I had no claim but I had a peace of mind on our trip. This coverage is better than the cruise line offered and less expensive.

I really liked that I could find a plan at lower cost for our trip. We didn't need the medical coverage and we were able to customize the insurance to meet our needs. Thanks!

Fortunately, we did not need the insurance coverage we purchased, b ut it was good to know it was there if we did.
I like the fact that it was provided by Nationwide, a leader in insurance protection. We felt like the process would be smooth if we needed it.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I took a solo trp to Ghana for my birthday. I was hesitant about buying insurance, because Ive heard so many horror stories, and truthfully after reading some of the reviews, wondered if I would actually need it. I purchased, just to be safe & that was the best decision ever. While in Ghana I became ill (no fault of anything in Ghana) & had to seek medical attention. This caused me to miss my scheduled flight !
I contacted the insurance company and immediately someone was available to answer all of my questions as well as provide me with whatever options & resources that were available to me at that time. It took maybe 72 hours, however I was able to submit my receipts for the additional hotel cost & most importantly I was able to GET HOME!!
Thank you Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, being stuck 1/2 way across the world could be a frightening experience!

I thought the price was a little high, but much cheaper than the Gulf Coast through the realty companies. I will price this again on our next trip. Only found out about your service when we signed up to go to Little Saint Simmons Island Georgia. Your service might consider more advertising. Of course we were only looking for protection if we encountered a major negative.
