As a result of the Bomb Cyclone Blizzard in Denver, we were able to reschedule our flights and hotel reservations through Southwest Vacations. Nationwide was a pleasure to work with in being able to reschedule our insurance dates so that we could be covered for our rescheduled vacation.

I should have chosen the “cancel for any reason” plan.

It's hard to know if the plan was the right choose for us, as we didn't need to use it. Which is great I hope if we would have needed to use it that it would have covered us. That's why a person purchases the policy to be protected & for piece of mind. Can only hope that if you need it someday that they helped you purchase the correct protection that you'll need.

The site was easy to navigate and find the option for coverage I found to be adequate.
I did not need to file a claim, so I cannot review that process.

I had to be hospitalized overnight in Playa del Carmen while on vacation. It too over 3 months for my primary insurance to process and pay my claim before I could submit to Nationwide. Once submitted to them, they paid all the remaining amount in less than three weeks. They were much easier to deal with than my own health insurance provider. They covered their obligation quickly with no hassles. I usually take a couple of trips a year and always buy travel insurance. Nationwide will continue to earn my business. They provide the coverage I need at a price that's very affordable.

This is the second time using Nationwide to insure our trips and thank goodness we did not have any claims. We previously filed a large claim on another trip and it was promptly handled.
