It’s hard to review a plan when I didn’t actually need to leverage the coverage.

    Nationwide, as do most insurance providers, calculates their Compre-hensive Plan premiums based on the traveler's age, cost of trip and length of trip.

This is the third time I have used this insurance. Luckily I only needed the coverage once. When I did file a claim the response was excellent. Great insurance at a great price. Highly recommend.

Even though I didn't have to make a claim, after reading the many reviews before I purchased the plan, I knew this was the plan and company I wanted to use. The price was very reasonable and the coverage was exactly what I would have needed incase there was a problem.

Being that I did not file a claim I really can't provide a valid assessment. However, it provide peace of mind.

Happy to report that I did not need to use this coverage. I purchased it for a cruise because after being pressured to buy insurance through the cruise company within 2 weeks of my purchase (which was almost one year in advance), I searched online and found I could buy similar coverage for less than 1/2 the price. After purchasing this coverage, I realized I could have waited until right before the trip to buy it. I called insuremytrip to ask if I could cancel and they were very helpful in refunding my money immediately. I was confident about buying it again when the time came. I was very grateful to have found this service. It gave me comfort while traveling to have coverage through a nationally recognized company.

Our family was very pleased that we purchased travel insurance. We didn't have to use the insurance but just the peace of mind of having it was worthwhile.
