Can I buy a travel insurance to travel to Zurich (Swiss), Rome and Paris if I am now studying in Sweden under a 6-month exchange programme?
As mentioned above, I am now studying in Sweden under a 6-month exchange programme which will end in Jun 2012. Can I buy a 2-week travel insurance from WorldNormads to travel to Zurich (Swiss), Rome and Paris and then back to Sweden (Stockholm) for holiday? I will be travelling there on 2 Jun 2012. Thank you.

If you are a permanent resident of Singapore (you have unlmited right of entry to Singapore, have access to long term healthcare and a permanent address in Singapore, and you would want to be repatriated to Singapore in the event of an emergency) you can purchase a policy even though your trip is beginning and ending in Sweden.
When purchasing a policy after you have already left your country of permanent residence, there is a 3 day waiting period for all benefits to become active from time of policy purchase. The pre-trip cancellation benefit does not apply as you are considered to have already started travelling.
