Sneaky Premium Raises
I choose Traveler's because through my company I would get a discount and get an additional discount if I added payroll deduction with it. After being a loyal customer for 5 years, they raised my rates to over $740 per 6 months. When I finally realized, I went to cancel and they offered no discounts and almost gave me a "good job, you caught us". Guess they figured if they explained then they would admit over charging.
We recently had storm damage to our roof and Travellers came out right away, assessed the damage, and issued a check within a week. couldn't be happier with their fast response and service!
Poor Customer Service
My experience with their home insurance: horrible customer service, incredibly lengthy claims process, constant employee turnover, and consequently: incompetence.
Sell Totaled Cars
Our son had an accident. He ran into the car in front of him and bashed in the front of the car, but was still able to drive the car home. Traveler's said the car has $8000+ damage and wants to say that it is totaled. They wanted to have the car fixed and then SELL IT BACK TO US. They did the same thing to us with two other cars, a Blazer and a Land Cruiser, both of which could have been fixed. They just want these cars to sell.
I was involved in an accident on black ice. They are not local here and I had Medical of $10,000. The rep told me to go to a doctor to get my injuries checked out and now they are backtracking saying that they won't cover ANY medical bills.
Low-Ball Total Loss Estimate
I was rear-ended by a driver who is covered by a Travelers policy. I still don't have my car back. Travelers took nearly two weeks ago to inspect and once they did they determined it could be repaired, so I had it towed to a collision center. Then, two weeks later still, upon further inspection, Travelers determined the vehicle was a total loss. Further, they indicated that they could not pay me the value of the vehicle because their policy holder had a limited collision coverage policy! This left me with the unenviable choice of either accepting thousands less for my car than its worth, or using my insurance company to repair my vehicle. Travelers has been completely inflexible and unsympathetic throughout this entire ordeal.
Parking Lot Damage
I was hit in a parking lot by a pick-up truck which was insured by Travelers. I was pulling out of my space when he side-swiped me as he was barreling in for a parking space. I filed a claim and they informed me I was the sole cause of the accident and they refused to pay me the damages, even though they sent out an adjuster and got my hopes up that the damages would be repaired. I carried no collision on my car.
Fought Tooth & Nail Over $54!
The body shop needed an extra day to get my car ready, but the Travelers claim handler refused to cover the rental for the extra days (it entailed a weekend). The additional rental for 2 days was $54. The body shop stepped in and said they'd cover the rental charge.
Canceled But Paying
After I cancelled my coverage with Travelers, they tried to charge me $240 for seven days of coverage.
For no reason they decided to drop one of my properties because there was a gap in the back door. The reality is that a contractor replaced the door with a glass door due to lighting but didn't have time to caulk the top of the frame.
