Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I have updated my review based on being notified that my claim has been processed and a check is "in the mail". I still believe to much documentation is required to process a claim but overall I am satisfied with the coverage and would purchase again. Representatives were very helpful in assisting with the processing of my claim.

I did not use the insurance, so I can not really review it, other than to say it provided the best coverage for the price, given what I was looking for.

It's tough to rate something like this since I didn't have a claim to file. Price was good, however, and coverage was adequate.

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.

We had to cancel our trip, due to serious illness. Claim was filed and serviced promptly. The customer service reps were courteous, and very helpful and the claim was paid promptly.

As many, many folks have said on this site, price seemed fair for the coverage. But having never used it, I can't speak to how reliable Nationwide is in paying claims.

We did not need to use the plan, but it did give us great peace of mind to know we had it.

Unfortunately my cruise was cancelled, but fortunately the cruise line reimbursed us for the cost of the cruise. I didn't insure our airfare because it was partially paid w/ skymiles and that was my own fault for doing it that way. Since the cruise line only reimbursed our cruise cost we ended up paying a lot out of pocket because of our flights. I have always been very happy with the fight insurance we buy and I'm sure it would have worked great under normal circumstances.

Don't know what to say. I didn't have to use it, but we have used it for past trips. It seems to be a good plan.
