This is so much cheaper than what the travel gents or cruise lines have. The plans are very easy to compare too.

Thankfully, didn’t not need to use the insurance on my European trip. I am hopeful that if I did need to use it, there wouldn’t be any hassle. Sign up was easy.

can’t say for sure that it covers everything I would want it to cover because I haven’t needed to use it. But having it is comforting...

I was satisfied with the coverage and the cost of the plan, however, the true measure of satisfaction with any plan is satisfaction with a claim and customer service when making a claim. Fortunately, we did not need to make a claim. But overall, Nationwide offered very good coverage at a reasonable cost.

I didn't have to use the insurance, but I felt at ease the entire trip just knowing I was covered, from beginning to end. Thank you!
