Regardless of destination and length of coverage, the cheapest travel insurance plans for seniors are Etiqa, FWD and HL Assurance, as premiums for their basic plans from these insurers cost between 25-35% below average.

Etiqa and FWD can be good cheap options for Asia and ASEAN trips, costing around S$20-25 for a one-week trip. FWD offers more comprehensive medical coverage than Etiqa, with S$40,000 medical expense coverage and S$2,000 of domestic medical coverage for seniors over 70. On the other hand, Etiqa's coverage is more modest with a total of S$31,000 of international and domestic medical coverage for its basic plan. However, its ongoing promotions can make it a good option for seniors who are focused on price and are healthy enough to not require high levels of medical coverage.

If you are interested in protecting your trip itinerary, HL Assurance offers above average trip cancellation and delay coverage out of its peers and it offers the highest medical expense coverage out of the four, with S$50,000 of coverage. However, it is one of the more pricier options out of the 4, costing S$187 for an annual ASEAN plan.

If you want to gain the most from your travel insurance, high value plans like Aviva, Direct Asia, NTUC Income and Allianz Global Assistance offer the most coverage per dollar of premium for seniors due to their generous medical coverage and solid trip inconvenience coverage. Aviva Plus, Direct Asia 500 and Allianz Silver, specifically, offer competitive pricing that is below average with premiums that are 15-40% below their peers. At the same time, they offer above average medical expense coverage and trip inconvenience coverage.

Direct Asia is a good option if you are on a tight budget, as its 500 plan is cheaper than the Aviva and Allianz equivalents, with a global trip costing S$62. Aviva and NTUC Income (not the Pre-X plans) are good options for active or medically-focused senior travellers due to Aviva's flexible cancellation policies and NTUC's high medical benefits. However, NTUC can become pricey quickly, so it may not work for seniors who are looking for budget plans. Allianz Global is a good option for travel inconvenience coverage as it offers up to S$15,000 of trip cancellation coverage and S$12,000 of baggage loss coverage and can work for seniors who travel with expensive belongings.

Most travel insurance companies cut coverage if you or someone you are insuring is over the age of 70. However, Aviva and NTUC have some of the most lenient coverages when it comes to medical claims. If you are on a tight budget but still want a plan that provides ample medical coverage, Aviva is a clear winner as it doesn't cut domestic medical, international medical and personal accident coverage for elderly policyholders. It also offers a variety of medical benefits including dental expenses, emergency telephone expenses, quarantine and hospital visit expenses.

If you are travelling with pre-existing conditions, NTUC's Pre-X is a good option, albeit expensive option, as it is the only insurer who will let you claim for medical expenses arising from your pre-existing conditions. There are a couple of ways this plan can come in handy. First, similar to other plans, you can claim for medical expenses while abroad and continue treatment once back home in Singapore if a medical emergency arises due to your medical condition. Second, you can claim your medical expenses either under travel inconvenience (i.e. you had to cancel your trip due to a pre-existing condition) albeit, with a 50% co-payment. Additionally, you'll receive other benefits like travel agency insolvency, repatriation and missed connections coverage. However, you should know that you can not purchase annual Pre-X policies online but may do so over the phone.

If you are looking for maximum peace of mind regarding your itinerary and baggage, Allianz and Aviva's travel insurance plans may be a great fit. If your budget is not restricted, Allianz's Global Assistance Gold plan offers the highest trip inconvenience coverage on the market with S$25,000 of trip cancellation coverage, S$1,500 trip delay coverage and S$15,000 of baggage loss/damage coverage. If you are willing to sacrifice some of the limits in exchange for more affordable prices, you can opt for Allianz's Silver plan. It is still a very solid plan with S$12,000 of baggage loss or damage coverage, S$15,000 of trip cancellation, and S$15,000 of trip postponement coverage.

If you care more about flexibility rather than coverage amounts, Aviva's Prestige and Plus travel insurance plans are great alternatives as they let you cancel your trip or change your travel dates for any reason and offers up to S$8,000 of baggage loss and S$3,000 of theft coverage. While Aviva's Plus plan is more expensive and has premiums above the market average, Aviva's Prestige plan can be quite affordable for single trips as it costs around 15% below the market average.
