Although I did not have to cancel my trip, I will recommend your coverage to friends and family who have travel plans in the future.

Thank you. I only needed medical coverage, and the price was very fair. I have recommended your plan to several other people who like me do not need travel insurance but like the security of medical coverage in case it is needed..

Was fortunate not to need to use the coverage so I don't know how well a claim would be processed.

Staff at Insuremytrip acted as a middleman, contacting the insurance company to facilitate some response. Insuremytrip staff were responsive and they report global alert says it should have been here last week. Mind you, it is only for a hundred odd dollars and the claim was filed months ago. The form is cumbersome and repetitive and laborious to complete, both the computerized form you have to fill out to ask to enter a claim as well as the claim itself.

While fortunately we did not have the opportunity to use the plan, it was good to know that in case of any problems we had an insurance policy that we could rely upon.

When your away on vacation or traveling in a foreign country you never know when a medical issue will happen. For peace of mind I always buy a medical plan to cover any needs while I am away. In this case Globel Alert. Keep in mind when you need medical help in a foreign country the first question you will be asked is, "Do you have medical coverage". The price of a medical plan while traveling is nothing compared to what your cost would be if you would have to be hospitalized. Remember, Medicare does not cover your medical expenses outside the US. So remeber this the next time your preparing to travel outside the US.

My wife has a mostly controlled medical condition. The reason you did not pay for our needed cancellation is, in my opinion, buried on page 12 of 14 of your policy. I'm out the money for the trip and the money I paid your company. This is not the type of policy one should buy on line.

I could have used my own medical plan for Alaska. I was only out of the country 2 days and someone should have recommended something cheaper. It was too costly for what I needed. Now I know differently.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. While it is true your primary health care provider may have been able to provide coverage during the U.S. portion of your trip, the Global Alert Preferred plan you purchased is a comprehensive package plan that offers much more than medical care and provides you coverage from the moment you leave your home until the moment you return back to your home. The Global Alert Preferred policy offers Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Baggage Loss, Baggage Delay, Travel Delay, Emergency Medical, Emergency Medical Evacuation, Financial Default, and a Pre-Existing Condition Waiver. Additionally, premium is typically within the range of 4-10% of the trip cost and is determined by the following factors: the length of the trip, the cost of the trip, and the ages of the travelers. For future purchases or for additional questions regarding comprehensive coverage, please feel free to contact our office at 800-487-4722 where our licensed representatives would be happy to assist you.
