Frequent Asked Questions

Do you get travel insurance with your credit card?

Many credit cards provide some level of travel insurance coverage if you charge your full fares to them. Usually the best cards that provide travel insurance are air mile cards, such as Citi PremierMiles Visa, DBS Altitude, UOB PRVI Miles and AMEX KrisFlyer. There are two cashback cards in Singapore that provide travel insurance too: OCBC 365 and CIMB Visa Signature Credit Card.

Does travel insurance cover me if I cancel my flight?

It depends on your policy. Look under the section "trip cancellation" to see if your travel insurance compensates when you cancel your flight. You will need to show proof of a valid cancellation reason: sickness, injury, death of either you, your family member, or travelling companion.

Does my credit card's complimentary travel insurance cover discounted flights?

Usually yes, on the condition that you charge your full fares to the card.
