Mansi Joshi

I was apprehensive of accidents and thefts prior to my trip to Italy. A friend of mine suggested me the ICICI Lombard International Travel Insurance. The staff was friendly and helpful to me as they guided me through the process step-by-step. The process was simple and rates were competitive. I couldn't have had a better insurance plan for my trip.

I lost my luggage on arrival in Milan. My friend was so disappointed that he almost decided to return back. Thanks to ICICI Lombard’s International Travel Insurance, we got the compensation for our lost luggage. They saved our trip. I would definitely recommend their services to others.
