Had to cancel due to illness. Nationwide quickly paid for my non refundable trip costs. First time that I had to make a claim but Nationwide was a great help. I always book travel insurance and will use Nationwide again.

Definitely easy to apply one insurance plan to the entire trip to cover flights, hotels, excursions, etc. Even though I did not have to utilize the plan, it always gives me peace of mind for the unexpected.

Very pleased with the coverage and price; very thankful there was no need to file a claim but felt very covered if we would have needed it.

I’m glad I had the plan and didn’t have to use it. It’s like having a security blanket around me if things should go array.

I had previously purchased this insurance for previous trips. On some of the trips I did have issues where I filed a claim. My claims were verified once the proper paperwork had been filled out and sent in. The claims were professionally and diligently taken care without any hassles. Full reimbursement of the claims amounts were issued in a timely manner. This is why I always will choose Nationwide Mutual insurance for my travel insurance needs. This trip went as planned and no claims were filed.
Tom B. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

While the true test of an insurance policy/company comes with filing a claim, thankfully I did not have the misfortune of having to try it out. However, based on coverage needs at a competitive cost we choose Nationwide for almost all our travels.
