Travel Insurance for Singapore

Before you go on your trip, consider travel insurance cover.

Why should I consider travel insurance in Singapore?

The Lion City, as Singapore is affectionately known, boasts a rich history and strikes a balance between the modern and the ancient, which makes it one of Asia’s most popular cities for tourists. But, as enticing as its hawker centres, botanic gardens and its steep culture is, even the most organised traveller can have their plans scuttled. Flights may be delayed or cancelled, luggage stolen or lost, and noodle mishaps could leave you a steaming mess. The good news is, the team at Travel Insurance Direct is here to assist with cover available for your next trip to Singapore.

Singapore travel insurance FAQs

I heard medical costs are expensive in Singapore, am I covered for these under my TID policy?

If you get a sudden injury or illness your policy may cover you for the cost of medical care while in Asia. The Emergency Assistance Team is available to assist you 24/7, so if you experience a bout of food poisoning at a local market or come off second best at Wet’n’Wild and you’re unclear about what your policy provides for, be sure to call ASAP.

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 allowed for under the standard cover but, just keep in mind, you will need to have a valid licence that allows you ride to the same class of vehicle back in your country of residence and at your destination. More details can be found here and you should always refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for policy explanations.

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

Yes, you can. 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.
