Nationwide Mutual Insurance Choice Cruise
This was only our second time buying trip insurance and Nationwide was very patient explaining to me the rules and procedures.

We had two small claims. 1) We had a boating accident on our trip, the day before we boarded our cruise, and my partner injured his back. When we got home, we submitted a claim for a doctor visit with X-rays and a prescription. 2) While onboard our cruise, I had to see the ship's doctor to be tested for the flu and also get a prescription, and I submitted a claim for that also.

Both claims were small, but they were handled very well by Nationwide. The only potential glitch was that I knew ahead of time that I would need to submit the doctor's report in order for my claim to be paid, but our cruise line for some odd reason, gave me a very hard time with that. The doctor would not give me a report - he said I'd have to call and ask the corporate office for it when we got home. However, when I called, they did not want to send it to me either! I eventually did get it, but meanwhile I explained the situation to Nationwide, and provided them with other documents proving the claim, and they were very cooperative. Within a little over a week of submitting all of the required documents, I had a reimbursement check for the full amount of both claims.

Fortunately, we did not have any big claim, but if we ever do and they handle them as well as they did these, I will continue to be very happy with them!

Spouses appendix burst about 6 weeks before our cruise. Contacted Nationwide to understand what I would need to supply for a reimbursement. Once her surgery was completed and we had the doctors report I filed a claim. Within the time frame quoted me by the agent, we received the checks for requested refund amount.

Being cruise specific was nice. Easy to buy on this site. Have never had a claim with any travel insurance and hope we never do. I trust they would pay as agreed, however it's sad to see so many reviews of many companies with claims issues.

I traveled from Maryland to Alaska and Canada with my parents who are in the late 70's and both have health issues. Whether I travel with them or not I now always purchase health insurance in case I have to drop everything and take care of them. Thankfully we had no incidents on this trip, but I always use Insure My Trips, read the reviews and get advice from the agents. I know people think it can be expensive, but on another cruise to Alaska while we were out a man killed his wife and the cruise ended. Those people did get a refund for the cruise line, but there are so many other expenses. Hopefully having this insurance would have helped with all the other incurred costs. You just never know. 10% or a little more is worth it, or at least to me.

Since we had no claim, it's hard to evaluate. It did have a "Cancel for any reason" option which we needed for this trip.

Check other policies. My cell phone went missing day 1 of our cruise and was never turned in. I was told to do a formal report to file with my travel insurance. I called to file a claim under the baggage portion of the policy and was told that cell phones were specifically excluded. I would think it would be considered a "personal item" and still can't find anything in writing on the policy details I was sent regarding exclusions. I obviously made a wrong choice on this policy. Disappointed. My cell phone locator finally went off a day after I returned home showing it was turned on in a port stop. I now believe a crew member had stolen my phone.

The best insurance policy is to have it and not use it.
