Global Alert! Preferred Plus
While fortunately we did not have the opportunity to use the plan, it was good to know that in case of any problems we had an insurance policy that we could rely upon.

When your away on vacation or traveling in a foreign country you never know when a medical issue will happen. For peace of mind I always buy a medical plan to cover any needs while I am away. In this case Globel Alert. Keep in mind when you need medical help in a foreign country the first question you will be asked is, "Do you have medical coverage". The price of a medical plan while traveling is nothing compared to what your cost would be if you would have to be hospitalized. Remember, Medicare does not cover your medical expenses outside the US. So remeber this the next time your preparing to travel outside the US.

Peace of mind at an affordable price. Easy to purchase on-line with good informational back-up from real people, if needed. Company monitors your departure and return too with email communication. Very satisfied.

I had a medical problem which prevented me from going on my vacation. When I called Global to cancel my plan I was told I had to cancel within two weeks of my signing up. I called over a month before my trip and was shocked by the refusal to cancel my trip insurance since I was not going on my trip and would not file a claim. This is bad customer relations and I will find another trip insurer in the future.

I purchase an emergency cover insurance plan for myself and my two toddlers, 2 and 4 years old for our 1 month vacation to Brazil.( from Global Alert) Unfortunatelly I had to use the insurance with them both . They got a very bad Virus during our vacation and the yougest even end up a few hours at a local hospital for tests and hydration. As soon as I came back to the US I filed the claim which was pretty easy. It took 1 month for them to send a response and the money for the claim. They used a very high dolar conversion and paid me less, $100 pretty much, than I spent in Brazil ( I had to pay the hospital and doctors bills in Brazil and they refund you here later, next time I will choose a plan that pays the expenses for me. ) but overall I am happy that I got this insurance, without it I would have spent much more. You never buy an insurance expecting to use it, but it is very necessary especially when travelling for long periods with kids.

I was glad to have coverage, but happier not to have needed it. This is the last of several trips I have purchased travel insurance through InsureMyTrip. This plan, which I bought for the first time seemed reasonable. I have always found the advice of InsureMyTrip agents precise, focused on our specific requests and reasonably priced. I look forward to healthy years of travel and plan to continue relying on this insurance agency to provide us with travel insurance.
