The company also offers Pro and Pro Plus plans, but they are only available through third-party travel companies like cruise providers and travel agents.
Keep reading our RoamRight review for pros and cons of purchasing trip insurance with this provider.
RoamRight’s standard plans offer lots of coverage upgrade options, which aren’t available with most competing insurance companies. This makes their coverage limits and add-ons more flexible than most competing providers. Additional upgrades are available to offer coverage for renting a car, sports and business rental equipment, and participating in hazardous or extreme sports like scuba diving.
Your trips are covered by standard trip interruption insurance and trip cancelation insurance with each travel insurance package. Additionally, this provider offers provisions for Cancel for Work Reasons, as well as an upgrade that lets you Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR), as long as the plan is purchased within 21 days of your first payment for the upcoming trip.
This company offers a mobile app with several benefits, in addition to quick access to their travel insurance policy. App features include the following:
Residents of most states have a 14-day money back guarantee with RoamRight. If they aren’t satisfied, customers can cancel their policy for a refund.
RoamRight Preferred and Elite plans offer to cover one child under 18 per each covered adult. This is a definite plus for parents when shopping for a travel insurance policy; however, it is not an option on the basic plan with this insurance provider.
Several plans include evacuation coverage not just for a medical emergency, but for additional non-emergency reasons like political unrest or security evacuations.
The Essential, Preferred, and Elite travel plans have a $50 deductible for medical coverage, though there are optional upgrades to eliminate the deductibles on both the Preferred and Elite plans.
RoamRight offers a hazardous sports upgrade for the Elite, Pro, and Pro Plus packages, but only one of these is available to the general public.
It's great that RoamRight offers to cover pre-existing medical conditions, but with a 180-day lookback period, it may be hard to find many customers who haven't had a medical condition in the last six months.
