Very satisfied. Three days before our cruise we had a medical emergency and need to cancel our 12 day cruise. We called claims and were given a claim number, with directions on what was needed to file the claim. Sent all needed paperwork in an email with a PDF file to claims. We received 2 checks in the mail approximately 3 weeks later, minus port taxes that Royal Caribbean refunded. Thank you Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. We purchased the Essential Plan coverage.

Although I didn't need to use the policy, it was good knowing it was there in case on an emergency. We were able to get everything we needed on the policy and at a reasonable price. Thank you.

I have insured through Nationwide with almost all of my trips using InsureMyTrip. They are very reasonable for the coverage they offer. This was the first time I have had to file a claim and was pleasantly surprised. The customer service representatives I spoke with were very kind and helpful. They immediately sent me the forms to file and told me all of the paperwork I would need. The claim was handled very quickly with no problems at all. This is the kind of company that I like to deal with and would highly recommend them to anyone. They will continue to be the company I use in the future. Thank you Nationwide for a great experience.

I am extremely satisfied with the plan I purchased through Nationwide that covered a cruise. I had to cancel our cruise due to illness. I submitted the claims forms and received a prompt reimbursement. I would definitely use this company in the future.

Peace of mind, but worth it. At my age health can cause trouble and makes this worth the cost.

I didn't wind up using the plan but at the last minute my husbands back went out and I came very close to staying home. There was a lot of comfort in the knowledge if I had to cancel my trip I would not have lost all the money I paid for it! Well worth the cost of insurance.

We didn't get sick or have a family member in the hospital, so we did not need to use the insurance; but I'm glad we had it just in case.
