It's tough to rate something like this since I didn't have a claim to file. Price was good, however, and coverage was adequate.

Fortunately I did not have to use the insurance but it gave me peace of mind knowing I had coverage. The price seems fair and less expensive than that which was offered through the tour service I was using. Definitely call and talk to an agent - extremely helpful!

The Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential coverage and price seemed fine. I did not need to file a claim, so I don't know how well they are with that.

I have actually never had to use any of the travel insurance I have obtained, so I can't really speak to how good any of them were.

One of the things that I find distressing is if you have a medical problem which delays your trip, the additional expenses incurred are not covered such as hotel, food, transportation costs, which, over 4 days or so can add up. I realize that we purchased the policy for a specific amount of time, but when that time is extended due to factors out of our control, the policy should cover some of those costs. I will be certain to ask more questions of Nationwide before I purchase their policy again.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. Unfortunately, the Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential plan does not cover travel delay due to an illness or injury. In addition, the policy certificate does not list an illness or injury as a reason for an extension of coverage. We offer comprehensive plans from different insurance providers that do cover travel delay due to illness or injury, and extend coverage up to 7 days due to an unavoidable circumstance. In the future, please call InsureMyTrip so that our representatives can recommend a policy that best suits your needs.

I didn't need it but was very glad I had it. I had a very comprehensive policy and great peace of mind while I traveled.

Since I didn't file a claim, I can't review thoroughly. But the price was reasonable for the type of coverage I selected.

Happily, we didn't need to use our insurance but we appreciated the security of having the coverage. We also appreciated the last minute reminder that TruTravel e-mailed to us with the necessary numbers that we should call in an emergency.
