Terrible

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.

THEY ARE UNETHICAL AND TERRIBLE.

I made a claim for very damage suitcase.
Because I did not have a receipt for a 4 year old suitcase, they refused to horror my claim.
This is unethical. Show details

Being a Vietnam veteran obtained travel insurance through APOD. Insurance cover and premium cost were to my liking. Show details

Medical claim problem

Lodge medical claim through internet is very difficult and not successful. As the time limit of claim in 28 days, I worried about the deadline. Finally, I email your company and get the Claim Form to process the claim and finally. There was a lot of documents needed. It is sometime impossible to show the expense in bank statement as the medical fee is paid by cash because some doctor overseas did accepted credit card payment. Please make the claim simple and user friendly Show details

Great Service with a claim

I have Multiple Myeloma and a long list of pre existing conditions that were covered. I also claimed on this policy due to one of those conditions without any hassle. Easily claimed online with no fuss. Show details

Clear and easy coverage

I have used Insureandgo for several overseas trips. Now, do note, I have not had to make any claims as yet, which is great, but so this review is about the product itself.
I keep coming back to this company for my insurance needs, due to their easy yet comprehensive medical screening to ensure we are covered for our pre-existing conditions. I find the information provided to be very clear and upfront about what we are and aren't covered for. The price paid for the coverage given is very competitive and I like that there are multiple options available to cover for your own risk level. Based on my experiences to date, I believe if I did need to make a claim in future, this company would be fair to deal with. Show details

Very smooth claims process

Can’t fault this company. Our claim was approved and settled within 1 day and the reimbursement for our medical bills were back in my account within 6 days. Super easy to deal with, won’t go anywhere else. Show details

Shameful service and follow up

Steven is my husband who died while travelling in Japan. His death and the repatriation of his body formed the basis of this claim.
It was a very difficult and traumatic experience dealing with your claim personnel and I’m still recovering from this experience. Your customer service was appalling.
The fact that you have now sent a request for him to review your performance shows the quality of your insurance product.
You should be ashamed. Show details

Covid in Hawaii - great service!

When my husband was hospitalised in Hawaii with covid, I called insureandgo straight away. The people who were on the other end of the line were fabulous. I gave them my details and they were able to get the ball rolling immediately. They continued to be courteous and supportive whilst he was in hospital and the communication was excellent. Show details

Great experience in setting up the insurance and what is covered

This is the first time I have used Insure and Go, they have been easy to deal with so far and have also provided cover for us with some pre-existing health issues. We travel regularly so if this works for us we will use them again, so far very smooth, very impressed. Show details

Insureandgo is easiest to understand what you are getting

Comparing travel insurance alternatives is both complex and difficult. I choose Insureandgo because it was the easiest to assess what was included without endless extra cost of the alternatives and not being 100% of what I was getting. Show details

My husband and I have booked a trip to Japan for March 2024 and airfares are included. If we should have connecting flights, and were to miss a connecting flight, would we be covered under the insurance policy we plan to choose? Thanks, Kathryn

They wouldn’t “actually” pay out so don’t bother

Even if the airline canceled, goes bankrupt or decides to not refund, InsureandGo will still not reimburse you regardless of what their website says!
