The Preferred plan offers comprehensive travel insurance benefits for United States residents traveling domestically or internationally.

Trip cancellation and trip interruption coverage is available if you have to cancel or interrupt your trip due an unforeseen covered event.

Some covered reasons for trip cancellation and interruption include:

  • unforeseen illness, accidental injury or death to you, your traveling companion, family member or business partner
  • a terrorist attack in a city listed on your itinerary
  • bankruptcy and/or default of your travel supplier which occurs more than 15 days following your effective date

You can see the complete list of covered reasons for cancellation and interruption within the plan certificate.

The Preferred plan also includes emergency medical evacuation. If you should become ill or injured while traveling, this coverage will ensure that you are being treated by the most qualified medical facility available to you. Unlike many comprehensive travel insurance plans, this plan includes a Hospital of Choice benefit. This benefit will allow you to decide which hospital you would like to be transported to, provided the assistance company and attending physician agree it is right your condition.

There are other valuable coverages on this plan such as travel delay, missed connection, baggage, medical and emergency medical evacuation.

We had to cancel the trip to to a medical problem my wife experienced. We had a no pre-existing condition clause included in the policy. I submitted all of the requested documentation including copies of credit card statements, a letter from the doctor and an attending physicians statement that the doctor completed. Even with all of this they fought paying out the claim. They kept making excuses and asking for more documentation. Three months after I filed my claim, I finally contacted InsureMyTrip and was provided with an advocate to assist me in getting my claim resolved. The advocate called me 1 day after I contacted her and told me that my claim was resolved and I would have a check within a week. I only wish I had asked for assistance sooner. Thanks to their help, I will buy all of my travel insurance from InsureMyTrip.
We filed a claim when my husband took ill while we were on vacation in South Africa. TripMate, the insurance company behind Global Alert, took a very long time to process our claim after we returned home and filed the claim. Additionally, TripMate told us the medical coverage was secondary to our health insurance when that was not the case; TripMate should have paid the hospital directly, which they did not, so we had to pay out of pocket and then recover the hospital and medical expenses. We have finally received full payment for the claim but that happened only after the folks at InsureMyTrip got involved. The Customer Care department of InsureMyTrip is wonderful and they contacted TripMate on our behalf until the claim was finally paid. If you have a problem with any policy sold by InsureMyTrip, they will stand behind it! To summarize - I do not recommend TripMate or Global Alert insurance based on our experience but I definitely do recommend InsureMyTrip.
