Luckily, we didn't have to use it, so I have no idea what kind of hassle it would be to file a claim.

I can not give a positive or negative review, because I did not have to use insurance. But, it was good to know I had insurance for unforeseen emergency. Rating may have been different if I used insurance

It’s good that there was no need to file a claim, which makes it difficult to rate the policy. We budgeted the policy into our planned spend, so yes affordable, but I suppose it can always cost less. I’m glad we had the coverage, and also glad it was not necessary to file a claim.

My favorable rating is based on the peace of mind the plan gave me. As I did not file a claim, I can't rate the plan on its response to a claim.

Fortunately, My trip went smoothly and I did not have to file any claims. But the peace of mind that I could was worth the price.

I had to make a trip delay claim due to Hurricane Irma stranding me in DC for a few days. All of my meal and lodging expenses were covered (I stayed within the limit fairly easily) and Nationwide was actually really fast in providing payment. It was the airline that took the longest just to get me a travel delay letter (no surprise there). I'd recommend this plan, it paid for itself.

Great value for a great plan! Easy process to compare and purchase a plan. We were pleased that we did not have to make a claim. The best reviews of these plans is listening to people who actually had to make a claim.
