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.

I called your 24 hour assistant line twice to file a claim and they stated they would email me forms. They didn't.had to call four times to get forms emails to me
This was a great insurance policy! I had an issue with my bags not arriving at my final destination and they handled it. I was relieved to get reimbursed for the things I otherwise would not have bought.
Right before I left I couldn't find the policy
I called and talked to Samantha
In less than a minute she found it and emailed it to me
Thus far, interactions with RoamRight have been entirely online. I have submitted all paperwork and am waiting for a determination of the claim. I am a bit surprised that I haven't been contacted by a live person, but I have received periodic e-mails from costumer service so I am being patient.
I found that calling RoamRight was easy and incurred a very short wait time. The first time I called, I got a quick and definitive answer as to whether we would be covered by cancellation due to illness. The second time, I was asking some questions about filling out the claim form, and I got those answers clearly and definitively. In both cases, the people answering were friendly and informative. I have not yet heard an official resolution of my claim, but assuming all goes well, I will definitely use RoamRight again.
Easy to purchase a travel insurance plan. Trip was delayed and so contacted customer service for more info on the coverage for the delay and they were helpful. Filing a claim this week. We have purchased travel insurance quite a few other times but this is the first time we are filing a claim. From other reviews it seems like the process is not too complicated. We would definitely purchase the plan again.
I've used Roam Right before and will continue to use them for all my travels. Customer service is outstanding!! I'd give it a lot more than 5 stars if I could.
easy to purchase
coverage looked great
price was good
gave me reassurance
We had to change our flights and accommodations due to a death in the immediate family. Roam Right handled everything very professionally. I had to resubmit some copies but the claim was processed quickly and Roam Right reimbursed us for the full amount. We always purchase travel insurance when we travel overseas but this was our first claim. We will definitely choose Roam Right again in the future.
