Global Alert! Preferred Plus
I had a medical problem which prevented me from going on my vacation. When I called Global to cancel my plan I was told I had to cancel within two weeks of my signing up. I called over a month before my trip and was shocked by the refusal to cancel my trip insurance since I was not going on my trip and would not file a claim. This is bad customer relations and I will find another trip insurer in the future.

Though fortunately I didn't need to file a claim, I valued the peace of mind having the plan. And the price I paid on the phone with the very courteous young lady was lower than the online quoted price.

Luckily I didn't have to use the plan, but it was a great plan at a great price! I would suggest it to any traveler.

Cannot comment on their claim settlement mechanism, as I never filed a claim.

We were fortunate enough to have no health issues on our trip,but our friend had a problem and had to see the ship's Doctor. We were all relieved that we had insurance just in case.

This plan offered 10x the health insurance and medical evacuation coverage than my travel agency at 1/3 less cost. I always purchase this plan through Global Alert. (I've not had to use it and hope to never have to.)

Since we didn't file a claim, it's difficult to honestly review the coverage, but it looked great on paper, and the price was so reasonable.

It is hard to rate something that you did not have to use. Based upon the listed coverage, it was a great value for the fee paid. Customer representative at InsureMyTrip was very helpful in working with me to select this policy.

On a previous trip I had to file a claim which was handled quickly with no problem. No claim this trip but peace of mind knowing I had the insurance.

    Thank you for sharing your comments with your fellow travelers.

    Your last trip, which experienced the claim, was insured through a different provider that was also available with InsureMyTrip. However, you would have been as happy with the service and care provided by Global Alert should you have experienced another claim.
