Global Alert Preferred Plus

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

Just as trip cancellation and interruption are included in the plan, so is Cancel for Any Reason if purchased within 14 days of the initial trip payment (and all other eligibility requirements are met). That coverage allows you to cancel your trip for any reason, other than what is listed under the covered reasons, as long as it is more than 48 hours before your scheduled departure.

Unlike the Preferred plan, this plan offers optional rental car coverage which covers damage done to a vehicle that you rent during the trip. This would be good for anyone renting a car to travel to their destination or renting a car once they arrive at their destination. Double check with your rental car company, as sometimes they don’t honor outside coverage for their cars.

Unlike most comprehensive travel insurance plans, the Preferred Plus plan includes a pre-existing condition waiver as long as your plan is purchased prior to or within 24 hours of your final trip payment (available in most states). A pre-existing condition waiver will allow you emergency medical coverage while traveling, regardless of any prior medical events in your medical records.

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

I had a medical problem which prevented me from going on my vacation. When I called Global to cancel my plan I was told I had to cancel within two weeks of my signing up. I called over a month before my trip and was shocked by the refusal to cancel my trip insurance since I was not going on my trip and would not file a claim. This is bad customer relations and I will find another trip insurer in the future.

I purchase an emergency cover insurance plan for myself and my two toddlers, 2 and 4 years old for our 1 month vacation to Brazil.( from Global Alert) Unfortunatelly I had to use the insurance with them both . They got a very bad Virus during our vacation and the yougest even end up a few hours at a local hospital for tests and hydration. As soon as I came back to the US I filed the claim which was pretty easy. It took 1 month for them to send a response and the money for the claim. They used a very high dolar conversion and paid me less, $100 pretty much, than I spent in Brazil ( I had to pay the hospital and doctors bills in Brazil and they refund you here later, next time I will choose a plan that pays the expenses for me. ) but overall I am happy that I got this insurance, without it I would have spent much more. You never buy an insurance expecting to use it, but it is very necessary especially when travelling for long periods with kids.

Did not need to use it so don't know about how well the service worked but it was good to know the insurance was there.
