Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
When I made my reservations, I was not thinking about what could happen between the time I purchased my trip and the departure date. All I knew was that I was going and that was it. 1 month before the scheduled vacation my mother had a stroke and was going through a slow recovery. I decided to check into insurance and found this insurance. The price only $29 more than I would have paid had I bought it right away. Buying insurance is important because anything can happen and the cost was worth it so I could sleep at night.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are pleased to learn that the policy provided you with peace of mind. For comprehensive plans offering trip cancellation, coverage will be provided for unforeseen medical emergencies that occur after the effective date of coverage.

I have bought plans to cover three or four reasons that a trip would need to be canceled, but paid four times the price of this plan! And I purchased this plan which covered all of my concerns! I cannot begin to tell you the peace of mind I got from this,

I selected Nationwide because the wording of their pregnancy/childbirth exclusion was slightly less restrictive than other carriers, and we were going on a "babymoon". Thankfully, we did not have to use it for that, or for the big snowstorm that almost delayed our return. The plan was affordable, and nice to know we were covered.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential plan excludes: "pregnancy and childbirth (except for complications of pregnancy), except if hospitalized."

I have read many reviews of different insurance companies before choosing Nationwide. It turned out to be a good decision. Even though it took several emails back and forth, the situation was explained and resolved in a very professional and courteous way. The representative who handled our claim was extremely polite, professional, and caring. She tried everything in her power to expedite the process. Our experience with Nationwide was nothing but positive.

Great pricing! We slept like babies with the peace of mind from Nationwide. We both have pre-existing conditions, and are in our 60's. Our next cruise will be insured with Nationwide through InsureMyTrip.

Almost had to use it as my wife was put into the hospital. It was a relief to know I had this insurance. I will rate my other Nationwide policy after I use it, as she can not got on our next trip.
