Adding deductibles lower the price of your Super Visa Insurance but you have to pay in advance. We suggest not to exceed deductible over $1,000 as it involves significant risks.

In some situation, the company might subject you to a waiting period of 24 hours to 8 days. Hence, it is advised to apply for insurance coverage before arrival.
