Leading Travel Insurance Company Protects the Next Big Vacation
TOWSON, Md. (May 29, 2013) – Last year Americans took more than 60 million international trips, experiencing new thrills and lifelong memories, along with potentially lost luggage, missed flight connections and other travel hiccups. As families plan their next “far flung” vacation – whether domestic or abroad – RoamRight, a leading travel insurance company and division of Arch Insurance Company, offers a variety of tailored insurance programs to protect the trip investment, as well as the extraordinary adventures ahead.
The decision to purchase travel insurance is a simple, cost-effective solution providing peace of mind for overall family health and financial investment while traveling. From frugal to adventure travel, RoamRight has created programs to fit every family’s travel preferences, keeping them safe as they cross the country or circle the globe. Whether on a Kenyan safari or white water rafting through the Grand Canyon, every RoamRight Elite, Preferred or Essential policy purchased for an adult includes the coverage of one child under 18 at no additional cost.
A sampling of program offerings include:
- Medical — Many healthcare providers do not extend coverage outside of the United States, making it difficult (and expensive) to see a qualified physician when a child catches the flu or Dad has an allergic reaction to an exotic new food. Medical evacuation plans are also available, which transports injured travelers to a higher level of medical care and ultimately home, while still taking care of the remaining family members on the trip.
- Adventure — Adventure sports vacation insurance covers activities including snowmobiling, scuba diving, snow skiing, parasailing and more. As children get older and daredevils begin to emerge, it is important they have access to the best care should they need it. From skiing the Alps to snorkeling in the Maldives, adventure coverage is the option for a family of thrill-seekers and action enthusiasts.
- Active — Active traveler insurance is a great option for families with younger children who may set out to enjoy active experiences, but not adventure sports. This coverage also protects pre-purchased activities, such as golf and boating, as well as any sports equipment that could be lost or stolen during travel.
- Trip Cancellation — From an unexpected work emergency to inclement weather, there are endless reasons why travelers need to postpone or cancel vacations. Whether a hurricane threatens the Caribbean or Grandma has been ordered to stay home, families are covered. Trip cancellation allows rescheduling of flights, hotel stays, pre-purchased experiences and more without losing savings.
Recently, one family used RoamRight travel insurance when their cruise vacation went awry. Their flight from their hometown to the cruise terminal was diverted due to weather, forcing them to miss the ship’s departure. Hoping to catch the cruise ship and its next port of call, the family made alternative flight plans. Unfortunately, that second flight was delayed due to mechanical problems. Ultimately, the family returned home, having never stepped foot on a cruise ship. With the travel insurance policy they had purchased, RoamRight was able to reimburse them for the money they paid toward the cruise tickets, as well as cover their out-of-pocket funds for unexpected hotels, meals and transportation. RoamRight is dedicated to protecting families during their travel mishaps.
