Vietnam Travel Insurance
Vietnam is claimed as one of the safest holiday destinations in South-East Asia. Families can travel comfortably and with peace knowing that the population is friendly, the rate of crime is comparatively low and even taking a night walk is safe and secure.
Yet, it is wise to have a passable travel insurance in place so that you can enjoy the stress-free journey. Even if you’re a student, travel insurance is mandatory and you should possess a best cover or policy that you can afford. In short, never compromise your safety for the sake of few dollars.
With this being said, there are certain incidence of trivial theft that is likely to spoil your holiday if you lack taking proper precautions.
In certain large cities, particularly in Ho Chi Minh City, certain cases of pickpocketing, and drive-by bag snatchings have been recently reported. Owing to this reason, it is essential you avoid wearing expensive jewellery, or carrying much cash when walking the streets.
On the other hand, health care in rural areas is a basic aspect. Ensure you have arranged an all-inclusive medical and travel insurance before you travel to Vietnam. Also, take the utmost care with respect to food and drinking water while travelling.
Vietnam’s mode of transport is motorbike. But visitors require a Vietnamese driving license. However, public transport like taxi and bus services are quite common, rail travel in Vietnam is generally considered safe. Coastal travellers must be watchful as piracy is common.
Keep an eye on the weather reports and plan your travel and what travel insurance cover you’ll need accordingly. The climate of Vietnam fluctuates from one region to another. Monsoon, typhoon, cyclone and flooding are common. For the best balance, have a proper travel insurance cover.
In all, travelling to Vietnam is an exhilarating and safe experience if you are insured. No need to worry and by taking simple precautions you’re sure to have an unforgettable holiday.
