Sompo: Best For Trips to Japan

Sompo Travel Insurance helps protect against the unexpected common mishaps such as lost passport, accidents and baggage delay that can cause anxiety on a trip. Having reconstructive surgery, recuperation allowance, golf cover, rental vehicle excess and many more as bonus coverage instead of an add-on makes the plan more attractive.

Baggage delay is up to $1,000 (capped at $200 for first six hours both overseas and in Singapore; and $125 per four hours whilst overseas thereafter). Plans even cover amateur sports such as hot air balloon, parasailing, white-water rafting, snow-skiing, and bungee jumping.

  • Full Terrorism Cover (except for Vital Plan)
  • Covers Loss of Frequent Flyer Points
