As Brunei Darussalam begins to re-open outbound air travels to Travel Green List countries for non-essential travel, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has introduced the pre-departure requirements which include the purchase of travel health insurance with COVID-19 coverage with a minimum coverage of BND50,000.
In response, Takaful Brunei Am Sdn Bhd (TBA) is readily providing COVID-19 coverage in their Musafir (Travel) Takaful.
Musafir Takaful has been enhanced to include COVID-19 coverage to ensure the safety of citizens and residents of the Sultanate, who are planning to travel overseas.
TBA is currently the only takaful/insurance company providing COVID-19 coverage for travellers from Brunei.
TBA’s Musafir (Travel) Takaful is offered in two packages: Naim and Firdaus package for ASEAN and worldwide destinations.
The Naim covers up to USD40,000 (equivalent to BND55,000) while the Firdaus package covers up to USD100,000 (equivalent to BND140,000) in medical expenses due to COVID-19.
Takaful participants are also covered for personal accident, baggage loss and damage, medical evacuation and repatriation and several other coverage and benefits.
Both packages are also available with annual coverage ideal for frequent travellers.
TBA encourages customers to utilise contactless participation through the Takaful Brunei mobile app, TBA call centre or through its WhatsApp line.
Takaful Brunei mobile app provides customers with instant quotations and online payments around the clock and customers can easily view and select the Musafir Takaful Naim or Firdaus packages.
Customers participating through the Takaful mobile app will receive a 10-per-cent discount on their purchase.
