I tried to cancel this insurance before my trip. However, every time someone called me to respond, they thought I was trying to file a claim. After the 3rd phone call, they said they would email a claim form to me, but I never got it. I consider that I was very lucky we did not need to make a claim.

    Thank you for your review and feedback. I apologize for the difficulties you experienced when contacting Global Alert. I see that we contacted Global Alert on your behalf. It appears there was confusion surrounding the request to cancel the policy as you were still continuing on with your trip. Again, my apologies for the difficulties, and please remember we are available seven days a week to assist you with any questions or concerns.

The customer service rep we spoke to was terrific! She was knowledgeable and offered all ranges of coverage without pressure.

Fortunately, we didn't have any travel issues but glad we had Global Alert coverage in the event our travels were interrupted. It was added peace of mind and we had a great trip without worry.

Thanks for your great service!

I have no complaints. Thank goodness we didn't have to use this, so it is hard to really write a review on something we didn't use.

Purchased the plan mainly for it's specific language for cancellation of a condominium rental in the event of a hurricane. It also provided for refund if we were forced to evacuate due to hurricane situation. Thankfully the Atlantic Hurricane season has been slow and it was unnecessary.

I had the satisfaction of knowing that I was covered, but the
best thing was I did not have to use the insurance. I would
buy the insurance again because when I spend that much on
a trip I just want the peace of mind.

Thanks for the insurance. We are glad that we did not have to use it. We had a great trip. No illnesses and no hurricanes. It seemed like a good price.

The plan cost seemed rather high for the outside chance that we would need to use it to file a claim. I would have been wholly satisfied if the cost of the plan had been about 30% less.

Although we did not have to cancel the trip and use the plan, it was comforting to know we had an option if Storm Sandy forced us to cancel the trip to New York. Everything went well and would recommend your services to anyone traveling and unsure if circumstances may cause a cancellation.
