Global Alert is administered by Trip Mate, Inc. which is underwritten by American Modern Home Insurance Company.
We had to cancel our trip due to an injury. Fortunately, we had purchased trip cancelation insurance and had all the medical documentation required to file a claim. However, dealing with Trip Mate was a very frustrating experience. It was hard to contact them, and the claim forms - only available on line- were confusing and could not be completed on line.
We submitted all required paper work by mail, which Trip Mate received on February 9, 2017. After numerous phone calls, being put on hold for almost 20 minutes on several occasions only to be told to leave a call back number (which was not always returned), and two letters, we finally got a check on April 14, 2017. Yes, in the end, Trip Mate/ American Modern Home Insurance Company did cover the expenses incurred when we had to cancel our trip ,which we appreciated. However, it is doubtful that we would have ever purchased this insurance from Insure My Trip if we knew that we would not be dealing directly with an insurance company-Global Alert!- but instead an on-line company like Trip Mate, Inc.
