Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I broke my arm in Morocco and needed surgery. The claim process was a bit complicated but I did receive compensation for the medical part. Unfortunately, I needed transportation to rejoin my group and that was not covered. Overall I was happy with the results. Another complication was that I had another travel insurance policy for my trip to Costa Rica and the 2 plans got mixed up. It was resolved after about 30 minutes on the phone.

the far fact that I could not talk with a person in claims is absolutely stupid.

Outstanding. You get more than the cruise ship offers. I felt safe and great knowing I had insurance traveling so far. I didn't need to use it, but happy I had it, just in case! Great company! Great everything, price and what you get for your money. I highly recommend this company

The cost was reasonable for what we spent on the trip, but it is Insurance. If you need it, you're glad you have it, if you don't use it, it is a waste of money.

I regularly purchase travel insurance. Although I lucklily did not need to use the policy. I did come down with what was later dianosed with COVID. If I had to cacel the trip, the savings would have been significant

The only thing I did not like about my trip was the internet. I paid premium price and wished I hadn't. Never again.

The best thing about purchasing travel insurance is knowing that I am covered financially in case something happens. The peace of mind of knowing that you will receive help in the event of an incident is reassuring.
