I called in to Insure My Trip a few times. While I never got the same person twice, they obviously kept good records and I was always able to get my question answered quickly without starting over. Very friendly, patient and efficient reps. Felt they were truly trying to meet my need vs. "sell me something". Will insure the next trip sooner to offset preexisting condition issues. Daughter had issues with her back AFTER we booked the trip but BEFORE we took out insurance so she couldn't be covered. Would use again. Simple and straightforward.

I purchased coverage for my family as we traveled to Vietnam. The cost was reasonable (far less than that offered by my travel agency), and the coverage was comprehensive. Fortunately I did not have to use the insurance, but appreciated the peace of mind that this insurance provided! Will definitely use again for all extended travel!

It was nice to have some assurance that something planned so far ahead and so expensive could be insured against things unforsseen.

It is hard to say whether a plan is good unless you have to file a claim, which I didn't. Therefore, the ratings are only related to the purchasing of the plan and not the quality of the company, the coverage, customer service or other important issues.

We were unable to go in the trip because I was diagnosed with breast cancer; I needed surgery and started treatments shortly thereafter. Nationwide processed our claim very promptly and refunded the cost of our trip. We truly appreciate their service concerning this claim.
