Etiqa Insurance has been named official travel insurance partner of the National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS), from 2020 to 2022.

In a statement by Etiqa, it said that it is committed to working with NATAS and its members towards sustainable growth and profitability in the travel industry. It recognised the need to build significant partnerships to operate more effectively, and has pledged support to NATAS and its members to strive towards service excellence and agility.

The announcement came ahead of the upcoming NATAS Travel Fair, which will be held from February 21-23 at the Singapore Expo Halls 4B and 5. According to the statement, each fair draws over 100,000 visitors on average, and brings together a host of outbound travel agents, national tourist organisations, airlines, hotels, and other travel-related services.

“Outbound departures by Singapore residents had crossed the 10 million mark in 2018 and will heighten in the next few years,” said Steven Ler, president of NATAS. “NATAS has always been a strong advocate of travel insurance and believes that comprehensive travel insurance is fundamental to smart travelling. The association is excited to partner with Etiqa Insurance to effectively drive this message across to all travellers via the biannual NATAS Travel Fairs and various marketing outreach initiatives. Beyond the NATAS Travel Fairs, we envisage this collaboration to unlock new possibilities in strengthening the value propositions of the travel agency community.”
