#TripSenangHati with Coverage for Travel Inconveniences
There are many travel inconveniences that could disrupt your otherwise perfect plan. Some common examples include:
- Delayed or cancelled flights
- Missed connecting flights
- Delayed, damaged, or lost luggage
With TripCare 360 Takaful, you’ll be compensated for a range of travel inconveniences. Regardless of the plan you choose, you’ll automatically receive RM100 if your flight is delayed by 2 hours. If you get the Platinum plan for your family trip abroad, you’ll get an extra RM250 for every additional 6 hours of delay, up to a total of RM12,500.
As you may have to bear additional costs due to travel inconveniences, having TripCare 360 Takaful can help you ease the burden.
#TripSenangHati with Coverage for Your Belongings
While travelling, it’s possible for your belongings to be damaged or stolen, regardless of how careful you are. For example, if your luggage is handled roughly by another person, it could be broken.
TripCare 360 Takaful covers losses or damages to a range of items, including:
- Travel documents, such as passports and visas
- Mobile phones, laptops, and tablets
If your luggage is lost, the domestic travel plan and Silver plan both offer RM200. Meanwhile, the Gold plan and Platinum plan provide RM800 and RM1,000, respectively.
This coverage also includes theft such as if your bag is snatched from you, or if your accommodation is broken into. With coverage for your belongings, you can travel without worry, knowing your belongings are taken care of.
#TripSenangHati with Coverage for Medical Emergencies
One of the more important benefits of TripCare 360 Takaful is that it covers a range of medical expenses if you fall ill or meet with an accident during your trip. You’ll be able to seek cashless hospital admission, which means you will not have to fork out cash for any upfront payment.
In the event of hospitalisation, just call our 24/7 hotline at +603-2785-6565 to get your Guarantee Letter (GL) and be admitted without payment.
Other benefits that you may receive include:
- Daily hospital allowance of up to 20 days
- Reimbursement for follow-up treatments
- Reimbursement for outpatient medical expenses of up to RM3,000 per accident
With the Platinum family plan, you can also claim for alternative treatments, such as physiotherapy and chiropractic by registered practitioners.
With TripCare 360 Takaful covering your expenses during medical emergencies, you can rest easy and focus on getting better.
#TripSenangHati with Additional Coverages
TripCare 360 Takaful offers comprehensive coverage for most travel-related incidents. Naturally, there are a few situations that are not covered in the basic plans, such as injuries due to adventurous activities and contagious diseases like COVID-19.
But, this doesn’t mean you can’t get covered. If these are things you’re concerned about, Etiqa has add-on options to expand your coverage to include these items:
Adventurous Activities Coverage
Add-ons are available based on your interests and preferences. So if you’re planning on participating in an adventurous or extreme activity on your overseas trip, get the adventurous activities add-on with your TripCare 360 Takaful plan. This will cover your medical bills and applicable expenses if you get injured while doing extreme activities, just in case.
Among adventurous activities covered include abseiling, bungee jumping, parasailing, skydiving, and ultra-marathons. You will only be covered if you’re an amateur doing the activities for fun. You will also need to be under the supervision of a licensed operator.
Most countries no longer require travellers to be tested negative for COVID-19 upon or after arrival. However, COVID-19 is still around us so it helps to have the COVID-19 coverage, in case you catch the virus.
With the optional COVID-19 coverage, you will be covered for medical expenses and other applicable costs due to COVID-19.
