Nationwide provides claim handling service 24 hours, 7 days a week. Customers can manage their payments, policies, and auto claims online. Nationwide offers other additional coverage options like accident forgiveness, vanishing deductible, roadside assistance, and towing and labor. Nationwide customers also have access to the On Your Side auto repair shop network, which guarantees the highest quality repairs. Policyholders can take advantage of their free annual insurance review (the On Your Side Review) to review possible changes in your policy that could unlock further car insurance discounts.
Other notable features include the SmartRide program, which allows Nationwide to monitor your safe driving behavior through a mobile app or small device, allowing you to stave off insurance rate increases; the Nationwide family plan, which renders each member of your family entitled to every policy feature and discount for which you qualify; and a paperless discount.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Nationwide was founded in 1926.
Nationwide is a mutual insurance company, meaning its policyholders function as its owners. While Nationwide specializes in personal auto insurance coverage and other property and casualty insurance policies, like motorcycle insurance, classic car insurance, and ATV insurance, it's far more than an auto insurance company. Nationwide also sells life insurance, homeowners insurance, and specialty coverages like travel insurance, dental insurance, and wedding insurance. As one can imagine, multi-policy discounts abound.
A.M. Best, a credit rating company that assesses the financial strength of insurance companies, gives Nationwide an "A+," denoting superior financial health and ability to pay out claims.

I’ve been with nationwide for many years as a happy customer. I’m looking over the market to see if my rates are high or low.
Never could get a straight answer. No one would call me back. Got the run around. My rates kept climbing when my husband and I have perfect driving records.
