The Travel Insurance premium amount varies based upon the travel destination. If you are traveling to Japan, then you have to pay a higher premium as compared to most other Asian countries, because natural disasters occur more often in Japan.

  • Coverage

If the Insurance Policy is covering a more significant number of benefits, the premium will increase, according to the coverage. Therefore choose appropriate covers and Add-Ons that you will need for the destination.

    • Types of Travel Insurance Plan

    If you are opting for a Single-Trip Insurance Plan, you need to pay a low premium for the insurance policy. But if you are availing the Annual Multi-Trip Insurance Cover, the premium rates will be high. However, a Multi-Trip Insurance is more beneficial and cost effective if you are a frequent traveller.
