Fortunately we didn't need any of the services (claim, etc.) but it looked like global covered all we might need.

Most reasonable price but weak in certain coverages, especially delayed travel and lost/delayed luggage.

Since we did not actually have a need to use the plan, it is hard to review, but based on price and coverage, we were satisfied.

Took a long time to get reimbursed but eventually got back all of my trip deposit when we had to cancel our trip.

The Global Alert! Preferred plan provided the coverage I wanted for trip cancellation and medical evacuation. I shopped around, and found this policy to be the best value for money, which in my opinion is more important than a simple price comparison. Fortunately, I did not have to file a claim, but the policy documents made it very clear what to do in the event of a claim or need for assistance while traveling, so I felt very confident that I was in good hands while traveling abroad.

We filed a claim for a medical problem. The claim was handled efficiently and fairly. We are very pleased with the insurance plan.

There is no way to accurately gauge a plan unless and until you actually need to use it. This plan APPEARED, through its coverage documents, to have covered everything, but, thankfully, we didn't need to find out how well the plan really performed.
Do we have "buyers' remorse" for purchasing it? NO. Would we purchase it again? YES. Can we accurately comment on how well the plan covered us (or would have covered us) in the event that we had actually had to file a claim? NO. So, completing this survey is actually pretty pointless.

I bought the plan due to having a sick relative. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bought it, because I think the price is too high for the temporary coverage which is provided. The best result was that I didn't have to use it.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    Comprehensive plan premiums are based on the age of the travelers, trip cost and length of trip. Although you purchased an excellent plan, you may wish to call us for your next trip since there may be plans that are more competitively priced.

    Customer Care is available weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight EST and weekends from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Fortunately we did not have a need for anything covered by the policy but it was good to know that it was there in case something would have happened. We made reservations for a cruise a long time in advance of the trip and it was good to know that if something unexpected happened we would not have been out the money for the trip.
