I claimed, because I could not make the trip due cancellation of flight ticket by airline without my knowledge.
Roam right says that is not covered.
Why we getting insurance which does not cover this situation?
I will tell everyone, everywhere, that Roamright is no insurance to buy. I had most terrible experience with this insurance..
Review Updated: 09/16/2014
Agent I talked with was rude, not helpful.
My flight was cancelled by airline without my knowledge.
I found out 2 days before the trip. After I arranged everything thing, packed fully. How that is not covered in insurance ?
What is travel insurance for?
With this result, I will never take Roam right ever again.
We have reviewed your situation and, as you stated, your travel insurance policy does not provide coverage in the event that a passenger’s ticket is cancelled by the airline. Typical travel insurance policies, including RoamRight’s, provide coverage for when an airline cancels or delays an entire flight, not an individual passenger.
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.
For the second time I have found the insurance company to be the best value for the money
Since Medicare doesn't cover international travel, I was pleased to find emergency medical coverage and other services at a reasonable rate - $56 for both my husband and myself for an 18-day trip. Thanks for giving me peace of mind.
I claim my lost cell phone, and I received their check after 3 weeks.
I had a slight problem when I first bought the insurance (confirmation email went to gmail spam!), but the representative on the phone was very helpful.
We also purchased a policy last year for our trip to Italy. We had to file a claim for trip interruption due to weather. We were totally reimbursed for our losses. We chose Roam Right again because they were so easy to work with last year. This year we unfortunately have to file a claim for medical costs. Hopefully, we will have anther good experience.
I was informed by the agent on how to best purchase the coverage I needed and not to over insure. I had to submit a claim prior to departure due to an accident. I sent in the letters from my doctors and the claim was processed and paid within 10 days. My travel partner was also insured and did not go on the trip since she did not want to go with a different room mate. Her claim was also handled in a timely manner.
I never went on my trip. Did wish the customer service person had been a bit friendlier and warmer. I was feeling as if he thought I was wasting his time when I called to ask questions about the cancelled trip in terms of my insurance, and wished he had said just a simple, sorry you had to cancel. I had to cancel the trip because of my significant other's illness. Not being married, there was no coverage, and I hadn't bought my policy in time for cancel for any reason. Perhaps emphasizing somewhere the importance of timely purchase would be good.
After my flight home was cancelled with both baggage and flight postponed 24 hrs I called yr agent from Charlotte Airport and explained my situation. I was told to keep any receipts, no problem. After arriving home without luggage as it was "still in St Thomas " I explained to yr agent that I would need to purchase a few items such as a hair brush and undergarments. Much to my surprise your coverage does not apply to flights home unless my bags are never recovered. This info was not printed on my coverage selection page I had in my hand and Im sure it was not outlined as important for me to know when I purchased the policy or when I called from Charlotte. As I still would have purchased trip cancellation insurance from some provider who probably has the same deceptive marketing techniques, I can tell you it wont be your company in the future. Lack of transparency and accountability in this world is so annoying and you obviously care only about your bottom line not how you achieve it. Guess I'll have to purchase trip insurance from the number 2 carrier next trip.
Under the Baggage Delay section detailed in the Description of Coverage you received for your policy, it states that coverage is provided if your “checked baggage is delayed or misdirected by a Common Carrier for more than twelve (12) hours, while on a Trip, except for travel to final destination or place of residence.” Your luggage was delayed on your flight home, so coverage is not provided for your circumstances. You will find that this is standard across the travel insurance industry. However, since your flight was postponed 24 hours, you are eligible for trip delay benefits such as additional food or hotel expenses that were incurred due to the delay.
