What is a Travel Insurance, anyway?
No matter how many travel blogs and guides we read and how much we plan, there are always those little travel glitches we end up tangling ourselves over in a land far away from home. Whether you’re jinxed with your luggage or get under the weather while you’re on vacation; they’re called glitches for a reason. They come in unannounced and happen all of a sudden; and that’s why you have something like a travel insurance coverage to protect you against all the odds!
A travel insurance protects you against losses and unpredictable travel glitches that could come up on your trip; right from flight delays and baggage losses to thefts, illnesses and accidents.
The Importance of a Travel Insurance
Strikes or riots
Lost or misplaced your Passport or Visa
For all you know, you may not even have lost your travel documents. But, how much ever you rack your brains, you just can’t remember where you kept it! Thankfully, your travel insurance understands your plan and covers you for the expenses when you cancel a trip due to loss of passport.
So, get your book out and treat yourself to a gourmet coffee at the airport!
Missing the flight altogether
We got your back here, buddy. Digit travel insurance reimburses you for missing the connecting flight, if your previous flight gets delayed by more than 75 minutes.
There is a light at the end of this tunnel!
1. Emergency hospitalization or death of the insured person or an immediate family member or travelling companion.
2. You are summoned by court and its date falls within the travel period.
3. Damage to your home destination or travel destination due to a Natural calamity.
4. Strike or civil commotion.
5. Loss of passport before departure
