Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I waited until I submitted my claim on trip interruption part to see how it went. They came through and I received the amount claimed, after filing the proper information. I will also say I needed to contact them at least twice to make sure I understood what was needed for my claim and the agents I emailed and/called on phone were very helpful in aiding me to file properly. I appreciate all that was done, as I have never had to submit any claims on my many past trip coverages. Naturally I would recommend them after this proven positive experience.
Oh by the way, I needed to file this claim after I returned home around March 9-12 2020. Note that date - around the time the worldwide coved 19 just started to become an issue!!
So I was a bit stressed as I had returned home immediately after all this corona panademic began unfolding in the US.
NOTE: ALWAYS KEEP all records and receipts from the moment you plan an insure your trip until you arrive home, as you will need such records to submit along with your claim. Without proof you cannot expect reimbursement (obviously)

Insurance is something you buy but hope to never use. So far that has been the case for my international travel.

We filed a claim when my spouse fell down some stairs and broke his leg. We were very happy with the claims process and outcome. We bought the Nationwide Essential Comprehensive coverage.

Essential coverage for a cruise is a must. Would not go a on any trip out of the country without coverage. Found this site provides good coverage at a most reasonable rate. I would recommend and have recommended to friends.

It was very helpful as they send you a reminder of what information to take with you on the trip. They provide 24 hour phone numbers to call and are very clear on what the coverages include.

We did not have a claim but by having the policy it gave us peace of mind to have insurance for our trip. We hear fellow travelers tell horror stories about not having any insurance when traveling outside of U. S. and we never want to be in that situation.

We didn't make a claim, so I can't really say how well the insurance worked. But the coverage was good for the cost.
