Insurance plan was reasonably priced and covered items we needed. We didn’t need to file any claims. So I can’t speak to how this would be handled.

Flight cancelled due to snow and wind storm. Airport closed the whole day and limited the next day. Not covered by ins. Paid $272 and coverage when you really need it was not there.

    Thank you for submitting your review. We appreciate all comments.

    However, you did note in your review that you did not file a claim with Nationwide. Although we cannot predetermine a claim, you may have had coverage under the policy if you had contacted the Nationwide Claims Department at (888) 490-7606. If you should change your mind, please give them a call.

As I didn't need to use this coverage, I don't really have adequate answers to the above questions.

Just glad we had no reason to activate the insurance plan, but it was a safety net in knowing we had protection if needed.

Difficult to review a plan you purchased but (fortunately) didn’t need. The best way to judge an insurance plan and value it’s worth is when you need to file a claim.
