Thailand Travel Insurance
Thailand Travel Insurance- Land of Smiles & Unrest
Whether you’ve booked your flight, made reservations at the hotel, got someone to bring in the mail or watch the dogs, what about travel insurance?
Thailand is basically known for being a bargain for westerners. Cheap clothes, food, hotels, entertainment, even the hospitals and clinics are affordable as compared to the west and with few of the best doctors in the world. Conflicting to what some people may believe Thailand has excellent health care. Though Thailand is cheaper than the west in almost every aspect if you land up in the hospital for a week or two it’s likely going to cost you and it will be more than you ever bargained for.
Thailand travel insurance is certainly worth it if something major comes up. For a two-week trip, most travel insurance will cost you less than a few hundred dollars, however, the benefit to your hip pocket if you require major medical and being flown to your home country if it’s determined that’s the best place for you would be massive! Let alone the lost flights, tours and fun you have missed out on.
A Thailand travel insurance policy is also likely to cover trip cancellations, lost luggage and a change in travel plans based on what options you choose.
The flight to Thailand is not a particularly long flight from Australia, however, it wise to stretch and move around every couple of hours during the flight. Also, make sure you load up on water on the flight and when you arrive because the heat and humidity will hit you immediately especially if you coming from a cooler climate like Melbourne or Hobart.
In Thailand, there’s always something unexpected and it could be anything from an ardent elephant, a motorcycle taxi speeding at you or a host of other things waiting for you around the next corner. Make sure you are aware of your surroundings as life runs a little bit different in Thailand in comparison to Australia.
