DBS Travel Insurance Plan–TravellerShield

October 27, 2013

I was at Ngee Ann City today for a spot of shopping and guess what I found?

Apparently there is this new travel insurance plan by DBS called TravellerShield. You can find out more about TravellerShield here http://bit.ly/UnexpectedHoliday or watch a video here http://youtu.be/wcFOP3r4rhQ. Most travel insurance plans in the market are largely the same, with the differences being in the fine print. The interesting thing about this new TravellerShield is that you can sign up for the free exclusive new benefit called the TravelAlert Service.  It is only available to those who purchase TravellerShield.

If you sign up for it, you will receive safety and security related information about your travel destination via SMS alerts. These alerts cover situations or incidents listed below that may affect your travel plans.

  • Political unrest, war and terrorism
  • Extreme weather, earthquakes and natural disasters
  • Public transportation delays, riot, strikes
  • Health related information like outbreaks and contamination

These location-specific alerts are sent directly to your mobile phone via SMS, providing early warning for you to take action or make alternative plans. That’s a really useful feature to have because most likely, you won’t be keeping up with the news like you would back home with your computer and Internet connection easily available.

Even if you are like me, where I will PAY for roaming service or buy a local datacard when I am overseas, my apps and subscriptions are mainly tuned to Singapore news, so a helping hand in pushing important news over certainly will be appreciated. Touch wood lah, but if the bus drivers suddenly go on strike (especially in France!!), you will also not be caught unawares!

If you buy TravellerShield from now until the end of the year, you get up to 25% off + a free gift! Check out the DBS TravellerSheild Booth at the Ngee Ann Basement Atrium on 26 and 27 Oct from 12 — 9pm, take a holiday photo at the photo booth to stand a chance to win a trip to Hong Kong!!


You can get your photo taken at the booth for FREE! Your photo will be automatically uploaded on to DBS Facebook Page after which, you will need to tag yourself, share with your friends! Rally your friends to vote for you because you may win a pair of tickets to Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific airways! Online voting ends 11 Nov at 12PM so hurry!! It’s quite fun, so if you have time, remember to take several shots cuz they will give you a hardcopy to keep! I quite regret not taking more photos! Btw you can vote for my photo here!

  1. The DBS Travel Shield policies underwritten by MSIG are heavily promoted and discounted but are full of caveats around the medical and activities you can and cannot claim under. beware of this product. For all the advertising regarding adventure sports cover you will find many popular activities are not covered. The advertising is false. Their exclusions for some medical conditions is stringent and the general exclusion for anything related to pregnancy taken to the letter. we found out we were pregnant while travelling and needed to change our flights. they would not assist. brutal. avoid this product
