Overall Rating: 7 / 10 (Very good)

Global Alert offers a standard suite of travel insurance coverages, including trip cancellation and interruption, baggage protection, death and disability, and medical insurance. Its policies are underwritten by a financially sound insurer. However, lack of clear information on its website, as well as the inability to get a quote online, means that potential customers will most likely look elsewhere.
