Through PolicyStreet travel insurance becomes simple, easy and affordable to obtain. What do we claim that?
Growing up, we are so used of seeing our parents – the baby boomers – buying say travel insurance from an insurance agent promoting face to face, or maybe go ahead and buy the insurance at their respective physical company or representative placed in all parts of Malaysia. Tricky part is, they are not always available everywhere, and at any time. So, you probably were hoping that somehow someone would come up with an online insurance company fit for a millenial’s ease of access. Well, we heard you, and we exist thanks to you.
PolicyStreet is an online Insurtech company – wait, hold up! What’s Insurtech? Well, according to investopedia.com, Insurtech refers to the use of technology innovations designed to squeeze out savings and efficiency from the current insurance industry model.

In this latest article, we will show you how we are different from other traditional insurance agents and how we live up to our slogans of “Getting insurance is now Simpler, Easier & Affordable.” We will take PolicyStreet travel insurance as an example.

Policies bought with traditional insurance agents are usually riddled with insurance jargon which might be a nuisance for a normal John and Jane Doe. What we mean is, not everyone can understand the terms as well as an agent themselves. This could be a problem as people don’t understand what they get themselves into, in worst case scenario for an insurance agent – either traditional or modern – people won’t buy their products because they lack of understanding of the products itself.
