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.
