Emergency Medical Treatment & Evacuation
God forbid if you fall ill during your trip in an unknown country, don’t panic! We will take care of your treatment costs. We will cover you for expenses like hospital room rent, operation theatre charges, etc.
We hope this cover is never required. But for any accident during the trip, resulting in death or a disability, this benefit is there for support.
Daily Cash Allowance (Per day/Max 5 days)
When on a trip, you manage your cash efficiently. And we do not want you to shell out anything extra for emergencies. So, when you are hospitalized, you get a fixed daily cash allowance per day, to manage your daily expenses.
Accidental Death & Disability
While this cover has everything like the emergency accidental treatment cover, it has one extra layer of protection. It also covers death & disability while boarding, de-boarding or are inside the flight (Touchwood!).
Emergency Dental Treatment
If you encounter acute pain or meet with an accidental injury to your teeth on the trip, resulting in emergency dental treatment provided by a medical practitioner, we will cover you for the expenses incurred due to the treatment.
Smooth transit covers
If unfortunately, your trip gets cancelled, we cover the pre-booked, non-refundable expenses of your trip.
Common Carrier Delay
If your flight gets delayed by more than a certain time limit, you get the benefit amount, no questions asked!
Delay of Checked-in Baggage
Waiting at the conveyor belt is annoying, we know! So, if your checked-in baggage is delayed for more than 6 hours, you get the benefit amount, no questions asked!
Total loss of Checked-in Baggage
The last thing that can happen on a trip is your baggage getting lost. But if something like this happens, you get the benefit amount for the entire baggage getting permanently lost. If two out three bags are lost, you get a proportional benefit, i.e. 2/3rd of the benefit amount.
Missed the flight? Don’t worry! We will pay for extra accommodation and travel needed to reach the next destination shown on your ticket/itinerary if, you miss a pre-booked onward flight because of a delay in the flight.
Loss of Passport
The worst thing to happen in an unknown land is to lose your passport or visa. If something like this happens, we reimburse the expenses, if it is lost, stolen or damaged while you are outside of your country.
If on a bad day, all your money is stolen, and you need emergency cash, this cover will come to your rescue.
Emergency Trip Extension

If due to an emergency during your trip, you need to lengthen your stay, we will reimburse the cost of hotel extensions and return flight rescheduling. The emergency could be a natural calamity in your travel area or an emergency hospitalization..
In case of emergency, If you had to return home early from your trip, that would be really sad. We can’t fix that but we will cover charges for alternate travel arrangements and non-refundable travel costs like accommodation, planned events and excursion expenses.

Best time to visit Dubai for Indian Citizens
If you haven’t yet planned out your dates of travel, you might want to consider the weather conditions, local events, tourist activities and a lot more before you freeze on your travel dates. Like most countries in the Middle East, the summers aren’t really a recommended time of the year. This is because the temperatures can be scorching hot, limiting you from lots of outdoor activities. However, the months between November to April are a great time to visit, owing to the pleasant weather conditions and a host of events and festivals that are at its peak during this time.
If you’ve already confirmed on your dates of travel for the summer season, fret not! There are tons of activities for the summer babies as well. Right from the water parks, the beautiful beaches and resorts, an array of water sports, and the famous Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates, where you can try your hand at skiing and friend some penguins too! Dubai never fails to surprise. There’s something to do for just about anyone.
Note: Since the UAE is a Muslim country, Ramadan is widely practiced and currently falls during the summer season. Due to this, a lot of timings and activities may differ, such as a lot of restaurants only start serving food after sunset (the time at which Muslims break their fast). You may want to check on the dates and details based on this and make plans accordingly.

Ordinary Indian Passport Holders (Applicable for both Tourist & Transit Visas) - The process of obtaining a tourist visa for an Indian national can only be arranged by a sponsor in UAE.
