Whether you are travelling alone or with your family, make sure that you keep some local emergency contacts on speed dial.

Inform the Local Police

In case you find yourself stuck in an emergency situation involving an accident or passport loss, the first thing that you need to do is inform the local police authorities. At the time of travel insurance claim settlement, you would need to provide a copy of the police report. For example, if you lose your passport or get mugged, a police intervention will be required. Your travel insurance provider will ask you to submit your police report for claim and any other assistance.

So make sure that you file a claim as soon as there is an emergency. This will ensure that you get your claim is settled timely and you get help at the time of need.

Keep Evidences Ready

Another crucial aspect is to have all the possible evidences ready at the time of filing your travel insurance claim.
