Meet Priya, who was exploring the beautiful sights of Portugal when she unfortunately suffered an injury. She needed immediate medical attention and got admitted to a hospital.

Thankfully, Priya had purchased travel insurance from Acko, which provided her with a cashless facility. This meant she didn't have to worry about arranging funds for her treatment upfront. Acko took care of all the medical bills directly, allowing Priya to focus on her recovery without any financial stress.

"Having Acko's travel insurance was a lifesaver," says Priya. "Their cashless facility made it so much easier for me to get the medical care I needed without worrying about the expenses. I'm truly grateful for their support!"
