    Looking for affordable yet quality Thailand travel insurance? Any time in your travel planning is a good time to purchase travel insurance, but the best time is when you purchase your flights or your first travel-related expense.

    If you should need to cancel, i.e. from illness, before you purchase your travel insurance, you won’t be eligible to make a claim. That’s why its best to purchase travel insurance once you have made travel-related purchases.

    Thailand Travel Insurance Tips

    The flight to Thailand is not particularly long from Australia, however, with any flight, it’s wise to get up and stretch a bit. Always drink plenty of water to stay hydrated as the humidity when you get off the plane is intense and can take a while to get used to. The last thing you want is to arrive in hot and humid Thailand already dehydrated. 

    Thailand is an exotic country and is the land of the unexpected. There’s always excitement around the corner, from an ardent elephant to a tuk-tuk speeding down a highway. Always be wary of your surroundings when travelling through this nation, life runs differently in Thailand than to Australia, and not only life, the laws and customs are very different as well. Don’t act too boldly, and always be respectful of the local customs and traditions.
