Damaged bank card

All of us become forgetful at times, and that times can sometimes be your unlucky time. While I was cleaning my bag, I put out all my things including all my cards. While I was not looking, my younger brother played with it and broke my bank card into half. I was wondering if it is okay to get another one from the bank.

    Asking for a new debit card is normal especially because accidents happen. Life happened. You just ask for request of new card to your bank and they will notify you as soon as possible if it is ready. When you activated your card, you shoukd discard the old one and destroy it completely. Make sure that all the numbers are cut and also the other parts of the card so that it will be hard to replicate.

    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.

    Covers pregnancy-related medical situations

    AVIVA Travel Plus / Aviva

    This Aviva travel insurance also covers pregnancy-related medical situations as long as the delivery date is at least 12 weeks away from your return to Singapore. Most other insurance companies are extremely reluctant to bear that risk but I should mention that if you’re planning to get married or engage in some pre-wedding photoshoot overseas, then take advantage of the nicely packaged add-on for comprehensive wedding coverage to help minimise the amount of freaking out over your special day.
