The most reasonably priced plan for comprehensive coverage. Just glad I didn't have to use it but the price was worth the peace of mind. Will buy again for future trips.

In comparing insurance companies, I found the best rate and coverage for travel insurance through Nationwide. Thankfully, I didn't need to use it, but I would definitely consider buying insurance for a future trip with them. The phone representative was very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in helping me pick the right coverage to fit my needs.

I always insure my trips that involve air/hotel/etc. outside the continental US. I have used InsureMyTrip for every one and have always been pleased with the product and the service. Fortunately, I have only had one minor claim and it was handled very professionally.

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
First time traveling with an infant. I wanted a bit more piece of mind. TruTravel did that. Luckily I didn't have to file any claims, so I can't comment on that, but I was pleased with the benefits, price, and piece of mind that the plan offered. I was also pleased that surfing is not an exclusion as it is for some plans.

I believe the best insurance is good planning, but travel insurance is necessary for circumstances beyond our control. Frankly, I try not to be exposed to those circumstances, but spending a few hundred dollars to insure a vacation that cost several thousand dollars just makes good sense.
