I worried a good bit that something would happen to me that would be considered a pre-existing condition and that my claim would be denied. If I had to do it over again, I would get the plan which covered ALL reasons for a claim.

Since the 90's, we began purchasing travel insurance due to a parent that was ill and have continued to purchase it for all our travels. Thankfully, we never had to use it before and have sometimes wondered if it was truly needed. Well, when a hurricane forced changes to the itinerary - twice - and finally, to the return date on our cruise, we had no choice but to cut our vacation short and make arrangements to return home early. This resulted in expenses for flights and missed cruise days. We contacted the company and the representative was very helpful and quickly provided us with the proper forms, etc. We filed a claim and submitted our information and receipts to Nationwide. Nationwide processed the claim and we received payment very quickly. In fact, my husband now says we will never again question whether we should purchase travel insurance, (LOL) and he wants to use Nationwide whenever possible.

Thank you, Nationwide, for your assistance and prompt response!

I was very comforted in the fact that if something should have happened while away on my trip that I was covered with insurance. It was a long way from home and who knows if I would have lost my luggage or even my life. I could rest at ease knowing I was covered by a very well known insurance company.
