I debated about even purchasing trip ins. I'm thankful I did not NEED it. I had peace of mind but totally bummed about spending the money. 😀

Not sure I can give a proper review as I had no need to utiize the coverage. I had a higher level of comfort knowing it was there should I needed it.

Fortunately, we did not have problems, so we did not have to file a claim. However, just knowing that we were covered in case of an emergency brought us great peace of mind.

I did not have to file a claim, so I am not really qualified to give an honest review.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I do a lot of leisure travel and because of older siblings, I usually purchase travel insurance to protect myself should anything family related come up which would prevent me from traveling. The cost for this insurance from Nationwide was well within reason, surely a lot better than losing the entire value of my trip should I have had to cancel. Nationwide had a series of plans which made choosing a plan very simple. I had a simple trip, I only needed simple coverage. The coverage I selected was more than adequate for my needs. Based on this experience, I would certainly purchase travel insurance with Nationwide again.

Good thing - we did not have any family emergencies, so did not need the insurance.

We had to file a claim due to a travel delay, and everything was processed within approx. 10 days. Good service.
