So you are all excited about putting that first stamp in your Indian passport! Or it has been ages since you have traversed out of country for any reason? No other act accomplishes goals of bettering your own self by venturing beyond your comfort zone more than travelling overseas. There is no idyllic time as such to pursue new itineraries to discover more of our world and while at it, make changes for the better. Do not let the added money put you off from buying an international travel insurance, the peace of mind it gets is worth every dime.

What is International Travel Insurance?

Traveling abroad can be exciting as well as risky. Unforeseen eventualities such as medical emergencies, lost luggage, injury or illness, air crash etc., could be costly and a hassle when traveling through an unfamiliar, foreign locale. International Travel Insurance provides robust financial protection in all such unexpected situations.

On Purchasing a Global Travel Insurance for the Next Journey

One deciding factor is how much money you are willing to shell out for this. And does the covers mentioned make sense or are they relevant? You may wish to spend in coverage for more complex multi-destination journeys like cruises or package trips, where one gaffe could toss the whole holiday into a nose-dive. Should you choose to buy a global travel insurance, you may do so just a day before your journey date. But do the necessary research and comparisons first and be prepared instead of doing it as an afterthought.

What Does International Travel Insurance Cover?

This is also completely dependent on individual needs. International travel insurance can be roughly divided on the basis of risk-factor and cancel-if-you-want aspects. Both has explicit reimbursement inclusions and covers for specific requirements. It doesn’t matter what you opt for, your coverage must help assuage any damages ensued due to unanticipated situations. Some plans also comes with extra perks such as emergency medical repatriation and lost luggage assistance. Don’t make the mistake of grabbing the first plan you read about. Give yourself time to read through the fine print to spot the giant in the room even before it materializes.

Are International Travel Insurances with Frequent Flier Miles Available?

Very rarely. Let’s face it. The company that is going to handle your insurance claim is likely to do it in a way that it favors them. And as frequent flier distances are difficult to indemnify due to continual devaluation, you may never be sure of what might happen.

Is it Must that You Go Through All that Fine Print?

Insurance experts have been reiterating for years about the importance of reading the entire policy word to word and understanding it. All the details are normally in eye-killing fine print and nobody bothers to do that or has no time or patience. Consequentially, the customer doesn’t look into it until there is a problem. This hitch most often crops up when it comes to major omissions such as terrorism and political unrest. The basics such as journey interruption, cancellation, demise of a near and dear one and personal accidents are here to stay.

Tourists often get stumbled in the particulars of their plans, especially those that frame exclusions. For instance, only some international travel insurance plans insures against terrorism, which would greatly appeal to those going to the Middle East or African countries down north. But, the cases for which you can put in a claim are quite unambiguous. Many policies need an act of terrorism to happen within a definite radius of your destination for your claim to be accepted. In short just a warning notice from the government is not proof enough.

Critical health problems that were pre-existent can also create problems for insurance holders. This kind of constraints on pre-existing conditions entangle many a traveler who buy an insurance just in case they have to cancel their tour to attend a close family member’s funeral.

    "Good protection for luggage"
    0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
    I generally take Travel insurance with Bajaj , the premium is around Rs.49, I take the policy through the travel agencies for flight booking. They give luggage coverage, if I lost the luggage they will do claim settlement, they used to give acknowledge for the policy. They don't have medical cover in this plan.

    "Worst Insurance provider ever "
    0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
    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.

    The service offered by ICICI Two wheeler insurance is fine. I am holding this two wheeler insurance since 2010. The returns are not good the money value is less. One thing I would like to say the claim experience policy was very lengthy and they were unable to refund a particular amount.
