How can saving a few dollars a day make you a millionaire?

I've heard tha saving at least S$10 a day would make me a millionaire. I am very interested to know why and if this is actually true. I've done my computation and it's really hard to fathom how this would make me a millinaire. Do I just keep saving the money or should I invest the money that I saved?

    This is a long term commitment and it is possible. Assuming that you're a normal person that worked at the age of 25 and retires at the age of 60. Saving $10 a day would give you 10x365x40 which totals to S$146,000. Investing your savings on stocks, bonds and fixed deposits would help you increase your savings by 10 folds which would bring you upto over a million dollars.

    AIG seems to concentrate all their resources on the upper tier plans

    Travel Guard Direct Basic / AIG Asia Pacific Insurance

    In all honesty, the AIG Travel Guard plans offer really poor value on their Basic plan, and only step up on the Standard plan. So if you’re looking for a cheap and good deal, you can skip AIG completely. The basic plan may be cheap but it is most definitely not good. The only reason you might want to get the low- to middle-tier AIG travel insurance is if you booked your trip via a travel agency and they have some kind of exclusive discount that’ll put it back in the competition.That said, the upper-tier travel insurance plans have surprisingly good coverage, so if you want to buy from AIG, go big or go home. AIG seems to concentrate all their resources on the upper tier plans. Plus, in terms of turnaround time, AIG is not bad – they’re willing to commit to a 10 working day turnaround time from claim to settlement. They’re not the only ones who do this, but it’s better than nothing.

    Coverage for pregnant women in their first or second trimester

    AVIVA Travel Lite / Aviva

    If you’re an Aviva policyholder or have a family member who is one who qualifies for the 30% discount, then don’t hesitate on going for this. Without a doubt, this is the cheapest and most purchase worth travel insurance you can buy out there. If you’re not a policyholder, it’s still a really good deal if you can get 18% discount with the promo code. Those travelling to a bit more expensive countries will want to get the second tier plan for a few dollars more. For pregnant women in their first or second trimester or just any woman who could be travelling while pregnant, Aviva travel insurance is one of the very few options that will cover your condition.

    Greater protection against baggage, rip delays and baggage loss

    HLAssurance Annual Unlimited / HL Assurance

    Within Asia, HL Assurance is the cheapest of the three plans for 1-week trips, but falls behind the other two for 2-week trips. HL Assurance's Enhanced Plan, like the Basic Plan, places more emphasis on travel inconvenience, with more coverage in this area than FWD and Etiqa. Comparatively speaking, FWD and Etiqa both provide more coverage for medical expenses, trip cancellation and personal accident/death. So if you want greater protection against disruptions like baggage and trip delays and baggage loss, HL Assurance's Enhanced Plan is a better choice.

    No esponse to email claims and poor customer care service

    HLAssurance Single Trip / HL Assurance

    Don’t bother to buy insurance from them no matter how cheap they offer it as they do not response to email claims and when one calls them for an update, one is told that it takes two months to REVIEW a claim. Well in my case one month had passed and they wrote back to me asking to prove that I travel outbound and other documents. Now my question is why they did not asked for such documents within a week of my claim submission? Please avoid this company!

    I cancelled my airline tickets and submitted my claim online

    Allianz Single Trip Travel Insurance / Allianz Global Assistance Singapore

    When I bought airline tickets much farther out in advance than I would normally do, I bought travel insurance via Allianz and also added the "required to work" rider for it just in case. I am so happy I did as due to some changes in my department I was not able to go on vacation as previously planned. I cancelled my airline tickets and submitted my claim online, including printouts showing I cancelled the tickets, along with an email from my supervisor indicating I was required to work.
