Have a worry-free holiday when you buy travel insurance


Make sure to be careful, okay!” says every parent to us when we’re about to head off for a holiday, whether it’s in Singapore or beyond. That said, it’s always advisable to arm yourself with travel insurance just in case you encounter any misadventures.


It includes medical coverage for cruises to nowhere

Cue TravellerShield Plus Insurance underwritten by Chubb, which you can easily sign up for while you’re browsing through the DBS Traveller Kit. This includes medical coverage while you’re on a cruise to nowhere or overseas, as well as baggage loss or damage. In the event of unexpected changes, you can also adjust your travel dates without any penalties. 

P.S. From next month onwards, this will even include coverage for Covid-19 if you’re travelling overseas.


Rack up miles on your DBS cards


Travel and holidays come hand-in-hand with miles. Now that we’re able to book flights guilt-free, we can revive our love for travel miles and exchange them for deals.

You won’t even have to rush to use them, because your miles don’t come with an expiry date. Not to mention, you’ll be able to score more miles on overseas spending and travel-related bookings. Perks are also aplenty with DBS partners such as Expedia and Kaligo, and you’ll be able to rack up additional miles when you make purchases on these platforms.

DBS Altitude Card perks:

  • 3 miles per S$1 on online flight and hotel transactions, including travel bookings made on DBS Travel Marketplace
  • 2 miles per S$1 on overseas spend (foreign currency spend)
  • 1.2 miles per S$1 on local spend
  • Complimentary Digital Priority Pass membership that gives DBS Altitude Visa cardmembers access to over 1,300 airport lounges worldwide

Earn more miles with DBS partners:

  • Up to 10 miles per S$1 on hotel transactions on Kaligo
  • Up to 6 miles per S$1 on flight and hotel transactions on Expedia
  • Up to S$100 savings on hotel transactions on Agoda  ​
  • Up to S$40 savings on hotel and activities on Klook​

Those with a DBS Visa Debit Card can also score 2% cashback when they spend in foreign currencies. With no FX fees incurred on 11 foreign currencies such as CAD and GBP, you can also shop and dine overseas with ease. 


DBS perks for your VTL & local travels


There’s no doubt that many of us are excited about taking a year-end break and bidding farewell to 2021. With travel being jump-started just as we’re in dire need of a holiday, DBS/POSB Cardmembers can take advantage of the oodles of deals on the DBS Travel & Leisure Marketplace

Whether it’s scoring additional DBS Points and miles, or unlocking discounts for hotel stays and activities on the DBS Traveller Kit, you can now start planning your vacation with ease. 

There are also upcoming perks that’ll help make the decision to hop onto a VTL flight easier. For example, Covid-19 benefits will be included in your complimentary insurance coverage when you book a flight on the DBS Travel & Leisure Marketplace in January 2022.

Lastly, here are some perks when you make use of DBS’ new Travel Mode feature: 

  • Get updates on the latest Covid-19-related travel rules
