When it comes to medical coverage, the competitively priced Allianz Travel Insurance is a cut above the rest. Make claims for COVID-19 trip cancellations, loss of deposits, and more.

Allianz Travel Insurance starts from S$28 and comes in Bronze, Silver, and Platinum plans. These are ideal for travellers looking for high medical coverage and ease of mind.

It is a valuable buy especially if you are travelling to areas where medical treatment costs an arm and a leg. Plus, it offers COVID-19 protection.

Summary of product

Emergency medical evacuation

All three plans (Bronze, Silver and Platinum) come with unlimited emergency evacuation coverage, and this coverage sum applies to individuals aged 69 years and below.

COVID-19 coverage

Regardless of which plan you choose, Allianz Travel Insurance covers you against medical costs, trip cancellations and curtailments due to COVID-19 when you or a travel companion is diagnosed with the disease. 

Opting for the Platinum plan will give you up to S$1 million coverage for emergency medical and dental expenses from COVID-19, while any travel cancellations or disruptions will entitle you to the same claim amount of S$15,000. 

With the Bronze plan, you’ll get up to S$200,000 coverage for emergency medical and dental expenses, and up to S$5,000 for  travel cancellation coverage. For the Silver plan, the medical and dental expenses coverage is up to S$500,000. Additionally, you may get up to S$10,000 for travel cancellations or disruptions. These terms apply for individuals aged 69 years and below only.

Some drawbacks you should be aware of? Allianz Travel Insurance doesn’t offer hospitalisation or quarantine allowance.

Pricing

We will look at the pricing comparison across various plans (basic/ mid-tier/ top shelf) for both Single Trip and Annual Trip. Allianz does not offer a Bronze Plan for annual trips to the ASEAN region.

The insurer's plans are much pricier as all of them now include cruise coverage and protection against pandemics and epidemics, including COVID-19.
