Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
A great price for some basic insurance needed for a winter trip, in case of delays or plane cancellations due to weather.

Knowing I had the protection is reassuming to my family and myself. The good news is the trip did not realy test the questions above asked. Still I will buy it again through Insuremytrip, you will get remainder before you leave about what you have purchase as well as tips about travel. Never overdone.

Our travel often involves using credit card miles program reward travel for airfare, car rental, etc. This insurance does not cover losses of those expenses. These trip insurance companies need to figure out a way to do so, as this is no doubt a common scenario and an untapped business opportunity.

Best response after a trip: Once again, I didn't need to use it. Once again, I was glad to know I had it. Hate paying for it as an ancillary cost of being an older traveler, but I do it every time now.

It was very easy to secure travel insurance via the internet. A site compiles trip insurance from many trip insurance companies so one can easily compare prices and coverage. I was impressed with the coverage of Nationwide and their pricing.
I would never buy trip coverage through a travel agency or travel company.
