Tune Protect officially launches the enhanced AirAsia Travel Protection by Tune Protect (“Travel Protection”) for AirAsia guests, which now comes with COVID-19 protection benefits.
The Travel Protection comes in both Single and Annual plans to suit customers’ traveling frequency, for both domestic and international travel.
The launch of the enhanced Travel Protection is timely especially with the reopening of domestic travel and the discussion that has been initiated to reopen Malaysia’s borders to “green zones” countries as Malaysia phases into the Recovery MCO.
The resumption of the travel and tourism sector is in line with the efforts in accelerating the country’s economic recovery and reviving the Malaysian travel and tourism industry which was at a standstill due to COVID-19.
For as low as RM56, the Annual Travel Protection Plan offers the best value for money protection as customers will be covered for an entire year (from the date of activation), regardless of the frequency of travel.
For AirAsia guests who have redeemed multiple flights for travel between 25 June 2020 - 31 March 2021 using the recently launched AirAsia Unlimited Pass, this is an opportunity for them to purchase the Annual Travel Protection Plan to ensure worry- and hassle-free protection all year round.
Alternatively, customers can also purchase the Single Plan coverage when they are purchasing AirAsia plane tickets or any time before they fly.
New and Enhanced Benefits
One of the unique features of this enhanced Travel Protection plan is the newly introduced COVID-19 Bereavement Allowance which pays out a sum of RM5,000/- in the event of the untimely demise of the policyholder due to COVID-19 contracted during the trip.
The enhanced Travel Protection also extends coverage of three existing benefits namely the Trip Cancellation, Daily Hospital Allowance and Compassionate Visit.
The Trip Cancellation benefit offers the reimbursement of the unused air ticket and travel package up to RM5,000 for domestic travel and RM10,000 for international travel if the policyholder is prevented from boarding the scheduled flight due to contracting COVID-19.
For the Single Plan, the Daily Hospital Allowance benefit pays up to RM1,500 for domestic travel and RM6,000 for international travel, whilst the Annual Plan pays up to RM6,000 for international travel if the policyholder has been confirmed positive and hospitalised for more than 24 hours due to COVID-19 while traveling.
Another unique value proposition of the product is the Compassionate Visit coverage extension where it reimburses up to RM1,000 for domestic travel and RM5,000 for international travel for a return AirAsia flight to allow one family member or friend to accompany the policyholder who is hospitalized due to COVID-19.
