Where to Buy Travel Insurance Online for your Asian Adventure

A lot of people I knew, do not buy travel insurance whenever they book a flight or travel. I am one of those people who feels that travel insurance is just an additional travel expense. But after experiencing some travel disasters in the past such as delayed flights, canceled flights, damaged luggage, and lost luggage, I realized that we need to buy travel insurance for our future travels.

Last year was the very first time that I bought travel medical insurance, it is one of the mandatory requirements if we are going to apply for Schengen Visa so I have no choice. Fortunately, we can buy travel insurance online so less stress.

A few weeks ago, we booked a plane ticket and I was contemplating whether I will buy travel insurance or not. I checked the rates of Philippine Airlines and I saw $16, if I will add it to my plane ticket. Then I remembered the travel medical insurance that I bought last year at Malayan Insurance Company, Inc. So I checked their rates and it is cheaper than PAL Travel Insurance so I asked my husband if I will buy it and he agreed. Since I can buy travel insurance online, I just bought it two days before our flight.

How to Buy Pacific Cross Travel Insurance Online

We recently booked a plane ticket for our upcoming trip and after we received our Confirmed Ticket, I immediately searched for travel insurance. Since we are flying via Philippine Airlines, I checked PAL Travel Insurance; the rate is $22 per person. There is no family rate so I checked the travel brochure of Pacific Cross that I downloaded when I purchased our Schengen Travel Insurance with COVID19 several months ago. 

When I purchased our Schengen Travel Insurance, for some reason I can’t do it online so it took me a week in applying and purchasing our travel insurance. But with my recent purchase, I was able to purchase online and received our travel insurance via email. 

1. Go to this link 

On this page, you can check the website, download a brochure, get a quote or buy now. 

2. Download the brochure to check the updated rates.

Prestige Plus 

The rate varies depending on the plan, destination, and days.

Travel excluding USA/Canada/HongKong

In our case, we will be traveling for 5 days so I have to avail of the “Up to 8 Days” plan. Here are the rates for individuals and families. Since we are traveling as a family, I chose Family Rate to save money.

Travel excluding USA/Canada/HongKong/8 Days/Individual 

Executive Peso PHP513

Privilege Peso PHP1,140 

Travel excluding USA/Canada/HongKong/8 Days/Family

  1. It's good to know that it's more convenient and faster now to buy travel insurance. I used to arrange travel insurance for my former boss and we usually had to call them pa.
