Find the details of Pathao Insurance to riders and customers in Nepal below.
Being a ride-sharing app, Pathao has also been providing service as food delivery platform alongside on-demand transportation. Previously, there had been no provision of any security for both riders and customers in case of death or physical disability from the company’s side.
After the implementation of this agreement, the riders and customers will receive insurance of Rs. 5,00,000 in the case of death or any physical disability due to an accident during the ride.
Why was Pathao Insurance service important?
Previously, there was no provision of any sort of security for both Pathao riders and customers in case of an accident or loss. Now that scenario is gone. The rider and customers would solely be responsible to cover the treatment cost in case of any accident/damage. Also, the family of riders and customers would be deprived of the compensation in case of death of the individuals.
As well all know the fact that medical charges cost a lot and still many people are being deprived of quality medical service due to lack of enough money. In such a scenario, insurance plays a huge role to cover those costs. That’s the reason why insurance was one of the most awaited services for both Pathao riders and service users.
What does Pathao Insurance cover?
Pathao Insurance covers Rs.5,00,000 in the case of death or any physical disability due to an accident. Similarly, they can also receive an amount up to Rs.100,000 for medical treatment in case of an accident during the Pathao ride.
The concerned one should claim their insurance within 30 days of the accident. He/She should present all the necessary documents as required per the insurance company’s rules. Any customers/riders could benefit from this service.
