As far as price, Nationwide car insurance is more expensive than most of its competitors. The company ranks in the bottom quartile in WalletHub’s price ranking study.
Nationwide’s car insurance coverage options are pretty basic, however, and their list of discounts is relatively limited compared to other auto insurers. But Nationwide does make it convenient to bundle auto insurance with other types of policies, so it’s a one-stop shop.
Nationwide car insurance is not available in Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana or Massachusetts, unfortunately.
Nationwide Home Insurance Review Highlights
Nationwide offers both homeowners insurance and renters insurance, along with discounts for bundling them with other Nationwide insurance policies.

Overall, Nationwide’s homeowners and renters insurance policies provide dependable coverage at a reasonable price.
