Arch RoamRight Essential
We have used Insure My Trip for many, many years and have chosen a variety of Insurance companies over the years. For this January's trip to the Indian Himalayas, we insured with RoamRight.
At an altitude of 13000 feet, one of us got dehydrated, became quite ill and needed to get to lower altitude and to hospital care. This involved changing our flight back to Delhi and, after care in a suburban hospital, flying home to our U.S. hospital. United Airlines refunded our change fee quicklyand easily. RoamRight's website guided me through entering:
* the required information to prove that we did need to evacuate
* the costs involved in changing the domestic (Indian) tickets and
*the value of the tour that we missed by leaving about half way through the tour.

About two or three weeks after they received this information, they reviewed it and without any "fuss and bother", they issued checks that fully covered our loss.
The incident was terrifying, but the interaction with RoamRight was straightforward and totally satisfying.
Malcolm K. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

shopped several plans including the one provided by the cruise line. Roam Right's plan offered more at a fair price. Happily, we did not need to file a claim. But, we had great peace of mind with your coverage in place.

For medical reasons, our trip had to be cancelled. RoamRight was clear on documentation needed to file an on-line claim. We were thorough in what was submitted. They notified us of status of claim. Within several weeks, we had a check covering all that we had pre-paid for our trip. Very satisfied and would use again

Our flight got cancelled and we were rebooked on another airline. However the new airline charged us for the baggage fee! We submitted receipts for the fee and the meals we had to purchase during our long delay. RoamRight reimbursed all of it within 30 days. Thank you!

As i didn't file any claims, it's impossible to rate how good or bad the policy I purchased would prove to be. However, the policy did cover everything that I wanted and it was purchased at a fair price for my age (70's).

I always have a piece of mind with Insure when I travel outside the USA. I just call your number, and your agents always are pleasant and take their time for me. Thanks you for your services.

It took long, and unnecessary work on my part, to get the claim settled. Their agent inexplicably confused flight numbers of our cancelled flights and I had to submit airline-obtained "proof" that should not have been required.
