Single Trip Policies (for departures from Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore)

Policies issued from 22 Jan 2020 to 19 Mar 2020: These will provide coverage such as overseas medical benefits or emergency medical assistance in relation to the COVID-19 situation based on the terms and conditions of the Policy Wording and the benefits claimed.

IMPORTANT: Given the rapid rise in travel bans, please first ensure that no travel ban is in place during your dates of travel PRIOR TO purchasing a travel insurance policy. Policies purchased while a known travel ban is in place will have extremely limited insurance coverage, and we highly recommend NOT to purchase travel insurance policies when such conditions exist.
