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.

I was lucky to have not use the insurance. It was very comforting to know that I had insurance if something did happen.

for a trip to Argentina. Argentina.
The trip included a
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.

I appreciated the option "cancel for any reason". This was priced as a reasonable option and was the main reason I chose this insurance.

You should allow me as a repeat customer to set up a profile on your site so I can more easily identify the plan (or plans) I have used in the past. This would avoid the need to start every trip from scratch.

for a trip to Kenya. Kenya.
The trip included a
Global Alert! Preferred
Global Alert! Preferred plan is a good value but the coverage is secondary to any other policies you may have. For trip cancellation or interruption it is fine but the claim process I went through last year when I did have a claim was excessive. They even required a copy of my credit card statement as proof that I had purchased the policy even when I had gone through InsureMyTrip to purchase it! Medical coverage for the USA and Canada would have easily been covered by my own medical insurance policy as primary but not in other countries. Therefore, I would recommend purchasing a primary travel insurance policy to cover even clinic or outpatient visits in Europe, Africa, Asia or the like. Most foreign clinics and hospitals will require payment in cash for services so at least a quick cash advance should be provided in a travel insurance policy. Will not likely use Global Alert! Preferred again due to the limitation in primary coverage for foreign travel.
Doreen H. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
