It is hard to review since I did not need to file a claim but it was certainly assuring to have it.

Once purchased, travel insurance is something I tend to forget about until needed. So far, another trip without cause to use insurance. I'm okay with that. Good travels everyone!

We had to cancel the trip due to what was happening in Barcelona. The airport was cloed and rioting was all over the city. People could not even get to the airport. This went on all week. We were supposed to fly on Wednesday and cancelled the trip. American airlines finally refunded my money. On Monday 53 people were injured at the the airport and the worst day of rioting in the city was Friday.

We did not go. Onthe 14th, the airport was closed and 53 people were injured there.I cancelled the flight on the morning of the 16th due to problems all over the city.People could not even get to the airport, ships docked in other cities and rioting broke out all over. This to me was terrorist attacks created by the Catalon seperatists against the Spanish government. American Airlines finally refunded my money. The insurance was useless.

    Thank you for your feedback. We regret that your Nationwide Essential plan did not meet your expectations.

    Trip cancellation is a standard benefit offered with most travel insurance comprehensive plans. This travel insurance benefit provides reimbursement of your pre-paid, non-refundable expenses should you need to cancel your trip unexpectedly for a covered reason.

    In all comprehensive travel insurance policies there will be an included list of covered reasons for cancellation. These are situations the insurance company considers legitimate as factors in making the decision to cancel your trip. It’s essential that you are familiar with this list of covered reasons in any insurance policy you’re considering purchasing since these are guidelines by which any claim you may need to file will be judged. The plan certificate is available for you to read before making a purchase.

    After reading through the plan certificate, you may not be comfortable with the list of covered reasons provided to you. You may need more flexibility in making the decision to cancel your trip, you may want to consider purchasing a Cancel for Any Reason benefit.

    InsureMyTrip is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and our customer care representatives are licensed insurance agents who are able to recommend the most cost effective plans which will cover the travelers primary concerns. If you would like to receive assistance in obtaining a quote or purchasing a policy, please call us at 800-487-4722 as we would be happy to assist you.
