I purchased travel insurance for safety and security. Rest assured the minute I ran into trouble the company informed me i was on my own. I was stranded in NYC forced into an expensive flight itinerary change which the company refused to cover nor could they offer any information or guidance. This was the kind of emergency that I had purchased insurance for. You can't predict every problem that can arise during vacation and unless it is outlined word for word this company will weasel its way out of paying.
It is like dealing with a huge black hole. Everything goes in and very little comes out. Whether I get reimbursed or not it will be the last time time I will deal with Roan Right. Delay and three weeks to handle a claim and then more delays.
I have tried to explain to xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxx that there was not doctor involved when I cancelled the trip; until after i came back home. I got my letter from her cardiologist and forwarded it to him. No response.
I really hate doing this as I am the sole caregiver for my wife who has both a heart problem and Alzheimer's Disease. So to say I am stressed is an understatement. I will try to stay away from any company or service that causes me more stress than I already have. I am not looking for a pass because of our situation, just some service.
This is my last and final attempt at getting compensation. i will however, do my best to offer my solicited advice should anyone ask me.

If your circumstances do not fit into Roam Rights exact criteria, you have to work extra hard to get your payment. Even if you explain in the initial request, Roam Right forces you to get back in line and give them something close to the original request. Now that i know what to do, I will make sure I select a policy with that in mind.
We hope your wife is feeling better. Your claims representative reached out to you earlier today. As you know by now, your claim has been approved and you can expect your reimbursement check to arrive through the mail. We wish you the best of luck as you navigate difficult health problems. Your patience and devotion is touching and admirable.
Took almost 6 months to give me a decision. Then I was told claim would not be paid
As you are aware, it took some time to obtain all of the necessary documentation required for us to fully process your claim. Upon receiving all of the documentation, it was revealed that your trip was cancelled prior to the effective date on your travel insurance policy. If you have any questions about how travel insurance can protect your future trip plans, we encourage you to contact the travel insurance provider prior to purchasing the policy.
My luggage was lost and I filed a claim. I was told that it was only insured for the first leg of the trip, not the second, and therefore, i would not be paid. Nothing in the papers I've received from you says that only the first leg of flight is covered.
I would NOT recommend this insurance, as it is falsely presented or executed, and I am going to appeal and, if necessary, report this to BBB.
It is unfortunate that your airline mishandled your luggage on your trip home. However, as stated in the description of coverage you received upon purchase, baggage delay coverage applies to outbound journeys only and covers “the expense of necessary personal effects, up to the maximum shown on your Confirmation of Benefits, if your checked baggage is delayed or misdirected by a Common Carrier for more than twelve hours, while on a trip, except for travel to final destination or place of residence.”
As you were returning to your place of residence and your luggage was ultimately returned to you, baggage delay coverage does not apply to your situation.
Claim paid in less than two weeks.
We had a month-long trip to Europe planned and fortunately purchased insurance for this very expensive trip.
Just a week before departure, my husband became quite ill and was admitted to the hospital. Upon release, he was directed not to leave the country. So, we had to cancel at the last minute. Our tour operator and the airline refunded nothing, so we were very grateful to have trip insurance.
After emailing them hundreds of pages of documentation from the hospital and doctors, the claim was approved. Although it took several weeks to move through Roam Right's process, they only requested one additional piece of information and the claim was paid in full just last week.
I would be happy to purchase from them in the future!
I have not heard a word about my claim - not a yes, no or I need more information. It would be nice if there would be some form of communication - it was received, it is process, it was denied. Am I asking to much?
We have forwarded your comment to our claims department. They reached out to you yesterday afternoon to follow up with you.
Squaremouth has contacted the customer to open a Zero Complaint Case.
I am glad I found Squaremouth. very good service from the customer representatives. They have answered all my questions and helped me file my claim very easily. Processing was fast too. I received my claims in less than 10 day. Thank you Squaremouth!
RoamRight received the claim on 3-16-2015. I did not receive a check until 5-2-2015. Other than the long delay in receiving my check I am happy with RoamRight.
We were suppose to go on our trip in May of last year, but the travel group canceled the trip because there were not enough people. So, I called RoamRight to have them switch the dates of the trip and they told me that we would have to buy a whole new policy. I called Squaremouth and asked if they could help.They easily called RoamRight and had the dates switched without any additional charge. Thank you SquareMouth!
