Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
This insurance was purchased for a short trip to Canada where US medicare isn't covered. Thankfully, the insurance wasn't needed, but it was well worth the peace of mind.

Thankfully, I didn't need to use the plan for its main purpose -- emergency medical and trip coverage. However, my flight and luggage were both significantly delayed - events supposedly covered by the plan. I contacted customer support and although they were responsive, they provided absolutely zero actual material help in either speeding up delivery of the delayed luggage or providing any compensation related to the delays.

Although the plan covered my concerns when it came to canceling my flight it's hard to evaluate the plan and the service it would provide unless an actual claim was made. I can only assume your customer service and the plans worthiness would have been satisfactory.

This plan provided exactly the basic coverage I needed for the best price. Got it last year for the same type of trip, got it again this year, and will look for it again the next time I take this type of trip.

I am completely satisfied with my purchase of travel insurance through Insure My Trip. I have purchased travel insurance with Insure my Trip on several occasions and have not had to file a claim in the past. During my most recent trip I had an accident and had to visit the ER. My travel insurance provided reimbursement not covered by my primary health insurance. I will continue to purchase travel insurance for future trips through Insure My Trip.
