Nationwide aka VPI raised rates by a significant amount this year. I dropped coverage for one (I have 3 canines) after the renewal arrived with a 33% increase over the previous year. I would have renewed for a smaller increase, so they lost out. I received a renewal for another this past week and the rate increase is 26% over last year. The operator was pleasant enough, but all in all, they didn't seem to mind losing the premium and made no attempt to change my mind. I wouldn't recommend them due to cost.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
