It’s great to go for a holiday on your second trimester because when baby’s here, it’s going to be hard to holiday for 6months at least!
That’s from my experience =)!
A usual misconception is travel insurance is more expensive for pregnant women, which is NOT TRUE. It’s the same price.
Travelling in second trimester is greater because it’s harder to enjoy when your pregnant tummy is heavy in the 3rd trimester.
And you may NOT be able to fly once you are quite near to due date. For some airlines it’s week32, some it’s week 36.
So go travel but buy the right travel insurance that covers for pregnancy claims.
Today i’ll share with you on AVIVA Travel insurance, Liberty Tourcare Plus, Tm XPlora and AXA Travel.
DO YOU KNOW MOST TRAVEL INSURANCE EXCLUDE PREGNANCY CLAIMS?
DO NOT CHOOSE THE CHEAPEST INSURER and assume you will be covered for medical treatment in an event of dehydration, motion sickness or injury while pregnant. It is generally excluded as shown below.
Before you read further, do note that insurers DO NOT cover for you if you are in your first trimester.
Beyond a certain number of weeks, many airlines will not allow flight for pregnant mums too.
FOUR travel insurance plans that can cover for pregnant mums with pregnancy coverage!
I’ve listed the policy wordings too.
And for all of these travel insurance plans, you can buy it online. BUT stay till the end and I’ve a recommendation for you!

The maximum $8,000 for overseas emergency medical expense for pregnancy related given by AVIVA travel insurance is not bad.
