Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The Nationwide Essential Plan worked well as to coverage and cost. However, it took about 2 months to receive compensation for losses. I had to re-submit twice some of the documents because they were on the website in my emails and the format was not what they could read. So be careful to save all trip documents and in a PDF format or at least a Word format so they can read them. It took 2-3 weeks the first time before they even contacted me about re-submitting some of the claims, then another 2 weeks for the second round. Finally, I hadn't heard anything for 2 weeks or so again, and a check shows up in the mail. So the plan works but you have to be very patient to get your coverage if you have a loss.
Deborah H. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

So very pleased I purchased this plan as I needed to cancel my trip last minute and the only out of pocket costs I did not get reimbursed for was the cost of the policy itself!

I was shocked at how easy it was to get my claim processed. I thought there would be numerous "hoops" to jump through but settled quickly and hassle-free. I would definitely recommend and have already purchased again on my rescheduled trip.

I would recommend Nationwide for trip insurance for anyone. We did not have a claim on this trip, and we normally don’t. However, there was that one time my father was extremely ill, and his doctor said we shouldn’t leave the country. We did have to file a claim, and Nationwide was very prompt about reimbursement without a hassle. We’re very pleased with them.

We unfortunately were not able to go on our cruise due to a health concern of mine. We were able to sell our cabin to another traveler for $400 less than what we paid. ☹️

With aging parents, purchasing trip insurance gives us a bit of peace of mind. We don't leave home for trips without it.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Well, it seemed like the plan offered the coverage I wanted and needed. But I didn't have a claim. Having filed a claim once before (with a different company), I can say that a claim is where the rubber meets the road and where one finds out more about the company than if you just rent their insurance for a while and don't have a claim. So, no complaints about Nationwide Mutual, and the coverage seemed reasonable and reasonably priced. But no claim experience. (The program forces you to choose a satisfaction rating, which is too bad, because I was satisfied, so I gave them 5 stars, didn't seem right to punish them, but it doesn't mean much when there's no claim. Really, there should be a "not applicable" or "no claim" choice for the satisfaction rating.)
