Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
We needed to cancel our trip due to an immediate family member's unexpected illness. We filed a claim with Nationwide and were satisfied with the coverage, payment and resolution of the claim; albeit the process took much longer than Nationwide's stated timeline for settling claims However, we fully understand and anticipated that given the many challenges travel insurance companies are presently experiencing with the ongoing pandemic, the process would be delayed. Without this coverage we would have incurred a substantial loss. We are very pleased with the the coverage and resolution of our claim with Nationwide and will utilize them again in the future and recommend them to other travelers.
George K. would recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

I did not have to file a claim or use the policy but the peace of mind having it while I was abroad is priceless. Of course, had I needed to invoke any of the coverage, the ease or difficulty of doing so could change my opinion.
