It was a good plan and the cost was very reasonable. Fortunately we did not need to use it.

It was reassuring to know that I had this coverage even if I did not have to use it. Better to have and not need than to need and not have this insurance for my trip.

My wife and I have traveled with another couple for the last 15 -20 years. We get along great and in my wife's case know each other since childhood. Anyway, not to prolong the story, we had planned our vacation this year for Hawaii - several days on Honolulu and then a cruise around the other islands. A week or so before the trip the spouse of our travel companions had some bad results to medical tests she took and as it turns out needed open heart surgery. As a result of this we certainly did not want to travel while she was undergoing this procedure. After submitting all of our documentation to Nationwide, within less then two weeks and without any questions beyond the documentation we submitted, we received a check in full for our entire trip. That is service personified.

PS: Most important, our friend's wife had the surgery yesterday and is doing well. That is the best news!

Always better to have and feel protected with insurance just in case. Not many detailed comments since I didn't have to use it. I felt price was a bit high, but got least expensive as to what was offered.

Had no problems on the trip, so no need to file a claim. For that I am thankful, but I don't know how things would have worked out had there been a problem.
