I had peace of mind knowing I was covered by Nationwide Mutual in case of emergency. Thankfully I did not need to use the Essential plan!

It's easy to be satisfied when you don't have to file a claim. Nevertheless, I felt the price for the Nationwide Essential plan was reasonable for the coverage provided.

My disappointment stemmed from the fact that there was such a cost difference due to age with no concern for my health. Oh well, this getting older means getting discriminated on a whole new level. Your Nationwide Mutual Essential coverage was fine.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Our trip was interrupted due to the tragic death of our 31 year-old son. The filing of the claim was fraught with delays and repeated requests for information already submitted. The initial reimbursement offered was not consistent with our loss of prepaid expenses and we filed an appeal. The initial appeal was denied, but finally after engaging an advocate from InsureMyTrip and submitting an appeal directly to Nationwide (not their claims processing contractor), we received appropriate reimbursement. To make matters worse, in the face of our tragedy, the representative from the claims processing made repeated insensitive comments in reference to our son’s death. It did not need to be this difficult; we would never buy travel insurance from Nationwide again.
Carolyn L. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

No claims needed to be filed so it's hard to judge what a response to a claim would have been.

Unfortunately, I was forced to file a claim for travel delay caused by my airline, resulting in the loss of the first day of vacation in Barbados. The claim was handled promptly and with no hassle for the full amount of my loss. I will be using this again and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
