We had to change our travel plans due to the hurricane. We had not made any claims against the insurance company. They were very helpful and switched our insurance to the new destination without having to buy a new policy.

Tankfully we didn’t need to use the insurance. However the coastguard had to pick someone who became ill up with a helicopter while we were at sea. I hope they are okay and had some insurance.

It was necessary to make a change in airline times after I purchased the policy. This was handled in a fast, efficient manner.

My trip was canceled by airline because of the weather. I was able to get refund outside of insurance. All left overs were reimbursed by NW

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I purchased travel insurance for our family of four mainly for the medical coverage. A policy combined with loss of baggage etc. was the best deal even though we had trip insurance coverage for through our credit card. We were in Vietnam for three weeks with our adult children.

It turned out I did get sick (food poisoning) and one suitcase was missing when we arrived. The suitcase showed up after three days and I recovered without going to a doctor (we did check where to go just in case though). So we did not file any claims.

The total premium on four policies was significant. However, even though we did not file any claims, we got pretty close to needing medical help. So it was a comfort that we had coverage if things had been a lottle worse.
