Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
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.

Luckily I did not have to file a claim, so I do not have much information for a review.

We were, unfortunately, unable to go on our cruise due to a family emergency. We filed the claim with Nationwide and received a check in less than two weeks! Prompt, courteous service!!
