Global Alert! Preferred
Fortunately, I didn't have to use the plan but it seemed to cover what I needed to be covered to feel comfortable in my travels in the UK and in Italy.

Global Alert! Preferred
A major shortcoming in this policy is that the premium is non-refundable if the related cruise / travel plans are cancelled prior to the penalty period. That is, if coverage is purchased for a trip 270 days in the future and the trip is cancelled 180 days in the future with no penalty cost, the insurance should be refundable, less a small service charge, because the insurer has not provided any coverage during a risk period, that is there has been no exposure to loss.

Clark Howard recommended using InsureMyTrip.com. I did so and found many, many options for trip insurance. The policy I chose met my needs and was reasonably priced. I did not file a claim so I have no opinion about that.

I didn't need to submit a claim, but it was nice piece of mind knowing I had coverage if something went wrong. Great customer service from InsureMyTrip, as usual. I will buy again.

Although I did not have to activate the Global Alert! Preferred plan I purchased prior to my trip to Europe, it was nice to know I had this coverage just in case anything should happen during the trip. I had never purchased travel insurance before, but I will be purchasing travel insurance on all future trips just for the peace of mind it brings while traveling.

Would have preferred a more custom-tailored plan in which I could choose which coverage items I needed, rather than having to pick a more expensive comprehensive one. I did not file a claim or contact the insurance company, so cannot comment on the service.

When we were younger; I did not think too much about travel insurance until a dear friend got hurt and needed to be air lifted to the USA. I want us covered now, and talking with your representative and her knowledge of this plan, helped me to chose this plan.

Thankfully we didn't need it, but after having had a heart attack while visiting New Zealand, I'll always have trip insurance. It's worth it for the peace of mind.
