  • Need advice regarding travel insurance for parents who are coming from India

    I live in Georgia.
    I am emailing you regarding the subject as I read lot of your comments on internet helping the insurance buyers in need.
    I need some advice regarding insurance for my parents who are comming from Mumbai on April 10 , 2007.
    My father's birth date is Aug 12, 1940. He is in very good health, like a 18 yr.
    My mother's birht date is Oct 10, 1949. She was detected BP lately. But nothing serious.

    I was considering the options of ICICILombard & USA Inbound.
    There are few other options like TATAAIG. I also read few comments that IMG is good when it comes to payment of the claim.
    I am confident that my parents will not suffer from any illness during their stay here. However, I am thinking about the insurance in case of eventuality (accident or emergency).
    I want to keep the cost to minimum. The insurance limit can be as low as $25000.

    Which one should I go for?

    I will appreciate a reply in next day or two, so that I can buy the insurance before 5th April.

    There are 2 types of plans:
    Fixed: Cheaper, limited.
    Comprehensive: More expensive, better coverage.
    ICICI, Tata-AIG etc. are fixed coverage plans for ages above 55. They are
    NOT comprehensive.
    It is generally better to buy insurance from US based company. Read
    Visitors Care (IMG) is a good plan. You can read more details at You can buy it online as
    Please let me know if you have any other questions.
