Global Alert – Preferred Plus

Editor Review

The Good: This is Global Alert’s high-end travel insurance plan with high coverage limits and car rental collision coverage is included in the base plan. Pre-existing medical conditions are waived and the optional ‘cancel for any reason’ is available if the plan is purchased within 15 days of initial trip deposit.

The Drawbacks: Not all benefits are available to residents of all U.S. states.

The Bottom Line: This is exceptional coverage for the discriminating traveler who wants the best protection and high maximums. Throw in Global Alert’s enhanced worldwide travel services, which include concierge services and business services, and you have all the coverage you need for any trip you can imagine.
