Nationwide Mutual Insurance Luxury Cruise
We purchased the Luxury Policy through Nationwide for our retirement trip of a lifetime. We were to be gone 2.5 months. It included a 21 day cruise and then island hopping around French Polynesia, then flying to Australia to go to the Great Barrier Reef. Our cruise began in Sydney Australia on 2/28/20, we were supposed to disembark in Tahiti on 3/20/20. Due to COVID-19, our cruise was interrupted and we were sent home from Hawaii. We had 4 flights included in the covered cost of our policy: the flight to Sydney, island hopping flights around French Polynesia, the flight from Tahiti to Cairns, the flight from Cairns back to our home in California. We were fortunate and obtained refunds on two of the flights we did not utilize (thank you Air Tahiti and Expedia). The third, the flight from Tahiti to Cairns was not refunded and was denied by coverage by Nationwide. They said they do not cover pre-purchased flights that you are not able to utilize after a trip interruption. They would only be covered in the event of a trip cancellation. The total we are out is $1,246. I have to say, I'm not impressed! When you insure the value of a trip, including all of the costs that are non-cancellable and non-refundable, the coverage should reimburse for the insured costs that a traveler is out of pocket. They refuse to do so. I also acknowledge that some policies do not cover the expenses due to a pandemic, that is not the case with our policy because we purchased it in October, 2019, long before we had heard of COVID-19. Buyer, be careful to determine what is covered and what is not. I have purchased 5 or 6 Nationwide Luxury Cruise policies in the past and not had any issues. This is a first, but after paying $814 in premium to cover a 2.5 month trip and coming home after 1 month, and finding out that they will not reimburse me for this flight, I'm very disappointed in the Nationwide Luxury Cruise policy coverage.
Robin B. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
