Spicejet is offering insurance cover for Covid-19 hospitalisation which can be availed by its passengers. The low-cost carrier has partnered with Go Digit General Insurance for this initiative.

Travellers can opt for the insurance cover ranging between ₹50,000 and ₹ 300,000 at a premium starting from ₹443 to ₹1,564 a year (including GST).

The insurance covers hospital spendings and all pre- and post-hospitalisation expenses for 30 and 60 days respectively. Hospitals (private, government, army), tests, medication and consultations upon testing positive for Covid-19 are covered. There is no limit on ICU charges or room rent until the insured sum lasts.

The policy will be valid for a period of one year from the date of issuance.

The insured can make a cashless or a reimbursement claim. Under cashless, the amount is settled with the hospital or the provider directly whereas, in case of a reimbursement claim, the amount is transferred to the customer’s bank account.

Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, Spicejet said, “The insurance cover is not only affordable but is also valid for a one-year period. I would also reiterate the fact that air travel was and remains the safest mode of public transport and we have not seen a single case of transmission of coronavirus on a Spicejet flight.”
