3 Reasons To Get Tokio Marine Travel Insurance

As much as Singaporeans love all things Japan, that same love does not quite extend to Japanese insurers like Tokio Marine just yet. Nonetheless, Tokio Marine travel insurance is worth considering for the following reasons:

Value-for-money Travel Insurance

Tokio Marine travel insurer premiums are competitive against that of popular insurers like FWD and NTUC Income. The insurer has also recently upgraded its travel insurance benefits to make the plans more value-for-money.

Unique Pricing Tiers

Tokio Marine practices 2-tier travel insurance pricing (either Asia or Worldwide) while most other insurers have 3 tiers (ASEAN, Asia, Worldwide). So for a weekend getaway to Thailand or the Philippines, Tokio Marine will not be the cheapest travel insurance option out there. But if you are going to Japan or Korea, Tokio Marine may be a more affordable option.

Coverage for Adventurous Activities

Unlike many other insurers, Tokio Marine’s travel insurance is on the lenient side for adventurous activities. Its travel insurance covers even riskier sports like white water rafting, bungee jumping and skydiving, which are excluded by some other plans.

Tokio Marine Travel Insurance Claims

Tokio Marine travel insurance claims can be done quite easily online. The insurer’s website has a claims centre which consolidates the forms and documents needed to make a claim. Simply fill in the online and attach your documents; alternatively, you can download a printable hard copy claim form, which you can submit to the Tokio Marine office.

Tokio Marine Travel Insurance Hotline

<p>If you want to speak to someone, you can call Tokio Marine’s general hotline at +65 6221 6111 during office hours. Their operating hours are 8.45am to 5.45pm from Mondays to Fridays.</p> <p>Otherwise, you can also email [email protected] for general enquiries or [email protected] for claims-related enquiries, or simply submit an enquiry on their website.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does Tokio Marine travel insurance cover pre-existing conditions?
    No, Tokio Marine travel insurance benefits are not claimable if they arise from a pre-existing medical condition. For example, if you have a history of asthma and get a flare-up on your trip, causing you to have to buy medication, you won’t be able to claim for that.
  • What’s the difference between the Premier and Classic plans?
    Tokio Marine’s Classic travel insurance plan is slightly cheaper, but its claim limits are smaller than that of the Premier plan. For example, the trip cancellation benefit is up to $5,000, compared to $10,000 for Premier. If you are a modest traveller whose trip won’t exceed $5,000 anyway, you can save a few dollars with the Classic plan.
  • Does Tokio Marine cover any adventure activities?
    Yes, Tokio Marine is relatively lenient on that. Most leisure activities are covered, including skydiving, scuba diving and trekking. However, Tokio Marine does not cover professional sports and “hazardous sports activities”. If you have a specific activity planned, it’s best to call up Tokio Marine to check first.
  • Which countries are in Tokio Marine’s lower pricing tier?
    Tokio Marine’s Zone A (or “Asia”) countries are Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Brunei, Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia, China (including Inner Mongolia), Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand. Everywhere else is under Zone B (“Worldwide”).
