for a trip to United Kingdom. United Kingdom.
Global Alert! Preferred
We are independent travelers. We usually buy trip insurance when we make the first purchase, which is often the air fare. We then add to the coverage as expenses increase for accommodations, train tickets, tours etc. With some companies, that is easy to do online. Global Alert, however, cannot handle these additions either online or with a simple phone call. It requires calling to get an email address or fax number and then a multiple step process to exchange information. We will need to go through this process several times before we are done planning the trip. I wish that we had spent more and selected a company that provides better customer service.

As a nurse, I sometimes have to cancel-its higher than most, but covers more as well as what most do not. Even the airlines recommended you! Peace of mind worth the price. Did not have to utilize services yet.

Although we did not have to cancel the trip and use the plan, it was comforting to know we had an option if Storm Sandy forced us to cancel the trip to New York. Everything went well and would recommend your services to anyone traveling and unsure if circumstances may cause a cancellation.

Shortly before departure, we decided to leave a day early. With the assistance of the folks at InsureMyTrip, the insurer agreed to change the dates of coverage.

Thankfully we didn't have to file a claim on this trip, but we have in the past and have always received fair, prompt payment. I will continue to purchase this coverage for all our trips.

Global Alert! Preferred
Although I have never needed to make a claim, I find that having trip insurance is valuable. I particularly like the cancel for any reason option because the possibility of work or family responsibilities that fall outside the customary coverages provide added insurance that I will not face a loss of my non-refundable pre-payments. The Global Alert Preferred policy provided the best combination of price and bundle of benefits among the CAR coverages that I researched.

Global Alert! Preferred
We had to file a claim. Turns out it was through a third party. We had mixed experiences with various representatives - a couple were understanding and helpful, a couple seemed completely disinterested in assisting and several average. The claim process seemed harder to get through than the two other companies I have had to file claims through in the past - but it might have been my personal difficulties causing me to see this particular claim as onerous. However, there were multiple phone calls - something not necessary with earlier claims. Ultimately, the claim was fully paid, everything we thought was covered was, but the need to have to make multiple phone calls would make me hesitate to use the company again.

for a trip to Argentina. Argentina.

Global Alert! Preferred
We have bought travel insurance several times through InsureMyTrip. Every time it has been easy to locate the best plan (one that provides a waiver for pre-existing conditions) and to buy it. The personnel contacted by phone have always been helpful. It seems to be getting more expensive, but then we are getting older. Fortunately I have never had to file a claim. In this I seem to resemble almost all the folks who post reviews. Last time I looked through 600-some reviews to find a person who had had claim experience. I think I found two -- and one was negative and the other positive. Would like to see more comments from people who have filed claims. The only other criticism I have of the plans is that they seem to be targeted to people who prepay a fixed cost for a trip -- like for a cruise, and not for people who pay as they go and perhaps only have pre-paid costs for air tickets and hotels (although we did have prepaid private tour costs for this last trip, to Patagonia). The only reason we usually get travel insurance is for the medical provisions, since Medicare doesn't cover problems outside the US, and we would want to be flown home if any problem occurred.
