Travel insurance for Thailand
From the tropical beaches of Phuket to the bustling streets of Bangkok, Thailand has so much to offer to travellers of all tastes. The country enjoys a reputation for serene landscapes and exciting cities in equal measure, and has long been one of Southeast Asia’s most popular travel destinations.
What does my insurance cover in Thailand?
Our award-winning TravelCare policy provides affordable, comprehensive cover for your international holiday. When you protect yourself with TravelCare, you also gain access to our worldwide emergency assistance team, who offer round-the-clock advice 365 days of the year.
Our comprehensive TravelCare insurance includes cover for:
- Unlimited medical and evacuation expenses that arise due to unexpected events while on your journey
- Cancellation fees and lost deposits – increase your cover depending on the cost of your journey
- Damaged or lost baggage
- Personal items if they are stolen or damaged
- Rental car excess should you have an accident
- Emergency dental treatment
- Funeral costs
Cover for natural disasters
Unfortunately, Thailand is no stranger to devastating natural events, like the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004 that killed thousands. More recently, serious flash flooding and typhoons have claimed the lives of thousands more, including international travellers.
You must make sure it’s still safe to travel to your destinations by checking for travel advisories on the Smartraveller.gov.au website. You need to check this when you buy your insurance, again before you start your journey, and before leaving for each new destination.
Your policy may be affected if the travel advisory on the Smartraveller.gov.au website is ‘Do not travel’ or ‘Reconsider your need to travel’.
Cover for laptops, phones and cameras
Valuable electronics are common victims of misadventure overseas. Whether it’s being stung by a cunning thief in a Bangkok market, or suffering an unexpected slip into the resort pool, your electronics can face danger from all sides.
Our TravelCare policy covers you for lost, stolen or damaged personal items, so you can focus on enjoying your holiday knowing that you’re protected from the unexpected.
