I was very pleased with the complete coverage we had and very glad also I didn't have to utilize any of it. Would not hesitate to use this coverage again when the need arises.

I can only speak to the representative I talked to when I purchased the plan as we did not have to file a claim. She was thorough, explained everything to me in an understandable way and was most courteous. It was an excellent experience.

I thought the plan was ok but hated to pay such a fee because of my age*^) I am in excellent shape for my years and have very few medical issues..

    Thank you for providing feedback on this policy.

    All of our providers base policy premiums off of three main factors. These include the total cost of your non-refundable trip, the ages of all travelers listed on the policy and the length of your trip. As a comparison site, we are here to assist you in finding the least expensive options for the coverage you are looking for.

    Please feel free to contact us when looking for a policy. We can be reached at 1-800-487-4722 and our licensed representatives are available 7 days a week.

We didn't have to file a claim so all is well. My son and I were in Canada fly fishing at a fly-in lodge 350 mikes south of the arctic circle so coverage for medical evacuation was important to me. Our Global Alert policy seemed to provide more coverage for that particular item at less cost than comparable plans.

My wife had health issues and so had to cancel her part of the trip, though I continued. I filed a claim for $1400 with all required information at the end of May. Upon returning home, after nearly 2 months of inaction and only cryptic notes given in the online claim status report, I called customer service at TravelClaimsOnline.

The representative could not explain the delay, especially during 3 weeks of June when no status entries were made. She also pointed out that for some unknown reason, the claim number was changed without informing me, so I could not know any of the latest status updates anyway.

It is now the end of July and the claim status report of the new number on the day after I called said, "final payment printed". The check finally arrived two months after filing the claim and much confusion.

I made a claim to another travel insurance company for a separate trip that I had to cancel due to my wife's health issue. It was also obtained through InsureMyTrip. The claim was processed in 2 weeks. I will use this company again!
