Some travel insurance policies also provide extra perks like emergency repatriation, hijack and lost luggage cover. It is important to do your research and then make the purchase.

Read on to know everything about travel insurance policies:

What Do You Need a Travel Insurance Policy?

There are plenty of reasons to buy a travel insurance policy:

  1. Flight Cancellation or Delay: Nothing can be more heart wrenching than missing your flight to your favourite destination. But if you are insured, then you would be reimbursed for any flight delay of more than 12 hours than the actual departure time.
    You would also be compensated for any unplanned accommodation, which you have to take up due to delay.
  2. Growing Medical Costs: You must be aware that any medical treatment in the west can create havoc in your entire bank balance. You will have to meet the entire medical expenses and hospitalization costs on your own. Any medical care can turn out to be overwhelming for you.
    Only if, you have a travel insurance policy, you would not have to bear whole medical expenses on your own. Even the ambulance costs would be borne by our insurer.
  3. Emergency Repatriation Costs: In the event of death during the trip, there would be no support from anyone for repatriation or emergency medical evacuation. It will involve a lot of time and financial efforts from your end.
    But if you have your travel insurance policy in place, then you would not need to worry about it. Your insurer would compensate you for the same. For example – you can buy travel insurance to get yourself covered from such exigencies.
  4. Bear the Loss of Passport or Luggage: At any time during the trip, if you happen to lose your baggage and belongings, then you would have to bear the cost of acquiring a new passport and the cost of replacing your belongings.

You will end up bearing the actual loss, as well as you would need to pay an extra amount to replace the loss. If you are insured, then you would be compensated for any such loses.

How to Get a Travel Insurance Policy?

The procedure of buying an overseas or a domestic travel insurance policy is exactly the same. The only difference that lies is in their price and the features.

First things first, you need to make a checklist of the possible risks and your requirements during the trip.

For example, do you have an underlying medical condition or have you booked your tickets on your loyalty points? Depending on these criterions, you would need to shortlist the policy options.

Secondly, check your medical insurances to see if any of them cover your medical expenses for travel.

Thirdly, the best time to buy your travel insurance is when you book the trip.

Also, opt for a plan that recompenses for lost luggage. After shortlisting the policies you can compare the costs of the travel insurance policies before making the purchase online.

What Are The Different Types of Travel Insurance Policies?

There are various travel insurance plans that are available in the market for keen travellers like you.

  • Comprehensive Travel Insurance: A Comprehensive Travel Insurance policy is the most popular travel insurance policies. You can opt for a domestic travel option as well as an overseas travel insurance policy.
    It mainly covers medical emergencies, accidental injuries, loss of luggage, etc. you can buy this policy for single trips and multi-trips. It is available for individuals and families both.
  • Medical Travel Insurance: A medical travel insurance policy is for people travelling overseas. It covers medical emergencies including emergency evacuation. It is also called International Travel Insurance, International Medical Insurance as well as Travel Health Insurance. 
  • Travel Accident Cover: It offers coverage in case of an accident during the trip or an accident before the trip that may lead to trip cancellation. To ensure that you do not have to face any such situation, you should opt for a travel accident insurance policy that will offer financial compensation during such trying times.
  • Student Travel Insurance Plans: These plans are designed to safeguard students while studying abroad. 

There are other plans as well and you can select the one that works just right for you. The other types are also based on age and are divided between single trip, multiple trips, and senior citizen plans.
