Had no problems on the trip, so no need to file a claim. For that I am thankful, but I don't know how things would have worked out had there been a problem.

Fortunately, we did not have problems, so we did not have to file a claim. However, just knowing that we were covered in case of an emergency brought us great peace of mind.

I do a lot of leisure travel and because of older siblings, I usually purchase travel insurance to protect myself should anything family related come up which would prevent me from traveling. The cost for this insurance from Nationwide was well within reason, surely a lot better than losing the entire value of my trip should I have had to cancel. Nationwide had a series of plans which made choosing a plan very simple. I had a simple trip, I only needed simple coverage. The coverage I selected was more than adequate for my needs. Based on this experience, I would certainly purchase travel insurance with Nationwide again.

This was the first time i have purchased trip insurance. It was an expensive trip, and I felt the product was priced fairly.

It is difficult to give an opinion of a product when it was never used, but after going over the details while doing my price and coverage comparisons, this one seemed to have what I needed. Glad it was NEVER needed, but good having the peace of mind!

I purchased the plan in case of emergency and was satisfied with my purchase. There was a medical evacuation on our ship which made me even more grateful for having a little insurance.

Nice to know we had this plan but luckily we did not need to use it. We did do some hiking and biking so wanted to be sure we had extra medical coverage. We didn't have any flight disruptions so we were lucky we didn't need to use that portion of the insurance either.
