Global Alert! Preferred
We used this insurance last summer, and we had a small claim because of a flight delay that caused us to miss a connection -- and this small claim took months to process. There was never any question about whether our claim was covered, but it just took a very long time for the company to process the claim. In addition, the website did not always accurately reflect the status of our claim. This summer, however, we had no claim to file, and all was fine.

My wife and I just got back from Peru. We purchased the Global Alert combination plan which covered all aspects of our trip from medical care to trip cancellation. Fortunately, we did not have to file a claim. The cost of the insurance plan was reasonable and effortless to purchase.

The plan provided peace of mind in case anything happen before or during the trip. Good news was that I did not need to use it.

This was the worst ever. When you pay for insurance and you can not go on a trip particularly due to medical reasons that were quite catastrophic, the last thing you need is to have to call for MONTHS to get it settled. All documentation was provided, all doctors and hospital notes and all T's crossed and I's dotted. you will eventually get your money but you will have to make at least 2 or 3 dozen calls with just being told, I don't know what is going on, it has been approved...we agree with you....dont know why you don't have the check. It was escalated several times, this was a horror, I will NEVER use them again. You have to BEG for your money!

I was in touch with the travel assistance team in regards to an issue. They first tried. Then were supposed to call back which was not done in a timely way. In the end they were no help at all and I wound up spending a lot of money on my international phone bill.

No need to file a claim, but there was comfort in knowing coverage was there should something unexpected arise.

We had to cancel an expensive pre-paid tour shortly before departure due to a medical reason. I was pleased with how smoothly the claim process went. I appreciated being able to track the progress of our claim online.
It took a little over three weeks from the day I sent in the documentation for the claim to the day I got the refund check.
I am very thankful that we had purchased travel insurance and that there weren't a lot of hassles involved in getting our refund.

I unfortunately had to file a claim for the theft of my backpack while traveling in Peru. (Global Alert Preferred) handled my claim in a timely manner and reimbursed me for approximately 90% of my items. I would highly recommend this service to anyone traveling. One of the cheapest rates I have found.
