Follow us on LinkedIn

If you have a complaint about your travel insurance policy, where do you turn? The answer is the Travel Insurance Ombudsman. This is an organization that was set up to help consumers resolve disputes with their travel insurance company. In this blog post, we will discuss how to file a complaint with the Travel Insurance Ombudsman, and what to expect once you have done so.

How to file a complaint?

The first step is to contact the travel insurance company that you have a complaint against. You should do this in writing, and include as much information as possible about your complaint. The company will then have a chance to respond to your complaint. If you are not satisfied with their response, or if they do not respond at all, you can then file a complaint with the Travel Insurance Ombudsman.

To file a complaint, you will need to fill out a form on the Travel Insurance Ombudsman website. This form asks for basic information about your complaint, as well as contact information for both you and the travel insurance company. Once you have submitted the form, an investigator will be assigned to your case.

The investigator will then contact the travel insurance company and ask for their side of the story. They will also request any relevant documentation, such as your policy documents or correspondence with the company. Once the investigator has all of this information, they will make a decision about whether or not your complaint is valid. If they find that it is, they will work with the travel insurance company to try to resolve the issue.

What else can you do?

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint, or if the Travel Insurance Ombudsman is unable to reach a resolution, you can then file a claim in court. However, it is important to note that this is the last resort, and should only be considered if all other options have been exhausted.

You can also file a complaint with state regulators or the Better Business Bureau. However, these organizations will not have the same authority as the Travel Insurance Ombudsman, and will not be able to force the travel insurance company to take any action.
