Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The plan was easy to purchase online. Due to an accidental overbooking by our tour company, our travel dates needed to be changed. It completely slipped my mind to change our insurance until we were a couple of weeks away from our departure. They were awesome to work with and with proper documentation from the tour company changed our covered travel dates no problem. They were great at communicating with me and I really appreciate how on top of everything they were. We did not end up needing to file any claims, but it's nice to know we were covered.

I have never needed or submitted a claim. However, it was comforting to know that I could if a medical emergency occurred with either myself or my 91 year old father and 85 year old mother.

We were unable to go in the trip because I was diagnosed with breast cancer; I needed surgery and started treatments shortly thereafter. Nationwide processed our claim very promptly and refunded the cost of our trip. We truly appreciate their service concerning this claim.

The plan gave us peace of mind. Can't really tell how effective it was since we did not have to use it for any claims. Which is just fine with me.

Thanks for the notice before our trip. We would have like to have added the rental fee of our vacation home to the insurance, but we had paid that fee a year earlier. This is our first time purchasing trip insurance, so we will know better next time!

I feel the product is worth the money when planning a trip in advance. We used Nationwide in the past for a claim and were 100% happy with their response. Insuremytrip allows you to hand over the details to another party to help you with a claim, or question. We did not personally have contact with them. The price through Insuremytrip was not more expensive than direct purchase with Nationwide, so there is an advantage if you would like that assistance. I would purchase trip insurance again with Nationwide.

Luckily, we never had to use the plan during our vacation. The process to obtain the insurance for our trip was quick and easy. We will definitely use InsureMyTrip for future vacations.
