Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The whole point of insurance is peace of mind. I only purchase insurance for big trips (expense, time away) and the insurance did exactly what I needed: It provided peace of mind. My wife and I are home, trip was great and the insurance was never used. Peace of mind provided and all good.

Top notch service from the point of first inquiry when disrupted due to Hurricane Dorian until the final claim was process and paid. This service was a great investment to reduce worries due to delay or disruption!

We were fortunate that our trip went as smoothly as could possibly be expected, and we did not have to utilize the plan we purchased. That said, it gave us peace of mind we wouldn't have had otherwise, which was worth a lot, given our financial (and emotional) investment in the trip we planned.

Fortunately my trip went smoothly and there was no need to file a claim. My review was based solely on the coverage offered for the premium paid. The premium was very reasonable compared to what was being offered by other companies.

Comparing plans and making the purchase online was easy. The plan added good coverage and made us feel relaxed about a potential strike with our airline.Thankfully we did not have to file any claims.

I can only vouch that the insurance premiums for the coverage is a very good value. Having travel insurance provides much peace of mind. However, a truly valid review is one from a customer who has filed a claim with Nationwide, and I have not.

It's impossible to evaluate how the plan did if I didn't use it. However, being an insurance agent & having more than the average guy's familiarity with insurance, I have found Nationwide to be the best & most reasonably priced policy to choose. Should I ever have a claim I assume they'll come thru for me. If not, they'll be dealing with a formidable opponent. Thank you.

thankful to have coverage (just in case) and even more thankful not needing to use it. Peace of mind is what I would call having Travel Insurance. :-)
Thanks,
