5 Tips on choosing a travel insurance company

1. Check out which is the largest company in the field from sources such as the IRDA site. Most probably you will come across ICICI Lombard, Bajaj Allianz and Reliance Gen, in addition to the GIC subsidiaries.

2. Check out their public disclosures on their sites. They have to provide quarterly data on claims settlement. Check out the companies who process the maximum percentage claims the fastest and have the least amt of pending claims vis-a-vis their revenue.

4. Make sure your coverage is the minimum required to obtain a visa, e.g. Schengen countries require min coverage of 30k Euro.
