Saving-Up on Travel Insurance Premiums

Who doesn’t love discounts? A few things can actually help you lower your premiums.

  • Purchase your policy online

Buying student travel insurance online as compared to offline is not just hassle-free but also gets you incredible discounts. It helps you save your hard-earned money.

  • Select the right deductible

Deductible is the partial amount that you have to pay towards the claim while the remaining amount is paid by the insurer. The deductible impacts the premium. So just make sure you select your deductible based on what works best for you and what suits your travel needs. 

  • Buy insurance as soon as you book the trip

The nearer you are to the trip, prices can increase. When you have already locked down on the academic course/college, destination and trip dates, then don’t delay in buying student travel insurance. You can lock the lowest rates with us to get discounts and better coverage.

  • Assess the risks involved

You need to assess the health and safety risks of the destination to be visited. If less risky, then you don’t need a high medical cover. And you can opt for the basic cover depending on the number of days you will be staying in the foreign land.
