I am trying to purchase travel insurance for my parents who are visiting me for a month. I looked at several insurance policies, and unfortunately I have come across several negative reviews about them. In fact, I have not come across any incident where someone who filed a claim was happy with the services. Can you please explain? Do you suggest I purchase travel insurance from India?
This is a very valid and interesting question. The answer can be lengthy, but I will try my best to keep it brief.Most people do not post reviews when they are pleased with the services they received. On the contrary, they take time to post negetive reviews if they are unhappy. Furthermore, there is no proven, reliable, or trustworthy source where you can find authentic reviews. Visitors' insurance reviews you find online may be hosted by insurance brokers or agents themselves. Such reviews are biased and in most cases, fabricated, or selectively displayed. Since insurance businesses in the US are regulated, you should rest assured that no matter what insurance company it is, it must operate ethically, and provide the services it has promised, else the company would not be in business for long. Most negative feedback is usually about unpaid claims. Such reviews lack details of whether or not the claims made were actually covered in the policy or not. In most cases, negative experiences with insurance policies stem from unreasonable expectations.
