Secure Your Trip to Thailand with the Right Travel Cover

From verdant valleys and isolated tropical islands to glamorous coastlines and cities, Thailand is a wanderer’s dream. This southeast Asian country has become an enigma for backpackers and luxury travellers, not just because of the attractions but also because of its modern tourist infrastructure and safe, friendly reputation. Your trip to Thailand can be a life-changing experience if you keep some basic tips in mind starting from prior arrangements for bookings and accommodation to buying travel insurance for Thailand.

No matter how well-planned your trip is, unforeseen emergencies can strike anytime to ruin the travel excitement. That’s where travel insurance comes into play.

Care Health Insurance plans brings you a travel insurance plan that offers much-needed protection during any medical or non-medical exigency abroad. From immediate cashless hospitalisation to reimbursement for medical and non-medical emergencies such as loss of checked-in baggage, trip delay/cancellation, and assistance in case of loss of passport, the policy will cover you for all.

When Can Travel Insurance for Thailand be Helpful?

Certain apprehensions are bound to come with a trip abroad. However, if you have secured your trip with travel insurance for Thailand, you can enjoy your trip worry-free. Here are a few unprecedented encounters where you would not have to worry if you had bought travel insurance beforehand.

  • Costly Medical Expenses: Thailand is more expensive than India. Moreover, being hospitalised during your trip would be the last thing you want to experience. These unplanned expenses during your travel can derail your finances. However, you would not have to worry about hospitalisation expenses if you have covered yourself with the right travel insurance plan for Thailand.
  • A missing passport or checked-in luggage: Losing your passport or one of your baggage in Thailand is unfortunate. The costs of retrieving the items at the airport or the local police can drain your budget. However, by buying a travel insurance plan from Care Health Insurance, you can rest assured of the expenses and focus on retrieving your belongings.
  • Dental Care Needs: Suppose you encounter a fall that has affected your denture during your trip to Thailand. In such a case, your travel insurance can indemnify any emergency dental treatment.
  • Trip Cancellations: Any unprecedented trip cancellations can derail your budget. The non-refundable cancellations of flight tickets and other pre-bookings can leave a hole in your pocket if you do not have a travel insurance plan. However, if you have one, you do not have to worry about trip cancellations due to specified situations.
  • Repatriation of Mortal Remains: An unfortunate accident during the trip may lead to the death. In such a case, your travel insurance can help by reimbursing your costs of carrying the mortal remains of the deceased back home.
