I purchased the plan after comparing many others online. I liked the coverage and cost and will use Global Alert again.

It is always comforting to know that you have the coverage you need. It is even better when you do not have to file a claim.

Fortunately we had no need for the insurance....a good thing. Reps we spoke to on the phone were pleasant, helpful and very clear about the details. Will use it for next trip.

I don't really know how effective a plan is until I have to file a claim.

As described to me online by a sales agent, I feel the terms for unexpected illness of a relative is too stringent if that relative has chronic health issues. In my case, my brother has cystic fibrosis and is had recently had surgery. Given he's had dozens of surgeries, I was not led to believe any issues he had would've allowed for an early return from the coveted trip. I did not become an issue, but in hindsight I don't think I would've used this coverage again.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this policy.

    The Global Alert Preferred Plus policy provides coverage in the event there is an "Accidental Injury, Sickness or death of You, Your Traveling Companion, Your Family Member, or Your Business Partner"

    "“Pre-Existing Condition” means any Accidental Injury, Sickness or condition of You, Your Traveling Companion, or Your Family Member booked to travel with You for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received within the 180 day period ending on the Effective Date. Sicknesses or conditions are not considered pre-existing if the Sickness or condition for which prescribed drugs or medicine is taken remains controlled without any change in the required prescription."

    At the time of purchase, if your brother was home and stable the pre-existing condition exclusion would not have applied to him. The definition of pre-existing conditions only includes Traveling Family Members. However, if he was currently undergoing any treatment or was hospitalized, a related claim would likely not be covered.

    We always recommend contacting us when planning a trip. Our licensed ages are available 7 days a week and can be reached at 1-800-487*4722.

Glad to have the trip insurance for peace of mind while traveling. Difficult to rate satisfaction as did not have a claim to base it on. However, Customer Care representative was excellent & helpful.

We were going to Paris and London and due to the Westminster Bridge attack and the elevation of the terror level to the highest its been in years I was concerned. My trip was only days away.I called about whether I could change my plans and go somewhere else other then England. I had a non refundable hotel booked there. My plan included "cancel for any reason" but I didn't want to cancel my trip, just change it so I could travel somewhere that didn't just experience 2 terror attacks in 2 months. When I called the women I spoke to basically said there was nothing I could do except cancel everything and forfeit 25% of what the trip cost.
One of the reasons I took out this policy was because of the random terror attacks going on and I wanted to be covered in case something happened. But in my case it was worthless.

    Thank you for your feedback on your policy. Cancel for Any Reason gives the traveler the ultimate flexibility to cancel the trip for any reason, including high-level terror threats or fear of traveling due to terrorism. To use that benefit on your policy, however, you would have to cancel your entire trip no less than 2 days prior to the Scheduled Departure and you would be reimbursed 75% of your non-refundable trip cost.

    If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to help you.

Excellent plan that provided all I wanted in Travel coverage. Lost luggage, last flights, medical and if needed, evacuation coverage. Happily, I did not need any of the services offered. The peace of mind for knowing I had coverage if needed was the greatest benefit.
As for Insure My Trip. The best. One place to review all plans from different companies. This was my second purchase through InsureMyTrip.com and I am very satisfied with them.
Highly recommend both Global Alert and InsureMyTrip. com.

I became sick and was unable to understand the French operators to get a Dr. I called the help number and the women could not understand that I had a number and just wanted her to call it for me. France has a Dr SOS service that will send a Dr to your hotel. She put me on hold for a very long time and I gave up. I walked down the street to a pharmacy and was given a Dr's name and address and we went to his office for care. I had no help from this insurer.
