Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
All I really want is coverage for beach house occupation cancellation or delays from storms. I don't need all the medical stuff. Would be nice to have a very cheap policy that just provided protection from lose of my rent for the beach house

This coverage gave me a secure feeling, when the vacation rental wanted all their money up front with a no refund policy.

The process was easy, and the staff member on the phone was very patient and nice. I had never bought trip insurance before, and she answered all my questions without making me feel silly about how simple they were. She made the experience very pleasant, and I would use the service again for an expensive trip.

Cheap plan for ease of mind. I ended up having to file a claim and they did not hesitate giving me my money back. It took 18 days to receive my check which was very suffice.

I can't decide if this is worth the money to get insurance or not but I guess if I had a problem I would be happy I had it. They were very nice and helpful.

Didn't have a need to file a claim; however, I chose the TruTravel Super Saver because it seemed a better value for the coverage than all the other plans I'd researched.

Representative was professional and helpful in explaining my coverage. I am glad my trip was successful and I did not have to use my coverage, having this coverage gave me piece of mind.

I traveled in American Airlines, never on Continental, the Insurance made me feel comfortable knowing I was protected. However it puzzles me why it says " I flew Continental"

Would I have been covered if I had not been in Continental????
