We understand that this is a terrible and difficult time, but we’re here to help and can guide you through the process. Contact the 24/7 Emergency Assistance team. We’ll put you in touch with the necessary authorities and help you make any other arrangements related to the death.
You’ll need copies of the following to submit with your claim, if applicable to your case:
In some cases, we may need to obtain past medical history records from the deceased person’s regular doctor. Our claims department will let you know if that’s necessary.
Gather your receipts, including your itineraries and booking and cancellation confirmations for any travel arrangements that you’ve made. You’ll need to submit these documents as proof for your claim. We reserve the right to reduce or reject your claim if you don’t hand in the proper paperwork.
Read over your insurance policy to see what’s covered and to check if any terms, conditions or exclusions apply. If you have questions about what's covered and not covered, just ask us
