Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The site was easy to navigate and find the option for coverage I found to be adequate.
I did not need to file a claim, so I cannot review that process.

I had to be hospitalized overnight in Playa del Carmen while on vacation. It too over 3 months for my primary insurance to process and pay my claim before I could submit to Nationwide. Once submitted to them, they paid all the remaining amount in less than three weeks. They were much easier to deal with than my own health insurance provider. They covered their obligation quickly with no hassles. I usually take a couple of trips a year and always buy travel insurance. Nationwide will continue to earn my business. They provide the coverage I need at a price that's very affordable.

This is the second time using Nationwide to insure our trips and thank goodness we did not have any claims. We previously filed a large claim on another trip and it was promptly handled.

Our trip was a 7 day cruise. On the day we boarded the ship, my husband wasn’t feeling well. He wasn’t getting better and we both had fears he may need to seek medical assistance. Fortunately, he was feeling better by the third day and recovered fully. We were both relieved to know that we had purchased travelers insurance to cover medical costs that could have been incurred. The peace of mind is well worth the cost!

Fortunately we did not have to use the policy , but glad that I had it . Friends have been the other countries and had accidents or health issues and several turned into major problems . That is why I always get this .
