  • I am travelling with my parents. Before joining us in France (Schengen country), they shall stay with my cousins in the UK (Non Schengen country). I have purchased a Gold X 50 plan for them. Will this same plan be valid for our holiday in France?

    No, you shall need to buy 2 separate policies- one for the schengen countries (S Plan) and another for the non schengen countries (Excluding US and Canada plan) since the product requirements are different for Schengen countries eg- no sub limits are applicable for schengen countries.

    The schengen visa requires a no sublimit plan so a non schengen plan (with sub limits) shall not be valid in schengen countries. Hence it is highly advisable that you check the geographical scope of the policies that you buy to avoid last minute hassles
  • I have been planning a trip with my family to France. While booking my tickets for the same, I read about the Schengen visa norms and the insurance requirements. In which Schengen countries shall I mandatorily have to buy insurance?

    The Schengen area signifies a zone of 26 different European countries that would mandatorily require you to avail a travel insurance policy which covers medical expenses up to 30,000 Euros without any restrictions or sub-limits.
    The Schengen countries are the ones enlisted below

  • I recently purchased an international travel policy bearing nomenclature Gold W 50 and was planning a trip to Europe. What does the name indicate and will this policy take care of my medical expenses that I may incur in Europe.

    The policy nomenclature consists of 3 parts - Gold indicates the plan opted by you, “W” indicates worldwide which is the geographical scope of the policy and “50” indicates USD 50,000 which is the medical sum insured of the policy.

    The Schengen region signifies a group of European countries that have specific insurance parameters and the worldwide plan shall not cater to these insurance requirements. So your Gold W 50 plan will not be valid in Europe.

    When planning a trip, it is highly recommended that the customer check the geographical scope of the travel policy prior to making a purchase. Please find below a ready reference on which plan shall be valid depending on the travel destinations.
