NTUC Income Travel Insurance

NTUC Income Includes Coverage for COVID-19 for Overseas Travel

NTUC Income will now include COVID-19 coverage for medical-related expenses in its Single Trip Travel Insurance Plans while overseas. These benefits are automatically included in single trip plans purchased from 26 November 2020 and for travel dates starting from today.

This move is in response to the gradual lifting of border restrictions in Singapore and other parts of the world.

This enhancement will protect travellers who purchase Income’s single trip travel insurance for 90 days for COVID-19 related hospitalisation expenses of up to US$100,000 while overseas. There is also cover for costs incurred for medical evacuation or repatriation of up to US$100,000 when it is needed.

However, these COVID-19 benefits will be excluded from travel insurance for trips to countries that the World Health Organisation deems as high-risk for COVID at the point of purchase.

Policyholders with existing annual travel insurance plans from INCOME should contact Income to find out about getting covered for upcoming travel.
