Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I had a change of intinerary claim with Nationwide. Per the website, it should be processed within 15 business days. I understand that there are lots of claims with whats going on in the world but I called 3 times regarding the processing of my claim since it was over the time limit. On the 3rd time, I was told that even though I downloaded all the appropriate forms and information, that noone uploaded them into the claims system. Why didn't the first 2 reps see that? Due to that error, it took about 45 days for my claim to be approved. Its a good thing I called again and spoke to a rep who took the time to look at my claim or who knows when or if I'd ever be paid. I like Nationwide. Use them on most cruises. I would use them again but I just suggest if you have a claim to stay on top of them to make sure its processed timely.

It served its purpose. Thankfully we didn't have any issues that required us to file a claim.

Great insurance coverage at a great price. I have another Nationwide policy for a cruise we have booked for next year (actually rebooked multiple times due to COVID), they transferred the policy each time it was rescheduled with such ease. I will always use Nationwide through Insuremytrip.com.

The Essentials plan that we purchased covered all the things we thought were essential, and at a reasonable price. I have bought this insurance before, and will buy it again. Nationwide has good reviews, and is the insurance company that underwrites insurance on the cruise line that I use as well. I can only get the plan I like by going through InsureMyTrip, and I have had good experiences dealing with them. I was able to change my insurance several times, as I had to change my trip plans due to COVID. Overall, I recommend both InsureMyTrip and Nationwide.

I didn't need it, but felt safer having extra coverage, since I was driving into Canada.
