We had to cancel our trip, due to serious illness. Claim was filed and serviced promptly. The customer service reps were courteous, and very helpful and the claim was paid promptly.

Straight-forward and easy to obtain the insurance. Clearly understood coverage. Pleased at receiving an email reminder about my insurance prior to taking my trip.

As many, many folks have said on this site, price seemed fair for the coverage. But having never used it, I can't speak to how reliable Nationwide is in paying claims.

Nice to know we had this plan but luckily we did not need to use it. We did do some hiking and biking so wanted to be sure we had extra medical coverage. We didn't have any flight disruptions so we were lucky we didn't need to use that portion of the insurance either.

Bought this policy for a family cruise. 4 days before the cruise a family member who was also traveling with us became unexpectedly ill requiring hospitalization and subsequent last minute cancellation of our trip. Once we filed the paperwork, it took about 3 weeks to receive our reimbursements from Nationwide. No problems. Paperwork was reasonable. Received coverage as promised.
