While the plan provided a sense of comfort fortunately we did not have a need to file a claim. Therefore, we have no basis to attest as to satisfaction nor to make a recommendation. All communication with Global Alert was courteous and professional.

I felt the plan was very reasonalbly priced, the best I could find. The person to whom I spoke with regarding this plan was fully knowageable and easy to talk to. She answered all my questions and more. I will most definitely use this servcie again on my next trip. Thank goodness I did not need to, but on my recent trip there were a few people who had to use their medical insurance. One just doesn't know what may happen. Knowing one is insured for the unexpected is most important and an item that cannot be missed.

Thank you for your wonderful service. Even though I did not use it, I know if I had to I'd not have to worry.

Thank you again.

Global Alert! Preferred
I had a claim that was complicated because I had problems at both the beginning and end of my trip. The problems at the end became complicated because of steps I had to take at the beginning to get to my cruise. I had a little trouble filling out the claim forms, but sent a cover letter and they sorted it out and covered almost every thing I thought they would. There was one denied item that I didn't understand, but since they went over the max amounts that I thought they would cover I was very happy. The only problem was that my claim seemed to get hung up and I didn't get a response as fast I should have. When I called they expedited it and all was well.

Fortunately I didn't need to file a claim so I'm only rating the plan coverage and price compared to other company's plans.

Not sure if I'd recommend. That is because I had no claim. I also noticed this was secondary coverage when I clearly asked the InsureMyTrip telephone sales operator for primary coverage. Well, it was cheaper as secondary I guess. Just happy I had no claim.

It was reassuring to have selected an unbelievably affordable travel policy for our recent first trip to Europe. We spent 14 days in Germany and knew that most medical occurrences and travel mishaps would be covered. It offered us peace of mind so that we could spend our time enjoying our vacation.

I had no occasion to use the insurance, so I cannot comment of the company's responsiveness in the event of a claim.

I had to see the ships doctor on our cruise. This incurred s $268.00 fee. After submitting claim to my Medicare supplement and receiving a denial of payment (cost was applied to my travel deductible) I submitted all my documentation on line. It took about 6 weeks to receive my full cost of care. The website was excellent to follow the processing of my claim.

Was disappointed that I could not get a plan specifically for the trip portion since I already had the medical evacuation portion of the trip covered. And, that is the reason why I rated the plan as I did.
