Bought this policy for a family cruise. 4 days before the cruise a family member who was also traveling with us became unexpectedly ill requiring hospitalization and subsequent last minute cancellation of our trip. Once we filed the paperwork, it took about 3 weeks to receive our reimbursements from Nationwide. No problems. Paperwork was reasonable. Received coverage as promised.

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.

We were, unfortunately, unable to go on our cruise due to a family emergency. We filed the claim with Nationwide and received a check in less than two weeks! Prompt, courteous service!!

Thank goodness we had a great time and did not have to make a claim on our insurance. I did feel secure, however, knowing that I had the plan. It was comprehensive and value priced.

We did not have to file any claims. I chose this plan as it provided the coverage for a great price! Much cheaper than what the cruiseline offered and had all the coverage I needed.
