for 6 months. I'm punished for something I could have changed, (name on title) or even dropped my son from my insurance and put him on his own policy. Not even a phone call. You would think that if a company is going to cancel something as important as auto insurance on 4 vehicles that would have to send a registered letter... Nothing. Travelers sucks. Never again, and I will tell everyone I know how terrible they are.

We had Travelers for two properties & auto insurance for years. We found auto insurance that was $100 less per month with Geico, so we wanted to change to save the money. Travelers said that they would drop the property insurance if we didn't keep the auto insurance with them. I felt like we were being blackmailed. Needless to say, we moved all of our insurance. Then they turned a payment over to a collection agency, that I didn't think we owned as it was after our account was closed. We are NEVER late on payments. It was the worst experience ever.
I want to say I had a girl slam into my car as it was parked in front of my home. I was inside thank god, but from the time I talked to the claims agent on thru the adjuster I was totally satisfied as how I was treated. I called in distress because now I had no car and due to all my doctors and so on they gave me a rental and came out as soon as possible and the adjuster also was very nice. They have made a horrible day turn into a sigh of relief. Just want to thank those whom were involved with helping me get my car fixed. Again I am thankful for their professional way of helping me.
Spoke with a very rude Stacey **. After getting run around with this company a 65 yr old hit my parked car busted the axle on it. Neighborhood people saw the old gentleman hit the car. He totaled his car now. I sit at home not able to make any money due to my car be wrecked. See, us uber drivers require car to work. Now they are saying they won't pay so I'm lawyering up the people who watched the old guy hit my parked car. Have no problem testifying. Police should've taken his license and locked him up. Now my kids will go without a Christmas due to this guy and his nonefficient insurance agency. If you want an agency that gets ** done go progressive and screw you travelers ins.
My vehicle was totaled by another car whose driver was insured by Travelers. The claims agent from Travelers has been abusive, insulting, and just plain belligerent. The driver that was insured by Travelers was cited by the Colorado Patrol for reckless driving. The injuries sustained by my wife could be very severe. Travelers has treated like crap. Beware!!!
Travelers is the worst insurance I had to deal with. Very very poor and weird customer service. Someone hit my car from behind and I had to deal with this insurance... I can not even talk now. I'm so mad and I don't recommend this insurance to anyone.
I am SO ANGRY! In early March, I dropped my girlfriend off my auto policy. Travelers said I could not do it without making up a whole new policy! Since when can anyone not take a vehicle off their policy!?? Travelers sent my girlfriend a bill at her parents' address for a policy they started for her without her knowledge or agreement! They asked me for the information supposedly to contact her in regard to starting her policy. Yeah, that NEVER happened. Travelers sent her to Collections. She received a letter from a collection agency in August for coverage never paid from the date I dropped her until I changed my insurance company to AAA on June 5th!! How does that work!?
So that same day as I said, I started a new policy in my name only. I had weekly payments removed from my paycheck. It works great. I don't have to worry about sending in money. In June, I went with AAA. I called Travelers on 3-way with the AAA agent and switched over my car insurance. The week after my girlfriend called and complained to Travelers about her bill for insurance she never asked for, I also received a bill from a collection agency for monies owed to Travelers!!!
After my initial explosion, I called Travelers and vehemently explained how it was impossible I owed any money whatsoever as I had payroll deductions. I also called and switched insurance on June 5th. The agent never said a word about outstanding money owed then!! I asked why they didn't say anything then, or at least send me a letter or a bill...something!! They said they did!! Here's the kicker folks: They sent the notices to her MOTHER'S HOUSE! Yeah, that's right. They set me up with a new policy. It did not go back to payroll deduction. It did not get separated from my girlfriend. I had NO idea that I owed them money until I looked at my pay stubs!!!
Travelers ADMITTED they were wrong. They admitted they did not set up my policy properly. They sent mail to the wrong address. They never called me AT ALL, then I even switched companies. Still wasn't told even when changing to AAA!! Travelers Insurance is one of the most screwed up companies I have ever dealt with. I still have my homeowner's policy with them. I am worried!! They have messed with my credit, put me in a bad situation, and offered nothing as a solution.
This is the worst company out there. Do not buy any kind of insurance from travellers. Don't let their low initial premium suck you in, after year or two. They will "audit" and raise your premium 2 or 3 folds even though I have not have any claims at all. My premium went up from 1800 to 5400 the 3rd or 4th year. I have to cancel my insurance (I was stupid not to cancel right away, I waited till the policy ends). However, they still "audit" and bill me $1800.00 more for ended policy!!! Again, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!!!
I was rear-ended on July 25, 2016. Myself and five children was transported to the hospital. The adjuster refused to pay medical bills and made a offer for five hundred dollars. I ask that our medical bills be paid by their policyholder, which was found at fault from the police report. Travelers Insurance Company is still refusing to pay medical bills. My family and I would never had these medical bills if the driver of Travelers Insurance Company was paying attention. Now Travelers Insurance Company is stating they are not paying the medical bills from the accident on July 25, 2016 caused by their policyholder. No justice for a single mother of five.
My car was parked on a side street. Travelers insured hit my car to avoid a squirrel!! Most likely she was texting and speeding. Travelers said the car was totaled. Now I am having a hard time getting someone to return calls. VERY POOR SERVICE. Believe me I wish my car was not hit, but give fair market price on a car that was well taken care of. How do I know you will send check, if I send title? I would like to speak to someone. They do not like to return calls at all.
I had a car accident on 7/20/16 (just over 4 weeks ago). My car is a total loss. After MULTIPLE emails and phone calls with no response, I still do not have a check from Travelers. My rental is due back at Enterprise early next week and I will have no way of getting back and forth to work. I finally called my insurance agent who was able to get a hold of someone from your office. Their excuse was, "They're busy with all the hail damage claims." NOT MY PROBLEM! I will be sure to spread the word to everyone I know and every media outlet, not to use Travelers, nor will I be using Travelers Insurance on my new vehicle (if I'm ever able to get a check from your company). I'm disgusted with your company and so-called customer service.
Recently got an auto quote on a Monday, I was impressed that it was cheaper than Geico. After setting up my account I was told they would call me on Wed afternoon to set up my autopay (begin coverage), they never called. A week later I called back, had to go thru the entire process again. After telling the lady my past experience she assured me that it wouldn't happen again and that she would guarantee that she would call me back Wed (payday) to start the autopay (begin coverage), believe it or not "No Call". I guess they don't want my business or they just don't care.
If I'm having this much trouble simply trying to open a policy I can only imagine what I would go thru if I had a accident claim. Also, before calling a 3rd time I decided to read their reviews. Thanks everyone, including the 2 salesman who didn't return my call to start my policy. *Lesson: You get what you pay for. I'm sticking with Geico a little high but excellent service.
I was hit by a Travelers insured driver. They are at fault. Horrible fix on my car and suffered depreciation due to having a bad Carfax, not of my fault. Travelers did exactly what I thought non caring company would do and that was nothing. Not even politely. If I ever need insurance Travelers will never be my choice. Horrible customer service and not caring attitude.
Someone insured by Travelers rear-ended my car. The estimator came to take a look. I definitely felt like the estimator by Traveler's insurance tried to short change me by trying to reuse parts, and telling me where to go to fix my car. Their homeowner and car rates are very high as well. A while back I shopped around for insurance company and they had some of the highest rates.
My motorcycle got knocked over by one of Travelers' customers. Chad at Travelers told me to go to the Harley-Davidson Dealership to get an estimate for repair. I took my motorcycle down and left it 4 days to get the estimate, picked it up and came home. Now I have two men two hours time invested for the trip and 4 days without my motorcycle. The estimate was not what Chad and Travelers was expecting so they sent an adjuster out, it would have been easier to send the adjuster out in the first place, but it's a nickel and dime company. Save a few bucks if they can get the estimate they want.
So the adjuster Mark cuts the estimate down. Believe it or not Seacoast Harley-Davidson quoted a part at $108.95 and Mark repriced it at around $106. Really? We are talking about a $27 billion dollar company, sad and pathetic. So they screwed me out of about $1000 when all was said and done. Hey mister Travelers' president now you have gas for your yacht, congrats!!!
On March 12, 2016 my adult daughter who lives in my home and was under my auto policy plead guilty to: Physical Control/Suspension. On May 31, 2016 I received a letter from Travelers stating that my policy was being cancelled effective July 4, 2016. The letter also included a line stating "I had undoubtedly been contacted by my agent." I was never contacted by anyone so I contacted Travelers. The lady I spoke with who was in a no win situation was very nice. She pulled up the notes and confirmed that nobody had attempted to contact me on a decision made in early April.
I understand why they would drop my daughter. She made a mistake and has been dealing with the consequences. What I don't understand why they would treat 2 other drivers with 90+ years of driving experience this poorly. At the very least they could have contacted me back in April instead of waiting until the last moment.
I had Travelers Insurance for a few months and then found out Nationwide Insurance was much cheaper for the same coverage. I called Travelers Insurance to cancel my monthly payment and that I started with Nationwide Insurance on April 10, 2016. Well they took out a payment on April 18, 2016, so I had to call and have them reimburse me, because I canceled 8 days earlier. According to them they had no record of me calling. So therefore, I had to cancel my policy again. This time I actually filled out a paper to cancel. Well May 18, 2016 comes and they take out yet another monthly payment. Not only are they taking out my monthly payment twice after I canceled. But since I wasn't aware of them doing this my account went into the negative and I was charged $36 NSF fee for both charges that were supposed to be canceled.
So I call them yet again, to tell them. They said I have a refund coming for the payment, but it's not their fault I got charged $72 in NSF fees. I thought that since I called three times now to finally cancel a payment that should've been canceled three times now, I would at least get my $72 dollars back in NSF fees. Travelers Insurance said "No we will NOT refund you for your overdraft fees. That is on you not Travelers." I am a single mother of 2 kids. I don't have extra money in my account for a company I canceled with three times. $72 is a big deal for me. I have never ever had such a huge problem canceling something, and them saying I didn't call is another way for them to cover their own **. I would never ever recommend Travelers Insurance to my worst enemy (if I had one). Very poor customer services and horrible experience with them. I would attach information to this but it would only be my bank statement and I would rather not do that.
After a heavy hail in my area I've called Travelers Insurance to file a claim. An adjuster came and gave me an estimate for my vehicle. He stated that I can have my vehicle repaired at any repair facility of my choice. The repair shop I chose informed me that my hood needs to be replaced regarding close to a 100 impact points caused by hail. I insisted the usage of oem factory part. The shop called the adjuster who said, the hood can be replaced only with aftermarket part because the customer signed the agreement in his contract. Also he told the shop to call him when the hood arrives and he'll come and take the hood to get it painted. After this the repair shop didn't accept the repair of my vehicle because of quality guaranties. This is absolutely ridiculous and I'm VERY disappointed at Travelers Auto Insurance. I advise everyone not to chose Travelers Insurance!!
This is possibly the worst insurance you can get. They are very expensive and don't want to pay out if anything happens. Last year I cracked my front bumper and decided to have the insurance pay for it since I do have insurance. Well guess what, with even a clean driving record they decided to terminate my policy!!! Well they did me a favor because I now pay 200$ a month less for my insurance through Geico for my home and auto. So Travelers is a horror, but if you don't believe me try for yourself.
This is the worst insurance company I have ever been with. I was directed there through an agent who promised me that if I bundle my renters insurance and auto insurance as well as payroll deductions, I would get a greater discount. After an hour on the phone, we agreed to the price of $1548. In two months, my coverage jumps to $1825.2 without sending me any notification. When I tried to reach out to them to get answers, I was given the old run around ("drop calls", line transfer, long hold, voice mails) you name it. As a result, I decided to terminate the service. They continue to send me a bill and threaten to take me to the collection agency (ruin my credit score) if I did not pay. I called them again to investigate the reasons why my insurance balloon without my knowledge. They replied that they need "proof of continuous coverage" prior to their service. I called up my old insurance company and send them my documents.
They told me that this was all they needed and that I will be given a refund back. I hear nothing for the next 2 days and decided to email them. They told me that because my coverage did not meet their expectations, they cannot honor that refund. I did more research on this company and found that I am not alone. There are many others who are scammed by this evil corporation TRAVELERS. They will give you what you want to hear and increase the cost behind your back due to hidden fees and missing documents that was never specified in the original agreement. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from here. I do not want innocent people to get screwed by Travelers. When it's too good to be true, it is.
Recently in Texas I got a hail damage on my 2015 model vehicle. No Glass broke, Nor any big dents. I have some minor dents. For which the Adjuster looked at my vehicle and Said it is a Total loss because it costs 9500 to fix it. And they have valued my ACV very low. Which means I will be at big loss even after having a insurance. Before I agreed with them they sent request to my bank to closure and they requested my car to be towed. I did not release my car till now asking for more time. I also gave estimate from another shop which they deny saying it does not cover all damages identified. It is going on and on. Feeling bad to be with travelers since I have go thru this loss even after having a insurance. Most of the other insurance have paid check on the same day it was adjusted. Please advise on what I should do? Should I raise a complaint with TDI?
From the moment I signed up as a policy holder, it has been horrible. You have to fill out form after form, submit proof of this and that. They will find something, anything to raise your rates. I had a false claim against me for a tow from my previous insurance company. Travelers would not listen to me and gave me the runaround over and over again. I investigated this on my own and got proof that this was false and they still wouldn't listen to me. Eventually after a month of hell a supervisor decided to get involved and apologized profusely.
Since then, I have had my rates increased twice. I've only been with them for 6 months. When I called to find out why I got a very confusing explanation from the representative who answered my call. When I asked for a supervisor, she said she would review the increases and send an email with an explanation. She was snide in the email and the reasons for the increases were completely different than what the rep stated and just ridiculous. I haven't even had to use their services and have already had rates increased twice in 6 months. I am looking at other insurance companies.
My wife was hit by one of their insured. It entire accident was this guy's fault (my wife was in park and the vehicle was actually off) and rather than take care of my wife and get her a rental and begin repairs on her vehicle Travelers decides to see if it was a mechanical failure rather than driver error. Even if it is a mechanical error, it was their insured that hit my wife's vehicle and should pay to fix it and pay for her rental, but being how Travelers seems like money mongers (who gets Travelers anyway???) they would rather beat around the bush and try to pass the blame. If it is mechanical failure then they can fight that battle with the manufacturer and get their money back but my wife should not have to suffer for it. When discussing this with their agent Sarah on the phone, she even had the audacity to LAUGH at my wife's situation... This seems like a horrible company from the ground up. Stay away.
Horrible, they raised the premium significantly the second term (no ticket, with perfect record). I asked the agent to beat the rate from another insurance company. They couldn't do that. So I told agent I would not use Travelers Auto Insurance and switched to another company (State Farm). After one month, Travelers send me a bill for one month premium for which service I did not use. It is covered by State Farm and I told agent clearly I would not renew before the renew time.
I paid my policy in full Feb 2016 only to receive a letter with a refund check stating my policy was canceled on 4/12/2016 because I didn't send in the correct paperwork but I have insurance cards and all I'm out of almost 200.00. I'm very unhappy. This company sucks.
Had an adjuster out of Portland, Oregon for property damage by auto claim in eastern Washington. He never went to view damage, never wanted pictures, never waited for the police report and never wanted to interview witnesses. Just denied the claim without any of the facts. What a joke.
