My wife and I were going to be out of the country for a couple of weeks and I needed to find a plan that would cover our travel expenses in case an older family member, who was not going, would prevent us from taking this trip. Most plans' pre-existing condition, would kick in even though that Family member was not insured. That could mean I would not be able to recoup my travel expenses. I needed the assurance that if anything happened, before or during our trip, I would be financially compensated. The people at InsureMyTrip, help me find the right plan.

I had a VERY large kidney stone the week we were scheduled to leave and we had to cancel our trip. I filed a claim for everything that I could not cancel. They paid all of the claim and within a few weeks. I will use them again.

Global Alert! Preferred
After we submitted our claim, with all required documentation, we waited 13 weeks before receiving our checks. Staff at the company handling our claim said that they had a backlog due to a large volume of hurricane-related claims. That may be true, but they should have put on more staff, or taken some other action to increase their claim processing capacity.

    You will be pleased to know that Global Alert / TripMate did follow through on your suggestion to add more staff. However, hiring is only the first step followed by intense and detailed training that spread over several months.

    We are pleased to hear that you did receive your claim checks even though it took 13 weeks. Now that the recent hires have completed training. Global Alert / TripMate claims are being processed on a more timely basis.

Its hard to write a review for a policy you never needed to use however it did provide a piece of mind.

Fortunately we did not have to file a claim, so I can’t really comment on how good you are. But your prices are more reasonable than the plans provided by the tour company.

TruTravel Insurance Premier
We didn’t have to use this, which is a good thing. It gave us peace of mind for our trip to South Africa. We usually purchase travel insurance for our long trips to foreign countries. The cost was very fair and communication was good with TruTravel. We would purchase again for future trips.

Given the odds that the occurence would not occur keeping 25% of the premium for a cancel for any reason coverage is "hoggish"!

Fortunately, we did not have to use this plan but it was the best value for us and it was easy to use the site. I hope, if necessary, the plan would have met our needs.

I never filed a claim and the true test of coverage is what happens when you do. However this policy seemed to provide good coverage at a reasonable price.
