Secure Your Trip to Dubai with the Right Travel Cover

Home to 200 nationalities apart from the native citizens, the United Arab Emirates (the UAE) has one of the highest populations of immigrants in the world. A significant part of the people travelling to Dubai comprises Indian nationals. Visiting the land of skyscrapers, human-made islands, luxurious hotels, and shopping malls is full of thrills. Dubai has a lot to offer, and you will enjoy every bit of your stay in this city. Although it's a city with a big heart,  high medical costs can be a concern.

An emergency, be it medical or non-medical, can knock on your door at any time while travelling. Thus, it's always good to keep yourself secured with Dubai travel insurance from any mishap that you may face. Medical treatment is not at all free in Dubai. You have to pay heavy bills if you ever need to be hospitalised for a medical emergency during your travel.

Is It Mandatory to Get Travel Insurance while Travelling to Dubai?

Dubai travel insurance is mandatory for Indians as well as other foreign citizens. It provides you with much-needed  coverage in case of unexpected medical and non-medical emergencies. You can buy dedicated COVID-19 insurance or a comprehensive travel cover to ensure financial and healthcare security during your trip. Also, many countries have tightened their travel regulations—mandating travel cover for all foreign visitors post-COVID. As a result, it is wise to take travel insurance ahead of time to avoid last-minute cancellations under the country's travel regulations.

  • Nature of the Trip: Frequent fliers should go for annual plans; others should go for a single trip insurance plan.

  • Trip Duration: The premium will depend  on the number of days you stay  in Dubai. The shorter the trip, the lower the premium.

  • Medical History: If you have any serious ailment, ensure that the policy covers it.

  • Check the Coverage: Take a close look at the inclusions to know what is covered in the Policy. The overseas Dubai travel insurance plan offers maximum benefits at  an affordable premium.
