Etiqa Insurance has boosted its flagship travel insurance product to provide coverage to travellers transiting through Singapore.

Etiqa’s enhanced Tiq travel insurance plan now provides online travel coverage to foreigners on tourist visas. Travellers planning to take return trips to Singapore can also purchase coverage while in the city-state.

In a statement, Etiqa said the product was designed specifically for visiting friends and relatives (VFR), and those whom they are visiting.

“When travellers come to Singapore to visit their friends and relatives who are working or studying here, they may have plans to travel together,” said Sue Chi Kong, chief executive officer of Etiqa Insurance. “We see the potential of VFR travel in Singapore and wish to extend simple and convenient travel protection to all.”

Launched last December, the Tiq travel plan insurance provides flexible coverage according to travellers’ demographics, travel style, and party composition with features such as a three-generation family plan and automated flight delay benefits upon three consecutive hours of delay.
