RoamRight Essential
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.

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.

A review of an insurance policy that no claim was made is fairly worthless. You never know how good the policy or the company is until you want them to pay.

This is not a negative review, next time I travel this company will get my business.

I liked the timely manner which my insurance card was sent before I left for my trip. I have 2 other trips scheduled for this year and will be using your company.

The only way to evaluate the value of an insurance policy is by assessing its claim handling process.
Since we did not file a claim, I cannot evaluate how good is the insurance product. The best evaluation should come from those who filed claims.

We were fortunate enough to not have issues that would have required us to file a claim. We trust we made wise decision to purchase travel insurance.

The whole insurance-purchase process through insuremytrip.com was very smooth. I particularly liked how easy it was to add additional coverage as I made additional payments for cruise installments, airline tickets and shore excursions. I had to submit a medical claim with RoamRight, and the claim was handled promptly and correctly. Make sure you save all of your receipts. I will definitely be buying trip insurance from insuremy trip in the future.

I chose a plan that was very reasonably priced. Since I had no problems and filed no claims the only thing I benefited from the plan was peace of mind. This is the ideal outcome and I have no complaints. I cannot comment on how the plan would have performed if needed. I certainly would not recommend or not recommend the plan to someone else with no real knowledge of its performance.
