Travel Insurance Purchasing Guide - Which policy suits me best?
There are different types of travel insurance policies available at Bimafy and you can select the best-suited plan for you from the available plans. Usually, travel insurance plans are categorized based on the purpose of travel such as holiday, business, study, employment, etc. You should also check your visa/travel requirements so that you can get the right insurance policy before your visa application/departure.
If you are going to a Schengen state then your travel insurance policy must provide at least €30,000 in coverage against illnesses and accidents. Some countries require travel insurance to enter but do not specify any minimum coverage amount. However, all of the travel insurance plans available at Bimafy provide at least US$50,000 (€30,000 for Schengen Countries) coverage and are accepted almost everywhere in the world.
If you are a casual traveller, then a Business & Holiday plan would be the most suitable one for you. But, if you are a frequent traveller and go abroad multiple times in a calendar year then a Frequent Traveling plan can be the best option as it provides coverage for multiple trips (up to 30 days per trip) within the policy validity period of one year.
For study purposes, you may need to get a travel insurance policy before your visa application or departure. Travel insurance for Study is the right choice for you if you are going abroad with a student visa. This plan provides coverage for up to one year in a single policy and provides coverage up to US$75,000.
If you are going abroad for employment purposes then the Employment plan would be the most suited one as this policy provides coverage of up to US$75,000 for up to one year in a single policy.
