Holidays: Old Favourites or the Exciting Unknown?

Comments : 1

When it comes to holidays, it’s easy to choose a destination you’ve enjoyed before. Going to the same place as last year might be attractive because you know the beaches are good, or there are plenty of historical sites to visit. Perhaps you know a few great restaurants, and that getting around is easy.

Great Travel Destination

But what if you were missing out on some other adventures, and just needed a little push, or a little inspiration to try them? One way to get your imagination going is to visit one of the consumer travel fairs from NATAS.

Hosted twice a year in Singapore, in February/March and August/September, they are the biggest events of their kind in the city, so you can expect to find lots of travel agents – enticing you to the four corners of the world!

Sometimes it’s hard to break holiday habits, just in case something goes wrong – maybe the service won’t be as good as you’re used to, or the countryside won’t be as pretty as you want. But on the other hand, maybe it’ll blow you away! Trying somewhere new can make a trip more memorable, and give you and your family or travel companions some great moments to share when you get back – even if some of them were a little challenging at the time.

At Least Organising Your Travel Insurance is Easy

But whether you choose to return to your favourite beach on your next vacation, or whether you end up trekking in the Himalayas with your spouse and children in tow, one thing you can decide upon right now is your insurance. With DirectAsia.com, you can even get a quote and take out your cover up to 60 days before your trip begins.

You’ll get the peace of mind that if your travel operator becomes insolvent, or your trip has to be cancelled (due to illness or death), you will be able to recoup your costs. You’ll also get a host of other protection features, including medical expenses cover (inclusive of Chinese physician), luggage delay and belongings cover.

And as well as individual cover, we offer family insurance (2 adult + children; up to a maximum of 4 children), and a group policy (up to 6 persons) – saving you money which you can spend on your getaway together.

And don’t forget, because we don’t use agents, there is no commission – creating a saving of up to 40%.

And if you book early at the upcoming NATAS travel fair, you may get some discounts on the holiday itself – but you’ll have to brave the big crowds to get them!
