We got insurance to help cover issues, which luckily didn't come up. But it was good to have peace of mind in case we needed to use it!

I want to thank Nationwide and Oncall for the excellent service in getting me home from out of the country as well as the coverage and (as promised) responded to my claim in just under 15 business days. All of the staff that my wife and I spoke with during this difficult time were friendly, efficient and provided answers to all of our questions. I received an additional invoice from the ambulance company after I filed the original claim and you had approved. I called to ask how I should submit this additional claim and you gave an answer and a simple process on how to send it.
Thank you to all and we will certainly use your insurance again in the future and have already recommended you to family and friends.

Insurance is something you buy but hope to never use. So far that has been the case for my international travel.

We filed a claim when my spouse fell down some stairs and broke his leg. We were very happy with the claims process and outcome. We bought the Nationwide Essential Comprehensive coverage.

Nationwide communicated with me just before my trip to remind me of how to contact them if needed, as well as after my trip to be sure everything went well. While I did not need to use my insurance, I appreciated knowing they were there.

Essential coverage for a cruise is a must. Would not go a on any trip out of the country without coverage. Found this site provides good coverage at a most reasonable rate. I would recommend and have recommended to friends.

The vacation was wonderful. Knowing I was covered going to a different country, I relaxed and just enjoyed myself.
