It can be incredibly tough to know what to look for and very tempting to go with the cheapest as many people see insurance as an extra cost they could really do without. But it’s necessary to get a Singapore travel insurance.
When looking for cheap Singapore travel insurance, we’re lucky that our country does actually have a number of reputable companies who do provide value for money instead of simply professing to be the cheapest. Staying away from companies that provide seemingly unbelievable deals is likely a great move. Additionally, it’s a good idea to stay away from insurance companies that are related to the budget airline you’ve booked with. A lot of airlines simply see insurance as an opportunity to bump up the fee you are paying to them, bringing it back in line with other airlines so it ends up not being ‘budget’ at all. In addition to this, the majority of the time the cover provided by them is often minimal. An independent company that provides insurance separately is usually a better move, but always make sure you check out what the insurance actually covers rather than simply assuming that you know already what you’ll be qualified for.
There are literally hundreds of different insurance companies that offer policies for travellers, but many of them probably won’t meet all of your personal needs and requirements. Before you begin to compare travel insurance companies, you’ll need to make a list of everything you will need. What type of airline will you be flying with? Which type of activities will you be doing at your destination? Will you be doing any potentially dangerous activities, such as scuba diving or rock climbing? Some travel insurance companies will not cover you for doing such tasks, so if you plan on doing them, make sure you check on that particular mention as you compare travel insurance firms.
