Luckily we didn't need to use but we are surely glad we took out the insurance. People who joined our tour from other parts of the U.S. dealt with adverse weather conditions. Would not travel anymore on a large trip without insurance. Kind of like homeowner's insurance -- nice to have but hope you never need to use.

I ended up rescheduling my trip prior to departure because a connecting flight was cancelled. The airline waived change charges and I was responsible for the minimal difference in fare for the new date. With the help of InsureMyTrip, I was able to change the dates of coverage for the new itinerary rather than having to file a claim and purchase a new policy.

Price was better than what was offered through travel agency but somehow I was always nervous that if I had a claim, it would have been more difficult to fulfill on my own. Not sure why I felt that way, but fortunately it was not an issue anyway.

Always get insurance. Rarely ever use it, but good to know you're covered just in case. It's worth the peace of mind!

I have insured through Nationwide with almost all of my trips using InsureMyTrip. They are very reasonable for the coverage they offer. This was the first time I have had to file a claim and was pleasantly surprised. The customer service representatives I spoke with were very kind and helpful. They immediately sent me the forms to file and told me all of the paperwork I would need. The claim was handled very quickly with no problems at all. This is the kind of company that I like to deal with and would highly recommend them to anyone. They will continue to be the company I use in the future. Thank you Nationwide for a great experience.
