Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The Essentials plan that we purchased covered all the things we thought were essential, and at a reasonable price. I have bought this insurance before, and will buy it again. Nationwide has good reviews, and is the insurance company that underwrites insurance on the cruise line that I use as well. I can only get the plan I like by going through InsureMyTrip, and I have had good experiences dealing with them. I was able to change my insurance several times, as I had to change my trip plans due to COVID. Overall, I recommend both InsureMyTrip and Nationwide.

I didn't need it, but felt safer having extra coverage, since I was driving into Canada.

With all the problems with COVID-19 this company went the extra mile and showed me just how great their business really is. I will return business and let everyone I know to use this company.

Hard to remember what items were covered or the price since this was purchased many months ago but assuming it covered what was needed and the price was ok since I chose NW Mutual.

I gave 5 stars because I did not have to use the insurance. But I have dealt with Nationwide insurance for years, and that is why I chose them to insure my trip
