I've never had to file a claim yet but it always gives me peace of mind to know it's there if I need it. Plus it is more reasonably priced than what is offered by the travel agency or cruise line.
I was sick several years ago with the flu and went on my cruise anyway because I did not have Insurance.

This is the second policy I purchased in the past year. Thankfully we have not needed to file a claim. So I don’t really know how good the policy is or how quickly claims are processed. However the peace of mind was wonderful. The policy I chose would cover all my concerns if need be.

Thankfully we did not need to use our trip insurance. We were happy with the plan that we had in place in case we needed it.

While it was not necessary for us to utilize the insurance I did feel secure in having it in place. I compared the cost with friends and it was less expensive for the same or higher coverage.

The plan met my needs. I was pleased to have no problem changing destinations when my cruise was rerouted to the Bahamas, instead of Cuba.

My mother and I booked a trip to Europe but shortly before we left my mother had an accident so we were unable to go. She used a different Travel Insurance company so I submitted identical paperwork- doctors letters, confirmations, cancellations, credit card details, etc - to both companies. My mother’s company sent her a refund check within a month with no further need of proof of documentation. Nationwide sent me more emails asking for identical paperwork, letters of cancellation and other information which I had already sent. Weeks later I received a check but I did not get the full refund I was entitled to as they deducted amounts I had paid. As it had taken so much time I accepted the final amount offered but will definitely be using the other Travel Insurance company in the future.
