Comprehensive cover when travelling to Thailand

Medical expenses can be expensive in Thailand. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) revealed that it cost one UK holidaymaker £137,000 to treat a fractured spine resulting from a bathroom fall in Thailand, including repatriation to the UK.

As of March 2020, Travel Insurance became compulsory for visitors wishing to travel to Thailand. This requirement ensures that tourists can cover the costs for any emergency medical care while on holiday.

AllClear offers emergency medical expenses cover up to £15,000,000 per person and includes repatriation to the UK as standard.

Many are making the most of their travel opportunities since exotic locations such as Thailand have begun welcoming tourists back. At least 1 in 23 of those we surveyed over the age of 56 are hoping to go away 2-3 times in the next twelve months. So, what’s the most important thing to consider when planning post-pandemic trips?

Comprehensive travel insurance with Covid cover included will provide you with the protection and peace of mind you deserve.

CEO of AllClear Travel, Chris Rolland, said: “At AllClear, we offer Superior rated Covid Cover, as the safety of our customer is of the utmost importance. We want to provide all those who wish to travel the confidence to do so no matter their age or medical conditions.”

Before setting off to explore Thailand, we recommend that you:

  • Buy quality Travel Insurance that includes enhanced COVID-19 cover.

Medical emergency expenses – covers you for medical bills for any medical emergencies you may experience while on holiday.

Travel delay and transport disruption – covers costs incurred due to transport delays.
