When you're taking up a travel insurance policy, always:
Shop around to find the policy that best fits your requirements.
Check with your insurance company what personal effects can be covered under travel insurance, as it differs between insurance companies.
Ensure that your insurance company has a good network of foreign affiliates which can provide you with assistance when you need it.
Check whether your insurance company provides 24-hour emergency hotline service. This is important should anything go wrong while you are overseas and need help.
Read the policy exclusions carefully, to know what can prevent you from claiming from your policy.
Even though you’re covered by travel insurance, you must also do all you can to try and protect, save and recover your belongings that are lost or damaged. You should also contact the travel policy’s medical and emergency assistance hotline if you need immediate help, notify the authorities in charge of the area and notify the insurance company as soon as possible.
While most travel insurance offer similar benefits, the scope of coverage and scale of benefits varies between insurance companies.
