The policy had the coverage I wanted, with a fair price. It's easy to compare and purchase on insuremytrip.com . The only thing missing is a card for your wallet that you can print.

Fortunately we did not have to use the policy , but glad that I had it . Friends have been the other countries and had accidents or health issues and several turned into major problems . That is why I always get this .

I'm so glad I had this travel insurance in place. A few days before our trip I was diagnosed with a rare cancer. This was a complete shock as I was in great health. I remember telling the agent that I'd have to be dead not to take this trip, it was such an important event for us, a real "bucket list" thing. Fortunately, my doctors all agreed that taking the trip was perfectly fine and we could deal with the needed surgery afterwards. The peace of mind this policy gave me was invaluable, even though I did not end up needing to make a claim.

Very dissatisfied with the Nationwide coverage. They used a "fine print" detail to deny my claim. The travel company I used closed its business and my trip was canceled. But the company has not filed for bankruptcy and that was the excuse used to deny the claim. I provided ample documentation of the business closure but that was insufficient to approve the claim. I would never recommend Nationwide to anyone.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We appreciate you using InsureMyTrip for your travel insurance needs. We understand that it is never pleasant to receive a denial for reimbursement under the Trip Cancellation coverage. However, your reason to cancel your trip must be specifically stated as a covered reason in the policy. The Financial Default benefit only applies if the policy has been purchased within ten (10) days of Your initial payment for the Covered Trip and you insure the full cost of the Covered Trip.

    In the future, if you are looking for guidance in selecting a travel insurance plan, please consider contacting our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to assist you.
