Delayed Departure
Pays for additional administrative and travel expenses incurred to book alternative transport to the same destination should there be delays to the public transport due to strike, riot, civil commotion, poor weather conditions, natural disasters, breakdown of public transport or closure of the airport. 

Standard Plan is a free package for individuals who are budget conscious or who already have other personal insurance. However, the Standard Plan excludes some benefits:

  • Maternity Medical Expenses Overseas
  • Overseas ICU Hospitalization Daily Benefit
  • Wedding Clothing and Accessories
  • Fraudulent Use of Credit Card
  • Credit Card Outstanding Balance
  • Legal Expenses for Wrongful Arrest or Detention, etc.

Elite and Premier Plan caters to travelers who want a wider range and those who travel for specific purposes such as a bridal shoot or sporting activities.

TraveEasy Pre-Ex Plan is tailored to the unique needs of travelers with pre-existing conditions. It also offers pre-existing coverage of medical conditions for competitive premiums and is stocked with various peace benefits that individual travelers may find.

Leisure Activities and Covered

The important thing to note is that the cheapest Standard Plan is limited in scope if you are planning anything other than a normal city flight. It does not cover most outdoor activities.

The higher-tier plans cover a whole slew of outdoor activities, including those commonly listed here:

Although MSIG’s listed prices of travel insurance plans may seem daunting at first glance, there is usually a promotion to keep their prices competitive, such as the current 50% discount on travel plans is now 60% discounts for Pre-existing medical conditions cover and regular MSIG’s plans and 20% off Annual plans. This offer ends on August 16, 2019.

As long as the continuation is 60%, I would say it’s worth buying travel insurance from MSIG. Price is competitive against different travel insurance plans here in Singapore.
