Even though we didn't need to use the service, it was nice having the reassurance of a medical plan.

Thankfully I did not have to claim. But after hours of research my impression was that Global Alert offers reliable coverage. Compared to other plans with similar coverage, I found their pricing competitive based on trip cancellation coverage for inclement weather (I was traveling in snow season) and also medical coverage/repatriation in/from another country. Also, my impression based on reading many consumer reviews was that you should expect a slow process (ie. months) if you have to make any claims other than cancellation of your entire trip. I would also recommend for your own peace of mind to purchase through InsureMyTrip to have an advocate to help and expediate the claims process in the event you do need to make a claim, especially with Global Alert. I hope this helps.

Reasonable coverage to mostly compensate me for trip interruption, weather, lost luggage, missed flight.

Representative was efficient, friendly and satisfied my needs. The price was a surprise, thought it would be more expensive. Felt very secure while on my trip! Thank you. Will definitely get in touch on my next trip.

We could not have been more pleased with our claim results. We had a family death in December and today we received a Full Refund for our claim. Thank you for responding as you did and we will use your insurance again.

Though I did not need to use, the peace of mind as I tread through icy Iceland was worth the reasonable price of the insurance.

Since we had no reason to file a claim, the policy and ease of purchase was excellent!

We had to cancel the trip to to a medical problem my wife experienced. We had a no pre-existing condition clause included in the policy. I submitted all of the requested documentation including copies of credit card statements, a letter from the doctor and an attending physicians statement that the doctor completed. Even with all of this they fought paying out the claim. They kept making excuses and asking for more documentation.

Three months after I filed my claim, I finally contacted InsureMyTrip and was provided with an advocate to assist me in getting my claim resolved. The advocate called me 1 day after I contacted her and told me that my claim was resolved and I would have a check within a week. I only wish I had asked for assistance sooner.

Thanks to their help, I will buy all of my travel insurance from InsureMyTrip.
MICHAEL R. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
