At a time when the telecom sector is getting highly competitive, Airtel has come with a unique plan that offers you not only services like SMS, calls, and internet but the security of a life insurance.
Airtel in collaboration with Bharti AXA Life Insurance has come with a recharge plan that offers the bundled insurance benefit to consumers along with other telecom services. The services are offered as a part of Rs 179 prepaid recharge. Rs. 2 lakh term life insurance from Bharti AXA Life would be provided to all the customers recharging with the Rs. 179 prepaid plan and are between 18 to 54 years of age.
The prepaid recharge plan brings unlimited voice calling alongside 2GB high-speed data and 300 SMS messages for 28 days. Other benefits in the pack includes access to Wynk Music and Airtel Xstream App Premium with the ability to watch content from platforms such as Hooq, Zee5 as well as more than 370 live TV channels and over 10,000 movies.
As per Airtel, the plan is targeted at entry-level smartphone users and feature phone users in semi-urban and rural markets. One can easily accomplish the insurance process digitally at any Airtel retail store or through the Airtel Thanks app.
However, this is not the first time Airtel has rolled out a plan with insurance cover. Earlier this month, the operator brought the Rs. 279 prepaid plan with Rs. 4 lakh insurance cover from HDFC Life. That plan also included access to a four-week course from Shaw Academy.
In May last year, Airtel launched the Rs. 129 and Rs. 249 prepaid plans with Rs. 4 lakh life insurance cover from Bharti AXA and HDFC Life. It expanded the trend by offering an identical life insurance coverage with the Rs. 599 prepaid plan in September last year.
The operator, however, recently discarded the earlier plans and brought the Rs. 279 prepaid plan as the fresh option to offer bundle insurance cover.
