Hello Nik,
Most travel insurance plans are package plans that include various coverage like trip cancellation, trip interruption, trip delay, lost or delayed baggage, medical coverage, medical evacuation etc.

Hi Nik

Travel insurance can usually be arranged at the time of the booking of a trip to cover exactly the duration of that trip, or a "multi-trip" policy can cover an unlimited number of trips within a set time frame. Some policies offer lower and higher medical-expense options; the higher ones are chiefly for countries that have high medical costs, such as the United States.

Travel insurance also covers the following –

  • Emergency expenses made for medical evacuation to India
  • Compensation for death or permanent disability due to an accident, while riding as a passenger in a common carrier
  • Loss of checked in luggage by a common carrier
  • Expenses incurred if your trip is delayed due to flight delay or cancellation
  • Reimbursement of return ticket fare for a family member visiting you, the insured, if you’re hospitalised for more than 7 days
  • Facility to provide you emergency cash in case you lose travel funds due to theft
  • Insurance against burglary in your home, while you are travelling abroad
