Fortunately my trip went smoothly and there was no need to file a claim. My review was based solely on the coverage offered for the premium paid. The premium was very reasonable compared to what was being offered by other companies.

Information provided by the agent and carrier was reasonably clear and understandable. The follow up prior to departure was good and timely, helping to gather information that needs to be carried while on the trip. We did not have to test this policy so I can't rate that aspect of its quality. As with any insurance, its worthless if you don't understand it, know how or when it takes affect, or how to call on the services its provides while on the trip. I forwarded electric copies of the policy to myself, spouse, and family in the event I lacked the ability or capability to put various emergency facilities in affect.

Comparing plans and making the purchase online was easy. The plan added good coverage and made us feel relaxed about a potential strike with our airline.Thankfully we did not have to file any claims.

I can only vouch that the insurance premiums for the coverage is a very good value. Having travel insurance provides much peace of mind. However, a truly valid review is one from a customer who has filed a claim with Nationwide, and I have not.

It's hard to rate a service until you need to use it. However knowing you have coverage is a good piece of mind, and one less thing you have to worry about. I recommend everyone carry a policy while on a cruise.

It's impossible to evaluate how the plan did if I didn't use it. However, being an insurance agent & having more than the average guy's familiarity with insurance, I have found Nationwide to be the best & most reasonably priced policy to choose. Should I ever have a claim I assume they'll come thru for me. If not, they'll be dealing with a formidable opponent. Thank you.
