    Squaremouth was fine to purchase. Getting a refund from Nationwide is taking longer. They asked for a lot of documentation. We started our claim the weekend of when our trip would have started, Feb 17. Last week I sent another round of paperwork to them as requested. Haven't heard further. Sincerely hope the next email is concerning when to expect our refund check. I didn't think it would take so long to collect. Cancelling the trip was disappointing enough.

    Overall I had a very experience with my claim and working with Nationwide to get it resolved. It took a little longer than I expected, but part of this was on me - I had to wait for my primary medical provider to settle the medical portion of my claim with them before NationWide could finish things up on their end. Once that missing piece was completed, they notified me on March 25 that my claim had been approved, and I received reimbursement checks a week later on April 1.

    Overall I would have no reservations about recommending NationWide for travel insurance. One thing I would encourage people to do is to read their policy coverages carefully. On this claim I learned that post-trip medical care was not covered by this travel policy, whereas other policies I’ve taken out did cover it. My fault for not reading the coverages carefully in advance - it was clearly stated in the policy documents from NationWide.
