Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
Two months before our trip my wife came down with a very serious and rare bacterial infection that prevented us from taking the trip. When we cancelled with the trip company we knew we would lose more than half the cost per their policies. I have bought trip insurance in the past but never had to use it and was unsure as to how much I would have to fight with the insurance company to collect the money we lost with the trip company. Well to my suprise, when I called Nationwide (and actually talked to a human representative) she was very friendly and walked me through the application process. I submitted all the paper work and called a week later to make sure they got it. I could not believe it when they told me that they had recieved my application and that it had been approved and the check was in the mail.

Did not have to use the insurance/make a claim so don't know if it would have been a good experience with insurer or not. Price was very reasonable for the coverage indicated.

Fortunately, our trip was flawless in both travel and medically speaking and we did not need to file any claims. There were seven medical emergencies on our cruise and with each one, I thought of the plan we purchased and was so glad we bought coverage. I felt relaxed and secure in knowing I had "Insuremytrip" and Nationwide Mutual supporting me if such an emergency had occurred to my wife or me.

I compared Nationwide Mutual with the company I usually purchase insurance from. I found better coverage for less money. Thankfully, I didn't have to file a claim.

While I did not make any claim (thank goodness) on my insurance during the trip, the coverage definitely provided peace of mind. Of all the carriers offered, I think Nationwide was the most cost effective for the same features/coverage I was looking for my trip to Italy.
