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. Thatâ€™s a really useful feature to have because most likely, you wonâ€™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 â€“ 9pm, take a holiday photo at the photo booth to stand a chance to win a trip to Hong Kong!!
