I always buy insurance from Travelex when traveling abroad. Buying an insurance online is easy and also filing a claim is easy and payment is fast! Now the payment can be received in Paypal account, which makes the payment process much faster.
Thank you for sharing your experience on Consumer Affairs.
We are happy to hear that our Claims Process was easy and that payment was fast. We hope you think of Travelex the next time you are looking to insure your travel!
Thanks again and have a wonderful day!Kind Regards,
Once I got to the insurance website, everything was fine. However, it was miserable getting to the proper site. It would be very helpful if you had a link to the insurance site from your Travelex website.
Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns Consumer Affairs. We empathize with your frustrations but wanted to take a moment to explain the situation.

I've gotten Travelex for my family of 4 at least a dozen times in the past. I get it every time I travel internationally. I never had to use it in the past, but this summer, unfortunately, I had to file a claim due to flight cancellation and a one week delay. The process took about 3 weeks from start to finish. It was quick, easy and efficient. Everything was done online and payment came via Paypal. I would recommend this insurance to everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to post about your experience.We are very happy to hear that your claim experience went both smoothly and quickly.
We appreciate your frequent patronage and look forward to insuring all your future travel.
Thank you again, and have a great day!
Purchased a Travelex policy for a cruise this year. Unfortunately I had to cancel 1 day prior to departure due to medical advice from my daughter’s PCP. First step was to call Travelex to confirm coverage. While it was easy to make contact, they would not confirm that my circumstances fell within the scope of a valid claim. Representative spoke in general terms. I asked them to go ahead and begin a claim. I received an email shortly afterwords that explained the claim process.
Initially the documentation requested seemed a bit overwhelming. My submitted claim was 14 pages including documentation from doctor, receipts, cruise documents etc. Travelex allows up to 1 year to submit this documentation. Once I gathered all documentation I scanned and emailed my claim on a Monday evening, I received an email on Friday that my claim had been accepted and would be paid. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the quick turnaround! Honestly I expected a reply with a few hoops I needed to jump through to complete my claim.
I have read many of the good and bad reviews concerning travel insurance. The common denominator in all reviews is due diligence or lack thereof. Folks that read policy documentation and have a general idea of what was covered and what was not seem to have more favorable reviews. I will certainly use Travelex for my future insurance needs. The policy was competitively priced with comprehensive coverage. Claim process was less tedious than expected and quick.
A friend of mine recommended travel insurance for my 3 week trip to Southeast Asia. I did my research and decided on Travelex. It was a smart decision. The last leg of my trip back home from Hong Kong to LAX was canceled due to mechanical problems. I lost my connection from LAX to Tampa. I had to rebook that flight at a cost of $500. I filed all the proper paperwork with Travelex and they reimbursed me promptly. You can be sure I will get another policy with Travelex for my next international trip!
Thank you so much for your kind words.
It’s important to our company to hear that our claims processes are fair and reimbursement for losses are received promptly.
Thank you again and we look forward to insuring all your future travel!Kind Regards,
Last month (March 2019) my wife and I began what was supposed to be a two-week vacation in Thailand. Two days after arriving in Bangkok, I was diagnosed with double pneumonia and was hospitalized there for 13 days. The physician required me to rest a few days after discharge before allowing us to fly back to the US. When we returned we filed a carefully documented trip interruption claim for about $10,000 with Travelex on April 9. (An arm of the insurance, On Call International, had already taken care of the hospital bill - quickly and completely, much to our amazement.)
Travelex responded the very next day (!) with an email saying that we would receive a check covering nearly the entirety of our claim. (We are still waiting to hear about one small aspect of the claim.) We received that check today (April 16). Fortunately we have filed very few insurance claims of any kind over our 70+ years, but all of the others have involved initial denials of claims, seemingly unending hassles, etc., before we finally received compensation. This has been a truly extraordinary experience. We will definitely use Travelex for all of our future travel insurance needs.

Son's trip to Washington DC was cancelled due to virus. When we submitted a claim for our money back from our Trip Cancellation and interruption insurance we were denied. We were told it's in the fine print. Don't use this scam company. They clearly prey on school systems for a profit.
Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns on Consumer Affairs.
It is important to note that fear of travel, travel advisories, and destination being inaccessible due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are not covered risks under the Travelex Insurance policy purchased. In order to cancel or interrupt a trip due to quarantine, the traveler or a traveling companion would need to be physically quarantined themselves.
We empathize with your situation and understand that this is a stressful time. We want to assure you that we are committed to doing our very best to assist and offer any accommodations that we can.
We may be able to allow travelers to apply the policy to a new or rescheduled trip at a later date. Please contact Travelex Customer Solutions at 800.228.9792 or email@example.com for further details on this option.Kind Regards,
I wrote a very unfriendly review when I could not get through to this company on the telephone. However, after I did get to talk to an actual person, their performance has been stellar. I feel a little guilty about the first review, as these are crazy times, but in my mind they have redeemed themselves. I would recommend them with the caveat that they are a little overwhelmed on the telephone right now. Of course, I suspect anyone connected with the travel industry is in the same boat (no pun intended).
I don't understand how people could write a positive review when it took me over 25 minutes just for them to answer the phone! What should be a simple thing to fix is still unresolved after two days of "communication". I know it must be a crazy time for them, but my time is valuable too. I could in no way recommend them to anyone. And now I have just been told I have to call them tomorrow, and start all over!
Your phones do not allow for contact. I have tried two different numbers provided by you. Neither will allow contact. I wish to change the dates on a travel policy. I can be reached at **. I should not need to type 200 words to remind you it is difficult to do business with you if your phones do not work.
Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns on ConsumerAffairs.
We are currently experiencing higher than normal call volumes due to Coronavirus, which is resulting in longer than normal wait times.
We have forwarded your information onto our Customer Solutions Department, and have been advised that they will reach out to you today by phone to help change the dates on your policy. You can also email the Customer Solutions Department to request a date change at CustomerSolutions@TravelexInsurance.com.
Thank you again, and we hope you think of Travelex the next time you travel.Kind Regards,
I feel cheated and a victim of fraud. I asked that I be reimbursed for a Tilley Hat that I had either misplaced or had been stolen. The callous and dishonest denial of my claim is uncalled for. This is why so many people feel taken advantage by dishonest insurance companies such as Travelex.
Thank you for taking the time to post on Consumer Affairs.
We have contacted the Claim Administrator, on your behalf, and been advised that only one claim has been submitted, which has been approved and reimbursed for.
If you would like to submit an additional claim, for reimbursement on your hat, please contact the Claim Administrator, Monday – Friday, 7:00 am - &:00 pm CST, at 1-855-205-6054 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Kind Regards,
This was my first time buying travel insurance and submitting a claim. Travelex timely processed my claim and paid the claim out in full promptly. I highly recommend this company. The pricing of the policies are also very fair. They have different policies to choose from based upon your circumstances. This is worth purchasing especially given all the news going on.
