Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Our plan included secondary medical coverage. My husband had swimmers ear infection a few days before flying home.

The plan covered the expense 100% and I was pleased with the promptness of processing and payment for our claim.

Customer service staff were courteous when I contacted hem for a link to forms and clarification of submission of the claim.

There was quite a bit of documentation to submit for the claim- copies of passport pages, boarding passes, etc., but I do understand the need for such information.

Pleased that we had this coverage

Since i was going on the trip for a wedding i wanted coverage for several reasons. I was disappointed that the plan did not cover some important things for me - like if i had to cancel due to my daughter going into labor. It's pretty typical with trip insurance not covering things like that. The agent i talked to was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the plan. It was my choice to go ahead and buy the plan even though it did cover all my needs

Did not use, so can't review some items....I was satisfied with the cost of the plan I bought, but unknown if the coverage would have been good or not as not used.

I'm glad that I did not have to use the insurance that we purchased, but I felt confident that it would have been just what we needed if we had to file a claim for any reason.

Thankfully we didn't need to file a claim, but it was comforting to know that we would have been covered had we needed to. The website was easy to use
