Enjoy worry-free holiday travels to these destinations

Have peace of mind for as low as P350.

Traveling with the family might feel like a tough balancing act during the holidays, but investing in travel insurance can help ease the stress, especially when you’re traveling abroad. GCash, in partnership with Malayan and Standard Insurance, offers affordable comprehensive travel insurance, through the GInsure platform on the GCash app. For as low as P103, you can enjoy a worry-free holiday experience, knowing that you are covered in case of unexpected events.

Here are some top destinations worth spending the holidays in, and how you can enjoy your travel to the fullest with travel insurance you can buy on GInsure:

  • Singapore  

Singapore is known for fusing Western influences with local culture. Shop for gifts at Orchard Road, its main shopping district, while marveling at festive larger-than-life lightscapes and animated displays. Visit the Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay, where you can take stunning photos with the iconic Supertrees. Lastly, savor Singapore-fied traditional festive treats, from Christmas Tandoori roast turkey to ondeh-ondeh cake.

Fly direct via Changi Airport and worry-free travel with Malayan Insurance Travel Master with COVID-19 coverage. This comprehensive plan protects you from unforeseen inconveniences like flight delays, trip cancellations, lost documents, damaged luggage, and even laptop mishaps, allowing you to focus on creating unforgettable memories in Singapore.

  • Thailand

Thailand does not celebrate Christmas as a traditional festival but it offers a charming alternative to the usual festivities. Go on holiday shopping for unique crafts and finds at the festive and vibrant markets of Bangkok. On New Year’s Eve, head North to Chiang Mai and witness the release of traditional Thai lanterns, called ‘khom loy.’ This is said to be a way of releasing the troubles of the past year and attracting luck for the upcoming one.

Begin your relaxation even before you’ve touched down at the Suvarnabhumi Airport. Standard Insurance Travel Protect International offers trip inconvenience benefits, including for delayed departure, trip postponement, missed connection, trip diversion, baggage delay, loss of or damage to luggage, loss of travel documents and hijacking.

  • Japan

Whether you’re dreaming of a snowy holiday or a festive feast, Japan is the place to be. Experience a winter wonderland at the snow parks of Hokkaido, or see the historical villages of Shirakawa-go and Takayama Jinya transform into real-life Christmas villages. Beyond snow, Japan also has stunning light displays, including Tokyo’s famous 1.2-kilometre-long Marunouchi Naka-dori street. Complete the Christmas feast by savoring the sweetness of traditional ‘kurisumasu keki,’ fluffy sponge cakes topped with fresh strawberry slices.

Planning to rent a car to get around Japan? Malayan Insurance Travel Master with COVID-19 includes car rental protection, on top of accidental death coverage, personal liability coverage, and emergency medical treatment, so you can enjoy your road trip worry-free.

  • Hong Kong

Indulge in a delightful experience for your senses by visiting Hong Kong’s WinterFest. Visit West Kowloon Cultural District, Hong Kong’s world-class art and culture hub, for a trip to the Christmas Town. At the Great Lawn, you can spread out some picnic mats, get front-row seats to breathtaking pyrotechnic displays at the iconic Victoria Harbour, and relish in festive treats such as pineapple buns, Hong Kong-style egg tarts, and steamed rice rolls.

Wherever you are in Asia, confidently travel because Standard Insurance Travel Protect International Protect offers emergency medical assistance, including medical treatment during or arising from COVID-19, delivery of medicine, emergency dental care, emergency medical evacuation and repatriation, hospital income, and compassionate visit.
