Thailand Travel Shield (travel insurance)

Recommended Posts

I have never purchased travel insurance for my previous trips to SE Asia. I am considering this policy for an upcoming family trip to LOS in October. What are your opinions on this or can you recommend a better one for a similar price? Thanks for any feedback

Tourism Authority of Thailand has cooperated with top non-life insurers ; Muang Thai Insurance, Chao Phaya Insurance, Siam City Insurance and Krungthai Panich Insurance gladly to offer “special travel insurance exclusively for foreign tourists” who will travel to Thailand in the form of online insurance which is convenient and provides instant coverage. Additionally, after making online payment, the insurance policy will be sent to the insured’s e-mail immediately. Premium starts from 650 Baht only and highest sum insured is 1,000,000 Baht with full coverage including accident, trip cancellation, loss or damage of baggage / personal belongings, accommodation fees in case the airport is being closed, 24-hour emergency assistance by Allianz Global Assistance.

Can you get coverage for Thailand due to the political situation? I have read this voids some policies.

This policy is offered by the Travel Authority of Thailand so I would assume so...but TIT

It seems very expensive to me.

 

The best thing to do is search google for (annual) travel insurance policies and you should find some sites that allow you to compare policies.

Looks just like any standard travel insurance policy to me. But annual options look more expensive than what I would expect to pay.

1million baht medical coverage is not a lot if you have a serious accident. It wouldn't be enough for a medical flight home I dont think. I bought Insurance in UK for £25 (1300B)  for 2 week trip that gives £10mill accident cover. Thats about 540,000,000 baht!

 

Also, you're probably going to make any claims on your insurance when you get home. Want to be dealing with a Thai insurance company from abroad? I think it's best to get your travel insurance in your home country, will be less hassle.

Next trip Aug 31-Sep13, theme: try more freelancers, get dirty! Note to self: TAKE MORE PHOTOS!!!

Were are you from? As a single guy I just pick up a basic policy from Australia Post that costs 5 dollars a day and covers my needs... that seems fairly cheap for mine.

I go with BUPA.

 

Reading stories on here from before, BUPA seems like less hassle compared to other insurances where you have to pay upfront or a huge deposit, whereas with BUPA there's name recognition and things go much smoother.

I have contacted them and am awaiting a reply.

I always buy travel insurance and simply cannot understand why anyone would not!

After spending several thousand bucks on a trip, what is a hundred or so bucks??

It cost me $145 can. For 2 months last year.

Does BUPA actually pay upfront? I have tried a couple insurance policies on my trips but it's very confusing as to whether they pay upfront or just reimburse? Are there any policies anywhere that cost you nothing out of pocket upfront except maybe a deductible? I would hate to have a large medical bill and not have enough baht to initially cover it.

I've never understood the reasoning of travel insurance.  Nearly everything they cover, I'm already covered in some form or another and with much better coverage.  And if I'm not covered, it's not really important or anything of value anyway.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
