Travel Insurance: DirectAsia

What’s covered?

Typically, you would expect travel insurance to cover medical and travel related expenses. DirectAsia’s travel insurance covers medical expenses, emergency evacuation, travel delays or cancellations, extreme sports and activities (as an optional benefit), theft of or damage to personal belongings, rental car excess and more.

The coverage also extends to emergency medical evacuation, should you need it – after considering relevant facts and the severity of the condition. Lost or damaged your SLR camera? They will also pay for loss or damage to luggage, valuables and personal items such as a laptop, mobile phone or your precious SLR that stocks all your holiday photos.

Offbeat travel to Myanmar and Laos

DirectAsia’s travel plans cover different zones – worldwide or just Asia. Within Asia you are covered across Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India. Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. So, if the lakes and rural plains of Myanmar beckon – there’s no reason to hold back!

Asking the right questions

Before buying any travel plan make sure you ask questions pertaining to your family’s lifestyle and travel frequency. There’s no point buying the cheapest coverage on the market when the plan doesn’t cover specific needs of your family. For instance, if you enjoy adventure sports like scuba diving, buy a plan that covers you for that specific activity. Similarly, if you travel frequently, it makes more sense (economically too!) to buy an annual plan so you don’t have to worry about travel insurance before each trip. DirectAsia recommends buying your insurance early once you’ve secured your flights and accommodation, as the policy covers against trip cancellation (within 30 days before the start of the trip) due to unforeseen circumstances such as natural disaster or adverse weather conditions, serious injury or sickness.

With annual coverage premiums starting as low as $329 per year for a family of four (Asia-only), DirectAsia’s travel plans are affordable too, mama. And signing up is super easy too!
