How good is Nationwide? For me, it's excellent. While pressing the right buttons on the website and selecting a company and policy that fits you is important, filing a claim is what really counts. My wife and I are retired and take three to four big trips annually and always get insurance. In the summer of 2014, we planned a ten day trip to Maui and a Caribbean cruise for the fall. We then lived everyone's nightmare. On Sept 18th of 2014, our 38 year old daughter, who is a single parent that lives near us, was diagnosed with breast cancer. We knew all trips were off and our role as a parent and grandparent was greatly expanded. We were concerned with filing two claims and getting reimbursed. I filled out the paperwork with the doctors statement, visa statement, airline statements and turned in the first claim. It's important when filing a claim to think of the person who will handle it for Nationwide. Unfortunately, there are dishonest people out there who will try to commit insurance fraud. Thus I knew I needed to be complete. A week later I submitted the second claim. I was told it would take 2-3 weeks for the claim. At three weeks I sent Nationwide an email. Then ended up taking almost four weeks for the check. The reason was that both claims were combined. That was logical. Bottom line - I received checks for all my losses. Not having to fight with an insurance company was great, I don't know if I would have had the energy.

Love using InsureMyTrip! They offer the most affordable plans and provide the same coverages as any other trip insurance and maybe even more!

Purchasing travel insurance is absolutely a wonderful peace of mind. This was our third cruise, and the first two we never had any insurance. There was an incident on this cruise which caused a couple to be taken by ambulance. I hope and pray they had some kind of trip insurance. We enjoyed the whole trip without worry. A wonderful feeling! I will recommend InsureMyTrip to everyone!

I felt at ease knowing that our trip was covered. We have never had a claim, but it's nice to know that it's there if you need it. I am about to purchase coverage for another upcoming trip.

Purchased for protection in case of medical needs while out of country. Good peace of mind. I did not need to use this policy. Previous trip was delayed and similar policy helped with extra costs incurred.

This is one investment that you hope you never have to use.
We have used Insure My Trip for our insurance needs a few
times now and have recommended them to other people and
they have been very helpful and very respectful and very
friendly to all of us. THANK YOU AGAIN.

I always buy travel insurance after hearing a real life horror story from a doctor about his own medical mishap. It assures the wife and I peace of mind when on our trip, and the prices are right when I shop on InsureMyTrip.

It was good peace of mind having insurance. A neighbor of mine broke her hip one week before their cruise and lost their money!

I have been using InsureMyTrip for nearly 10 years. The customer service representatives are very out going and helpful with all my questions. In fact, I gave your name to a fellow passenger I met on this last cruise. I told him to get in contact with InsureMyTrip and stop using the cruise line for insurance. You are thorough, personable, and reasonably priced. Thank you for all that you do.
