    Too many steps to file a claim. Automated responses asking for items that had nothing to do with my claim. No ability to talk directly to a person.

    Kenneth from NJ Verified Squaremouth Customer

    My wife required medical attention while we were still in port. The medical attention she received aboard ship was great. She was in the medical center for about 5 hours. By this time we were out of port and taken to our cabin.
    The following day we were given all the paperwork from the medical center.
    We were in contact by e mail from the ship with Nationwide, initially there was some confusion if the policy was for primary coverage or secondary.
    As soon as we got home we called Squaremouth and confirmed it was a policy for Primary coverage. We then contacted Nationwide Mutual and they agreed it was primary coverage and told us to send in all the paperwork.
    That was the only two phone calls made and three and half weeks later we received a check from Nationwide Mutual for the full amount of the costs.
    Very pleased with the service from Squaremouth and Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company
    Thank You

    While traveling in Spain and Portugal we reached out via the toll free international number for assistance with an illness. The response was rapid and helpful. We are planning to file a claim for costs incurred while away. I will purchase this insurance again.
    Thank you
