Kolkata, Aug 13 (UNI) OYO Hotels & Homes has announced a first-of-its-kind offering for its customers with complimentary insurance cover for guests as part of the booking price staying in OYO properties across India.

To begin with, OYO will be offering guests staying at OYO Hotels, OYO Home, OYO Townhouse, Collection O, SilverKey, Capital O and Palette Resorts this insurance, valid for their full period of stay in these properties. The insurance cover will be applicable to bookings made via the OYO App, website, mobile website, direct bookings as well as walk-ins.
