    AIG Travel Guard Direct Basic Plan

    I purchased AIG/Travel Guard travel insurance in Dec/2019 for a flight I was taking in late Jan/2020. I had to cancel my trip because of complications arising from my dads death last year. I cancelled my flight and was told there would be a penalty of $200 with the airline but that my flight insurance would cover the cost. I phoned AIG/Travel Guard insurance and they said I would have to file a claim with them. I looked at the claim and they wanted my dads death certificate and social insurance number. Why the heck do they need that stuff? I spoke to a lawyer about this and he stated that I didn't have to give that info to some unknown insurance firm. I called AIG/Travel Guard back, told them I would not be providing that info to them and I would just like to cancel the insurance and get my money back. But no, seems you can only cancel within the first 2 weeks, even though the confirmation email they sent me states "Your policy will be refunded if your trip has not started and you have not made a claim." I am currently working with my CC company to dispute their charge. Why buy trip cancellation insurance if it is only good for 2 weeks. I would suggest to anyone to find another travel insurance company.

    In the 2000s, AIG is quite good but now their service is suck and expensive. I have lots of bad experience with their customer services as well. My Car insurance was with AIG. Recently I met an car accident which another car bump into my car. I called up AIG and told them I have video footage evident and asked them if they were supposed to engage a lawyer for this issue but to my surprise their replied is "No". This ended up I got to engage a lawyer but I luckily managed to win this case. Fyi guys, my friend told me other insurance companies will engage a lawyer if you have the video footage. He also met an accident last year but his insurance company engage a lawyer for him without him worry. Lastly, not recommend you to buy AIG insurance unless otherwise.
