    Hello,, I recently took a travel insurance from Royal Sundaram General insurance for my Thailand trip,,, Unfortunately I encountered sea urchin Bite when I was in Phi Phi Island so wanted to assure myself by consulting a local physician ,, so got an appointment with the local doctor and got the necessary treatment and he billed me about 8000 INR and gave me the proper receipt and case sheet ,, Then I applied to Royal Sundaram General insurance for reimbursement after returning to India,, They initially tried to decline my insurance claim by asking some of my documents that are not even mentioned in the policy claim form but I sent them all the documents they asked and this cost me about 600 INR for courier charges,Finally after all this hardship I have received a reply that my claim could not be processesed due to Low Bill amount which was neither mentioned in my insurance form nor informed me prior to the trip ,, And this is really a silly reason,,so never believe this scumbags

    "Pathetic disbursal policy- rather not take an insurance"
    0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
    Please do not buy ICICI Lombard Travel insurance for any foreign or domestic travels.They charge very high premiums but do not pay out genuine claims. I had paid a very high premium (approx.. INR 15000) for my father's travel insurance who was coming to UK for a short trip. Unfortunately, he had a cardiac arrest in UK and had to be admitted in hospital. It must be noted that he did not have any prior heart conditions. I have proofs of ECG just before his travel and doctor's diagnosis to prove that. The interesting part is: ICICI Lombardâ??s claims settlement has been outsourced to a company called FGA (Falcon India). Now their incentives are based on minimal disbursal, due to which they tend to reject even the genuine claims. Disgusting Part: A doctor representing ICICI Lombard was sent to assess the case post incident and he indicated some money to be paid to him for a report supporting the claim. When my parents refused to pay any money, a false report was prepared

    "Religare only want new business - good luck with renewal"
    0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
    Religare is only interested in new business and not care about renewal travel insurance . Their customer care email (ironically customerfirst ?!?!?) is very badly programmed...everytime (even response to quick response) creating new case so they have excuse for new SLA to response. They don't understand that, customer is in foreign country and having risk of heavy fine/medical charges in case of not travel insurance in case of required renewal. My insurance was going to expired (which is already) on 23-Sep-2016 and I sent them renewal request on 20-Sep-2016 and on 21-Sep-2016 signed extension form but yet not received any communication back. More frustrating is, they don't have customer care phone number which can be reachable from outside India (as they have 1800- number). I will not go for them in future.....and advice other too if they have change of extension on trip.

    If I pay the premium for first year, I no need to pay the premium for three years. As this travel insurance was offered when I availed car loan. If there any accident happens while traveling the HDFC Ergo cover our hospital fee. Another option is there as they pay three months emi if we lost our job.

    "Don't buy reliance"
    0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
    Because of cancelled flight, I missed my connecting flight. Had to make fresh arrangements. On trying to claim, they say no flight or taxi charges will be refunded, its only for food and stay ( normally any Arline's will provide if they cancel) Now finally they have stooped down to a level saying... The policy document (u get after you purchase policy by making payment) doesn't say it will cover missed flight, when asked its in broucher, " our terms and conditions gets modified after the payment is made" by SWARUPA MARTIN claims officer. So my suggestion is reliance don't cover missed flight, try other insurance... Its worst of all.
