Thankfully I didn’t need to file a claim since my trip went without a hitch. It always gives peace of mind having this coverage, just in case.

We had to cancel because of medical and all forms were emailed promptly. Had a physician complete and sign and our claim was processed and a check was sent. We have purchased Nationwide many times but was the first time we used it. Leaving on a trip in 2 weeks and purchased Nationwide again.

We purchased this plan for peace of mind. Fortunately, we did not have to use it. The premium was very reasonable compared to the potential loss if we had to cancel our cruise.

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

I'm so glad I had this travel insurance in place. A few days before our trip I was diagnosed with a rare cancer. This was a complete shock as I was in great health. I remember telling the agent that I'd have to be dead not to take this trip, it was such an important event for us, a real "bucket list" thing. Fortunately, my doctors all agreed that taking the trip was perfectly fine and we could deal with the needed surgery afterwards. The peace of mind this policy gave me was invaluable, even though I did not end up needing to make a claim.
James F. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

Due to medical issues our trip had to be cancelled. Filing a claim was easy and phone representatives were helpful. They claim that it takes 15 business days which was fairly accurate as I had my check in hand in 20 business days.
Very pleased with their service and plan.
Wendy A. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
