Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
When I called to get information on trip insurance, the representative was very helpful. She did not try to oversell us on things we might not need. She even told us that we didn't need to print all the pages of the insurance agreement. The price was very reasonable and covered us in the event of weather cancellations, which was what we were most concerned with. Trying to get out of Buffalo, NY in January can be tricky.

Without the need to file a claim it is difficult to fully judge this insurance plan, but the price and coverage seemed appropriate if the need had arisen.

Thank goodness I did not have to use it, but glad it was available if I needed it.

Fortunately, we didn't have to use it, but were pleased with the cost of the insurance and of the confidence of knowing we'd be covered.

TruTravel was great in every way. Plans are flexible, costs reasonable, the staff friendly and professional, and claim settlement reasonably quick. I have nothing but praise for the company.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
As I did not file a claim, it is difficult to judge how good this policy would be when it comes down to conducting the business of settling someone's problem. I know that for the short business trip I was taking, the policy appears to have covered the things of a great concern for me: trip interruption, trip cancellation, lost luggage (since some of mine was work-related). And for under $30, it seems to take a good deal into consideration for such a reasonable price. I would not have chosen it had I not read reviews from others who had actually filed claims. I have two more trips upcoming -- both for pleasure, so TruTravel will definitely be at the top of my list when I'm seeking quotes.

I was so happy to find InsureMyTrip.com. I had tried other insurers but there was a flaw in their policy guidelines. If I needed to cancel my trip because of a family issue, I needed to make sure that all my family members were considered family under their policy. If you have "step" family members, you need to query your travel insurer in great detail making sure all members are covered. In my case while shopping for coverage, all "step" members were covered with the exception of "step siblings". Somehow those important family members were omitted from guidelines of at least two companies I contacted. Once I found InsureMyTrip.com, that problem went away. Their policy guidelines covered ALL "step" family members. I will certainly use InsureMyTrip.com again in the future. They were outstanding to work with and found the right coverage just for me.
