Arch RoamRight Essential
While we did not have to file a claim found the plan to cover what concerns us most when traveling. The cost is much cheaper than those offered by travel sites for the same coverage.

We took this insurance as we booked our trip a year ago and we had an old dog. WE didn't need to cancel and it worked well for us, gave me great peace of mind.
Thank you

    Thank you very, very much for your 5 star review. However, your RoamRight Essential plan would not have provided reimbursement if you had needed to cancel or interrupt your trip due to sickness, injury or death of a pet. In order to cancel or interrupt your trip for that specific reason, you would have needed to purchase the RoamRight Preferred or Elite plans including Cancel for Any Reason coverage.

    Please note that none of our plans provide coverage under Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption for issues relating to a pet. In the future, you may wish to call Customer Care at (800) 487-4722 to discuss your options for any future trips.

This was not where I went. I bought a plan for Panama Canal from nov 30 to dec 10. Never had to file a claim but it gives me good peace of mind.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Since we asked you to enter your Departure Date as the date you planned to leave home and the Return Date as the date you planned to return home, you were actually covered for travel to Panama as well as travel outside that country. If you were traveling to multiple destinations, we would have asked you to enter the country where you would be spending the most time. If spending equal time in multiple countries, we asked you to choose your first international destination, or if taking a cruise, you should have entered the first international port of arrival as your destination.

    Please feel free to call Customer Care at (800) 487-4722 if you should have any questions.

    We did go there but your original post gave a date of September 2016, which I misunderstood to be date of trip. Can't believe I planned this trip over a year ago! Anyway, I recommend your site to everyone. I urge them to buy the insurance as soon as they book the trip to ensure they are covered for preexisting conditions.

Luckily I didn't have to submit a claim so I cannot give a good review. Coverage could be better and less confusing. It all sounds very confusing and ridiculous. The process to buy vacation insurance shouldn't be so complicated. It should be direct and to the point. We're not buying permant life insurance here for crying out loud

Seemed like a great deal. We didn't have need of it so that was great too.

It's a great plan for that unexpected time you might need it and cost effective. Thank goodness we didn't have to use it but knowing you have protection is a relief.
