I can only vouch that the insurance premiums for the coverage is a very good value. Having travel insurance provides much peace of mind. However, a truly valid review is one from a customer who has filed a claim with Nationwide, and I have not.

It's hard to rate a service until you need to use it. However knowing you have coverage is a good piece of mind, and one less thing you have to worry about. I recommend everyone carry a policy while on a cruise.

It's impossible to evaluate how the plan did if I didn't use it. However, being an insurance agent & having more than the average guy's familiarity with insurance, I have found Nationwide to be the best & most reasonably priced policy to choose. Should I ever have a claim I assume they'll come thru for me. If not, they'll be dealing with a formidable opponent. Thank you.

I purchased for two main reasons.....in case I needed to cancel the trip as I was travelling during hurricane season and because of the medical benefits in addition to my regular health insurance especially if I needed to be take to a hospital for a medical emergency. Thankfully neither of these occurred but for the price I paid it definitely gave us some peace of mind. I felt the price as very reasonable for the benefits provided.

Did not have to use plan so can't really tell exactly how good the coverage was or how satisfied we were with it.

Thankfully, we didn't need it for anything. But it was comparable to much more expensive plans.

Though I did not have to use the plan, it was piece of mind knowing we had coverage should something happen.

Thankfully, I have not needed to test out how well your coverage and service works. Hope I never have to file a claim but I am glad to have the coverage at a more reasonable price than the travel agent/cruise line offers me. This is my second or third time to use your company. I am grateful for an easy to understand website that give me plenty of choices to fit my needs.
