One of the India's leading Insurtech startup, InsuranceDekho, has recently expanded its product portfolio by offering ‘Travel Insurance' on its online platform. InsuranceDekho has partnered with HDFC Ergo, Reliance General, Care, ICICI Lombard and Bajaj Allianz to offer the travel insurance products and is in the process of tying up with other insurers.
The platform offers curated travel plans for family and individuals, corporates and students, with prices starting at INR 552 and covering 198 countries, subject to terms and conditions which may vary from insurers to insurers. The policies provide a wide range of coverage, depending on the plan chosen. However, almost all of them include important covers like loss of passport, emergency medical expenses, flight delay, loss of checked-in baggage, medical evacuation, etc.
Commenting on the launch Mr. Ankit Agrawal, Co-Founder and CEO of InsuranceDekho, said, "In the post-COVID era, Indians are traveling again with international travel growing at 76% YoY which has widened the market for insurance providers. There is high digital adoption for travel insurance as currently more than 33% Indian international travelers buy insurance directly from the insurance company’s websites, which makes this an attractive segment for innovation and disruption. We are building InsuranceDekho as a one-stop shop for all insurance solutions and diversified investment options; this is one crucial step in that direction."
