Don't Buy Flight Insurance

Jump to last reply

Burn your money instead. It will be less frustrating and every but as effective. We booked a flight in early December, 2013, insured through Travel Guard (AIG member). On January 7, 2013, the date of our flight, I received a phone call that my mother was gravely ill. I was forced to cancel the flight to comfort my mother. Mom dies a week later on January 13, 2014. I sent a claim form together with a copy of the death certificate and explanation of the events leading up to the concellation. The claim was denied because her date of death was after the fdate of the flight. Seriously? AIG and Travel Guard have perpetuated a fraud and thft by deception. They do not intend to cover anything, unless you the insured happens to die on the date of your flight. And then since you're the insured you won't be alive to file the claim...SAVE YOUR MONEY...SAVE YOURSELF.
