Exceptional Service -could not recommend more highly!
My parents, husband and myself have used RACV Travel insurance before, but have never needed to claim on it. It is very easy to take out and very reasonably priced in comparison with other companies. Unfortunately in this instance my Father passed away 2 weeks before we were due to go on a cruise together. The documentation was very easy to fill out and there was some simple communication to and fro so that they could get the required documents. We were all fully covered and refunded in a very timely manner.
Refused claim for damaged laptop
My laptop was damaged during a cruise. I have no idea how. They refused to pay given the laptop left my possession, being when I had to give my luggage to the cruise ship staff upon boarding. No choice but to do this, but that's what they used to get out of paying my claim. After making me get a non refundable quote of $95 for assessing the damage.

Refusal by Tokio Marine to pay my claim
I took out RACV domestic travel insurance. I have 2 car insurance policies with them, and so far it has been good. I have used their member services quite alot, and am very happy with them.

The claim relates to an accident i had, where i was hit by another car. It broke the tail light, and put a sl...
Disgusted with outcome of insurance cover
Spoke with RACV agent on getting travel insurance to cover damage to hire vehicle traveling across northern WA, as the car rental company was charging exorbitant daily rates. We paid the car hire company $6,000 bond for any damage, which was the purpose of the insurance I took out - to insure against any deductions from this bond. Minor damage to bumper ($1,100) - but RACV insurer says the claim must be against an 'excess', not the 'bond' and refuses to payout. Very disappointed.
All good with the exception of the need to increase rental car excess with a separate policy , there should be an option of adjustment without raising another policy,other companies offer this in their policy

On our recent trip to New Zealand my wife fell ill and received treatment and medication from
a hospital clinic in Christchurch New Zealand.

I did contact RACV claims and was sent their claim form which l promptly completed along with Doctors certificates, flight receipts plus other relevant documents. I have rec...
