A guide to getting travel insurance with Covid cover in Malaysia


If you are going on vacation soon, you might want to consider getting travel insurance that includes Covid cover in Malaysia.

Although travel restrictions have eased, it’s still a good idea to be cautious when going abroad. Covid-19 is still around, and each country has different quarantine and healthcare rules when it comes to the virus.

The last thing you want to happen when you’re on vacation is catching Covid-19, but if you do, it will give you and your family peace of mind knowing that you are covered by insurance. While pre-pandemic travel insurance was considered a luxury some travelers never cared about, it’s no longer an option for most of us in 2022.

We have seen with our own eyes how pandemics can severely affect travel when borders suddenly closed in 2020. Besides medical coverage, buying travel insurance with Covid coverage can also be a lifesaver if you are stuck overseas. Covid-19 cover often includes evacuation (if required), trip cancellation cover, quarantine benefits, etc.

It can be daunting and overwhelming to sift through policies to find the best travel insurance with Covid cover. Therefore, we have put together this guide that is easy to refer to when planning your trip. Be careful!
