Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
When I went online the first time I made a mistake and thought I was buying for $4200 each for coverage. I never say the confirmation email until I get an follow up reminder about the upcoming trip. In looking at my account on line, it showed $4200 total for the cost - but when I got the email reminder it showed $3000 total.

Even though I messed up (and later bought additional coverage), I'm not happy that my original purchase and online account showed $4200 yet the email confirmations showed less.

I feel like I paid more additional cost then what my original purchase should have been for $4200. I called customer service and they said they could review it -- but i have not heard anything. I have the screenshot of the original email login showing the $4200 for the cost.

Not happy this time around.

Our flight home was delayed a day due to freezing fog so our plane was unable to land and was diverted back to PDX. Nationwide Insurance was very easy to deal with to be reimbursed for our night in a motel. The person I spoke with was very helpful and courteous and our claim was paid promptly. Thank you.

We had to file a claim for this same trip last year. My husband had a severe infection and was told not to travel. Nationwide was so easy to work with in covering our prepaid costs, so we didn't hesitate to use them when we re-booked our trip this year. Thankfully, we had no difficulties this time around.

Easy to purchase and understand and quite affordable for such a big trip that gave me peace of mind. I had to alter my dates after purchasing and they fixed it to my new dates at no additional cost.
