Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I can't say enough how pleased we are with the coverage of the plan. As we all know buying insurance is a crap shoot but it is all so very necessary. During our cruise I came down with the Norovirus. After it was all said and done we had $700 in medical charges from the medical facilities aboard ship. After returning home and following the instructions to file a claim, which was very easy and simple. Within the the time frame of the claim I received a check for the full amount of the claim!! What a awesome job Nationwide, we will purchase the Essential plan again on our next cruise in 2021!! Thank you for such a fantastic job.

Fortunately, I did not have to use this insurance but it was good to know that I had the coverage that I needed.

Since we did not need to use the coverage it’s hard to provide a lot of feed back. But, based on all I read, it covered the items/concerns we had prior to taking the trip. We felt comfortable that if any illness occurred with family or traveling companions, we had coverage. And, if there were delays with the trip or lost luggage, we were covered.

Reasonable cost. Did not have to file a claim, but happy pre-existing condition was covered, just in case.

It was very helpful as they send you a reminder of what information to take with you on the trip. They provide 24 hour phone numbers to call and are very clear on what the coverages include.

Did not have to file a claim thankfully. Insuremytrip did an A+ job of making shopping/comparing plans easy. Also A+ for getting the policy to me after purchase and even sent a reminder just before our trip about policy details and how to get in contact with them should a claim become necessary.

This is so much cheaper than what the travel gents or cruise lines have. The plans are very easy to compare too.
