Extended trip by one day. Global Alert agent was extremely helpful in ensuring that we had complete coverage; gave us specific instructions on how to amend policy, with no additional charge.

Thank you.

Travel insurance for me is rarely used but what I'm buying is peace of mind. I don't want financial considerations to impact medical or family situations so I'm willing to pay a reasonable price for travel insurance. Using InsureMyTrip offers the most choices and is very clear about comparing coverage - a much better purchase experience than tour companies who tend to offer a one size fits all type of travel insurance.

I have in the past used Global Alert many times successfully. Now, I DO NOT recommend them.
I recently took a 4 month trip. I had pneumonia and saw 2 doctors and a hospital, straight illness claim. I filed the claim the day after we returned. (May 3), I was told on May 10th, good to go to process. On May 21st, I called to check on claim, Trip Mate has sold my claim to Broadspire for processing. Trip mate (who legally owns the claim), has no status, the file is closed. Broadspire, is a workers comp processor, does not answer the phone. Leave a message. No Update on my claim. This process started on May 1, 2018, there was no notification, only status update that my claim was closed and no benefits paid.

Who needs this grief, Do not use this company Global Alert, if they are aligned with TripMate. You have no idea what's happening. No idea of claim status. Its been 4 weeks and I have no idea who has the file or when it will be paid.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your review.

    Global Alert, who is no longer writing new travel insurance policies, is in the process of securing a new underwriter. In the meantime, TripMate who previously handled claims for Global Alert, has transferred all responsibilities to Broadspire. You will be pleased to hear that Broadspire was very amenable to expediting your claim.

    Upon receiving your comments, we assigned your claim to Gail who is your Anytime Advocate. Gail contacted Broadspire who assured us that a claims representative would contact you to advise you that she would be processing your claim. If the company has all the documentation, Broadspire should be able to process your payment immediately and send it to management for final review.

    In the meantime, we are publishing your review but request that you let us know once you have received your check. You can call Customer Care weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight ET and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM ET.

Hard to rate the insurance, as I did not need to file a claim.

Had to cancel for medical reasons months in advance and notified hem with two MD documentations & all paperwork immediately in Jan and have finally received two checks just now (after fighting with the help of Insure My trip customer assistants to get as much of my money due (still short $75 they say they do not have to pay). They don't contact you back, they don't follow through and after hours of holding on the phone, they hang up on you and don't call back or finally get a person and they receipt script words to your questions that are the same for everything and don't answer anything you are answering. They didn't approve all charges and then gave me a little of that extra money owed and said that was it. Terrible and lie to me and treated me terrible! Did not follow their contract. Travel multiple vacations ayear and always have insurance and anytime I have gottn sick while on vacation and had medical expenses, had to cancel or anything, it was paid immediately and with no issues from other companies. DO NO USE THEM!!!! THEY DISERVE TO BE SUED AND PUT IN THEIR PLACE WHICH IS NOT ALOWWD TO DO BUSINESS ANYOE AND PAY FOR INTEREST AND SUFFERING OF ALL THE PEOPLE THEY DID NOT DO WHAT THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO OR DO IT IN A TIMELY MANNER.

We did not need to use our insurance however a woman in our our group had a stroke while in Portugal and had to be hospitalized, etc. I do not know who her insurer was but feel that if this had happened to me or my wife we would have been well taken care of by our Global Alert insurance plan.
