Bollywood Performer Tour Travel Insurance
Many Bollywood performers such as film stars and playback singers tour internationally from India to perform in concerts or shows for their fans all over the world. These performers typically travel with extensive staff that includes backing musicians and dancers, sound and lighting technicians, managers, drivers, personal assistants, and more. A touring Bollywood performance can easily employ upwards of 100 people.
As members of a Bollywood touring production travel to many different countries, it is essential that they have appropriate travel medical insurance.
When traveling outside your home country on a Bollywood tour, your domestic health insurance is unlikely to provide sufficient coverage, if it is even accepted at all. This means that if you get sick or injured during the tour while in a foreign country, you would be required to pay for treatment out of your own pocket. In countries like the United States where healthcare is extremely expensive, this bill could be exceedingly large.
When traveling to the USA to perform on a Bollywood tour, it is highly recommended to get USA visitors insurance. This is short-term travel health insurance that can provide coverage for new, unexpected medical conditions that occur after the effective date of the policy. If your Bollywood tour is taking you to a location outside the United States, consider investing in travel medical insurance.
Travel medical insurance can be purchased for a variety of durations, from as few as five days, and up to one year. Certain plans can renew up to two or three years, and are typically extendable to suit your touring needs.
Group Travel Medical Insurance
As most Bollywood touring productions consist of many individuals, it may make sense for you as a tour manager to purchase group travel medical insurance. With group travel medical insurance, you do not have to worry about each separate member of the tour securing their own insurance, and you can usually save 10% off the cost of purchasing individual travel medical insurance policies for each touring member.
Group travel medical insurance is available for groups of five or more persons traveling together. However, each member of the group will receive a separate insurance card.
Multi Trip Travel Insurance for Bollywood Performers
As part of a touring Bollywood production, you may need to travel multiple times each year. If this is the case, multi trip travel insurance can be an excellent option. It provides you with coverage for any number of trips for a period of one year after the departure date of your first trip, so long as the trip does not exceed the maximum duration allowed by the insurance plan.
With multi trip travel insurance, you do not have to worry about purchasing insurance separately for each trip. This way, if a sudden engagement comes up, you can travel with confidence, knowing that you already have coverage.
Shooting and Vacation Trips
Many Bollywood movies are shot in foreign locations such as Switzerland, the USA and many other countries. Film stars, directors, camera operators, and a lot of support staff need to travel to foreign countries. The trip may be a few days, weeks or months. Travel medical insurance can provide important coverage in case of any of the travelers were to get sick or injured while on the trip.
Some Bollywood stars simply go to foreign countries for vacations, be it Maldives, Europe, USA, Dubai or Singapore. No matter what their travel destination is, it is very important to purchase appropriate travel medical insurance to be covered.
Some Bollywood stars or their organizers may think that these people are rich and can just afford to pay out of pocket for any sickness or injuries and therefore, there is no need to purchase travel medical insurance. That is absolutely not the case. When you get sick or injured in a foreign country, simply having money may not be enough to solve all the problems. There are also considerations to organize treatment or emergency medical evacuation; or in the worst case, the repatriation of mortal remains. Travel insurance companies have the knowledge and expertise to make the arrangements that can be challenging even for wealthy people to handle in case of an emergency.
As a part of a touring Bollywood production, it is critical that you look after your health so you can be at your best each night. It is just as important that support staff for Bollywood productions be able to get necessary medical care so they can continue supporting the tour again as soon as possible. By purchasing the right travel medical insurance or visitors insurance for your Bollywood tour, you can ensure that you’ll go into each performance with additional peace of mind.
