Global Alert! Preferred
As with most reviewers, I did not need to file a claim, so I don't know how much hassle it would have been in practice or if I would have recovered as much as I thought I would. However, given the abysmal state of medical care in Laos, where I was traveling, I wanted to make sure I could be evacuated to Thailand for care, if I needed it. I also had a very elderly relative whose health could easily have caused me to have to cancel or abridge my very costly trip. I feel as if I did the best I could to insure against those possibilities, and I found InsureMyTrip.com to be very easy to deal with on the phone. I had to increase the amount of my coverage as I finished travel purchases, and agents on the phone were helpful in making sure I did not buy more coverage than I needed. I will likely use this service again if I travel under similar circumstances.

Thank goodness we didn't need to use any aspects of this plan. I can't really evaluate the plan since we didn't have to make a claim. Seemed like a reasonable price for the coverage.

While we didn't need to use the coverage it was good to know we had it available. The cost was very good for what was covered and we would not hesitate to use this coverage again.

This was a short trip during the winter holiday season. Even a one day weather delay would have cost multiples of the purchase price for the insurance, so this gave me all the peace of mind I could ask for. An agent was very helpful in getting me the exact coverages I wanted; I really liked the personal service.

Not sure how you can rate a plan when you do not file a claim. It seemed to cover the items we wanted, but how do you know until you need to file a claim!

Fortunately we did not have to use our coverage but it was comforting to know that we were covered for the all the important items. We did research on a number of plans and decided this was a good price for the coverage provided.

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.

No need to file a claim, but there was comfort in knowing coverage was there should something unexpected arise.
