Travel Insurance Reviews Global Underwriters Diplomat International

The Global Underwriters Diplomat International plan is a single-trip Travel Medical plan, covering you for travels outside of your home country (except to the U.S.). Your primary health insurance may not fully cover you while you are traveling abroad, and this plan can help to fill in potential coverage gaps.

I highly warn people to NOT get this insurance.
The claim process is fairly simple. Fill in a form, send it along with scans of the documents.
BUT the catch is.

They only make settlements of claims through CHECKS. Yes, you heard that right, checks in the mail.
What is this, are we in the 80s?? Also.... it doesn't matter if you're abroad.

They'll send you a US check, for a US bank, and expect you to somehow cash it in.

So, if you're not living in the USA, then this insurance company is not for you.

Stay away.

Though I didn't use the service, that I was able to get basic medical for a foreign trip at a reasonable price gave me peace of mind.

This policy gave me all the cover I needed at a very reasonable price. I had a heart attack 20 years ago, with no issues since but I have been paying extortionate UK premiums ever since - until now!

The policy appeared to be good coverage and dealing with the company was professional and efficient. As I made no claim against the policy the I can make no comment on how this part of the process would be handled

We purchased the Global Underwriters Diplomat International plan for our recent 17 day trip. Though we did not use it, it gave us comfort in knowing it was available. My husband did have a fall where he bumped his head, but it was a minor incident and did not require further treatment, but it could have. He and we were very fortunate it did not escalate.
