If you prefer to be in control rather than taking risks, you have probably already purchased travel insurance before a holiday or business trip. Getting travel insurance makes a lot of sense.

Have you ever thought of how much it would cost to transport you to suitable medical facilities if you were to suddenly become ill or have a serious accident while travelling in a country with poor medical facilities?

Who would take care of your family if, in the worst case, you were to suffer a fatal airline accident? How would you buy new clothes and other basics if your luggage was delayed?

But before you blow a lot of money on travel insurance every time you take a trip, you should know that some of the best credit cards give you complimentary travel insurance when you use them to pay for your trip.

We at GET.com will show you our pick of the 2 best travel credit cards in Singapore that offer the most comprehensive travel insurance coverage along with other travel benefits.

There are big differences in the actual insurance coverage you get with different credit cards and some don't give you travel insurance at all.

Quite a few cards give you travel accident insurance, which pays out a benefit if you are seriously disabled or if you die in an airline accident.

But the best credit cards with travel insurance cover you in many different situations. These may include luggage loss or delays, flight delays or cancellations, loss of travel documents and unexpected medical and dental emergencies.

Some cards even cover the cost of emergency transportation to medical facilities or even back to Singapore should an unexpected medical emergency arise during your trip.

Another rare, but useful benefit is trip interruption and cancellation coverage, which reimburses you up to a certain amount if you have to unexpectedly cancel a trip that you have already paid for.
