I find your site extremely helpful in comparing coverage and selecting the items that are important to me for trip insurance. Mu husband got ill on our trip and he has
been dealing with Global Alert. It was a very tedious process to submit the claim. We have not heard back from them yet.
Review Updated: 10/26/2016
WE ended up getting the full amount of the claim - approximately $4,500. But my husband submitted It about Sept 7th or 8th and it took until October 24 for us to get payment. I'm not sure everyone insuring with them could wait that long without some financial deficit. Thank you. Julie Crum

Extremely unhappy, claim is in dispute. I would never use them or you ever again. I paid for canel any time insurance for the entire span. The "bad word" insurance comapmy is denies claim becuase girl friend got pregnant. They refused claiming it was pre existing condition on Feb 1st and I paid for insurance meid march. SHE wasnt pregnant feb 1st and they know that.
Unhappy to the max
I have no complaints about the process or the time it took to complete. They required specific documents which I provided and settled the claim in a timely manner.
I had two interactions with Squaremouth prior to our trip and neither went well. 1) When I asked for Beneficiary designation forms, the person wasn't sure what it was and wondered why I would need one. C'mon! Does it get any more basic!? And you don't know what it is!? Scary. (Eventually, I did get to Aidan there and he was quite helpful.) 2) I asked about which medical shots were necessary. The person there simply read from a script. They had no idea what it really meant and couldn't offer any interpretive value to me. I was thankful I didn't have to call Squaremouth about anything else.
Excellent customer service support. Better coverage options than purchasing through cruise line. Money well spent for peace of mind.
Easy to purchase. Out original confirmation at purchase was not sent via email. We had to request it.
did not need a claim but glad to have the policy.
Filed a claim with Global Alert (Trip Mate) on Monday, March 6, 2017. So far, no acknowledge of claim. Waiting
The initial purchase was easy, and I would give that experience 5 stars. However, as I made increases to my coverage as payments became due for this (very expensive) trip, I had to contact the insurer, Global Alert, directly by email. They were not particularly responsive, and I usually had to follow up with a phone call to confirm additional premium due and to confirm that the insured amount was properly increased. It would have been much easier to make those changes through Square Mouth. Perhaps this procedure could be improved.
I'd prefer to talk to Squaremouth employees directly instead of the insurance company when increasing coverage to cover accumulating vacation trip costs and for other reasons. This used to be Squaremouth's policy. It's changed and now I have cause to check out Squaremouth's competitors.
