On the early Sunday morning (20/11/2016) the Indore Patna express derailed near Kanpur and claimed 120 lives or may be more and many got injured. Many lost their loved ones and bread winners of their families. But, when I was going through the news online, I found many articles stating that out of 695 passengers who booked their tickets online through IRCTC website only 128 opted for travel insurance by IRCTC of Rs. 10 Lakhs which cost only 92 paise.
I don’t think that anyone who didn’t opt for the insurance was trying to save their 92 paise. The main reason what I think that they were unaware about the travel insurance by IRCTC or they had just overlooked to save some seconds to book the ticket quickly.
IRCTC now offer Rs. 10 Lakh accidental cover to every passenger who is booking the ticket through their website. This insurance will cost 92 paise per passenger. This facility is available online through IRCTC website.
You can very easily opt for the travel insurance offered by IRCTC by simply following these steps
You should never miss this option when booking the train ticket online for yourself or for others. This small step will be very helpful for your loved ones in any unforeseen circumstances.
