It was very easy to purchase an insurance plan from Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. This is the second time we have purchased a plan from them. It is very easy to do and at a reasonable price. The insurance we purchased seemed like it would have been the coverage we would need if a problem occurred. We were fortunate enough that there was no need to put it to use.

The plan seems good. I didn't need to file a claim so.i'm not really sure about the fine print. But it gave me peace of mind and the price was very reasonable.

With the ZIKA virus concerns in Mexico, and me going to visit my pregnant daughter there, I was unhappy that the coverage did not allow me to cancel my trip so that she could come home to the States immediately.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The only benefit that can be used to cancel a trip due to the fear of contracting Zika virus is Cancel for Any Reason.

    Cancel for Any Reason coverage typically requires the following requirements (varies by plan):

    1) Purchase within 10-30 days of your initial trip deposit
    2) Insure 100% of your pre-paid, non-refundable trip cost
    3) Cancel the trip 2 or more days prior to departure

    While Cancel for Any Reason does give you the flexibility to cancel your trip due to an increased fear of Zika, it does not protect 100% of your trip cost. Depending upon the plan, Cancel for Any Reason benefit will reimburse 50%, 70%, or 75% of your insured trip cost.

    Please call us at 800-487-4772 if you have any questions about insuring against Zika related events, or the Cancel For Any Reason benefit.

This plan was referred to me by a veteran Cruise maniac. The price is very reasonable and covers the basics for my cruise. One MUST have cruise insurance before leaving the states.
