They outright reject your claim

on 2020-09-06 04:33:57

I've been in touch with them for the past 6 months to process a trip cancellation policy due to COVID. As per the policy, I am entitled to the claim, the first agent agreed to the claim and he said he will process it. And new agent gets assigned to my case after 2 months and he is asking his fresh set of questions. If you think, you have provided all the documents for processing, they will ask for something else and for every response, we have to wait for 2 weeks and he will ask some thing else unrelated to claim and ask us to provide documents for the same. Good Luck in getting claims processed by them. Horrible experience. In the end, they tire us out.

They will never honor your trip cancellation policy

on 2020-08-12 06:58:38

I purchased trip cancellation insurance for May trip to Israel. Canadian government had a trip advisory policy against travel to Israel because of pandemic. Nevertheless AIG delays and strings me along by requesting multiple certificates, verifications etc. Don't waste your $$$ as multiple reviews show this is their pattern. They rarely honor their contract.
