Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
We ALWAYS buy our insurance for the trips we plan through insuremytrip.com because we have lots of choices in all price ranges and we save a good deal of money versus insuring our trip through the ship/rental agency etcetc. It has saved us a lot of money through the years. And at our age (71&66) we must have trip insurance and saving money is all about smart living and planning our next adventure. Highly recommend the site.
We have not ever had to file a claim so can't comment on that but that's the purpose of insurance - in the event you have a crisis and need help!

We've purchased insurance from Nationwide in the past. They seem to offer the most for the money. Never had to file a claim, but will continue to purchase insurance for peace of mind.

I didnt need to "use" the insurance (which is good news). But in the past, I've had to file a claim and was quite impressed with the entire process.

Very satisfied. Three days before our cruise we had a medical emergency and need to cancel our 12 day cruise. We called claims and were given a claim number, with directions on what was needed to file the claim. Sent all needed paperwork in an email with a PDF file to claims. We received 2 checks in the mail approximately 3 weeks later, minus port taxes that Royal Caribbean refunded. Thank you Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. We purchased the Essential Plan coverage.

Although I didn't need to use the policy, it was good knowing it was there in case on an emergency. We were able to get everything we needed on the policy and at a reasonable price. Thank you.

I have insured through Nationwide with almost all of my trips using InsureMyTrip. They are very reasonable for the coverage they offer. This was the first time I have had to file a claim and was pleasantly surprised. The customer service representatives I spoke with were very kind and helpful. They immediately sent me the forms to file and told me all of the paperwork I would need. The claim was handled very quickly with no problems at all. This is the kind of company that I like to deal with and would highly recommend them to anyone. They will continue to be the company I use in the future. Thank you Nationwide for a great experience.

I am extremely satisfied with the plan I purchased through Nationwide that covered a cruise. I had to cancel our cruise due to illness. I submitted the claims forms and received a prompt reimbursement. I would definitely use this company in the future.
