Easy to sign up, and affordable. This insurance gave us the peace of mind we wanted prior to, and during our first cruise. We didn't need it in the end, but we had no worries, and we didn't worry as we played the "what if" game.

The reason I bought was for the piece of mind while traveling to China. Nationwide is advertised everywhere, so hopeful if needed. Thank goodness I did not need it.

Never filed a claim so can't really say how good Nationwide would be in a real life situation. The benefits were very competitive for the price paid.

It is the first time that I take out an insurance when flying abroad, I certainly will do it again. I felt safe knowing that i was covered. I liked the person who helped me get the best coverage for me.
I am very satisfied.

As the long weekend progressed, weather and traffic got bad during our last day, we felt secure in knowing that our trip delay was covered should we not be able to get out that last day. We felt a ping at one moment about our luggage being held up in the Customs mess at Atlanta Airport, and knew we were covered. It made the holiday mess and snow on the other end of the line just another amusement during the most traveled day of the holiday crunch.
