What can be excluded from my travel insurance policy?

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions they may not be covered under a standard travel insurance contract and you may need a specialist policy.  

Adventure activities that are considered ‘high-risk’, such as scuba-diving or motorcycling, may be excluded from your policy. It’s important you check your policy before travelling and consider getting additional cover.   

Try not to leave your belongings unattended, for example in a car. Although a travel insurance policy will cover stolen items, you could affect your ability to make a successful claim if you leave items unattended.

Your insurance provider may reject any claim you make that results from an incident that happened as a result of you being intoxicated by drugs or alcohol.

Split 1

How much is travel insurance for Singapore?

If you’re visiting Singapore, worldwide travel insurance could cost from £10 for a week or £16 for annual multi-trip policy, based on Compare the Market data in February 2019.

What type travel insurance do I need?

The most common policies are single-trip and annual multi-trip. If you’re going on more than one trip in a 12-month period, a multi-trip policy can be more cost effective. If you plan to stay for a long period of time or are visiting as part of a trip around a number of countries then you may have to get backpacker insurance.

What you’re doing will also impact the level of cover that you need. If you’re going for work purposes then you’ll need a business travel insurance policy. If you’re taking part in any adventure sports then you may need additional cover. 

What else do I need to know when travelling to Singapore?

Visa: if you’re a British passport holder then you don’t need a visa to enter Singapore for visits up to 90 days, whether you’re going for social or business purposes. If you’re planning on staying longer then you’ll need to get a visa.

Passport: your passport will need to be valid for a minimum of 6 months from the date of entry to Singapore.

Climate: Singapore has a tropical climate and tends to be warm all year round. However, it can also be quite humid, so you’ll have to dress accordingly. It’s a good idea to plan any excursions for a cooler morning before you reach the midday heat.

Vaccinations: to get advice on vaccinations, book in an appointment with your GP at least six weeks before you travel. Ask your doctor about the following courses or boosters:

  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Diphtheria 
  • Yellow fever

Some vaccinations will be free under the NHS , but not all. Your doctor should be able to advise you on what vaccinations are necessity and what are lower risk. They may also refer you to a specialist health centre.
