It’s been 2 years since Covid-19 first hit us. But with the relaxation of SOPs in most countries including Malaysia, we can now travel both internationally and domestically for fully vaccinated individuals. With that, it’s more important than ever to get covered with travel insurance.

“What happens if I skip getting travel insurance?”
1. You may be unprepared for uncertainties.

Today, travelling the world is more complex and riskier with Covid-19. You’ll need one that could protect you with better coverage!

Now if you don’t settle your bills, you could be stuck there for a longer period of time until everything is paid in full. That’s right, you can’t leave the country!
With travel insurance, you’d get peace of mind with protection against:

Picture this, you’ve already spent thousands of ringgit preparing for your vacation and suddenly an unfortunate event happens - you’re hospitalized; lost or stolen belongings; natural disasters and more - you will have to fork out your own money! Even if you do use your credit card, you’re still paying for it, instead of leveraging off your insurance. In comparison, your premium would have cost lesser, with greater compensation!
