Planning for a Holiday in India?

Travel Insurance to India
India is an incredible holiday destination. Nowhere else in the world can you find quite as much cultural and spiritual diversity in one place. If you are planning to travel to India, travel insurance is an absolute necessity. India is a developing nation, and as such, things can go wrong quite easily. Our rates are affordable and could save you tens of thousands of dollars if you get hospitalised or medically evacuated.
 
When you take out travel insurance to India, you will have extensive protection for both you and your belongings. This priceless peace of mind means that you can enjoy your holiday to the fullest. If anything should go wrong, you’ll be financially covered for it.
 
Because India is a developing nation, the rate of petty crime is high, particularly in large urban areas. Tourists make very easy targets for thieves and pickpockets. When you’re distracted and living in the moment, it can be easy to forget yourself and your belongings. Nowhere is it more inconvenient to lose your wallet, passport or laptop, than when you’re overseas. It is better to be safe than sorry in this respect, and take out travel insurance for yourself and your belongings. The small cost of purchasing affordable travel insurance is nothing compared to the peace of mind you’ll have if anything should go wrong.  
 
During the holiday season, i.e. from March to September, airports and train stations become passageways for extremely large numbers of people. The train stations of Mumbai are infamous for being chaotic and overcrowded. We recommend you have your destination and travel route pre-planned before you leave the door, so you don’t become confused and lost in the muddle. Luggage can easily be lost in these situations; so again, we recommend purchasing travel insurance – you’ll be covered for all your belongings. If you do decide to purchase travel insurance, we recommend you do it more than a week before you leave the country, that way you’ll be fully covered for medical and personal insurance the moment you enter India.
 
We recommend you sign up for a Travel Insurance Saver policy. These policies are flexible, personal and financially competitive. Travel Insurance Saver is an approved insurance portal, assisting customers to compare, choose and buy policies online at heavily discounted prices.

Size

With an estimated population of 1.339 billion, representing 17% of the world population, India is the world's second most populous country after China. Over the last 50 years, there have been many advances in medicine, agriculture and transportation in India. This has led to rapid growth in population.

Around 70% of Indians inhabit rural areas, but recent decades have seen the migration of many rural living Indians to cities, increasing the population of urban centres, resulting in megacities like Mumbai. India's largest cities are Mumbai (formerly Bombay), Delhi, Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), Chennai (formerly Madras), Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore), Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.

 

India travel insurance guide

The Australian government and Smart Traveller recommend you heavily research the country you are travelling to beforehand and book the most appropriate travel insurance for your trip. As mentioned, the minor cost of travel insurance is nothing compared to the potential costs of uninsured travel hazards.
