Arch RoamRight Essential
I'm very happy I purchased travel insurance. We were traveling to countries that were experiencing an increase in terror attacks and I was nervous we would need to cancel. Policy prices were very reasonable and coverage was what we hoped for. I did not have any claims this time. I will buy from this company again. The price was well worth the peace of mind it gave me.

I will never insure with this company again. Have purchased several trip policies and made one claim this year due to illness. Always had to call in to find out the status. Took forever. We site showing status is worthless. They denied the claim according to what isn't covered obviously hidden in their 34 page policy. Customer service was not helpful every time I called. Like pulling teeth to get information.

Least expensive of all the travel insurance plans I checked--but way too high, given the very low probability of a claim.

Luckily we did not have any problems with our trip and did not have to make any claims....therefore I have no idea how to rate this product. I can not give a good nor bad review bc we did not use it. Only a Not applicable remark will suffice.

The policy I chose covered everything that I needed. When the return date for my trip changed by 3 weeks (I knew this before leaving home), I was able to call the company and have the plan extended for an additional cost which seemed reasonable. The representative I spoke with on the phone about this was very helpful and knowledgeable. I made my original plans via the internet, and everything was clearly presented as well. Happily, I did not need to file a claim while I was away, but I was very glad for the peace of mind that the policy gave me. I would certainly use the company again.

Luckily, we did not need to use the travel insurance. It was reassuring to know that coverage was available if the need arose. I did not realize that our own health insurance was the primary and Roam Right was secondary. Also, any changes in prescriptions, i.e. dosages, is considered a pre-existing condition.

I was unable to go on my trip and I filed a claim with Roam Right on March 15.2015. I didn't hear anything from them so I called. I was told that my claim was there and had been assigned to an adjuster and they would contact me. After almost three weeks I called and was told that my claim had been accepted and a check would be mailed. After 12 days I called again and she said that they had no way to track it so she would reissue it. I finally got my check after another 10 days. I think that the insurance is better than the service.

Great plan but it took two months to get money back. Claim had to be resent several times.
