So far so good

published

So far I have purchased the policy. A very easy process online, I needed to amend the dates and again exceptionally easy to do. Comparative price and coverage while not the cheapest seemed to offer very good cover for the money.

Perfect cover for what I need

published

Good value for money, we didn't need comprehensive insurance just to make sure we got hospital and medical cover as we are staying with someone while in Singapore and not needing accommodation insurance, and our airfare has cancellation insurance anyway.

Travel Insurance - Domestic Plus

Hi, would you please clarify if your policy covers this scenario:
If flight is cancelled or delayed by airlines that causes missing a pre-paid 12-day guided tour, would I be covered for all flights plus tour costs?
Thank you in advance
