The Nationwide Prime plan allows you to insure a higher trip cost than the Essential plan, and also includes higher amounts of coverage for post departure benefits such as medical and emergency medical evacuation.
This comprehensive travel insurance plan includes standard benefits, and some additional options to really tailor your insurance for your trip. The plan allows coverage for trips costing up to $30,000 per person, and provides reimbursement if a cancellation occurs due to a covered reason. Optional Cancel for Any Reason is also available in most states if all eligibility requirements are met.
The trip interruption coverage is available if you need to end your trip early due to a covered reason, and offers reimbursement up to 200% of the trip cost which can help to defray the cost of a one-way ticket home. The plan also includes coverages for baggage protection and travel delay.
This plan also offers coverage for a missed connection. If you face a delay due to a covered reason of three or more hours that causes you to miss your cruise departure, this plans reimburses up to $500 to help you rejoin the cruise and for additional meal or accommodation expenses you incur. Similarly, it also offers coverage for itinerary changes by your cruise line or tour supplier. The benefit reimburses up to $500 in the event a cruise/tour supplier makes a change to your itinerary which prevents you from participating in an activity that you had pre-paid for.
Medical and emergency medical evacuation coverage is available with this plan. This can help if you need to seek medical attention for a covered unexpected illness or injury that occurs during your trip. Also, emergency medical evacuation benefits are available if you are hospitalized and the attending physician recommends that you be transported to the nearest, better equipped hospital.
If you are worried about a pre-existing condition limiting your coverage, the earlier you purchase the plan the better. If the plan is purchased within 21 days of your initial trip payment (and all other eligibility requirements are met), then the pre-existing condition exclusion can be waived.
