Becoming a RoamRight Partner or Affiliate

How do I partner with RoamRight?
It’s easy to become a RoamRight business partner or affiliate. Simply contact us. One of our regional sales managers will reach out to you to walk you through it.

What are your commission rates?
We look at each account on a case-by-case basis. While commission rates vary by plan, a RoamRight regional sales manager will review your current commission structure and requirements. As a RoamRight business partner, you’ll receive the same commission regardless of whether a traveler buys online or over the phone. Additionally, there are no administrative fees so you collect a commission on the entire sale.

As a home-based travel agent, can I sell RoamRight?
Yes! We do not require agency identifiers (True, CLIA, or IATAN) to offer travel insurance. So if you want to offer RoamRight, contact us. We’ll be happy to work with you!

When should I offer insurance to my travelers?
Statistics show that the best time to offer travel insurance is during the initial booking process. This is when your travelers are most likely to choose the extra protection provided by RoamRight. There are many factors that can sway a person into purchasing insurance. A few of the most common considerations include:

  • Are they willing to risk losing non-refundable trip deposits?
  • Will their health insurance cover them in their destination?
  • Will their health insurance pay to a foreign provider directly, or will they need to submit for reimbursement when they return home?
  • Is there likelihood that weather can impact their travel plans (winter storms or hurricane season?)

RoamRight Policies and Benefits

Do you have an option to waive pre-existing medical conditions?
Yes. For certain RoamRight policies, if a traveler purchases the policy within 21 days of making the initial trip deposit, and meets other criteria outlined in the plan, any exclusions relating to pre-existing medical conditions are waived.

What is considered a pre-existing condition?
For most RoamRight plans, we define pre-existing conditions as: Any Injury, Sickness or condition of You, a Traveling Companion or Your and/or Your Traveling Companion’s Family Member for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received within the 180 day period ending on the Effective Date. Sicknesses or conditions are not considered pre-existing if the Sickness or condition for which prescribed drugs or medicine is taken remains controlled without any change in the required prescription.

We have a few select plans where the look-back period is shortened to 60 days.

Is medical coverage primary or excess?
Most RoamRight plans offer emergency medical coverage in excess of a traveler’s primary health insurance. However, during an emergency, to speed the process, we will function as a traveler’s primary insurance and then subrogate with their primary. Our Pro Plus plan includes primary medical coverage.

What is supplier default and how does RoamRight protect travelers from it?
When a travel insurance plan is purchased within 21 days of the initial trip deposit, travelers are protected against bankruptcy or default that causes a complete cessation of travel services, provided it occurs more than 14 days following the effective date of coverage.
