We were detained 5 hours and would have preferred the option next time of more coverage before a 6 hour delay.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that you were delayed during the trip. The large majority of comprehensive policies provide a Travel Delay benefit if you are delayed en route to or from the Covered Trip for 6 or more hours or 12 or more hours due a covered Hazard. In the future, please call us at 800-487-4722 so we can direct you to the policies that require a 3 or more hour or a 5 or more hour delay for the Travel Delay benefit. Please keep in mind, the covered reasons for Travel Delay may vary slightly from plan to plan. The Travel Delay benefit typically covers reasonable additional expenses such as hotel accommodations, meals, local transportation, and telephone calls.

When Delta wouldn't provide a document that was needed for my claim, the Nationwide Mutual agent offered to call Delta to get the information. The claim was paid so we're all good. That's above and beyond service in my book.
Thank you!

I loved that I had the peace of mind of a large, nationally known company backing me. I also loved that the options in plans allowed customization and provided me with exactly what I felt was important for protection.
