Local insurance providers refuse to cover Hong Kong trip cancellations

It's excluded in insurance policies.

NTUC Income revealed that it will no longer cover cancellation of trips to Hong Kong, as the clashes continue between police and pro-democracy protesters in the island.

“In view of the protest in Hong Kong publicised by the mass media and travel advisory by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, certain travel inconvenience benefits such as ‘Cancelling your trip’ and ‘Postponing your trip’ will not be covered if you have activated travel insurance policies for trips to Hong Kong after this event was made known. The protest in Hong Kong is now regarded as a known event and is excluded under our travel insurance policy,” said NTUC income.

On October 1, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned Singaporeans travelling to or residing in Hong Kong to take all necessary precautions for personal safety. Among the precautions included in the MFA’s list is purchasing comprehensive travel and medical insurance.
