The plan provided the basics for a reasonable price. Fortunately, I didn’t need to use it, so I can’t comment on customer service or support if you need to file a claim.

I had a medical emergency while on an Alaskan Cruise. Getting a response from the company (how to file a claim, required documentation, etc.) was kind of slow, 2-3 weeks to answer an e-mail, but the claim was paid with no issues. Nationwide had the best price for my needed coverage. Overall a great value.

Although I rated everything a five star I'm not really sure how the coverage would have worked if needed. However, when researching for coverage I found the information easy to understand and the representative that I chatted with was fantastic. Having affordable coverage put my mind at ease.

Airlines lost my wife’s luggage. Tried calling your service on a Saturday evening, after being on hold for 30 minutes, your service picked up, and then transferred me to another department. After being on hold for another 10 minutes, the medical assistance group picked up. So, I was transferred to a wrong group after 40 minutes on hold, and then was told that the baggage claim people don’t work until Monday. I gave up at that point. Our luggage did come in on Sunday, so I wouldn’t have needed a monetary compensation.

The policy had the coverage I wanted, with a fair price. It's easy to compare and purchase on insuremytrip.com . The only thing missing is a card for your wallet that you can print.
