Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
It is difficult to give an opinion of a product when it was never used, but after going over the details while doing my price and coverage comparisons, this one seemed to have what I needed. Glad it was NEVER needed, but good having the peace of mind!

I purchased the plan in case of emergency and was satisfied with my purchase. There was a medical evacuation on our ship which made me even more grateful for having a little insurance.

Nice to know we had this plan but luckily we did not need to use it. We did do some hiking and biking so wanted to be sure we had extra medical coverage. We didn't have any flight disruptions so we were lucky we didn't need to use that portion of the insurance either.

I was satisfied with this plan, but it's hard to accurately rate until you need to file a claim.

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.
