I looked on line for the company that would give me the benefits I needed for the least amount of money. I have used other companies. The questions I had were well and courteously answered, which made me confident in my choice.
I claim my lost cell phone, and I received their check after 3 weeks.
I had to cancel the trip for medical reasons and it was very easy to file a claim and work with them.
I didn't have to make a claim, but I thought the explanation of benefits was clear and straightforward and I really liked the summary page they provided to take with you that had the information about contacting them while you are travelling.
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.
The trip was cancelled. My son was diagnosed with cancer a few days after I bought the insurance. He did have surgery before I bought the insurance and RoamRight denied the claim on that basis.
I found it a little difficult to find medical evacuation insurance only, not as a part of a general travel insurance policy. Also, a friend called your customer service department directly to obtain quotes. She was sent more choices than I found on-line. That being said, I found, and purchased, what I was looking for.
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.
Unfortunately my dream vacation to Fiji did not turn out as planned. The second day at our destination resort, I fell and broke my pelvis in 2 places. I called Roam Right and they were there to help me get home. Sadly it took a week to get home as they flew 2 nurses to Fiji to accompany us on the trip home. We used our original plane reservations and they upgraded me to business class. I have been home for over a week now and have not heard from them as to our next step. I plan to call them.
I have been trying to adjust to life in a wheel chair for the next few weeks., It being Christmas time has probably caused some delays.
RoamRight emailed the appropriate paperwork prior to my departure and that is the only communication prior to my trip so it isn't possible to rate my experience prior to contacting customer service. However, I had items stolen during my trip and had to contact them to file a claim.
I contacted RoamRight by phone and they emailed me the claim form. They did not inform me at the time that I could have filed online and they did not discuss the time frame or procedure in any length. They also did not tell me what to do if I did not have a receipt so I had to make another call to get more information. I faxed the claim and received an email notice the claim was assigned. I waited 8 days to contact the claims adjuster. I emailed and received the same automated response I got 8 days earlier, which was we have your claim, but no further information was given . I decided to call the adjuster instead and was not allowed to speak to them and was told " it takes 2-3 weeks" and that is standard but your near the top of the list so that's good. It had not even been reviewed or seen by the adjuster so it takes 3 weeks before they even look at the claim. The customer representative was curt and somewhat sarcastic when I informed her that one of the items I was doing without was a cell phone that was stolen. She thought it was ridiculous that I could be living without a cell phone due to the claim with them. Because cell phones cost over $800 I would like to at least be partially reimbursed before I buy a new one. Therefore, I am living without one. Her attitude was not one of wanting to help. Overall, they have not been very informative, helpful, or efficient. I would not recommend them. We will see if they even do what they are supposed to do in the end.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As you mentioned, in order to thoroughly and accurately examine each claim, it takes 2-3 weeks from when the claim is submitted for an examiner to make a decision.
In your case, a decision on your claim was made on 8/23 and you should receive the details of the decision shortly.
Thank you for posting a review.
We apologize for your negative experience with RoamRight.
