Didn't have to use the plan - thank goodness. But we came close - We were having dinner on a patio (in South Africa) when our daughter felt a something move against her shoe. She looked down and saw a 5 foot snake slithering over her foot. It was a Puff Ader Viper - the snake that causes the most deaths in Africa.

Global Alert! Preferred
Global Alert is administered by Trip Mate, Inc. which is underwritten by American Modern Home Insurance Company.
We had to cancel our trip due to an injury. Fortunately, we had purchased trip cancelation insurance and had all the medical documentation required to file a claim. However, dealing with Trip Mate was a very frustrating experience. It was hard to contact them, and the claim forms - only available on line- were confusing and could not be completed on line.
We submitted all required paper work by mail, which Trip Mate received on February 9, 2017. After numerous phone calls, being put on hold for almost 20 minutes on several occasions only to be told to leave a call back number (which was not always returned), and two letters, we finally got a check on April 14, 2017. Yes, in the end, Trip Mate/ American Modern Home Insurance Company did cover the expenses incurred when we had to cancel our trip ,which we appreciated. However, it is doubtful that we would have ever purchased this insurance from Insure My Trip if we knew that we would not be dealing directly with an insurance company-Global Alert!- but instead an on-line company like Trip Mate, Inc.

Great service.
Perhaps a call from you at some point would instill more confidence since all of this was done on line.
Otherwise, all is good.

Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Glad I didn't need it, but nice to know it was backing me up. When you have to book international travel months in advance this coverage is good to have. Easy to buy, good terms.

I did not have to use the trip insurance but I was very happy I had the insurance for peace of mind. The very next day after I got home, over 7000+ flights were cancelled due to weather conditions. I would definitely purchase again.

We did not need to file a claim. While the policy is quite expensive, the main reason to buy it was for our peace of mind.
