We did not need to use the plan, but it did give us great peace of mind to know we had it.

Unfortunately my cruise was cancelled, but fortunately the cruise line reimbursed us for the cost of the cruise. I didn't insure our airfare because it was partially paid w/ skymiles and that was my own fault for doing it that way. Since the cruise line only reimbursed our cruise cost we ended up paying a lot out of pocket because of our flights. I have always been very happy with the fight insurance we buy and I'm sure it would have worked great under normal circumstances.

I did not need to make a claim so I don't know how well they would actually perform or if they would pay up?

Don't know what to say. I didn't have to use it, but we have used it for past trips. It seems to be a good plan.

Luckily I did not have to file a claim, so I do not have much information for a review.

thank goodness I did not have to use it! I felt it would have been good coverage, had I needed to use it.

We have used Nationwide for our last two trips. Due to flight delays on our first trip, we had to overnight in Miami and Nationwide covered all of the cost with no hassles. I highly recommend! However, if you have a flight delay it helps to keep all of your boarding passes to use for documentation of the flight changes. Boarding pass for the flight missed and pass for the rebooked flight.
