It is great to have insurance, even if you never use it. Whilst on this trip, I saw emergency services for people who had to go to the local hospital in Mexico. I could not imagine having to pay for services out of pocket like that. So, I can say, this was the best money I spent on the entire trip!

Luckily we did not need to use the plan. We have had to use other plans on previous trips and we have purchased every one from Insure My Trip.

I submitted a claim for our trip because I was injured on the journey AND our flight home was canceled.
We had medical bills and additional flight and hotel bills incurred due to the cancellation. Nationwide has fought me every step of the way, requesting the same documentation OVER AND OVER, they don't want to pay the claim and I will NEVER use them again.
