Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I have read many reviews of different insurance companies before choosing Nationwide. It turned out to be a good decision. Even though it took several emails back and forth, the situation was explained and resolved in a very professional and courteous way. The representative who handled our claim was extremely polite, professional, and caring. She tried everything in her power to expedite the process. Our experience with Nationwide was nothing but positive.

Almost had to use it as my wife was put into the hospital. It was a relief to know I had this insurance. I will rate my other Nationwide policy after I use it, as she can not got on our next trip.

I was looking for a inexpensive plan to insure the trip cost if an emergency prevented travel. This plan had the best price for enough coverage.

This is a fairly inexpensive way to gain peace of mind that your trip cost is covered against cancellation/interruption/delay of travel. Just be sure to check that you aren't already covered through your credit card company.

There was no need to make a claim but it was reassuring to know that all the time and money invested in the trip was backed up in the event of unforeseen or unexpected possibilities.

We did not have to use this plan, thank goodness. I think all of these reviews are useless unless you file a claim. (As I found out when I had to file a claim with ANOTHER company.)
