For anyone reading this, please DO NOT ever purchase travel insurance through AIG. I have foolishly done so in the past, and called AIG to ask if I qualified to file a legitimate claim with them on two separate occasions. On both occasions, I was told that I did not qualify. The first occasion involved Hurricane Matthew. I had traveled to Orlando that year, and my family and I had to return home very early due to the hurricane. When I booked the travel, the hurricane had not been forecast. Despite this however, I was told that my trip interruption did not qualify as a "legitimate reason" to file a claim. Then recently, I traveled to Guatemala. I was originally supposed to arrive there within the same day. However, the airline made a change to my flight, and I didn't arrive until the following morning. So that I wouldn't have to spend a night at the Mexico City airport, I booked a night at the hotel across the street. Once again, I called AIG to see if this qualified as trip interruption, and was told that it was not. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that this insurance is a fraudulent scam. After reading many other bad reviews on this insurance earlier today, I will no longer purchase this insurance, and advise all readers to do the same. SIMPLY PUT, DO NOT BUY IT! It is a waste of money, as they will find a "clause", or a reason to justify why your situation does not qualify.
