It was a Good Deal for the Price , However Due to a Permit Issue with the Mexican FAA We were forced to Fly a much smaller Airplane back to Ensanada Mex Not to TJ Mex, had to ride a Bus to the Boarder.
Not sure the insurance would have even covered That? But I do like doing Business with this Company.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoy doing business with Nationwide.

    In order to have coverage under Travel Delay, you would have to experience a minimum of a 6 hour delay that resulted in "Additional Expenses (which) means any reasonable expenses for meals and lodging as well as local transportation and essential phone calls that were necessarily incurred as the result of a Hazard and that were not provided by the Common Carrier or other party free of charge."

    If your situation did involve a 6 hour delay resulting in "Additional Expenses", you may wish to file a claim with Nationwide:

    Toll Free: (888) 490-7606

We did not have to use the plan but we were relieved to know that it would have covered at least some of our expenses had we needed to delay our return because of Hurricane Dorian.
