Singapore travel insurance FAQs

I heard medical costs are expensive in Singapore, am I covered for these?

If you get a sudden injury or illness your policy covers you for the cost of medical care.

I plan on riding a moped/scooter during my trip. Am I covered?

There is no additional 'extra' that you need to pay to include cover for riding a moped or scooter at time of purchasing your TID policy. It is automatically included in the standard cover. Just keep in mind, you will need to have a valid licence that allows you ride to the same class of vehicle back in Australia. More details can be found here.

I'm already overseas, can I still purchase travel insurance?

Yes, you can. Unlike other insurers, TID allows you to purchase a policy even if you have started your trip. There is a 72 hour waiting period before your cover begins if you purchase your policy once you have left your home in Australia.
