ICICI Lombard Offers Fresh Approach for Students With Overseas Student Travel Insurance
MUMBAI, August 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company Limited, India's largest private sector general insurance company, recognised for its quality products and services offers a fresh approach to all students planning a trip abroad for further studies.
Studying and living abroad may sound thrilling and exciting. But, before signing up for the exciting days ahead, it is a must for all students to chalk out a plan that can help them remain at peace all throughout their study abroad. It is imperative that the students prepare a comprehensive checklist and ensure completion of all the important tasks required for a smooth transition from their home town to the study town abroad.
ICICI Lombard's Overseas Student Travel Insurance is a comprehensive plan designed to offer students a safe and secured stay abroad. Given the fact that rising medical and travel costs abroad can burn a hole in the pocket, this insurance policy is not just pocket friendly, but it can also be purchased at one-third the cost online than the insurance plans offered abroad by the universities.
This online travel insurance policy is also accepted by most of the universities abroad as a substitute to the existing insurance plan offered by the university. This plan can provide cover on listed medical and non-medical services. Through this plan you are eligible to get cover even in times or situations that interrupt studies.
To enroll for the Overseas Student Insurance, one can visit ICICI Lombard's website (www.icicilombard.com) to chooseÂ a suitable plan and immediately buy or renew the policy online. An individual can also chat with the customer service team or make a call on the toll free helpline, 1800-2666 for further support.
