Choose Qatar Airways travel insurance, be covered and travel with peace of mind
Air transport is one of the most comfortable and safe modes of transportation. However, this does not exclude the occurrence of various emergency situations during the flight. These include flight delays or cancellations, damage to baggage, illnesses, injuries and even a plane crash. The latter case is extremely unlikely, but it must be anticipated.
Travel Guard, the travel insurance product provided by Qatar Airways, is intended to partially offset the negative consequences of such situations. This service is provided under an agreement with an insurance company or a specialized insurance broker. It provides for the collection by the insured of a pecuniary indemnity in the event of an insured event. The list of these cases must be specified in the contract.

To do this, you must submit the necessary documents, as well as indicate the time of the delay and its reasons.

Usually, the cost of insurance against an accident during the flight is included in the price of the flight. However, the fees paid by air carriers are low, so it is advisable to take out an additional policy.
The insurance company pays substantial financial compensation in the event of a plane crash, terrorist attack and other accidents on board. In the event of injury or disability of the insured person, the amount of benefits is calculated according to the degree of damage to health. In the event of a fatal outcome, the insurance indemnities are received in full by the relatives of the insured.

A business aviation customer can transport valuables, including very expensive ones, by air. To be compensated in the event of a claim or damage, you must:
