What is the best bank that will give a big interest to my savings?

I am preparing for the upcoming operation of my mother due to her kidney stones. Since I know that it will cost a lot of money, I started saving money since December last year and her operation will be this upcoming July. I'm thinking to put the money in the bank since it was dangerous keeping it all in my wallet or be left in the house, plus the interest will be of great help.

    There are lots of available banks that gives up to 3% interest rate to your savings but surely, there will be minimum amount that should be left in the bank. It is also good to apply a savings plan which guarantees the client that the cash deposited/saved in the bank will grow as time goes by. It will be of great help in the future when medicines are needed to be bought because the expenses will not stop after the surgery.

    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.

    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.

    If you plan to buy travel insurance with Citibank, be prepared to pay a premium

    Citi Travel Insurance / Citibank Singapore

    With Citibank, you have a choice between complimentary travel insurance with a Citi PremierMiles, Citibank Cash Back or Citibank Rewards Card or paying for a premium insurer. If you take a closer look at the coverage limits on the complimentary insurance plans, you’ll realise that the limits fall way short of industry standards for paid travel insurance. Which essentially means that you take it up on your own risk. If you plan to buy travel insurance with Citibank, you’ll have to pay a premium however as it is expensive and the coverage doesn’t quite fit what you pay for but if good emergency assistance is your top priority, then you might find Citibank travel insurance worth your money.

    Get $300 limit on delays, $300 for missed connections and another $500 for diversions

    FWD Travel Insurance First / FWD Singapore

    The FWD policy wording doesn’t mention any sporting exclusions, with the exception of competitive sports and hiking/trekking above 3,000m. Considering that most outdoor activities are covered, their lowest tier plan (Premium) is very good value for money. For the basic plan, FWD Premium has quite a high trip cancellation claim limit of $7,500 which applies for haze-related cancellation or infectious diseases like Zika and dengue too. Where FWD loses out is in the below-average travel inconvenience benefits. For example, for travel delays, you get $300 limit on delays, another $300 for missed connections and another $500 for “diversions”. It is very hard to claim the full benefit.
