Global Alert

"Both Global Alert! plans offer unique coverage in regards to hurricanes. They allow you to cancel your trip if there's a hurricane warning issued by NOAA within 24 hours of your scheduled departure, which many other plans don't offer."

Plan covered the essential needs for our cruise, and also the drive down to and back from the port.

This plan was reviewed by my daughter, and we felt it covered me in the event I needed it.

My reservations about GlobalAlert! are not about the actual coverage. Rather, I had issues with TripMate, the company which processes claims for Global Alert and a number of other insurers. They took an excessively long time to process my claim. I initiated the claim on 10/29/14 and was told that they would have it resolved in 15 business days. I supplied them will all requested information in a very timely fashion, as I wanted to be made whole for financial losses I had incurred. I had to call repeatedly and basically become a nuisance to make anything happen. I was told over and over again that my claim was in "expedited" status, meant to make me think that they were trying to push it through rapidly. I was finally notified on 1/8/15 that my claim was settled. This was a day after I threatened to complain to Global Alert. The foot-dragging and excuse-making on the part of TripMate was epic. This should not have been difficult or lengthy. The final information they claim they needed from the airline could have been obtained on 10/30 with a simple phone call or email. In the end, and this reflects positively on Global Alert and the coverage, I was fully compensated for my loss.

We recently used InsureMyTrip to cover a cruise we took over the New Years holiday. We have used them for all of our cruises and its easy, its reasonable and it gives you peace of mind for the added coverage. We will continue to use them for future travel!
