Thanks! Having Nationwide Insurance took stress off me,knowing that if I ever would have had a medical emergency I had the insurance coverage needed. Thanks to God I did not need to use it, I had a wonderful trip.

I purchased the coverage, but truly I cannot rate it since luckily enough I did not have to use it. What was offered seemed reasonable, but what truly makes the plan worth it is the easy reimbursement of money spend, when needed, and not finding ways by insurance company to avoid reimbursements and stating that certain things were not covered based on their interpretations.

We did not have to file any claims. I chose this plan as it provided the coverage for a great price! Much cheaper than what the cruiseline offered and had all the coverage I needed.

One of our flights was canceled. The policy from Nationwide would not pay for the lost day of our vacation. The airline canceled the flight and we lost a nights lodging expenses. A canceled flight was not a covered interruption. I am very disappointed.

Purchasing the insurance was easy. Since we had no reason to file a claim it's impossible to know whether to be satisfied with the company or not.

I took out insurance but did not use it. I believe Nationwide is a reputable company so we felt confident whilst on our trip.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company Essential Plan provided all the coverage I look for when purchasing a Travel Insurance Plan. The Plan not only covers the Trip Cancellation, Interruption, and Lost Luggage, but also the more important coverage of High Limits for Medical and Medical Evacuation at a very good price.
