Etiqa launches Tiq Travel Insurance for pre-existing medical conditions and optional add-ons


Etiqa Insurance Singapore introduced Tiq Travel Insurance with pre-ex plans that cover pre-existing medical conditions for travellers, an essential feature that is not commonly offered with local travel insurance plans. Consumers can also enjoy the flexibility to customise their travel protection plan with add-ons such as child education cover and pet hotel cover. 
 
The coverage includes overseas medical and hospital expenses of up to S$150,000, and emergency medical evacuation and repatriation of up to S$250,000 in the event a traveller suffers any illnesses due to a pre-existing medical condition during the trip. 
 
"While awareness on travel insurance is generally higher than other life insurance products, many are unaware that most insurance companies do not cover expenses or losses that are incurred as a result of existing medical conditions during one's travel, and these costs can be substantial." said Sue Chi Kong, CEO, Etiqa Insurance Pte. Ltd., referring to a high-profile case in 2017.

Sue adds, "With increasing cases of invisible diseases amongst young people, the ageing population in Singapore, and the high cost of overseas medical treatment, there is a need for greater awareness and more relevant protection plans for Singaporeans who love to travel."
