Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Comparing plans and making the purchase online was easy. The plan added good coverage and made us feel relaxed about a potential strike with our airline.Thankfully we did not have to file any claims.

I can only vouch that the insurance premiums for the coverage is a very good value. Having travel insurance provides much peace of mind. However, a truly valid review is one from a customer who has filed a claim with Nationwide, and I have not.

It's impossible to evaluate how the plan did if I didn't use it. However, being an insurance agent & having more than the average guy's familiarity with insurance, I have found Nationwide to be the best & most reasonably priced policy to choose. Should I ever have a claim I assume they'll come thru for me. If not, they'll be dealing with a formidable opponent. Thank you.

thankful to have coverage (just in case) and even more thankful not needing to use it. Peace of mind is what I would call having Travel Insurance. :-)
Thanks,

Plan covered my needs for the trip. Since I did not need to file a claim, I cannot comment on the claim process.

Thankfully we did not need to use our trip insurance. We were happy with the plan that we had in place in case we needed it.

While it was not necessary for us to utilize the insurance I did feel secure in having it in place. I compared the cost with friends and it was less expensive for the same or higher coverage.

While the true test of an insurance policy/company comes with filing a claim, thankfully I did not have the misfortune of having to try it out. However, based on coverage needs at a competitive cost we choose Nationwide for almost all our travels.
