Here’s How the Global Alert Preferred Plus
Cancel For Any Reason Benefit Works:

bullet The Global Alert Preferred Plus includes 75% Cancel For Any Reason coverage.

If You are prevented from taking the Covered Trip for any reason not otherwise covered by this policy, We will reimburse You or Your designated representative for 75% of the prepaid, forfeited, non-refundable Payments or Deposits for the Covered Trip arrangement(s), provided the following conditions are met:

(a) this coverage is purchased within 14 days of the date the initial Payment or Deposit is paid and You insure the cost of any subsequent arrangement(s) added to the same Covered Trip within 14 days of the date of Payment or Deposit for any subsequent Covered Trip arrangement(s); and
(b) this insurance coverage is purchased for the full cost of all non-refundable prepaid Covered Trip arrangements; and
(c) You or Your designated representative cancels the Covered Trip no less than 2 days prior to the Scheduled Departure Date.

This coverage will be terminated and no benefits will be paid if the full costs of all prepaid, non-refundable Covered Trip arrangements are not insured.
