I have no idea how good/bad the plan was because I did not file a claim.

The plan gave us total piece of mind and we were able to pick a plan that handled our concerns. We never had to use the plan, but we were happy we made the purchase and considering what was going on around us with different airlines, we felt protected if we had any issues. I will definitely use insuremytrip again for future travel.

Always wise to have insurance and not need to use it, then it is to need insurance and not hjave it.

My brother got ill so I had to reschedule my trip. Every other vendor, flight, rental car, hotel refunded my money. Nationwide refused. I have my homeowners, auto and rental property coverages with Nationwide. I thought that they were a better company than this. FYI: I'm going this week to my brother's funeral.

We purchased this insurance in April to cover a trip we were making in December and wanted coverage in the event that weather or health issues forced us to cancel. As it turned out we had no problems and did not file any claims. We have purchased trip insurance through insure my trip.com several times and only had to file a claim once.

Wow! It is a time-consuming, complicated and convoluted process to fill a simple claim. LOTS of hoops to jump through.

I never needed to file a claim. However, I did have to change my travel dates. This insurance was very accommodating.
