Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare
We had to make a claim on our plan, and the process was fantastic. I would 100% buy insurance from Birkshire-Hathaway Travel Protection Again.

We were scheduled to spend Christmas and New Years of 2019/2020 in Europe. We'd bought our airline tickets on miles, so initially didn't plan to even purchase insurance. But, then just a couple weeks before departure, I thought, "Well, stuff happens at the holidays and a lot of our accommodations are non-refundable, so maybe I should get a plan."

2-days before departure, one of our family members had an unexpected medical emergency that prevented us from going on the trip, and required emergent surgery.

I contacted BHTP to let them know we were going to have to cancel, and make sure I "read all the fine print" about my responsibilities related to cancellation. The fine print was reasonable, essentially stating that I had to promptly notify all the trip providers that I was canceling, and obtain whatever refund I could.

I did this, by email whenever possible for the purposes of easy documentation, and submitted my initial claim with BHTP.

I then sort of let things slide for a while. Canceling the trip was emotionally stressful, compounded when COVID came a couple of months later and we had to delay the "replacement' trip indefinitely. Our BHTP rep let me know that I had 1-year from the date of the initial claim to finish submitting documentation, and so I took my time.


Finally, last month (November of 2020) I realized I'd been procrastinating for too long and had better act. I collected all the required documentation. Because our trip was booked independently, we had over 10 individual items that we were claiming reimbursement for. AirBnbs, VRBO's, food and city tours, an EasyJet flight and train tickets, and a short-term rental booked direct with a local company.

When I gathered everything together and put it in a PDF, there were over 90-pages of documentation (receipts, cancellation emails, documentation of the refunds we were able to obtain, credit card statements and more) in addition to our actual claim form.

I summarized the charges in an excel sheet, to make life easier for the claims adjuster, and then sent it off.

I fully expected some back and forth, requests for additional documentation or attempts to refuse our claim on some technicality that I'd missed in the fine print.

I got none of that. This morning, about 3-weeks after submitting our final claim form and documentation, I got a notification that the full amount of our claim (Just under $6k) was sent to my Paypal account.

I would 100% purchase trip insurance from BHTP again, in a second. My interactions with customer service reps were pleasant and helpful, their claim process was not burdensome, and ultimately, our claim was paid promptly and without issue.

My claim was initiated 2 and 1/2 months ago. Other than a request for documents, I have heard nothing. You cannot get through to them on the phone, and all you get is a chat bot who provides no response except to direct you to a web page which merely confirms that the documents were submitted. They blame Covid for the poor customer service. Covid is not an excuse for bad customer service. My trip was cancelled by the airlines and I made a claim for nonrefundable costs as per the policy. I would be very hesitant to use them because, if I were stuck on a trip with an actual emergency, how would I get through for help?

The claim took a while, and you could not speak to anyone on the phone. All of my flights were cancelled by the airlines as there were mandatory quarantines in both the USA and our destination countries. I did receive refunds from the airlines but they refused to refund for the other prepaid expenses even though the airlines, and not me, cancelled the trip.

Fortunately, we had no cause to find out how the plan works. As with my car and home insurance, I hope to never have to file a claim. Purchasing the insurance gave me peace of mind while we were on vacation. It was money I happily wasted!

While in Paris, our trip was interrupted due to thefts from pickpockets, but Generali reimbursed us for our losses after we provided them with the police report and copies of receipts/bills verifying the losses.

There were a few unexpected flight delays going to France and coming home but luckily the airlines was able to make provisions without any extra costs. It was peace of mind to having the insurance.

These plans are a sham. I came down with a bad cold in Gunten. We cut our stay short and returned to Paris a day early. Chills fever stuffed up nose aches and pains. The Swiss hotel would not refund the second nights stay, and because I didn’t go to a Dr I can’t file a claim. It’s BS.

Unless you have to actually file a claim, you will never really know, but I was impressed with the parts of the service I did interact with. Given that there was a transportation strike, I was glad I had it.
