Nationwide Mutual Insurance
Nationwide is definitely not on your side! I purchased this plan for my wife's trip to Peru. Her suitcases were stolen from a bus by a team that opened the hold while the bus was rolling. The policy provided for $2000 lost luggage, about half the value of what was lost, so we filed a claim.
Nationwide did everything possible not to pay, in order by:
1. Claiming the vehicle was unattended at the time of theft thus ineligible for coverage (note, the bus was full, and moving at the time).
2. Demanding that we provide evidence of insurance coverage held by the Peruvian bus company.
3. Demanding that we file a claim with them.
4. Demanding that we await the outcome of the claim with the Peruvian bus company, even though we'd already provided evidence of the maximum they would pay out in the event the Peruvian bus company approved our claim (their maximum was ~$120).
After I threatened to go to the Insurance Commissioners of both of their home state of Florida and my home state of California, they relented and approved the claim, 3 months later, for the coverage amount, minus the $120 that the Peruvian bus company promised but that we will never see of course.
InsureMyTrip was very helpful in providing an advocate that also helped convince Nationwide to pay this claim in good faith. I will never buy another policy from Nationwide, but I am grateful for the help InsureMyTrip provided in pursuing this claim.
