Have Mobile Connection? Get Free Insurance!

By Hemanth | October 7, 2015


Mobile phones are proving to be the Swiss army knife of gadgets.

First came banking services. Followed by mobile payments.

Now, you get free life insurance.

Telenor is one of the first cellular service providers to launch a free insurance scheme for its new and existing customers.

Although the cover is meagre, still, it is a start. This follows in the footsteps of insurance channels like bancassurance and mallassurance.

According to an Economic Times report on the Telenor launch, “Existing customers begin their cover from the next month from the time they opt in. New customers automatically get a cover of Rs 10,000 for two months and subsequently they have to opt in to continue the service. Customers have to maintain a nominal minimum amount every month for keeping the insurance cover valid and can increase it by increasing the recharge they do every month.

As always, be sure to compare online the insurance premiums across providers to see if bundled offers like these give you the best premiums and coverage.
