      Pathetic! Truth about this company - If you take insurance from them, you'll end up paying high premium (highest in market) and will get the worst service ever possible. Customer care won't reply to any of your query for weeks, won't pass claims and if for some reason your money is stuck with them, consider it's gone forever.
