Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
It was nice knowing it was there if I needed it. I bought it primarily for the medical coverage, but almost missed a connecting flight so I was happy with the comprehensive policy.

We did not need to use the insurance, so it's a little hard to comment or rate the service. I'm happy we did not have an event that required us to file a claim.

This plan provided us with some sense of relief in the event we were unable to take our trip. We felt the price was reasonable and appropriate for the coverage given.

We were obviously very naive. We thought if we got sick, the insurance company would help us find medical care. That was not the case. We were totally responsible for finding the medical care ourselves. The insurance company did help with transfers from one plane to another for our trip home. We are filing a claim for medical bills. Not sure how that will be. Some representatives of the insurance company were helpful and some bordered on being nasty. I would never purchase travel insurance with this company again.

First time purchasing travel insurance and it was easy to do. It is comforting to know you have a back up if there is an issue on a trip.
