For all of us, the last quarter of the year is synonymous with one thing: holidays. As we’re looking forward to wrapping up 2021 by packing our suitcases for a getaway, we can now turn to DBS Travel & Leisure Marketplace for a slew of deals and savings.

“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.
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.

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.
