ABOUT 

 

The CruisingReview.com website originally started off as a project to develop a comprehensive travel review blog based on Filemaker database software (databases are the best way to organize huge amounts of data such as photos and reviews), but then became a passion - after all who doesn't like traveling ? In my travels, I met many inspiring people, who encouraged my passion for inventing, and thus led to my developing alternative energy systems and concepts.

Pepe is a fan of Nicola Tesla, innovator in the world of alternative energy, CO2 mitigation, inventions, travel reviews (for fun), a commercial pilot, a sailor, and an expert in Filemaker database development. My motto is never stop exploring, and always keep learning. The journey is the destination.

 

JetSetCruise (travel review blog site of CruisingReview.com) originally was set as the travel planning site for Bora Bora Cruises. Unfortunately, the wonderful super-yacht cruise company in French Polynesia went out of business. We are now making JetSetCruise a live update to our travel site, CruisingReview.com

 

You will note that our website is free of advertising, junky social media tags, and annoying pop-ups. You can help support this site by telling the resort and cruise ship company that you saw them reviewed here. Or you can visit our travel store on Amazon.

 

When funding becomes available, I hope to develop and build a eco-electric-ship (catamaran or Proa) which is fully sustainable for tourism, to travel the globe. Based on the book and community Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World, I hope to evangelize solar technologies, and sustainable tourism, with zero environmental impact (actually will enhance the environment) around the world. When ready, the concept of a eco-ship will be showcased at a new website, ElectricShip.com

 

From time to time we also include some experimental SEO experiments, such as our Search Engine, which searches for PDF publications on a subject (as shown below) and then refers back to the website for enhanced metrics and better visibility for Google and other search engine spidering and page ranking.

Don’t Use AIG Travel Insurance: On a recent trip to Tahiti, we had a travel delay and paid for a premium travel insurance policy. Our aircraft had a mechanical (guess what, that’s not covered), and the delayed trip policy only paid $100 a night for the resort. Our resort was $2,000 a night. The travel insurance from AIG is a complete waste of money (policy was $1,400) for the luxury trip. I would recommend you purchase a annual policy from another company, which specifically focusses on medical evacuation only.  A annual policy is around $150-200 total. Skip the other forms of insurance, since you won’t get paid on a claim. Also keep in mind that many insurance groups make your homeowners or renters insurance to pay first, and they are secondary. Again, it’s a waste of money.

 

Note: If you have had a similar experience with travel insurance, especially with AIG Travel Guard, please email me. I’ll post your review. If we can get a few more people that have been treated similarly poorly, lets get a class-action suit going and get the word out not to use them.

20170424: AIG Insurance Update - AIG is going to pay me a whopping $100 for my travel delay, that's it. It turns out that AIG Travel Insurance doesn't cover aircraft mechanical issues (probably one of the most common reasons for a trip delay), and the maximum on their policy for hotels is just $100 per day. Not much if you're traveling to any resort in French Polynesia (the missed night at the Four Season's was $2,000). The bottom line is that travel insurance may be good for medical evacuation if you don't have that on your primary insurance, which may be homeowner, renter, or medical insurance (get a quote based on a $100 trip cost, since it's the same evacuation insurance regardless of trip value - and just get a yearly policy for around $200 which covers all trips), but is completely useless for your other travel needs. For medical evacuation, it's to the nearest medical facility, not back home. The AIG Policy was around $1,500 for this trip, and completely useless. Also, in any insurance claim, they may force to you first use your home owners or renters insurance policy first, and theirs as a backup.

 

From the Insuremytrip.com website: Secondary Coverage means that this coverage will be paid after any other Primary collectible insurance has paid the claim and the Primary policy limits have been exhausted. And if you're paying for luxury travel (charter, business or first class) they will only reimburse you for economy (assuming they decide to even pay at all).  

 

20170501: The director of claims called to discuss my claim. If you need to contact her, her number is 715-295-5993. She said that AIG pays over 90 percent of its claims. When I asked for evidence of that, and to what amount is paid for a claim (i.e. $1.00 or requested claim amount), the request was refused. When I asked how many people buy insurance, versus how many claims are filed, that request was refused too.  

 

Again, AIG insurance is a waste of money. I'll never use AIG again, and I don't recommend them to anybody for travel insurance. At least they're quick and efficient to minimize or deny your claims. Your next step is to request a refund on your policy, if you are a unhappy customer, since they claim *Satisfaction Guaranteed*  - you can email them at refunds@aig.com
