I think I was wisely guided to Global Alert by a very capable rep from Squaremouth at the beginning. When I couldn't print my policy I asked it to be sent. It arrived when I got home, which didn't impress me. I still believe Global Alert is a fine policy. The person online who works for them is lax in his job representation.
The coordination with Travel with Alan/Travel Leaders, Lynwood, WA, made us feel more secure in our selection.
There was a very large amount of paperwork required to file my relatively small claim (less than $200 for a medical cost on cruise); as a customer who has bought many, many policies through Squaremouth I expect you to expedite my claim.

It was a pleasure dealing with the person on the phone and on line. thankfully i dident need your services, it was nice knowing I had coverage.
I became ill while traveling in Germany and required medical assistance. My family was able to contact Global Alert and get everything I need as far as information goes and they were very helpful in giving me the info I needed in order to make a claim once I received my bill from the hospital.
I was able secure travel insurance by comparing premiums and coverage with several companies.
Excellent service--very professional.
Easy to purchase. Out original confirmation at purchase was not sent via email. We had to request it.
the cruiseline cancelled the trip due to ship problens RCL, they refunded 1400 dollars BUT when I filed a claim for $138 for Delta air fare the insurance agent said I didn't have enough overage to qualify, I didn't even ask for the $200 reimbursement for miles credit I lost, So much for being a nice person and buying travel insurance again !!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We understand you are not satisfied with the outcome of your claim.
The reason no benefits are payable in your claim is that the trip cost was not insured on the travel protection plan. The amount of trip cost you choose to insure determines the amount of trip cancellation coverage and also determines the price you pay for the plan.
Because $0 trip cost was insured, the trip cancellation coverage benefit is $0.
We know this isn’t the answer you wanted, but please understand that we are required to process all claims according to the provisions in the plan. Even during an unfortunate situation, we are unable to pay trip cancellation benefits when the benefit amount insured is $0.
Please contact us if you have any questions, we want to make sure all of your concerns are addressed.
