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!
Unfortunately my wife was diagnosed with cancer before the trip and we had to cancel due to her condition. We were able to get all but the deposit back from the Disney Cruise Line as that is there policy because it was past the cancellation date. I contacted Roam Right claim service and with a verification letter from her physician and the proper claim form the claim was approved and processed within several days. We received the payment from roam right for the deposit amount we had given Disney within 10 days. Easy to do business with, Iam extremely happy with Roam Right.
Claim paid in less than two weeks.
Read the insurance information carefully. I bought roomright because I thought the price was reasonable and compared well with other insurances. I should have gone with my American Express. Apparently, I did not purchase the "cancel trip for any reason" and so I had only a few reasons to cancel my treip. Unfortunately, I came across a visa issue, and that was not a valid reason. Will not be doing business with roam right, which gave me a false illusion of being covered. The only reason I am giving 2 stars is that the customer service rep was relatively nice.
Highly recommended! Filed a trip delay claim after an international flight was cancelled and RoamRight reimbursed us promptly and completely for our new last-minute flight and all other expenses we incurred. Claim process was easy and was completed entirely online.
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!
We had to file a claim due to an accident I had 1 month before leaving. Customer Service answered all my questions and explained the policy in detail and what I needed to file. I filed all paperwork.. They were very prompt in contacting me with a question (my mistake in filling out the paperwork) and immediately issued the insurance payment after our conversation. Very satisfied with their service and would recommend them to others.
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.
First time using RoamRight, but it won't be my last! Due to terrorist activity, our cruise ship changed its itinerary ~ 60 days before the cruise which necessitated a revision in already purchased air travel tickets.
RoamRight was true to their policy without any "gotchas". Once I had gathered and faxed them all the required receipts, etc., they sent me a check for the full amount that the change cost me. The process was painless albeit a little slow compared to my experience with another insurer for a claim several years ago. Nevertheless, the check was in my hands within 21 days of the claim being presented.
I broke my ankle in Marakesh. Late at night on the same day as my accident, my tour guide called the 24/7 emergency assistance number. We spoke with a Roam Right representative and a nurse. Both were excellent. They said that they were going to e-mail forms to complete for my accident. These forms did not come through until the next morning. One of the local tour guides completed the forms for me while I was in the hospital. He sent them back and that was the last we heard for 36 hours!!! Not good when it is an emergency situation. They made the excuse that they needed to find an interpreter to translate from the French (not an uncommon language and most of it was referring to medical terms anyway.) For the next two days, I tried to get an answer from them about transportation from JFK (New York) airport out to my home in Connecticut. I was still trying to get an answer from them as I was being driven to the airport in Cassablanca. they told me they needed the release form form the doctor int he hospital. This form had already been sent to them two days before. They finally told me to get a taxi or limousine from JFK to Connecticut and submit the bill. That would have been difficult as taxis won't go from NY to CT and limousines aren't always there unless you have ordered one. In addition, it would have been very expensive. In the end, I asked my daughter to drive in from CT and pick me up.
The bottom line is that my initial experience with Roam Right was excellent but then it fell apart in a big way. When you are in an emergency situation, you need the team at the other end to be very responsive and they were absolutely not! This is the first time I have ever had to make a claim with any travel insurance company. I hope this isn't a reflection of all of the companies out there.
Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. We are sorry to hear about your injury and sincerely hope you heal quickly. We apologize for the slow response from our international call line.
