After a long battle with me having to "prove" my DCL Alaska cruise was cancelled "by DCL", they did come through and refunded my Policy premium. Next cruise I will buy from them again.

    Please see the response from Generali:

    "We are sorry the plan did not meet your expectation. We design our plans with today's travelers in mind, keeping the cost within reason and providing coverage for the main reasons you may have to cancel. Unfortunately, like other insurance plans you have, travel insurance cannot cover everything. In the event that you have additional information that was not previously submitted, showing that your loss was due to one of the Covered Events in the policy, you may submit this information via our eclaims portal (https://travelinsurance-us.eclaims.csaclaims.com) for further evaluation of your claim.

DON'T USE GENERALI. Pay a little more and get AIG, Allianz or someone else.
Our Generali policy was a cruise in Tahiti in March. I could not get anyone to answer the phone in 25 calls. When I did get a response to an email after 2 weeks of trying, they said I had to pay 40% more to change the dates to next year for exactly the same coverage with no changes other than the date.
AIG easily switched the policy dates for another trip I had planned so they are by far the better company.

GENERALI is a rip-off and InsuremyTrips shouldn't even show them as an option.

File a claim when cruise cancelled, no response for over a month. Emailed and quickly told not covered due to virus not being a covered reason. I think they could be a little more understanding in this time.

We filed a claim on 3/21/20. My husband hurt his back and was not able to travel to Chile as planned. We got an email on 3/30/20 that we would get another email when our claim person was assigned. We haven't heard anything since. We tried calling and you get an answering machine. I realize they have a lot of claims due to Covid but ours isn't and it is 6 weeks and they said they would respond in 30 days. We are very disappointed. We have bought trip insurance for years and this is the first time we had to use it.

We were told after we filed our claim that the maximum benefit they could give us was $300.00 Our expenses were more than that for the extra day. We paid almost that much for the insurance, so I guess we almost broke even. It was very difficult to file a claim. I spent hours doing it as I am no computer expert and it was hard to provide all the receipts. I don't think it was worth it in the long run.
