Travel insurance is indispensable, particularly when you are planning to travel abroad. Medical emergencies during travel can happen to anyone, at any point in time and can jeopardize the entire plan. The COVID-19 pandemic has already made people aware of the significance of travel insurance. But what if you get COVID-19 while travelling abroad? Will your international travel policy cover the cost of hospitalisation?
“All international travel policies cover treatment of COVID-19 including OPD and hospitalization up to medical sum insured opted. An insured detected with COVID-19 should immediately visit the nearest healthcare center and inform the insurance company for availing cashless claim if any,” says Sourabh Chatterjee, Senior President & Head-IT, Web Sales, Travel, Bajaj Allianz General Insurance.
