Global Alert Travel Insurance Summary

Few distinctions when it comes to the different coverage items offered by the three plans. This is pretty good since you don’t have to go into the trouble of comparing each and every item offered in each plan. Of course, higher-tiered plans would have better dollar benefits but even its entry level offer (Essential) provides good coverage benefits if you’re not really expecting any major mishaps along the way. For those going on adventure or special trips however, Global Alert Travel might not be the best companion. Three simple plans with good coverage, a must-see for travelers.
