For me, the value of this type insurance is the amount of medical evacuation coverage it provides. You can buy policies for about the same amount which do not provide the same medical evacuation coverage.

Thankfully didn't need to use the coverage. Provided coverage for what I was looking for at a reasonable price. Will use them again.

My trip went very smoothly and the weather in my city and destination city was great. No health problems for traveling parties. I’m glad we didn’t need to use this protection.

Vieques was hit hard by Hurricane Maria. There is no electric utility service at my destination, though there is an occasional electric generator. Being a CPAP user, nighttime electricity is essential for me. But, Nationwide Mutual considers the hotel "habitable," so my claim was denied. I was only looking to recoup non-refundable costs ($300 total) related to Vieques since I made alternate arrangements to stay in San Juan. So, I am disappointed.

Fortunately We have only made one claim and Nationwide was Great !
We have been buying plans several times a year for dozens of years from different companies and for various reasons.
Currently The driving force is our own ages and illnesses as well as our parents.....
Will continue to buy and hope to Never file a claim again !
Thankfully this last trip was not a case where we needed to make a claim!
Insurance is something you should definitely have and hope to Never use !
InsureMyTrip gives you a very comprehensive look at what’s available and we keep coming back.

As we age, there is more unpredictability in our lives - especially medically. The insurance gave us peace of mind that our investment in the trip would not be lost due to unexpected events. We will use this again in the future.
