RoamRight Essential

The Essential plan is the most economical plan offered by 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 RoamRight plans. 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 a pre-existing condition waiver, if you meet all eligibility requirements.

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.

Great plan but it took two months to get money back. Claim had to be resent several times.
Zoa B.
We purchased this plan for a spring break cruise. After we boarded the ship, our daughter had a seizure for the first time in her life. We had only been on the ship for a half hour. We were advised to disembark and seek treatment at the ER. Once cleared for travel we had already missed our ship. This plan covered our cruise, our extra night hotel at the port and our out of pocket ER co pay. Once the claim was filed we had a check in less than 30 days. Most importantly our daughter has not had any further medical issues and we are doing testing on why and if she might have another seizure. Yes, I highly endorse and recommend this plan.

We did not need to file a claim. Plan seemed to cover items we had concern about.
