Global Alert Preferred Plus

The Global Alert Preferred Plus plan offers the same types of coverage as the Preferred plan, but with higher limits. Highlights of this plan include:

  • Cancel for Any Reason is included with the plan if purchased within 15 days of the initial trip payment (and all other eligibility requirements are met).
  • Rental Car coverage, which covers damage done to a vehicle that you rent during the trip.
  • Comprehensive trip cancellation and interruption coverage which includes coverage in the event you are traveling during Hurricane Season to an area that is typically affected by Hurricanes. This plan allows you to cancel the trip if there is a hurricane warning issued by NOAA within 24 hours of your scheduled departure date. There are other provisions that need to be met for this coverage, but it gives you the choice whether you want to take the risk and travel to your destination or not.
  • As with the Preferred plan, this plan also offers non-medical emergency medical evacuation benefits. Once you make arrangements with the assistance company (listed in the policy) the plan covers up to $25,000 to get you to the nearest place of safety or to your home if you must leave your trip for a covered reason such as, a recommendation by local authorities, a natural disaster or civil, military or political unrest.

Along with the coverages mentioned above, there is also coverage for travel delay, baggage and accidental death & dismemberment.

Global Alert!
Preferred Plus
The good news is that Global Alert paid the trip cancellation benefit, as they were supposed to do. The bad news was that it took 77 days from the day they received my claim to the day I received the check. I had to call them 7 times to try to keep moving things along. Each time they would promise to do something by a certain date, and then would fail to do it. I finally called InsureMyTrip and got a Claims Advocate to intervene. The Claims Advocate was so helpful and so responsive. With his help, things finally got done.

It was peace of mind. I will refer a family member and friends for future travel.

Didn't need to file a claim. I just wish it was a bit cheaper but that is just me trying to pinch my pennies.
