Global Alert! Preferred Plus
As described to me online by a sales agent, I feel the terms for unexpected illness of a relative is too stringent if that relative has chronic health issues. In my case, my brother has cystic fibrosis and is had recently had surgery. Given he's had dozens of surgeries, I was not led to believe any issues he had would've allowed for an early return from the coveted trip. I did not become an issue, but in hindsight I don't think I would've used this coverage again.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this policy.

    The Global Alert Preferred Plus policy provides coverage in the event there is an "Accidental Injury, Sickness or death of You, Your Traveling Companion, Your Family Member, or Your Business Partner"

    "“Pre-Existing Condition” means any Accidental Injury, Sickness or condition of You, Your Traveling Companion, or Your Family Member booked to travel with You for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received within the 180 day period ending on the Effective Date. Sicknesses or conditions are not considered pre-existing if the Sickness or condition for which prescribed drugs or medicine is taken remains controlled without any change in the required prescription."

    At the time of purchase, if your brother was home and stable the pre-existing condition exclusion would not have applied to him. The definition of pre-existing conditions only includes Traveling Family Members. However, if he was currently undergoing any treatment or was hospitalized, a related claim would likely not be covered.

    We always recommend contacting us when planning a trip. Our licensed ages are available 7 days a week and can be reached at 1-800-487*4722.

We were going to Paris and London and due to the Westminster Bridge attack and the elevation of the terror level to the highest its been in years I was concerned. My trip was only days away.I called about whether I could change my plans and go somewhere else other then England. I had a non refundable hotel booked there. My plan included "cancel for any reason" but I didn't want to cancel my trip, just change it so I could travel somewhere that didn't just experience 2 terror attacks in 2 months. When I called the women I spoke to basically said there was nothing I could do except cancel everything and forfeit 25% of what the trip cost.
One of the reasons I took out this policy was because of the random terror attacks going on and I wanted to be covered in case something happened. But in my case it was worthless.

    Thank you for your feedback on your policy. Cancel for Any Reason gives the traveler the ultimate flexibility to cancel the trip for any reason, including high-level terror threats or fear of traveling due to terrorism. To use that benefit on your policy, however, you would have to cancel your entire trip no less than 2 days prior to the Scheduled Departure and you would be reimbursed 75% of your non-refundable trip cost.

    If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to help you.

It was comforting to know I could cancel if need be and not lose everything I'd paid out. With a 92 year old mother and myself almost 70, the coverage was peace of mind.

I did not make a claim so cannot comment on if the company would have followed through with reimbursement without a hassle.

It was a relief to know we would be covered in the event we would have to cancel due to circumstances out of our control

Travel insurance is something smart people buy & hope they never use. I've never used it, hope I never do, but will always buy it.
