Having the insurance gave me peace of mind should anything unforseen occur. The online process was easy and certain coverages where included that I hadn't considered.

I selected Nationwide because of the higher medical coverage than other companies. You need the medical and evacuation coverage in case you need it. Remember that Medicare only covers you in the United States and its territories. Most Medicare supplemental policies offer $50,000 lifetime of foreign travel medical coverage. Also be aware of what you employers health care covers out of the country. Someone was airlifted from our cruise in Labadee. We have personally talked to people who thought they were covered only to end up paying tens of thousands of dollars for health care out of the country.

I have used Nationwide plans for cruises and vacations out of the US and have coverage for another upcoming trip. I will not travel without Nationwide coverage in the future.

We believe this plan was appropriate for the price. We were fortunate enough not to have a need to use the coverage but it matched many of the other plans we looked at. This is a great basic plan if you are looking for minimum coverage at an affordable price.
