Murrells Inlet, SC asked in Consumer Law, Business Law and Collections for South Carolina

Q: If I was told an insurance package would cover my vacation from any pandemic related issues and now they won't pay.

Travelocity sold the vacation to me in spring 2021, and told me I was covered from any pandemic related issue but I didn't read the fine print and now AIG will not reimburse me and Travelocity only offered credits I cannot use.

A: "I was told". "I didn't read the fine print".

These are the 2 biggest errors people make when they enter into any contract. The only thing that matters in a contract is what is on paper, not what you were told. Not reading the contract, including the fine print, is on you, and you know that already (I'm not trying to beat a dead horse). You didn't ask a specific question. There's really no getting around the fact that the contract says what it says, whatever that is. We can't read the contract online, so you'd have to take it to an attorney for an analysis. For all we know, AIG is not interpreting the contract correctly.
