The vacation was wonderful. Knowing I was covered going to a different country, I relaxed and just enjoyed myself.
Thank you

Since we did not need to use the coverage it’s hard to provide a lot of feed back. But, based on all I read, it covered the items/concerns we had prior to taking the trip. We felt comfortable that if any illness occurred with family or traveling companions, we had coverage. And, if there were delays with the trip or lost luggage, we were covered.

My flight to Aruba was canceled because JetBlue had staffing issues and I arrived in Aruba one day later. I incurred a $385 hotel cost which was nonrefundable. JetBlue did absolutely nothing for me and now Nationwide denied my claim because my flight needed to be canceled because of weather. Do not use this company. They will find a reason not to pay your simple claim.

    Thank you for your reply. In order to receive payment from the company under Trip Interruption, the interruption must be caused by a covered reason. Unfortunately there is no Trip Interruption coverage if Jet Blue cancels a flight because an employee called in sick. You also did not qualify for reimbursement under Trip Delay since you did not incur any additional travel expenses.

    A supervisor at Nationwide did review the call logs and confirmed that there would be no coverage under this policy based on the information that you provided.

Very easy process to review and purchase coverage. Price was better than what the travel agent offered.

We were scheduled to go to Aruba in May, but my wife became ill and we cancelled.
What the resort didn't refund Nationwide did including what we paid to the airlines (used points for some of the cost).
The Nationwide rep that worked with me on the refund was very helpful.
We rescheduled the trip and had no qualms getting trip insurance from Nationwide.

So very pleased I purchased this plan as I needed to cancel my trip last minute and the only out of pocket costs I did not get reimbursed for was the cost of the policy itself!

We use Insure my Trip for all our travel. We made a medical claim several years ago and we had no problems with getting reimbursed. I would highly recommend this company!
