Hyderabad: Regulatory body Irdai on Wednesday issued guidelines for insurers for a standard domestic travel cover — Bharat Yatra Suraksha — which will be launched on July 1.

When offered as a family cover, the chosen sum insured will apply to each family member separately, the insurance regulator’s guidelines stated. There is no co-payment or initial waiting period under this policy, which will a base cover as well as optional cover.

The base cover will include hospitalisation expenses due to accident, death due to accident, permanent total disability, permanent partial disability and repatriation of mortal remains.

The optional cover will include missed flight connections, loss of checked-in baggage and trip delays beyond three hours. The policy will not cover any claim for death or disablement, hospitalisation of the insured person directly or indirectly due to war, acts of foreign enemies or revolutions, among others.

It also won’t cover any claim for death, disablement or hospitalisation in case of suicide or while engaging in aviation or ballooning, other than as a passenger in any scheduled airlines in the world.
