Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Although we also insure with insuremytrip when we travel abroad, we have never had a claim. In that regard, we have no basis to evaluate the quality and efficiency of the service.
That said, the process of obtaining cover is always quick and efficient thanks to courteous, knowledgeable staff.
Prices seem reasonable for the cover we get.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
In searching for travel insurance before my trip I found insure my trip. I determined that it provided exactly what I wanted and needed for a reasonable price. Although, I had checked with my very good health insurance company and determined I was also covered by them I wanted the extra protection coverage. It made a difference when I was abroad knowing I was well covered with health insurance. I am fortunate that I didn't have to file a claim but the peace of mind was nice.

I was glad I did not need it but would not have traveled without. Never know what could happen and knowing if something did I was covered! Will use you again if needed.

My father was placed on hospice 1 month prior to trip departure. I cancelled at that time and within 2 weeks received my refund difference. My father passed away during the trip dates, so not having to worry about the hassle of getting my money back was a great relief.

    Thank you for your 5 star review for your Nationwide Essential policy.
    Although we are very sorry to hear about the death of your father, we are pleased that Nationwide was able to provide such a quick settlement to your claim.

It was good to have peace of mind. Our cruise started with a delay to remove an I'll passenger from the ship by ambulance. Later, in Belfast, our ship was delayed again when a passenger died. These things do happen on vacations. I feel deeply for those passengers and their families and hope that they had insurance.

Fortunately I did not have to use the policy. It was less expensive than the insurance sold by the cruise line.

It's hard to write a review for a product I didn't use. I'm glad that I had no claim. Getting the policy was very easy and thorough.
