Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
My wife and I have traveled with another couple for the last 15 -20 years. We get along great and in my wife's case know each other since childhood. Anyway, not to prolong the story, we had planned our vacation this year for Hawaii - several days on Honolulu and then a cruise around the other islands. A week or so before the trip the spouse of our travel companions had some bad results to medical tests she took and as it turns out needed open heart surgery. As a result of this we certainly did not want to travel while she was undergoing this procedure. After submitting all of our documentation to Nationwide, within less then two weeks and without any questions beyond the documentation we submitted, we received a check in full for our entire trip. That is service personified.

PS: Most important, our friend's wife had the surgery yesterday and is doing well. That is the best news!

Traveling with families can be risky. You never know when one of you might get sick. I always get travel insurance to cover our airline tickets and most important our rental house. You might be able to change your tickets but not usually rental houses.

It was great knowing I had the insurance. It was a great price for all that was offered. I will use it again if needed.

The plan was easy to compare to other plans, both in price and coverage. The purchase process was also very friendly.

Since I did not need to use the insurance, I really can not rate your efficiency but I felt good that I had insurance and am glad that I did not have to use it!

Limited weekend customer service telephone coverage. Wanted to call at 6PM Pacific due to flight delay from Kona to LAX. Not open. The need to know was immediate.

    It sounds like you were trying to reach InsureMyTrip's customer service which is open on weekends from 9AM - 9PM EST. When you are traveling, please remember it is your insurance company's 24-hour emergency assistance number that you should be calling for any travel-related issues. The assistance companies have 2 telephone numbers: one toll free to call when inside the U.S. and Canada; one to call collect when outside the U.S. They are available around the clock to provide you with assistance.
