What are the significant features and benefits of Outbound Travel insurance?
Travel insurance can cover you for unexpected medical illness or accidents while traveling outside Qatar.
The basic covers include the cost of emergency medical treatment and repatriation expenses. For more details, please refer to your insurance policy plan.
How much travel insurance do I need?
You should choose the plan based on your travel destination, coverage preference and the requirements of your designated embassy.
Seib Insurance provides the following plans:
- Worldwide (excluding USA & Canada)
- Outbound Travel plan for Schengen requirements
For more details, please refer to your insurance policy plan.
What will be the term of my contract?
A single-trip policy covers you only for a specified holiday/ trip, whereas an annual policy covers you for multiple trips made during one year without having the hassle of getting a new policy for every trip.
Why do I need travel insurance while travelling abroad when I have already medical insurance?
An accident, illness or emergency can happen anywhere.
If you need medical care in another country, your local medical insurance may pay only a portion of the costs. Travel insurance which includes medical cover can pay for the eligible emergency medical expenses that may not be covered in your medical plan.
This plan also covers other benefits on top of medical expenses. Please refer to your policy terms and conditions.
When should I buy travel insurance?
It is advisable to purchase a travel insurance straight after you’ve paid the first deposit for your trip. The earlier you purchase, the sooner you have coverage to protect your trip.
Does travel insurance cover terrorism?
Our basic plan does not provide terrorism cover.
However, it can be purchased as an add-on to our worldwide plan.

Whilst this is not covered under a standard plan, you have an option to purchase it as add-on cover for an additional premium, subject to policy terms and conditions.
