This plan was exactly what we were looking for to cover our European vacation. We thankfully did not need to file a claim but it gave us peace of mind to be covered.

I unfortunately had to cancel my trip due to injury. The claim process was straightforward; I was able to submit the documentation via email; and it was processed and I was paid within a couple of weeks. I wish I'd been able to go on the trip, but I'm glad I had this insurance when I wasn't.

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.
