Bought it to protect against losing trip if my elderly mother passed away. Didn't have to use it, thankfully. I appreciate the emails sent right before the trip to give me links to all of the info. Very helpful as I was packing and didn't have time to chase down all the info. myself.

Coverage and price was good but I didn't have to file claim. So, not sure how customer service would have been.

Fortunately my trip to the Galapagos went smoothly without accident or delay or loss. Having insurance gave us a stress free vacation on top of traveling with an excellent travel company in the Galapagos. Thank you for your service.

    Dear Traveler,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. In order to cancel a policy, we require the insured to send us an email requesting the cancellation. According to our records, we did not receive an email (nor a phone call) requesting cancellation of your policy. Additionally, if you were to have cancelled 3 days after the conclusion of our 14-day free-look window, a refund for your trip cost would only have been given for a covered reason as outlined by your description of coverage, assuming you cancelled the entirety of your trip and not just the insurance. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact customer service at customerservice@roamright.com or by phone at 1-800-699-3845.

    Regards,
