Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I didn't file a claim so I can't comment on the claims handling process but I can say I was pleased with the coverages including terrorism and baggage delay lines particularly. Good time amount (shorter than some other policies) for the baggage delay to kick in and all the other coverages that I'd want were included at a good price.

The customer service representative who sold me the product was great but I didn't need to make a claim so there is nothing more to add.

My mother-in-law was having medical issues and we just weren't sure if we might have to cancel at the last minute. Was good to know that if we had to cancel, we may be covered. Thanks!

I bought this plan solely based on all the good reviews. And just like everybody does, have a peace of mind during a trip.

I was not previously aware that you have to purchase insurance within 10-14 days after making first payment on trip to get coverage for pre-existing medical conditions, and you cannot get pre-existing medical conditions coverage after that.

Bought this plan since I was on a skiing trip to Colorado. Did not have to file a claim, but I wish I had this plan on a similar trip a few years ago when I did get hurt and had to pay out of pocket (my primary health insurance had $5000.00 deductible).

However, I did not file a claim. One can only give a true review when they file a claim.
