I purchased the plan in case of emergency and was satisfied with my purchase. There was a medical evacuation on our ship which made me even more grateful for having a little insurance.

We had to cancel our trip, due to serious illness. Claim was filed and serviced promptly. The customer service reps were courteous, and very helpful and the claim was paid promptly.

As many, many folks have said on this site, price seemed fair for the coverage. But having never used it, I can't speak to how reliable Nationwide is in paying claims.

Nice to know we had this plan but luckily we did not need to use it. We did do some hiking and biking so wanted to be sure we had extra medical coverage. We didn't have any flight disruptions so we were lucky we didn't need to use that portion of the insurance either.
