Whether you are traveling outside of your home country for a business trip with colleagues or a leisure trip with friends or family, if you have 5 people or more in your group, it is recommended that you consider purchasing a group travel insurance policy to cover everyone in your party in order to protect against the unexpected. Group policies are not only convenient and easy to manage, but they also come at a cheaper rate as they often offer better pricing, making the process of getting everyone insured hassle free, while also giving you overall peace of mind.
The Advantages of Group Travel Insurance Policies Are:
- Cheaper Rates: The most significant advantage of travel insurance through a group policy is that it costs less than purchasing individual policies for each member of the group. The group plans may offer the same coverage amounts & benefits but can be cheaper by about 10-20% or more depending on various factors.
- Easy Administration: For one group of travelers, you would need to fill out one form rather than filling them out individually. One master policy is provided with individual ID cards for each traveler.
Requirements of a Group Travel Insurance, or Group Trip Insurance Policy :
- Number of People:Number of insured should be 5 or more
- Duration of Travel:Everyone in the group should have the same start date & end date for the policy.
- Insurability of Each Member:All the members in the group should meet the basic eligibility criteria for the particular travel insurance policy being purchased.
Group health insurance plans can be beneficial to families with more than five members, student groups, missionaries, business travelers and sports teams who are traveling outside of their home country. These group travel insurance policies can also be customized as per the needs of the individual travel group.
