I think the coverage was very good for the price. The only complaint I have is that, once you send in the payment, you would expect them to send you a policy of some type, written or electronic. Never heard anything. Finally printed out the sheets with the coverage info. Glad I didn't need to file a claim. Doubt that I had anything all that legal with me.

    We certainly appreciate your review which allows us the opportunity to provide information to your fellow travelers as well as you.

    InsureMyTrip emails a Confirmation of Coverage which is your Nationwide policy. Based on your review, it appears that you printed the confirmation email and took it with you on the trip. The confirmation email is exactly what you needed to bring since it has the policy number and provider contact information along with an attached copy of the Nationwide Certificate of Insurance.

I felt relieved to know that I had the plan, in case I did need it! I thought the price was well worth the peace of mind. I would rather have the coverage and not need it, than not have it and need it! At least this did not cost a fortune like some of the others that I reviewed.

The Nationwide Mutual insurance plan gave us peace of mind if something went wrong. We didn't need to use the insurance so we weren't sure if this was the right kind of insurance. There was no need to find out if it was a good plan.

Submitted a Travel Delay claim due to return flight having been cancelled. Carrier advised us it would be 48 hours before they could provide an alternate flight, so I purchased a 1-way ticket with another carrier for a flight that left sooner. I incurred expenses of $263 (replacement airfare plus meals.) I submitted a claim and received a check for $150 (the maximum daily amount provided by my policy) in exactly 10 days. The company did what they were supposed to do, in a timely manner and without any hassles.
