While I did not make any claim (thank goodness) on my insurance during the trip, the coverage definitely provided peace of mind. Of all the carriers offered, I think Nationwide was the most cost effective for the same features/coverage I was looking for my trip to Italy.

A small expense for peace of mind that you'll be reimbursed if your health or travel plans change - which they can for any number of reasons. Fortunately have never had to file a claim, but am grateful for the recommendation and encouragement from a travel blogger to "insure my trip".

We were unable to go on our overseas trip due to unexpected illness/surgery of elderly father. After a phone call to Nationwide Mutual, we received and completed a claim form, and received a check for payment in full in a prompt manner. We travel frequently, have always purchased trip insurance for overseas travel, had never had to file a claim, and were apprehensive as to outcome. Would highly recommend to other users.

This plan provided us with some sense of relief in the event we were unable to take our trip. We felt the price was reasonable and appropriate for the coverage given.

After reviewing the plan in more detail as my trip neared, I found that the number and type of exclusions was more than I realized and would look elsewhere next time.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are glad that you reviewed the terms and conditions of the policy. In the future, please consider calling us prior to purchase so that we can discuss the plan coverages and exclusions. We want customers to have a clear understanding of how the policies work and what they provide coverage for. Our representatives are available 7 days a week by calling 800-487-4722.

    The best time to read the terms and conditions of a comprehensive travel insurance policy is within 10 days after purchase. Most policies have a 10 or 14 day review period. If for any reason you wish to cancel the plan, you can do so for a full refund of premium, minus a small service fee. After you surpass the review period, the plan cannot be cancelled.

Excellent coverage for a good price. Having this coverage gave me piece of mind leading up to and throughout our trip. I highly recommend this plan and would consider buying it again for future trips abroad.

We recently traveled overseas shortly after my husband's mother had to have unexpected heart surgery. Having trip insurance freed us from the constant worry that if she were suddenly to have another medical emergency, we'd lose all the money we put down towards the trip. It was well worth the modest cost, and the customer service representatives I worked with when researching and purchasing our policy were knowledgeable and friendly. I would certainly recommend the plan to any of our friends who are similarly dealing with aging parents or other unpredictable circumstances.
