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.

I usually purchase travel insurance due to my mother's fragile health condition. Up until this trip I did not need to process a claim. When my mother had a stroke 2 days before our trip I was worried about the hassle of trying to get reimbursed for my trip I was now unable to take. I was quite pleased with RoamRight's help for the processing of my claim and I was happy that they did not add to my stress by making it difficult for me to get approval for my claim. I will certainly obtain coverage with them again on future trips.

Thank you , was nice to know our vacation was covered will call you guys when go on our next adventurer.
I didn't focus on medical expense coverage, which was probably too low, when I purchased the plan. (I was focused on medical evacuation coverage, which was fine.) Next time I will. Fortunately, I didn't need to file a claim.
