THE AGENTS WERE VERY COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL WHEN I INQUIRED ABOUT YOUR VARIOUS PLANS AND WAS ABLE TO PURCHASE ONE THAT SUITED ME. IT GAVE ME A PEACE OF MIND KNOWING THAT IT WAS AVAILABLE IF NEEDED. HOWEVER, I AM THANKFUL THAT EVERYTHING WENT WELL AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO USE IT.

This is the fourth or fifth time I have purchased this insurance and although I have never needed to use it, I travel with confidence that it is there if I need it. The transfer of risk to the insurance company puts my mind at eases.

We canceled a trip to Australia in the 90+ day time frame required by our tour operator, we received the appropriate 90% refund from the tour operator, and submitted a claim to Trip Mate, Inc., which handles claims for Global Alert, for the 10% penalty we incurred. Ultimately, we received payment from Trip Mate about 4 months after the claim was submitted (all required documentation was submitted with the initial claim). While we did receive the correct amount under our travel policy, the way the claim was handled was ridiculous! (1) You can't get in touch with Trip Mate with one phone call, as they don't answer their phones. Rather, you must wait to receive a call back the next day. (2) We received Trip Mate's checks quite a long time after submitting the claim (3 months), but at least we did receive them. (3) When we DID receive the checks and deposited them in our bank, the bank notified us a couple of days later that both checks hand BOUNCED!!! Fortunately, we hadn't written checks against this deposit, but we did incur $38 in bank fees because of the bounced checks. Trip Mate advised we could submit a claim for refund of the $38, which we did, but we haven't received it yet. (4) After four calls to Trip Mate trying to straighten this out, we received conflicting information from different agents. Very frustrating. We purchase travel insurance almost every year. The next time we do so, we will check first to see if Trip Mate is involved in the claims processing. If they are, we will purchase our travel insurance elsewhere!

Thankfully, we didn't have to use our trip insurance, so I can't comment on the actual processing of a complaint. But the agent who helped me pick the plan was very knowledgeable, professional, and prompt in addressing my specific needs.

I’ve never gotten trip insurance before, but the last out-of-country vacation I was on, a man we met suddenly got deathly ill and had to be evacuated. It was an immense help to his wife that he had trip insurance so she had one less worry. After witnessing that, it gave me peace of mind to have trip insurance myself this time, tho I’m very glad I didn’t need to use it!

Fortunately, I did not need to use the policy so It is difficult to rate. the rate is comparable to other plans.

of course I cannot evaluate insurance that I did not use. that's the point. I was adequately covered in case I needed it, but didn't!
