Why You Need Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance ThailandWe all tend to think it will never happen to us and basic medical care in South East Asia is cheap. The truth is accidents can happen to all of us and basic medical care is cheap but basic is the keyword here.

If you were to brake your arm playing sport, were involved in a road accident or contracted Dengue Fever would you be covered then? The cost of medical care can soon start to skyrocket leaving you without the care you desperately need or with bills that quickly mount up to tens of thousands of dollars.

Thailand has some of the most dangerous roads in Asia with a reported 10,000+ deaths and over 110,000 accidents per year.


We’ve partnered up with World Nomads Travel Insurance.

We like World Nomads because not only do they offer very competitive premium rates for travel insurance but they also have superb customer care, a great philanthropy ethic that gives back to the communities we travel in and free language guides.

    Basically travel insurance is designed to protect you against a number of situations, though not all travel insurance plans are the same. Some will cover things such as theft whilst others will cover accident or illness. So it is important that you know exactly what your insurance covers if you do get it.
