Travel Insurance

How the scam works:

(with video below) Some travel agencies have their agents paid by commission when it comes to medical insurance. Nothing wrong with that, just like in so many other businesses. Oftentimes though, unfortunately, some of these agents trick their customers into buying insurance which they really do not need – or if they do, they could get cheaper elsewhere. They make their quota and get the commission.

According to studies by authorities, over 70% of tourists don’t have the medical insurance details properly explained to them. The fees are just added without a proper explanation and consumers just pay without full knowledge.

On the other hand, when it comes to insurers, the application form that travelers need to fill prior departure is always written in a way that is almost impossible to win the case if they get sick while abroad. While tourists think they are covered, they are actually not.

Watch the video below to see this variation of the Travel Medical Insurance trick exposed.

How to avoid:

Research online the name of the company and find out first if their agents work on commissions when it comes to adding travel insurance to your bill. Always go with trusted sources and organizations.

It is exactly the same with the "extended warranty insurance". It is a rip-off and you don’t really need it.

Yeah, that is true. TravelGuard did nothing for me.

Travel Guard does not honor their policies. I put a claim in. They actually paid a portion of my claim. I asked for the rest of my claim and they told me to give back the portion they already paid. I told them I was going to contact the State Insurance auditor first. Next thing I know, Travel Guard turned me into collections. Avoid travel guard insurance at all costs
