Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I found claim approval to be excessive. My wife was unable to travel due to an injury, and we provided the doctor letter, indicating she could not travel. I went through the effort to get a refund from the airline on my own (thus saving Nationwide money). My claim to Nationwide was for only small advance trip reservations (i.e. museum tickets for my wife) that could not be refunded. My claim material was very well organized & documented, including the doctor letter proving she could not travel. Despite this, Nationwide required me to provide evidence that she was not on the final flight confirmation, plus evidence that I received the flight refund (which I didn't even include on the Nationwide claim!). This required my time to locate numerous documents and resubmit the claim... which I felt was totally unnecessary.

Thankfully, I did not have to file a claim. The coverage was reasonably priced and underwritten by a reputable well rated company.

Once purchased, travel insurance is something I tend to forget about until needed. So far, another trip without cause to use insurance. I'm okay with that. Good travels everyone!

Difficult to rate the insurance since I didn't have to make a claim (thank goodness). All trip insurance is expensive until there is a need to use it and then it is a godsend (especially evacuation!)

I would not have traveled to Europe without insurance. It was a fair price for the coverage and thankfully we did not need to use it.

It was comforting to know we had coverage if an unfortunate event occurred. Happy I did not need it, but great to have the insurance.

Didn't have to use it so I can't really say for sure if it is a good product or not. I did have the peace of mind that I had insurance, so that is a good thing. I picked Nationwide because I already am a customer and I am familiar with some of your products.

Thanks!
