It is difficult to judge the insurance when you don’t have a claim!! I did like the bon voyage email prior to my trip.

Filed a claim for luggage lost by the airline. Nationwide paid the full amount for the delay AND the loss. Very happy! Would buy Nationwide again.

But, keep in mind: 1) You need receipts for the items that were lost in your luggage! Buying online (like Amazon, REI...any site that keeps purchase records) helps a great deal here. 2) It takes a number of months to file claim and receive payment. First must get airline confirmation that it's lost, then file claim with airline, then with Nationwide. 3) Keep boarding passes, luggage receipts, airline lost baggage paperwork...you'll need it all. Do all this and the claim was relatively easy.

Difficult to actually rate either the company or the plan without having filed any claims. The actual proof of how good or bad the company is , has to do with how responsive they are in handling claims.

Did not use the plan so I do not know if it was useful or a value.

We were quite comfortable working with this company. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is that, thankfully, we didn't need to file a claim. So a true test of how good it is, or not, would be in how they handled any adverse situation. But we would certainly come back to them for future travel should the opportunity arise. Thank you!

I was shocked at how easy it was to get my claim processed. I thought there would be numerous "hoops" to jump through but settled quickly and hassle-free. I would definitely recommend and have already purchased again on my rescheduled trip.

Happy to report that I did not need to use this coverage. I purchased it for a cruise because after being pressured to buy insurance through the cruise company within 2 weeks of my purchase (which was almost one year in advance), I searched online and found I could buy similar coverage for less than 1/2 the price. After purchasing this coverage, I realized I could have waited until right before the trip to buy it. I called insuremytrip to ask if I could cancel and they were very helpful in refunding my money immediately. I was confident about buying it again when the time came. I was very grateful to have found this service. It gave me comfort while traveling to have coverage through a nationally recognized company.

The plan offered the coverage I wanted at such a reasonable price. It's a great option and at this price there's no reason to travel without travel insurance.
