For me, the value of this type insurance is the amount of medical evacuation coverage it provides. You can buy policies for about the same amount which do not provide the same medical evacuation coverage.

We had to change our travel plans due to the hurricane. We had not made any claims against the insurance company. They were very helpful and switched our insurance to the new destination without having to buy a new policy.

We filed a claim for medical reasons and received a full refund within a timely manner. Customer service at Nationwide was patient, friendly and helpful both when selecting a plan and when needing to file a claim. I recommend Nationwide as it truly is "on your side!"

Glad I bought this travel insurance for my cruise, and most importantly that I or my boyfriend did NOT have to use it.

Unfortunately my cruise was cancelled, but fortunately the cruise line reimbursed us for the cost of the cruise. I didn't insure our airfare because it was partially paid w/ skymiles and that was my own fault for doing it that way. Since the cruise line only reimbursed our cruise cost we ended up paying a lot out of pocket because of our flights. I have always been very happy with the fight insurance we buy and I'm sure it would have worked great under normal circumstances.

Since I didn't need to use insurance, I'm not sure if all items were covered. However, the price was great and I felt confident having it. Would definitely use it again.

The peace of mind when flying and sailing during this crazy weather is worth the price. Glad we didn't have a claim.
