We didn't have to use the plan we purchased, but were glad to have it. Kind of hard to critique a plan with out seeing how it really works, but all went well, and we didn't need it.

My mother and I booked a trip to Europe but shortly before we left my mother had an accident so we were unable to go. She used a different Travel Insurance company so I submitted identical paperwork- doctors letters, confirmations, cancellations, credit card details, etc - to both companies. My mother’s company sent her a refund check within a month with no further need of proof of documentation. Nationwide sent me more emails asking for identical paperwork, letters of cancellation and other information which I had already sent. Weeks later I received a check but I did not get the full refund I was entitled to as they deducted amounts I had paid. As it had taken so much time I accepted the final amount offered but will definitely be using the other Travel Insurance company in the future.

Being that I did not file a claim I really can't provide a valid assessment. However, it provide peace of mind.

I’d actually like a plan with less coverage. For instance, I don’t need extra health coverage abroad.

This plan was great! We had no problems on our trip but it was assuring that we were covered. This plan was much cheaper than the one offered by our travel agent. Would definitely purchase again.
