Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I felt I needed some type of insurance to travel. I did compare and felt the price was acceptable for something I hoped to not use. I also wanted it to be enough if I did need it. I do know there is a glossary to follow but the language for all the insurances is difficult to decipher.

The price seemed like one of the best. Thankfully we didn't need to make any claims. It's hard to say that a company is great when you haven't experienced their claim services, but it is fair to say that there were no problems.

Having the piece of mind that we would be okay financially should something go wrong during our vacation so far away from home was very important to me so I could relax and not worry about the unknowns and what ifs.

Well unfortunately I wasted $120.00 on this plan but it was awesome knowing I had the plan behind us if we needed it. For the money I thought the plan offered a good broad coverage of our needs. The plan even covered us before we left the house. The main reason I wanted the plan was it is hurricane season. The weather was perfect so thanks again for offering a great service.

We were satisfied with the price and what the plan covered. Luckily we didn't have to use it but it was a comfort knowing we had it in case of an emergency.
Thank You

Almost filed a claim for interrupted trip but was able to complete trip after getting meds from my home town doctor. The 2 reps with whom I spoke when considering a claim were very patient, polite, and helpful, and genuinely concerned about my situation.

While on my recent I recommended this plan to one of my fellow travelers and even showed him the plan so he could compare it with his re coverage and cost. He and his wife were impressed.
