What is Travel insurance

Reliance Travel health insurance

Travel insurance coverage is usually limited to the period of your travel. However, some insurance companies may offer various combinations of protection to cater to the specific needs of customers, including long-term annual policies for a frequent traveler. Travel insurance can be purchased for you and/or your family to insure against travel-related accidents, losses or interruptions, such as:

(a) Personal accident

(b) Medical-related expenses

(c) Loss of travel or accommodation expenses due to cancellation or curtailment of the journey

(d) Losing your passport

(e) personal liability

(f) delayed baggage

(g) travel delays

(h) Hijacking

Home insurance, also commonly called hazard insurance or homeowner’s insurance (often abbreviated in the real estate industry as HOI), is a type of property insurance that covers a private residence, such as a condominium or renters’ insurance home or multiple unit buildings (duplex, triplex or quadplex so long as the owner lives in one of the units). It is an insurance policy that combines various personal insurance protections, which can include losses occurring one’s home, its contents, loss of use (additional living expenses), or loss of other personal possessions of the homeowner, as well as liability insurance for accidents that may happen at the home or at the hands of the homeowner within the policy territory. If a home does not meet the underwriting guidelines of a standard homeowners policy (such as more than 15-20 year old shingled roof, 20-30 year old heating system, no central heating, etc) the residence could quality for a limited coverage dwelling policy (DP).

Homeowner’s policy is referred to as a multiple-line insurance policy, meaning that it includes both property insurance and liability coverage, with an indivisible premium, meaning that a single premium is paid for all risks. Standard forms divide coverage into several categories, and the coverage provided is typically a percentage of Coverage A, which is coverage for the main dwelling

The cost of homeowner’s insurance often depends on what it would cost to replace the house and which additional endorsements or riders e attached to the policy. The insurance policy is a legal contract between the insurance carrier (insurance company) and the named insured(s). It is a contact of indemnity and will put the insured back to the state he/she was in prior to the loss. Typically, claims due to floods or war (whose definition typically includes nuclear explosion from any source), amongst other standard exclusions (like termites), are excluded. Special insurance can be purchased for these possibilities, including flood insurance. Insurance should be adjusted to reflect replacement cost, usually upon application of an inflation factor or a cost index.

The home insurance policy is usually a term contract-a contract that is in effect for a fixed period of time. The payment the insured makes to the insurer is called the premium. The insured must pay the insurer the premium each term. Most insurers charge lower premium if it appears less likely the home will be damaged or destroyed: for example, if the house is situated next to a fire station or is equipped with fire sprinklers and fire alarms; if the house exhibits wind mitigation measures, such as hurricane shutters; or if the house has a security system and has insurer-approved locks installed. Perpetual insurance, a type of home insurance without a fixed term, can also be obtained in certain areas.
