I bought the 4 year coverage 2 years ago for a 3 piece luggage set I needed. I was hesitant as most any other time I’ve bought long-term product protection, turned out I never needed it. But, I went ahead and got it.
Fast forward to two months ago. While not heavy use or overweight, I hit a huge opening in the sidewalk while wheeling the suitcase and, sadly, shredded and broke one of the wheels. I got the insurance info when I got home, went online and filed the claim, ready to go with pictures and everything.
The online claim filing was easy…asked a lot of important questions and when done, clicked submit. I quickly received a Claim number, etc email and was told it could take up to 72 hours to process and for any additional follow up.
ONE DAY LATER. Email lands saying claim was approved and the ENTIRE amount I paid for the 3 piece set, not pro-rated for just the damaged piece, was being sent to me in the form of an Amazon Gift Card. (insert jaw drop here)
I cannot recommend this option enough. And, using the claim funds, bought a new set. And yes, I bought the insurance protection as well!
WELL DONE and THANK YOU!!!

I would not recommend this protection plan to anyone, as the first time the
suitcase was used a wheel came off on the airplane, and the claim was rejected as not covered. Not sure what the plan covers, but paid for the plan specifically for traveling.
Customer Questions & Answers
Are the wheels removable? The Maxlite 4 model did, but these don’t appear removable, making them hard to clean and unjam.
Answer: I have not removed the wheels. However, the Travelpro Maxlite wheels don??t get dirty or jam as my previous (almost two dozen briefcases ??) used to do so often that I cannot believe that the Travelpro doesn??t get grass and dirt in the wheels!
Is this a good carry on bag when I fly international & have a checked bag? For me this would be for toiletries, gifts & a possible change of clothes.
This has been a wonderful carry on bag. I have used it as the only bag I bring for domestic trip and as carry on for international trips. The space is amazing for a bag of this size. I even took it as the only bag for an international trip of only one week. Enough for me to fit in summer clothing and everything else fo??
Does the handle only lock in full pull out position ???
Answer: I returned the suitcase as it was a little bulgy so I do not know about the handle and its lock positions. MJW
