    AIG Travel Guard Direct Enhanced Plan

    The claim procedure is easy. I was sick when I was overseas. I came back to Singapore and went to see doctor 2 days later. They allowed me to claim although I did not furnish a medical report from the doctor. I just submitted the clinic's receipt to make my claim.

    AIG Travel Guard Direct Basic Plan

    [Claims Process] I have lost my valuable items including passport in Austria in 2018 due to theft, and have made claim from AIG for the loss. The claim was smooth, quick and good; and eventually gotten the claim pretty easy and quick.

    AIG Travel Guard Direct Basic Plan

    DON'T USE THEM ... I was totally disappointed with this company. they refused to pay my claim ,hiding behind small unjust conditions in their policy. would not refund anything when the whole world is shut down by the covid 19 virus. Any company can promise great service... but paying, doing the right(just) thing and helping is not important !!! They very slow to respond to any of my emails and had to be chased up everytime to get anything other than automatically generated responses.

    AIG Travel Guard Direct Standard Plan

    AIG was very responsively quick in processing my claims for baggage damage and missing baggage cover. No hassle and no fuss and the claims were reimbursed promptly (less than 5 days). What is even more significant is that my claims were easily submitted online. Very user friendly submission process.
