We travel regularly and had to file a claim with another company in the past. That company dragged their feet unbelievably.
By comparison, Nationwide was fabulous; prompt, efficient, highly recommended!

I really appreciated the ease with which I could compare plans on Insure My Trip and find the one that fit my needs. I will definitely be back to get my insurance for my next trip (international).

The best thing about insurance is never having to use it but knowing it is there.

Though I didn't need to file a claim during my trip, I was very glad I had the coverage. This plan had the right coverage at the right price for me.

The purchase process was easy and went smoothly. We didn't file a claim so I don't know how that process would be. All in all, we were very satisfied with the plan.

Insurance was very reasonably priced and although we (thankfully) did not need it, we had peace of mind when traveling out of the country.

I thought the price was very fair and the company had other policies that increased coverage in areas that other travelers may be more concerned about. I had no major issues for which I needed to file a claim so I can't speak to the company response during the claim process. I thought the policy was fairly priced with excellent coverage.

It was a relief to know that I had the coverage I might have needed -- and a bigger relief not to need it! Peace of mind at a reasonable price.
