Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The purchase process was easy and went smoothly. We didn't file a claim so I don't know how that process would be. All in all, we were very satisfied with the plan.

Insurance was very reasonably priced and although we (thankfully) did not need it, we had peace of mind when traveling out of the country.

I thought the price was very fair and the company had other policies that increased coverage in areas that other travelers may be more concerned about. I had no major issues for which I needed to file a claim so I can't speak to the company response during the claim process. I thought the policy was fairly priced with excellent coverage.

It was a relief to know that I had the coverage I might have needed -- and a bigger relief not to need it! Peace of mind at a reasonable price.

We ALWAYS buy our insurance for the trips we plan through insuremytrip.com because we have lots of choices in all price ranges and we save a good deal of money versus insuring our trip through the ship/rental agency etcetc. It has saved us a lot of money through the years. And at our age (71&66) we must have trip insurance and saving money is all about smart living and planning our next adventure. Highly recommend the site.
We have not ever had to file a claim so can't comment on that but that's the purpose of insurance - in the event you have a crisis and need help!

We've purchased insurance from Nationwide in the past. They seem to offer the most for the money. Never had to file a claim, but will continue to purchase insurance for peace of mind.

Thank goodness we did not have to use it. I guess I could tell you better if I put a claim in, if it was a great plan! Hopefully I will never have to do that ----- then it is money well spent!
