Things to Keep in Mind Before Buying China Travel Insurance

When selecting travel insurance for China or any southeast Asian destination of your choice, you must ensure that the plan suits your requirements. Here are the factors to be considered:

  • Nature of the Trip: Frequent fliers should go for annual plans; others should go for a single trip insurance plan.
  • Trip Duration: The shorter the trip, the lower will be the premium based on the number of days spent in China.
  • Medical History: If you have any serious ailment, ensure that the policy covers it.
  • Check the Coverage: Take a close look at the inclusions to know what is covered in the policy. The overseas China travel insurance plan has maximum benefits that can be availed at an affordable premium.
  • Review the Exclusions: While claiming your policy during an emergency, you might not want to be surprised to know that your travel plan does not cover certain expenses you assumed it would. Hence, read the exclusion and plan your budget.
