If there were unforeseen issues, we knew that Nationwide would take care of them. The cost of the insurance was very reasonable.

We filed a trip cancellation claim due to the death of my grandfather. We received full payment in about 2 weeks with no issues.

We used InsureMyTrip because we had a split stay, 6 nights Disney World, 5 nights Carnival cruise, and 3 more nights Disney World. To get insurance separately through Disney and Carnival would have cost more than double the cost of the plan we bought from Nationwide on InsureMyTrip.com. It was very easy to purchase and we got the coverage we wanted.

I thought the plan was value priced for what it offered. InsureMyTrip responded to all my questions & concerns in a prompt manner. I would use the service/company again.

Took a lot of worry off our mind. We had some serious family issues taking place. One was on the day before we were supposed to leave. Our daughter-in-law got a call that her mother was hospitalized with chest pains. So our daughter-in-law, and possibly her husband and two boys, didn't know if they were going to make this trip. Fortunately, everything worked out, but you took away a lot of the worry with us knowing you had our financial backs. Thanks!

As far as I know, the policy coverage is fine. I have never purchased trip insurance before, but I probably do so in the future, due to the type of travel I now do. Hopefully, all will go well in the future.
