It was a blessing to not need the use of our plan, but a genuine relief to know it was in place if the need presented itself.

I basically look for the cheapest coverage for what I need and includes pre-existing and medi-evacuation. I have collected several times with different policies and never had a problem with "cheap." In fact, one of them reminded me that they could not finish processing my claim until I submitted what Medicare was paying when it had been sitting on their desk gathering dust. I was aware that it was still pending but Medicare takes their good time processing their claims.. Anyway, impressed they didn't just "sit" on it and hope I would go away (lol).

    Thank you very much for your five star review. However, I would like to point out that your Nationwide Universal Cruise plan does not include the Pre-existing Condition Waiver. Although the waiver is not available in the Universal Cruise plan, it is offered in the Choice or Luxury Cruise plans.

    In the future, you may wish to contact our licensed insurance experts who would be happy to explain any part of the insurance policy. We are available to assist you by phone at 800-487-4722, or by chat, Monday - Friday, 7am-12am EST and Saturday - Sunday, 9am-9pm EST.

Fortunately,I did not have to make a claim. I buy insurance on every cruise (14) and have never made a claim. Therefore, I do not know how good the insurance is unless I have to make a claim.

Now that my husband and I are in our 70s, we know we need travel insurance (luckily, we had bought some two years ago when my husband needed emergency surgery three days before a trip to China).
The Nationwide Universal Cruise plan we bought for our recent cruise is low cost and designed for our specific needs. While we didn't have to file a claim (thank goodness), the peace of mind we bought was well worth it.

A claim was filed on our behalf for a major medical reason involving our daughter. We were told it's not covered and to read the exclusions. It would appear that the exclusions have exclusions. Either way the insurance has no value and the company will find a way to issue a denial. For our money this was a waste .

    When we received your comments on October 31st, we assigned your potential claim to an advocate. Based on the information that you provided, our advocate called the Nationwide claims department who confirmed your telephone conversation and pointed out the applicable exclusion in the policy, so no claim was actually filed.

    Of course, it is never good news to hear that there is no coverage in your policy for a medical issue. If you would like to call Customer Care to discuss this further, we are available to call at (800) 487-4722 Mondays through Friday from 7:00 AM to midnight and weekends 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM. We would be very happy to explain the policy limitations and exclusions further so that you have this information for future travel.

The plan served as a security blanket/peace of mind item. I encountered no events, so the company actually benefited.

Terrific insurance. Got the coverages I required without paying for additional options I didn't need. All aspects of my travel were covered under this insurance so I was able to travel without concern knowing I had taken the necessary steps to protect myself. Gave me total peace of mind, especially since I was traveling outside the U.S.
