Appreciate that we can get a plan to insure the basic tour cost. While traveling within the United States, we don't feel it's necessary to emphasize the extra insurance for luggage, medical, etc.

The only issue was that I didn't know that I had to buy the insurance when I made the initial payment. You are unclear as to when this occurs - is the initial payment when I make the hold payment? Or is it when I make the initial 50% of trip payment?

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The Initial Trip Payment is the very first time any money of any kind was paid for any part of your trip. Even if the payment you made was refundable at one point in time, it is still considered the initial trip payment. The redemption of points or miles, while not an actual monetary exchange, would still constitute as an initial trip payment if they were the first transaction you made for your trip. In determining the initial trip payment date, the insurance providers claims department will request specific documentation showing the date the credit card number was provided to the travel supplier or when the check was written.

If there were unforeseen issues, we knew that Nationwide would take care of them. The cost of the insurance was very reasonable.

We filed a trip cancellation claim due to the death of my grandfather. We received full payment in about 2 weeks with no issues.

We used InsureMyTrip because we had a split stay, 6 nights Disney World, 5 nights Carnival cruise, and 3 more nights Disney World. To get insurance separately through Disney and Carnival would have cost more than double the cost of the plan we bought from Nationwide on InsureMyTrip.com. It was very easy to purchase and we got the coverage we wanted.
