Fortunately, My trip went smoothly and I did not have to file any claims. But the peace of mind that I could was worth the price.

I had to make a trip delay claim due to Hurricane Irma stranding me in DC for a few days. All of my meal and lodging expenses were covered (I stayed within the limit fairly easily) and Nationwide was actually really fast in providing payment. It was the airline that took the longest just to get me a travel delay letter (no surprise there). I'd recommend this plan, it paid for itself.

Great value for a great plan! Easy process to compare and purchase a plan. We were pleased that we did not have to make a claim. The best reviews of these plans is listening to people who actually had to make a claim.

Gave great peace of mind. If you've ever driven on the roads on the coast of Amalfi, Italy you'll know what I mean.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
In July 2016, we purchased a policy for our bicycling trip to Sicily, Italy. The price for our 12 day tour was $3800 per person. The cost for the insurance was $400.56 (very reasonable). In January 2017 we purchased airfare and added a second tour in Italy. The cost was now $7214 per person and 24 days in length. The cost of the insurance policy now was $1790.10. To add 12 days to the trip (double the original trip) and $3414 more per person (less than the cost per person of the first tour), the cost of the insurance went up more than 4 times the original amount . We were shocked as we thought the insurance amount may double but not go up more than 4 times the original amount. Unbelievable!!

The best thing about insurance is never having to use it but knowing it is there.
