Fortunately we did not need to file claims. Thank you for checking in with me prior to the flight and a follow up after the flight.

We made one trip without trip insurance and it ended up costing us thousands of $. It is worth the peace of mind to have this insurance when you are going on an expensive, pre-paid, non-refundable vacation.

It is great to have peace of mind to go away without additional worries. And knowing that you're covered if something unusual happens is one of them.

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.
