BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN – Nearly a year after Takaful Brunei Am (TBA) introduced its newly improved Musafir Takaful, more than $52,000 worth of claims had been made, proving that the coverage can help travellers mitigate and manage risks.

In 2018, TBA reimbursed $2,400 in baggage damages and over $50,000 for medical expenses abroad. This staggering data indicates the true risk exposure and unforeseen circumstances faced when traveling.

Under the Musafir Takaful, you can make a claim within 14 days of the incident and it will be processed within 24 hours. Meanwhile, for medical emergencies when abroad, customers can reach out to the SOS provider.

There’s also a 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance Service which you can reach out to for assistance in emergency related services such as provides a 24 hours assistancet and related emergency services such as medical expenses, evaluation and repatriation.

So, if you’re planning to travel, put your worries at ease with TBA’s Musafir Takaful which covers up to 24 types of comprehensive benefits. You can also opt for a family and group package, which have been put together at a more competitive rate.

The most valuable coverage is the Medical Expenses coverage which covers up to $300,000. Being in a foreign country with the risk of a medical emergency, the medical treatment bills are required to be fully paid by the individual or family members. This may put unnecessary financial burden and delay in treatment. However, the Musafir Takaful, guarantees that your medical treatment will be compensated.

Under the Musafir Takaful, you are covered for a sum of up to $1 million for emergency medical evacuation and repatriation for emergency medical transportation charges back to Brunei.

For frequent travellers, TBA encourages to take up the Musafir Takaful Annual Plan as it is cheaper than purchasing on a per trip basis. With the annual plan, travelers are covered throughout an entire year without having to renew before every trip.
