Is It Worth Buying Travel Insurance With COVID-19 Coverage?

Yes!

While the world has begun to open up for travel, COVID-19 is still very real.

Some insurance companies have included COVID-19 coverage in all their plans, while others have it as an add-on.

How Much Should I Be Covered For?

Unfortunately, there’s no magic number here, and the amount of coverage needed really depends on you.

For example, if you’re packing light for a short three-day stay in Thailand, you’ll probably only have a few sets of clothes and the bare essentials.

Would you need to be covered for S$7,000 worth in the case of lost baggage? Probably not…unless you happen to have a luxury Chanel bag in your suitcase.

Like other insurances, a general rule of thumb is to set out what you need in your travel insurance and then look for the most coverage for the lowest cost.

What Coverage Should I Look Out for in COVID-19 Travel?

Aside from the basic coverages that you should look out for, travelling post-pandemic means that you should have a contingency if you or your travel buddies get infected with COVID-19.

Trip Cancellation Coverage

Plans change.

Maybe you’ve encountered something urgent at work, or you’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19 just before your trip.

“What about the air tickets which I already paid for?”

This is where trip cancellation coverage comes in, and you will be given a sum of money should you have to cancel your trip!

Personal Accident Coverage

Source: Tenor

You’re out to have fun while you’re overseas, so party away!

But while you’re out there enjoying, mishaps may happen, and you could get injured during a snowboarding session, for instance.

To help you rest assured, personal accident coverage will kick in to cover your expenses as you recuperate.

Loss/Damage of Baggage Coverage

Source: Gfycat

It’s just so inconvenient when important things get lost, but it’s not like we can constantly keep an eye out on all our belongings.

You wouldn’t want to drag your heavy suitcase with you on the flight, now would you?

But what happens when your baggage gets lost in transit? You’ll definitely need to get replacements quickly or at least buy some new clothing to replace your lost ones.

Travel insurance will help minimise some of the inconveniences by giving you a sum of money to help replace the things which you have lost!
