How do you claim your Travel Insurance
  • If you are employed, you may use a portion of the premium that is used to pay for emergency medical coverage.
  • If you are self-employed, you may use a part of the travel insurance as a tax deduction. But it is mandatory that the trip has to be associated with your business at hand and nothing personal or any other business related.
What kinds of Trips are Considered for Deduction?

Trips such as:

  • Visiting a client
  • Traveling for a seminar
  • Business convention
  • Work-related training
  • Business conference

Also, your expenses are exempted by filing a travel insurance claim if you are attending an industrial promotion. Any circumstance where more than light refreshments are provided will be considered as a part of the enjoyment and not the business.

Even for a self-employed individual, the training course should be related to the job for it to be considered.

Here are two examples for better explanation:

Eg. 1: If you are a software industry person attending a course on new software, travel insurance is tax deductible.

Eg. 2: If you are a software person and you are traveling to attend a course on self-management or accounting, this is not considered to be tax-deductible, as the course is not directly related to your business
