We have used this company for all of our cruises. Only had to file a claim one trip and the service was wonderful. The peace of mind is worth every penny.

On the trip my wife legs swelled and got rash. She did self diagnosis her condition on google. We did not consult a Doctor. She need cream and rented a scooter. After talking to agent we should of called your emergency number to get medical advice. I was not aware we could call in for non emergency. The policy may have allowed telemedicine with doctor. I wish we were aware of this option.

I thought the price was a little high, but much cheaper than the Gulf Coast through the realty companies. I will price this again on our next trip. Only found out about your service when we signed up to go to Little Saint Simmons Island Georgia. Your service might consider more advertising. Of course we were only looking for protection if we encountered a major negative.

Great plan at a great cost. It was cheaper and provided better coverage than the cruise ships recommendation.

Didn't have to use it but the cost was a great value for the coverage offered.

The plan was easy to purchase online. Due to an accidental overbooking by our tour company, our travel dates needed to be changed. It completely slipped my mind to change our insurance until we were a couple of weeks away from our departure. They were awesome to work with and with proper documentation from the tour company changed our covered travel dates no problem. They were great at communicating with me and I really appreciate how on top of everything they were. We did not end up needing to file any claims, but it's nice to know we were covered.

I have never needed or submitted a claim. However, it was comforting to know that I could if a medical emergency occurred with either myself or my 91 year old father and 85 year old mother.

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.
