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

We purchased this plan for a spring break cruise. After we boarded the ship, our daughter had a seizure for the first time in her life. We had only been on the ship for a half hour. We were advised to disembark and seek treatment at the ER. Once cleared for travel we had already missed our ship. This plan covered our cruise, our extra night hotel at the port and our out of pocket ER co pay. Once the claim was filed we had a check in less than 30 days. Most importantly our daughter has not had any further medical issues and we are doing testing on why and if she might have another seizure. Yes, I highly endorse and recommend this plan.

I miscalculated my trip return date by one day, realized the fact 3 days before departure, and received great service amending my RoamRight policy, which was processed and confirmed before leaving on the trip.

Did not use the coverage, so hard to rate something we didn't use, but good to know we had it, should we have needed it.

    We are pleased to see that you would continue to recommend the RoamRight Essential plan to your family and friends. However, the Travel Delay coverage provided under your policy would only "reimburse You for covered expenses on a one-time basis, up to the maximum shown on Your Confirmation of Benefits, if You are delayed en route to or from the Trip for twelve (12) or more hours due to a defined Hazard." Since you did indicate that your flight was delayed for only 3 hours, there would be no compensation for Travel Delay under this policy.

      Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us and for being a frequent RoamRight traveler.

      As detailed in the description of coverage for the Essential plan, benefits for trip delay are triggered after a delay of 12 hours or more. As you indicated, your delay was only 3 hours.

      If you have any further questions please feel free to contact our claims department at claims@roamright.com or by phone at 855-762-6252.
