Customer Reviews


Anuj Kasliwal

I heard a lot about fraud and theft incidents in Bangkok from my peers. I wanted to enjoy my bachelor party with peace of mind. One of my friends suggested me ICICI Lombard. The entire process of buying the policy was simple and easy. Thankfully, everything went fine and I didn’t make a claim and it offered me the peace of mind I wanted.


Aniket Goyal

It was my first trip to Thailand and I was having a great time experiencing Thai food and culture. On the second day of my trip, I slipped in the hotel lobby and suffered a fracture in my right leg. Thanks to ICICI Lombard’s International Travel Insurance as it took care of my hospitalisation expenses. I never felt for a moment that I was on a foreign land with a broken leg
