Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Fortunately, we did not have to use this insurance. However, we had many things that came up (illness, weather, delayed flights) that were not as stressful knowing we had coverage if we needed it. I would buy this insurance again.

As the long weekend progressed, weather and traffic got bad during our last day, we felt secure in knowing that our trip delay was covered should we not be able to get out that last day. We felt a ping at one moment about our luggage being held up in the Customs mess at Atlanta Airport, and knew we were covered. It made the holiday mess and snow on the other end of the line just another amusement during the most traveled day of the holiday crunch.

I guess I am glad I didn't have to file a claim because I had a wonderful trip. The cost was very reasonable for the peace of mind every traveler needs!

Very pleased with how attentive Nationwide was to our claim when our trip to New England had to be shortened due to a family emergency. They did not question nor ask for any additional documentation and sent us reimbursement checks relatively quickly.

I purchased the insurance plan to cover the total cost of my trip in case I couldn't attend. That was my main intention for this policy.
I experienced a terrible toothache while aboard on my cruise. The pain was so terrible I went to a dentist in Cozumel Mexico. I was charged $500.00 dollars that resulted in no relief from my pain. I would only wish future policies might include Dental Insurance if seen by a doctor. I'd recommend all to purchase dental if presented in a manor if one is seen buy a physician.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. The Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential plan covers up to 500 USD for emergency dental treatment for an accidental injury to sound natural teeth. Both the accidental injury and the emergency dental treatment must occur during the Trip. This is industry standard for Comprehensive travel insurance policies.

    InsureMyTrip does offer Single-Trip Medical plans that cover 100 USD for the relief of pain to sound natural teeth.

    Please call us at 800-487-4722 if you have any questions about medical or dental coverage on any of our products. We look forward to assisting you in the future.

It was easy to purchase a basic travel insurance plan online at a reasonable cost. I had the policy downloaded within a few minutes. Smooth transaction.

I have used this plan in the past and actually had to make a claim. I found it very comprehensive in nature and very easy to deal with when making a claim. Very helpful!

We've been buying trip insurance for over 10 years as we go to the beach during hurricane season. This is the first time we've had to file a claim. The claim process was fairly painless - we filled out one form and submitted the required proof of payment, and received our check within 20 days.

When you are putting thousands of dollars of deposits on a vacation rental house months in advance, trip insurance is a must-have.
