Now everyone can buy travel insurance from one of the world’s biggest insurers online.

Insurance is a no-brainer when you travel, and now, you have one more choice in travel insurance policies – buy it online from AIG via Lazada.

This is possible following a partnership between AIG and Lazada where travel insurance from as low as RM8.00 can be purchased online.

“Malaysians are severely underinsured. Only 15% (of Malaysian travelers) buy travel insurance compared to 75% of Singaporeans who travel,” said Anthony Lee, AIG Malaysia’s chief executive officer.

“The most important thing when travelling is to cover medical expenses because this is something that can cost far more than missing baggage or a delayed flight,” he said, while also providing an example of when his mother contacted pneumonia and the bill for medical treatment reached Euro30,000.

It’s also convenient to buy travel insurance online because not everyone has an insurance agent who is happy to sell a RM43.00 policy for travel insurance for 5 days in Asia.
