RoamRight Essential
We had to cancel a trip at the last minute due to health problems. Everyone a RoamRight was extremely helpful and efficient. My claim was processed quickly and within 2 weeks I had a refund for the trip.

The costs of insuring my trips are becoming more prohibitive and keep me from taking more trips during the year.

Never used the plan but it's the third time I've bought the same plan for 3 diff. trips as it provides the basic coverage I need (cancel due to sickness/unforeseen circumstance and I have peace of mind). I'll continue to buy this plan for future trips as well, for the low % of total cost, it's well worth it to me so I don't panic if my kid gets a sniffle 2 days before a flight.

A good value for the cost. It felt good to have insurance just incase something happened.

As we sat on a Delta plane in Amsterdam that was delayed in the first hour of the computer outage, I realized the RoamRight plan wouldn't help us with this problem, but if we had been stranded for days, it might have. I didn't take the time to research these details once we were home safely!

Fortunately did not have to file a claim, but it was comforting knowing we had coverage in case something happened.

I was unaware of the limitations of this policy. My step son travelling with me got a throat infection while we were away. Taking him to the Hospital was not an option. When I called the insurance company I was told this policy was for serious life treating issues. I could take him to the ER and then a decision would be made as to coverage. In the meantime I would have to pay out of pocket and MAYBE I would be reimbursed. Instead I consulted the pharmacist. I was disappointed at the lack of help I received from the agent. My mistake was I should have informed myself of how to use this plan before I left for my trip.

    Thank you for your review. Assuming your stepson also had travel insurance with the RoamRight Essential plan, he would have up to 15,000 USD in emergency accident and sickness coverage. Our 24-hour assistance provider, On Call International, would have been able to assist you in finding non-emergent care for the infection. In this situation, you likely would have had to pay out of pocket and submit for reimbursement. However, our claims process is straightforward and easy to do online. You are able to start your claim process the same day treatment was sought. If you would like to speak with us directly about your situation, please call our claims department at 855-762-6252.
