Managing Your Pre-Trip Preparations with Changi Recommends – Travel Insurance and Overseas Wi-Fi Service Rental22 October, 2015
Pre-trip preparations from itinerary planning to packing bags, can be quite tiring. There are many other nitty gritty details like buying travel insurance and renting overseas Wi-Fi router services to manage. Thus, I am thankful that there is at least a one-stop portal for me to manage the latter.
I have been renting overseas Wi-Fi routers from Changi Recommends due to the ease of collection and return of the router at Changi Airport and affordable overseas Wi-Fi service rental rates. Thus, I was glad to hear that Changi Recommends had partnered with ACE Travel Insurance to offer travel insurance on Changi Recommends website.
