The "free" holiday insurance is a joke and doesn't work for us as:
a) Since redundancy, there is not enough external feed of money into the Flex account (internal transfers from savings don't count)
b) As a holiday insurance it's cr*p

Sorry to hear about your situation, though if you don't meet the T+Cs, it seems unfair to blame the account.Horses for courses, I think.
I had a look at the travel insurance.
- coverage for older account holders, not terminated at age 65 like so many other 'free' or paid-for policies;
- wider range of coverage for pre-existing conditions, compared with other policies.
- coverage limited to Europe, though worldwide or other cover is available for a reasonable supplement.
If I hadn't already had great cover included with my AmEx platinum chargecard, it would have been a no-brainer (and will be should I cut up my AmEx card).

I have a (largely dormant) Nationwide gold card and flex account but have to confess that I don't really understand the attraction of a credit card offering an extended warranty cover given the rights we all have under the Sales of Goods Acts anyway.. which can cover one for up to 6 years..
Having said that I guess I am in the fortunate position of having other 0% f/x cards and/or other cards with an extended warranty option should I wish to use either.

Most of the people who used Nationwide for the free overseas spending weren't "loyal" customers though. They just kept a few pounds in their account to keep it open, and topped it up before going on holiday. I can completely understand why Nationwide got rid of the scheme.
