The plan gave me peace of mind if a medical emergency happened to a loved one and I could not go on the trip.

I would have preferred to be able to insure only a portion of the trip. I would have also preferred to have a larger coverage amount on a single item in my luggage.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. In the future, please call our customer service at 800-487-4722 and a representative can help to find policies that do not require you to insure 100% and have higher per article limits for baggage.

Good option for comprehensive coverage for a week in London. Happily we had no need to file a claim but the plan provided a sense of security that was well worth the price.

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.

We did not need to file a claim, but it gave us peace of mind knowing that we did have coverage if needed. The representative that we talked with before going was very friendly and helpful to us. My son-in-law who purchased from another insurance company said he wished he had known about Global Alert before buying his policy. He paid more and not as good of coverage.

No one can know for sure how good any insurance plan (or any insurance company) is until you need to file a claim for something, which I did not have to do for this trip. Therefore, I cannot honestly or accurately rate whether the plan I purchased is any good or not - and also whether the insurance company offering me the plan is reputable or not. All I can say for sure is that the coverages I wanted were included in the plan I purchased - and the cost I paid for the plan was acceptable to me.

    Since many of our customers agree with you that it is hard to evaluate a plan when you have not filed a claim, we still want to assure you that InsureMyTrip only represents reputable companies. When working up a quote, please note the (1) the Better Business Bureau rating, (2) the customers' reviews and the (3) the AMS Best Rating. Our website now allows you to compare plans based on reviews which was not available when you originally purchased the policy.

    As always, we appreciate your willingness to assist fellow travelers by filing a review.
