Buying Travel Insurance During the Omicron Outbreak

Be Travel-Ready: 5 Tips for Safer Trips During the Covid Recovery

 

For Singaporean residents planning to enjoy travel overseas in the coming weeks and months, the emergence of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has become a worry - not least when it comes to buying travel insurance.

However, Allianz Travel insurance products include selected Covid-19 coverage*, including Delta and Omicron variants, as well as cover for epidemics and pandemics*.

This means you'll be covered* should you or another insured person on your policy fall ill with Covid-19 Omicron, before or during your trip.

Omicron is expected to become the dominant variant globally, due to increased transmissibility. At time of writing (09/12/2021), vaccinated travellers report mild symptoms, including sore throat, tiredness and cough. However, questions remain about the threat of Omicron.

Allianz Travel Insurance Singapore policies include:

●       Selected Epidemic/Pandemic coverage including Covid-19*

●       24/7 Medical Assistance

●       Cancellation, Delay, Curtailment

●       Loss/theft/damage of valuables

●       Rental Excess cover (Silver & Platinum Plans only)

*Subject to terms and conditions and exclusions outlined in Allianz Travel Policy Wording
**Unlimited - Where used, the term ‘Unlimited’ means there is no capped dollar amount. Terms, conditions, limits, sub-limits and exclusions apply as set out in the Policy Wording. All costs and expenses claimed must be necessary and reasonable. Subject to the terms, conditions, exclusions and benefits limits of the policy wording. For more information please click on the Policy Wording to read the Allianz Travel Policy Wording.  

You can choose from Annual policies (for frequent travellers); Single-Trip policies and Family policies, depending on how you plan to travel and who you plan to travel with. You can also select different policy levels, with Comprehensive Platinum, Comprehensive Silver and Comprehensive Bronze to choose from.
