The banks ask the cardholders to conduct one of the most important terms and conditions where they have to  conduct certain transaction(s) using that specific debit card within a certain period. 

For instance, consider the case of the HDFC Bank website HDFC Bank’s Millennia debit card which comes with a free insurance cover of Rs 5 lakh for domestic Air/Rail/Road travel and Rs 1 crore for international air travel. 

Their condition is that for the insurance policy to be active on this specific card, a cardholder needs to conduct at least one transaction in the last 30 days. 

It is noteworthy here that the definition of conducting transactions in order to become eligible for free accidental insurance coverage on a debit card varies from bank to bank. 

Besides this, certain specific transactions are only eligible for free insurance cover on debit cards. 

For instance “UPI transactions are not eligible for insurance cover,” said Prashant Joshi – MD and Head – of Consumer Banking Group, DBS Bank India.

Which Transactions Type & Documents Qualifies For Free Debit Card Insurance?
