How soon after buying a plan can I file a claim?
The plan will go into effect the day after purchase at 12:01 a.m. Any loss that occurs before that time will not be covered under the plan. If you are unsure of your effective date, you may still go through the claims process to determine if you are eligible for benefits.
   
Who do I contact if I have questions about my claim?
You may contact our Claims Department toll-free at 800-541-3522 or via email at claims@generalitravelinsurance.com.
   
What happens once I submit my claim?

Once you submit your travel insurance claim, you will receive an email confirming that we received it, and a dedicated claims team member will manage your case from start to finish. If any additional information is needed, they will contact you.

When you file an eClaim, you can monitor the status of your claim or add required documents at that website.

   
How much time do I have to submit a claim?
Claims need to be submitted within one year after a covered loss, but should be submitted as soon as possible.
