Travel insurance scheme for tourists

Every visitor to Thailand should make sure they have travel insurance to cover their stay. Hopefully you’ll never have to use it but it’s important to be prepared, just in case.

Most people arrange their insurance at home before they leave but for those who are still shopping around, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has just launched a new insurance scheme for visitors, called the “Thailand Travel Shield”. The insurance policies can be purchased online and cover visits of up to 60 days. The packages start from just 650 Baht and cover medical expenses, trip cancellation, baggage delay and much more.

When choosing your travel insurance it’s a good idea to compare a few different policies and companies to help you decide which is the best value for money and suits your needs. Ask yourself what sort of activities you plan to do overseas and make sure your chosen plan covers them. As with any insurance policy, be sure to read the fine print and exclusions carefully.

Knowing that you’re covered should something unexpected happen will give you peace of mind during your time here. With your travel insurance sorted you can just relax and enjoy your holiday in paradise!
