Student Travel Insurance With COVID-19 Covered*
Follow Your Dreams, Safely!
Every year, thousands of young Indians decide to leave the nest while pursuing their education. You might want to travel to America, Germany or the UK to follow your passion and get the education you want. But, studying abroad can be expensive. Apart from your tuition fee and cost of living, it’s entirely possible that a sickness or unpredictable situation ends up burning a massive hole in your pocket. To keep you and your family’s finances safe, it’s always best to get student travel insurance before heading off to broaden your mind.
TATA AIG’s student travel insurance plan has been built keeping the unique needs of every student in mind. Apart from providing cover against lost baggage and medical emergencies, like other travel insurance policies, your student travel insurance plan will also reimburse you if you’re forced to interrupt your studies due to a medical emergency. What’s more, our plans can be customised so you only pay for the days when you’re out of India instead of for the whole year.
Offering safety, security and care-free travel, a student travel insurance policy is a must-have in every Indian student’s carry-on!
*Tata AIG offers coverage for medical expenses related to COVID – 19 when the insured is outside India. Policy T&C apply

When Is Student Travel Insurance Required?
Deciding to go abroad to further your education is not an easy decision to make. As a student, you’ll likely be travelling and living alone in a foreign country for the first time in your life. You may not have any family or support where you’re heading. As a parent, letting your child leave the nest and move to a foreign country is a scary thought. You won’t be there to help take care of them and any number of things could go wrong. This is precisely why student travel insurance is a must. Let’s take a look at a few instances in which a good overseas student travel insurance policy will come in handy:
Depending on where you’re headed, you may have to purchase a travel insurance policy to get the requisite visa and confirm your seat in your chosen college. Several educational institutions today require students to have student travel insurance so that they’re safeguarded from all kinds of issues in the future.
In Medical Emergencies
Getting quality medical treatment in a foreign country could lead to hefty medical bills. Often, students may not be able to get the healthcare they need without a good insurance policy. This is why student travel insurance is so crucial. It will help you get the quality treatment you need in case of an emergency. The policy will look after the cost, leaving you free to focus on your health.
When You Need Family
Some medical issues are more serious than others. If you’re sick or injured and hospitalised for over a week, we’re sure you don’t want to weather that storm alone. With a student travel insurance plan, you won’t have to. The policy will ensure that a family member can come and be with you until you’re discharged. The reverse is also true. If a family member is hospitalised for a long time and you need to be with them, your student travel insurance policy will pay for you to go home.
When Your Studies Are Interrupted
We may not want to think about it, but it’s entirely possible that a critical or terminal illness may need you to be hospitalised for over a month. In more severe cases, you may have to suspend your course entirely. Since you pay the fee for the entire semester in advance, you could end up losing money while dealing with a difficult time. When you have a student travel insurance plan, you won’t have to worry about losing out on the fees you’ve paid. We’ll reimburse you for the fee you’ve paid in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is evacuation and repatriation coverage?
Evacuation and repatriation coverage is helpful in times of medical and fatal emergencies. Under this cover, our international student travel insurance policy will help take care of the cost of using medically-equipped flights to transport the injured individual or repatriate the mortal remains of the insured back to India.
