The initial cost of the plan was okay when I first purchased the insurance, but when I tried to add more coverage for additional expenses prior to the trip (e.g., paid for a rented an apartment in Paris), the price was outrageously high. I didn't get all the coverage that I wanted because it became too expensive.

Being older, we prefer to be cautious and have been purchasing trip insurance for our major trips. It gave us peace of mind being able to purchase insurance based on our airfare and lodging expenses. Nationwide provided a good value and reassurance.

The best news is that we had no need to use the coverage. Purchasing the plan we needed was easy, straightforward and included all details we needed to make a decision.

Plan covered everything that was expected. Just took a long time to receive refund. CBP associates who handled claim were very professional and courteous.
