C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector
I am very disappointed with C&F Travel Insured International. I fractured my ankle while on vacation, an unstable bimalleolar ankle fracture that needed surgery, but when I contacted them for assistance to return home early I was told I would have to cover the cost (between $6,000-$11,000) and then their medical professionals would determine if it was considered an emergency to them thereby qualifying for reimbursement. Unfortunately they would not or could not tell me if it was an emergency to them until after I was home.
As I opted not to chance the added expense of the high prices to come home early, (risking delayed surgery), I attempted to make the best of it by renting a wheelchair to be pushed around town. However, again I was told it was not covered unless I had a doctor's prescription. Unfortunately at that point I had moved on with our itinerary and was no longer in contact with the Emergency Room Physician.
Of course, it goes without saying that the taxi from the Emergency Room to hotel, the taxi to go one block from hotel to a scheduled shuttle, and the taxi to get the wheelchair delivered wasn't even considered.
I truly feel I was in a bait and switch situation with the airfare (my own airline to get home early was $3000 with my own search) and C&F Travel Insured would do anything not to pay out in assisting me during a personal crisis.

I had to file a claim when AA canceled my flight a few hours before my trip. I contacted C&F Travel Insured, and after my cruise l sent in the paperwork needed. It took about a month, but I received a call today stating l would have a check in about a week. Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, l think that is a wonderful turn around. Thank you!

SAVE YOUR MONEY...Due to the Coronavirus, we were told to purchase the extra coverage for Cancel for No Reason. We had to head home early from our trip to Cartagena, Columbia due to different reasons within our group of 8. IE:
-The couple paying for the villa had to leave due to a babysitter issue at home
- I started with a horrible headache, chills, sore throat, ear ache (visited doctor same day I got back and was diagnosed with flu, strep throat and an ear infection)
-airlines that 4 of the people in our group were booked with started cancelling all flts
-we couldn't get a hold of our airline
-owner of the villa we were staying "recommended we leave" as she couldn't guarantee she could keep it staffed
-another member of our group re injured a previous injury/surgery to her hamstring and was immobile.

Thus being said, the insurance is claiming this is all Coronavirus issues and will not honor any of the contract including Trip Interruption.
I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT WE WE UNABLE TO REACH INSUREOURTRIP BEFORE MAKING THE DECISION TO LEAVE AND FOR 5 DAYS AFTER OUR RETURN

    Thank you for your feedback.

    We are sorry to hear you had trouble getting in touch with us and that your trip was interrupted. Our call volume in March topped out around 200%. We would also like to advise that when on a trip needing assistance, you will want to call the provider's 24 hour assistance line. As brokers we will not be able to assist you in this situation.

    Please see the response from C&F Travel Insured regarding your review:

We missed our scheduled connection at CDG by 8 minutes. As a result, our flight to NAP was delayed 12 hours. We filed a modest claim along with required supporting documentation for the extra costs (~$150) we incurred due to the long delay and our full claim was paid within thirty days of submission. While the insurance contract contains many limitations and exceptions, and the supporting claim documentation required was not insignificant, we would recommend this travel insurance company based on our positive experience. They are a reputable business.

My wife and I were on a land and sea vacation with Princess Cruises. My wife became ill the last 3 days on the Coral Princess. We had to see the doctor at 3:45am. When we returned home I submitted the appropriate paper work required by C&F Travel insurance. Three weeks later I received an email from them stating that they approved our claim and a check would be sent to us in about on week. Glad we purchased the travel insurance. We have purchased travel insurances in the past on many of our trips and never used it. On this trip it paid off!!
We did pay for the option of making this insurance our primary so we did not have to submit multiple paperwork. One negative comment is that when submitting documents via email to C&F you can only send a maximum of a 12mb file which was not stated in there forms. I had to submit 2 different files.
I would recommend C&F Travel Insured International Worldwide Trip Protector. In my case, they came through!

We had no issues on the trip so we did not file a claim, so I can't really speak to the quality of the plan or the customer service. I will say that we had good communication from the company through the process and with the mobile app felt like if there was a problem we could make contact easily.

We didn't have to use the plan so I only have experience with my interactions during ordering the plan. Everyone was professional and willing to help during the process. Thankfully, we didn't need to use the insurance so I can't address that area.
