Your website has been updated and its easier than ever to compare plans. Nationwide offered the best priced broadest coverage for our trip to Aruba plus they have a great reputation. Even though we didn't need to use it, it was perfect for us.

I always turn to InsureMyTrip.com when seeking travel insurance. They have multiple plans to meet every need and my plan with Nationwide was one such plan. Very happy to find a great insurance plan at a great price.

Peace of mind knowing that we were covered while on vacation. We did not have to use our plan, but it was nice knowing that if we had to it would be there.

I was very happy with the insurance I chose. I was even happier that I did not have to use it!! That's what trip insurance is all about.

This is the second trip insurance plan I purchased from Nationwide via InsureMyTrip. The first was for a trip we had planned ourselves for what was supposed to be our honeymoon to the Caribbean before Hurricanes Irma and Maria destroyed our lodging and we had to cancel it. We booked a new honeymoon to Austria through AAA/Collette Tours, and since Nationwide was so easy to work with and I was so satisfied with them after our first trip I purchased the same policy for our new honeymoon. Even better, the cost of the Nationwide policy was less than half the price of the insurance offered through AAA/Collette and the coverage was far better. I strongly recommend Nationwide and InsureMyTrip when purchasing trip insurance. We had total peace of mind on our honeymoon and I will surely use them again the next time we travel.

Fortunately I didn’t have to file a claim. But feel confident if I did it would have been seamless. I will use them for future trips!

Yes everything went great on our trip to Virgin Gorda. The claim was easy to file and even the confusion didn't confuse you. The confusion was in the house. We weren't going to get the money back, then we were going to get the money back. Then we weren't going to get the money back but eventually we did get the money back for the house. And so there was no claim filed for the money on the house, where initially there was. And the plane reservation refund was excellent, cuz it took into account the weird way Delta handles cancellations like that. Which is that they don't and they don't give you your money back. Unless you plan on booking with them again within 12 months of the initial reservation. Which is somewhat difficult to do, since we generally fly domestically and you won't take Delta if you are a golfer and fly domestically.
