Singaporeans usually travel during the mid and end-year school holidays. But with the occasional long weekends coming up, check out these sites for your holiday plans.
The holidays are coming! Whether you plan a short trip or a long vacation, here are some of the best sites to scout for cheap airfares, hotel deals, rental car rates and travel insurance.
- www.expedia.com (especially for North American flights)
- World Drive Holidays
Tarun C, a seasoned traveller who travels frequently for business and takes at least 2 family trips per year, swears by www.traveljigsaw.com.sg. He shares that this is by far the cheapest, most transparent and best site for car rental deals he had used.
“Some of the car rental sites may quote cheaper, but they have a lot of hidden charges that you have to pay for when you retrieve your car at the counter. This is the only site that informs you upfront of the charges so there is no further ‘surprise’ when you go collect your car.”
When you travel, it is always a good idea to get travel insurance. This is even more so when you travel with young kids, you get peace of mind and coverage for the following:
- Loss/misplacement of luggage, shopping or personal belonging
- Accidents – car or personal
- Illness – self or child
The amount of travel insurance you have to pay depends on the region you are travelling to and the number of days. Always do your own research to find which ones are suitable for you. Here are some travel insurance for you to consider.
- AXA travel insurance
- HSBC travel insurance
- Aviva travel insurance
- NTUC travel insurance
