It was nice to have some assurance that something planned so far ahead and so expensive could be insured against things unforsseen.

It is hard to say whether a plan is good unless you have to file a claim, which I didn't. Therefore, the ratings are only related to the purchasing of the plan and not the quality of the company, the coverage, customer service or other important issues.

We were unable to go in the trip because I was diagnosed with breast cancer; I needed surgery and started treatments shortly thereafter. Nationwide processed our claim very promptly and refunded the cost of our trip. We truly appreciate their service concerning this claim.

The plan gave us peace of mind. Can't really tell how effective it was since we did not have to use it for any claims. Which is just fine with me.

We did not use this since everything went as planned without problems. I would only recommend buying insurance after speaking directly to a person. I tried doing things online and had some issues. I found out I could not put my son and myself on the same plan. The agent was very helpful and carefully explained everything and found me the the best plan for the best price.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    In order to insure travelers under the same Comprehensive policy, the travelers must all live in the same state. In addition, travelers with different travel dates must purchase separate policies.

I would just remind travelers that when they make their reservations they need to do the travel insurance at the same time or preexisting conditions are not covered. This was my fault for not knowing.

Gave 5 stars, but honestly rating is difficult to make because fortunately we did not have to make a claim.
