The Need For Travel Insurance
You take so much efforts on planning a trip abroad. The flights, hotel booking, places to explore, etc. the itinerary is all set. But what about the risks that you can be exposed to when on an overseas trip?
When on a far-off land, you wouldn’t even know whom to approach in case of an emergency. Unpredictable and unfortunate events are inevitable and not in your control. But what’s in your hand is to minimize the financial losses as much as you can.
That’s where the need for individual/family travel insurance arises.
It provides coverage for various misfortunate events right from medical expenditures, cancelled flight, baggage theft/loss, passport loss, etc.
Types of Individual/Family travel insurance
- Single Trip Travel Insurance
If you’re travelling just once a year, it is more sensible and cost-effective to select the single trip policy. It covers you right from the date you board the flight from India to the international destination and till your return date to India. The single trip works best for those who plan an annual family vacation.
- Multi-Trip Insurance
If you’re travelling more than once a year, then choose our Annual Multi-trip plan. It covers you from the time you leave home till you return home and that too multiple times throughout the year. If you love shopping abroad or you’re a business traveler, then the multi-trip policy works best for you.
