The Essential plan from Nationwide Mutual Insurance is for travelers planning trips on a budget who don't want to sacrifice coverage. Coverages include Trip Cancellation and Interruption, Medical, Emergency Medical Evacuation, and Assistance Services.
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.
Pamela P. would not
recommend this plan to a friend or relative.
