Arch RoamRight Essential

The Essential plan is the most economical plan offered by Arch RoamRight. It offers standard comprehensive travel insurance coverage such as trip cancellation protection and baggage protection for loss or delay.

The plan has other standard benefits such as travel medical coverage. Being the most economical plan for your budget, the Essential plan does provide the most modest level of medical coverage of the three Arch RoamRight plans with $15,000 for emergency medical accidents and sicknesses and $150,000 for emergency medial evacuation. It acts as a secondary insurance plan, meaning you’ll need to first use any coverage provided by your primary health insurance company. This plan also includes Political and Security Evacuation of $100,000.

The plan also allows you to upgrade to include rental car collision coverage for an additional premium. This may be a good option for travelers who are renting a car during their trip. Be sure to contact your rental car company to discuss the coverage to ensure they will honor it.

If you will be traveling with children, this plan will cover one child, age 17 or under, at no additional premium for each covered adult. This allows you to travel worry-free, knowing that your children are covered just as you are. Whether you are going on a family adventure, a well-deserved cruise, or a long-awaited trip to a foreign country, the Essential plan offers peace of mind wherever your travels take you.

Arch Roam Right is a terrible company. They look out for their own interests, not the interests of their insureds, and attempt to deny claims by re-writing their policies after the fact so that they can deny your legitimate claims. Beware. We are avid travelers and will never use their insurance again, and are in the process of filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

I appreciated the fact that they sent a reminder before my trip, that they were available if the need should arrive and then again to ensure I arrived home as scheduled.

The best part of this plan is that I did NOT use it - - However, I had the peace of mind that the coverage was there if I needed it - - a number of years ago, we had to cancel a cover trip at the last minute due to a death in the family - - insurance coverage was complete & the claim process was quick & easy. I would never plan a big trip (out of the country) without travel insurance.
