Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Since I didn't use the coverage it's hard to provide comments. Rep I spoke with was friendly and did her best to help. I felt like the rules around the policies were more complicated than they needed to be. And if I make a slight change to my travel plans that didn't affect what the policy is covering why am I obligated to inform you? That didn't make sense. It all needs to be simplified.
Lynn Z. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

We had to cancel our trip and got all of our money back but $16 so we did not file a claim.

My husband got a bad cold on our bicycling trip and couldn't continue, because you have to cycle point to point, and he couldn't breathe. We had to leave the trip early and return home. Upon reading our policy after returning home, he would have had to visit a doctor in order to receive compensation from this insurance policy.

Well as travel insurance goes it’s only good when needed. In the past I had to use my policy with Nationwide and the process was quick and efficient with payment. I will always use Nationwide insurance.

This review only covers the purchase of the plan. Because the trip went well and the insurance was not needed, I cannot review how well the plan works when you are needing compensation for the loss of your trip

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
We needed to cancel our trip due to an immediate family member's unexpected illness. We filed a claim with Nationwide and were satisfied with the coverage, payment and resolution of the claim; albeit the process took much longer than Nationwide's stated timeline for settling claims However, we fully understand and anticipated that given the many challenges travel insurance companies are presently experiencing with the ongoing pandemic, the process would be delayed. Without this coverage we would have incurred a substantial loss. We are very pleased with the the coverage and resolution of our claim with Nationwide and will utilize them again in the future and recommend them to other travelers.
