  5. Just want to check have anyone of you make any successful claim to Jetcover before? it is a travel insurance policy. early this month i have tried to make a claim due to the flight delay of about 8 hours . after sending the document which they require, one week later, i received a email reply asking for the same document again, i tried again to resend it with attachment and include my HP no. for her to call me, another week past, i receive the same reply again.. the frustration is they do not leave any tel no. for me to call back and ask.... and when i tried to contact the insurance claim no. from the website, the insurance claim that they are from different department, and when i asking for the telephone no. for the relevant claim department, their reply are they do not know the no??? week after week, how can we expect much from this in-house insurance company when they can't even have a proper customer office who can handle all these enquires when customer having problem.

  10. Mediacorp is producing period drama for the first time in 20 years. The story is set in the Ming Dynasty and based on the historical figure Li Shizhen. Out of the 30 episodes, 6 episodes is in the ancient setting. The production will fly to Hengdian to film in December, and slated for broadcast on Channel 8 in May 2020. Mediacorp may produce full fledged period drama again if the response of this show is good. https://www.zaobao.com.sg/zentertainment/movies-and-tv/story20191002-993825 Hope it won't be a flop
  11. Travel For Even Cheaper Now As Scoot Removes Payment Processing Fees Globally Source: https://vulcanpost.com/675940/scoot-removes-payment-processing-fees/ Looking to travel somewhere before 2019 comes to a close? Here’s some great news. Today, low-cost carrier Scoot announced the removal of payment processing fees globally, aligning with its vision of making travel attainable for all. This means that flights will get cheaper for travellers! Said Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot’s CEO on the announcement: “When Scoot first started, we offered a limited range of payment methods at a higher implementation and maintenance cost. As we expanded globally and heard our customers’ feedback, we took advantage of advancements in payment technology to implement many more payment methods to improve our customers’ experience.” “In order to pass on the savings to our customers as our costs came down, we have since March 2018 progressively removed payment processing fees in selected markets. Now, we are ready to do away with it globally.” This change will happen with immediate effect and will be applicable to bookings made on its direct channels. For travel out of Singapore, Scoot previously charged $10 per traveller per flight for payment via credit card. This meant that for a return trip to Taipei from Singapore, each traveller previously incurred a $20 payment processing fee. These fees will no longer be applicable. Singapore Travellers, Use PayNow To Pay For Your Air Ticket In a bid to provide its customers with a seamless booking experience, Scoot currently offers a wide range of payment options. Beyond the more common payment options like Credit Card and PayPal, Scoot also offers payment via e-wallets Apple Pay and Google Pay. With a presence in 67 cities and 17 countries and territories, Scoot has also made efforts to tie up with localised payment systems. Other examples of their localisation efforts include payment by WeChat Pay and Alipay for customers in China, Konbini for those in Japan, DragonPay for those in the Philippines, and POLi for customers in Australia. With technological advancements helping to significantly defray costs required to support and maintain payment infrastructure, Scoot has progressively removed payment processing fees since March 2018, starting with Europe. P.S. If you’re looking for even more savings, Scoot’s Got To Go Promotion is also commencing tomorrow (24 Sept)! Find out more about the destinations and applicable travel periods for the promotion here: www.flyscoot.com/gtg

    Problem with Travel Company

    wanna ask MCFer hiadees/hiabuays. My brother had a tour booked through NATAS that was cancelled. The tour company agreed to refund the deposit. He signed a paper with the company which states it takes 4 to 6 weeks to get his refund via reverse credit card entry which the bank will advise and update in his credit card account. 8 weeks had passed, nothing. Now brother is thinking of complaining to the relevant authorities. CASE as we know is toothless. Should be go to NATAS? anyone can advise or perhaps share similar experiences?

  19. Greetings! Did a short getaway to Guangzhou, China with my wife a short while back. We were looking for a short getaway, and at first we looked at the region, but finally decided that it would be more fun to go to China instead. So we chose Guangzhou, which was a 4 hour flight (like flying to Hong Kong). It was a free and easy trip. We didn't cover very much, but hey, this was supposed to be for rest and relaxation. Before I jump into what we say, check out this new 'All Fours Movement' (coined by me). Elderly crawling up hill on all fours? This was at Yue Xiu Park, Guangzhou. Quite bizarre, but they seem to know what they were doing. Stay tuned for more.

  22. HI, For those travelling to Bali and have query on travel claim, please see below notice sent by AIG. P/S: The below is only for info only. May varies between insurers. Please check with your insurer for more info. Important note for travellers to Bali On 23 September 2017, the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a travel advisory which indicated that with the increased possibility of the eruption of Mount Agung, Singaporeans should defer non-essential travel to the affected areas at this juncture. With the advisory in mind, we would like to inform travellers to Bali that disruptions arising out of any volcanic activity in Mount Agung, including but not limited to the airspace closures in Bali, may not be covered unless your travel insurance policy was issued or travel insurance arrangements confirmed on or before 22 September 2017. Travellers who purchased or confirmed travel insurance cover on or after 23 September 2017 may not be covered as the event would not be considered ‘unforeseeable’, as the disruptions have been widely reported in the media from this date. Hence, we would like to advise our travel insurance policyholders who purchased or confirmed their travel arrangements on or before 22 September to check their respective policies for the wording relating to eligibility, cover entitlement and the type of expenses that can be claimed. As always, we will assess any claims for cover for trip cancellation and additional expenses incurred based on the individual circumstances, as well the terms and conditions of the policy. Please see the below for scenario examples. Per Trip Plan Policies purchased on or before 22 September 2017 1. Insured wishes to file for travel cancellation – It will not be a payable event as volcano has not erupted and does not satisfy terms and conditions for claim under Travel Cancellation Benefit. 2. Insured decides to cancel the policy – We will arrange for full refund of premium. 3. Insured is travelling on 5 October but the volcano erupts on 4 October – Insured can file in for Travel Cancellation and we will assess claims according to Travel Guard terms and conditions. Per Trip Plan Policies purchased on or after 23 September 2017 1. Insured wishes to file for travel cancellation – It will not be a payable event as MFA has already released the travel advisory and the potential of volcanic eruption is a known event which is excluded from coverage. Any other claims that are relating to the volcano eruption is excluded from coverage as well. 2. Insured decides to cancel the policy – We will arrange for full refund of premium. 3. Insured is travelling on 5 October but the volcano erupts on 4 October – It will not be a payable event as highlighted in point 1. Annual Plan Policies 1. Insured wishes to file for travel cancellation – If travel arrangements were confirmed on or before 22 September 2017, it will be a payable event. The event is not covered if the travel ticket to Bali is purchased on or after 23 September.

  25. My 2nd trip to Tokyo! Via Delta Airline this time. Plane tix at $500+/pax. First meal after touching down at Harajuku vicinity: Ore-Ryu Shio Ramen. Nothing beats having a bowl of hot soup in cold weather as the saying goes: Life is hard, and winter is cold, but there's always ramen! Temperature: 10 Degrees Celsius, with slight drizzle. Lawson to start the day: Rainbow Pancake at Harajuku. We queued up for this under the rain simply because of the rainbow color decor. The Macadamia Nut Pancake is a must try. Better than the pancakes at Flippers! Sauce is deliciously good. My first trip to Tokyo I visited the Owl Cafe. This time round it was to Hedgehog Cafe & Pet Store HARRY. Per pax we paid about 1600Yen+ for 30 mins of playtime with the hedgehogs and some meal worms as their snacks. Hedgehogs sleep most of the day and these ones are so accustomed to sleeping in people's hands you don't really get to interact much with them other than them curling up in a ball to sleep on your hands. There's also a minder assigned to each table/group of customer to ensure customers don't mishandle them, for those concerned about the welfare of the animals in such cafes.
