Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
I had to make a trip delay claim due to Hurricane Irma stranding me in DC for a few days. All of my meal and lodging expenses were covered (I stayed within the limit fairly easily) and Nationwide was actually really fast in providing payment. It was the airline that took the longest just to get me a travel delay letter (no surprise there). I'd recommend this plan, it paid for itself.

I searched various websites for a plan that met my needs. The Nationwide plan fit the bill and was priced reasonably. I didn't have to use it, so can't comment on claims. I would use this plan again.

We researched several of these travel insurance companies to insure our non-refundable, costly plane tickets. Nationwide Mutual received good reviews online so we went with it. Fortunately, we didn't need the insurance plan, but we were glad to have it for peace of mind.
