Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I really can't give a good review since (thankfully) I didn't need to use it. But I will say that it gave me peace of mind for a reasonable cost. Using a company with a name I was familiar with also gave me the confidence that, had I needed to use it, I assume it would have paid as expected.

I use your site to compare and purchase coverage for all of my trips, and Nationwide seems to provide the best deal, not just reasonable price, but generous coverage as well. I didn't file a claim on this trip, but I did once before and was satisfied with their response.

Thankfully, we did not have to use your services but were very relieved to have the coverage if needed.

We did not have to use the plan during our cruises but one CANNOT risk not having insurance, especially when in other countries. There was a significant price increase from last year for the same plan so guess so many insurance payouts in relation to all the past catastrophic weather events had an effect. This was the best plan for my money that covered the basic elements for my trip. Like all types insurance you are the decision maker, payee and risk taker.

My favorable rating is based on the peace of mind the plan gave me. As I did not file a claim, I can't rate the plan on its response to a claim.

Purchased this plan for our Caribbean cruise. I was happy with the coverage for the money. Can’t really say much beyond that because thankfully we don’t have any claims to submit.

Did not file a claim, so not sure how they are when you need to file a claim.
