Purchases directly on MoneySmart
For certain products that have the payment to be hosted on MoneySmart, users can pay directly to MoneySmart to purchase the product. MoneySmart will inform the Providers so that the Providers can fulfill the purchase, for example, Providers generate a travel insurance policy and send it to users’ email addresses. MoneySmart reserves the right to have this payment step hosted either on MoneySmart or Providers’ site and can change without prior notice.
Policy for cancellation/refund of purchases on MoneySmart:
The cases below are applicable for purchases in which users paid for their products on MoneySmart and not on the Providers’ site.
In any case that there is a valid reason that leads to the need to cancel the Insurance policy, for example, Cancellation of travel plans before the coverage start date, or reducing tier of their plans (i.e from Elite plan to basic plan), customer can follow these steps to rescind:
- Customer requests MoneySmart for the cancellation of the purchase.
- MoneySmart, upon further checking with the provider and at MoneySmart’s discretion, decides whether the request is eligible for a refund.
- The Provider will advise MoneySmart of a minimum amount of premium retained by the Provider as per purchase condition.
- If the request is eligible, MoneySmart will proceed to refund the balance, which is the total original purchase minus the minimum amount of premium mentioned above.
- Customer will receive the balance via the same payment method that he or she used to purchase the product. Note that the actual amount received might be less, as some banks or credit card providers might charge a fee when a customer receives this refund.
In any case that there is a valid reason that needs a change in the policy generated, for example, wrong date of birth or postal code, or extends the end date of coverage, etc, customer can follow these steps to ask for an update in the policy:
- Customer contacts MoneySmart and requests the detailed change
- If the request contains an extra payment (for example, in the case of extending the end date of coverage), MoneySmart will send a payment link with the payable amount to the customer's email.
- Customer pays the exact amount in the received link.
- Upon confirmation of payment received, MoneySmart will liaise with the Provider to generate the new policy and sends it to the customer.
