Nationwide Choice Cruise

The Nationwide Choice Cruise plan is only available to those who will be traveling on a cruise during their trip. It offers similar coverage to the Universal Cruise plan, but with higher benefit amounts.

This plan includes important coverage such as trip cancellation and trip interruption which allows you to cancel prior to departure or interrupt after departure for a covered reason. It also includes baggage coverage, travel delay, missed connection, medical, and emergency medical evacuation coverage to list a few.

Everyone hopes for a vacation that goes off without a hitch, but there is always the chance that the unexpected may happen. The Choice Cruise plan can provide coverage so that a lost bag or a flight delay won't completely ruin your trip.

Fortunately, we didn't have any need for travel insurance for this trip. But given the uncertainties of travel, we will always get insurance beforehand, whether we end up needing it or not!

Be sure you understand the difference between Trip DELAY and Trip INTERRUPTION from the Insurer's point of view. It's a difference of a maximum benefit of your trip cost (Interruption) and a maximum of $150 daily (Delay). I still don't understand it. I was Quarantined in Switzerland during my 2-week trip after testing positive for COVID and was unable to return home as scheduled. I would consider this an Interruption of my trip. Nationwide called it a Delay. As such, I was reimbursed only $450 of my $850 costs for the 2-day interruption. Thankfully it wasn't any longer as the cheapest lodging I could find was $260 nightly. In addition, after spending 4 hours gathering the plethora of documents and receipts required and mailing it (trying to file multiple documents online was impossible), my claim was delayed for 3 months due to a backlog. I had to call multiple times to get the status of my claim. When my reimbursement finally did arrive, it was short $150 (they misread my claim and only paid for 2 days instead of 3), necessitating another call from me and a wait for final payment. I think they're reasonably priced if all you're looking for is a trip cancellation in case you get hit by a bus before your trip and can't go, but otherwise I'd look elsewhere.
