Any travel plans should be covered with an insurance policy to avoid the unwanted. Many things can happen during a trip, domestic or abroad, and the costs for keeping the plans in place can quickly span out of control. That is why it is recommended whenever booking a trip to also make sure you have the minimum insurance in place. For some customers, a basic travel insurance comes as a package with the credit card. But these policies are not available from all banks, and most notably come for premium credit cards (Gold customers and above).
For the cases where no insurance policy is included by the bank, we recommend getting travel insurance from an insurance company of your own or book such a policy online. Getting your travel insurance online is easy as 1-2-3:
- Get you travel details (departure & arrival dates, country/city of travel)
- Visit the online travel insurer website
- Fill in the details of your trip and get your insurance
The travel insurance policy gives you peace of mind by allowing coverage for medical emergencies (any unplanned medical problems, accidents), travel delays or cancellations (flights, hotels), cruise insurance or even visa related problems coverage. There is a possible compensation for flight delays or cancellations you may be able to qualify for without any other travel insurance, just check for the criteria and make your claim online. The company behind the insurance policy is capable of offering insurance plans to customers from over 175 countries. The policy is issued online, with no trip required to a local insurance office, and the same happens if a claim is made – everything is handled online, for the convenience of the customer.
