Annual Travel vs Single Trip insurance – Which Is Better?

Annual Travel vs Single Trip insurance – Which Is Better?

January 27, 2016 Travel 0 Comments

Chinese New Year, March School Holidays, Easter. The holidays roll around and it’s time to leave your daily routine for something new. From a day shopping in JB, to the beaches of Bintan or the trip of a lifetime, adventure is just around the corner.

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it.” Mark Jenkins

Mark Jenkins is the author of three award-winning books: The Hard WayTo Timbuktu and Off the Map. You probably won’t find Mark Jenkins shopping in JB.  He likes the trip of a lifetime approach. Like the U.S. Everest North Face Expedition (1986), the first coast-to-coast crossing of the former Soviet Union by bicycle (1989), and the first descent of the Niger River headwaters in West Africa. You can bet he has Annual Trip insurance.

How To Decide

What about you? Why would you buy annual travel insurance when single trip cover starts from only $19? The answer is simple. It depends on how you travel.

If you only ever take one or two trips out of Singapore a year, Single trip insurance is usually cheaper.  But, if you will travel more than 3 times a year, our annual travel insurance plan was made for you. Buying an annual travel plan saves you time as you only buy once to cover a full year of travel and you also enjoy substantial savings over booking each trip individually.

Single trip plans are designed to cover only one specific trip or holiday. Since you’re buying your travel insurance directly you’ll still save more over buying from an agent or bank. You can also book single trip plans with friends and family for greater savings. Single trip plans are also a great choice if you’re going on a longer trip.

To work out what to do for the best, all you need to do is add up the amount of times you’ll be going away. You need to make sure you have adequate cover for medical expenses, cancellation, baggage protection as well as personal belongings.
