Asia Travel Insurance

From the bright lights of Tokyo at night to the beautiful beaches of Thailand, Asia has a lot to offer everyone, from the avid backpacker to the more casual traveller. Asia is a particularly popular travel destination for young backpackers who are looking to immerse themselves in new and intriguing cultures, due to the low cost of finding accomodation and sustenance across much of Asia. While many travellers visit South-East Asia, which includes countries such as Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, across other areas of Asia, there is much to attract travellers, from the ancient wonders of China to the fantastic hiking experiences in Mongolia.

Asia Travel Insurance

Some of the most exotic locations in the world are found in Asia. This continent includes exciting places such as India, China, Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, and Vietnam. One of the nice things about travelling to this part of the world is that it can be very affordable. It is possible to stay in places like the Thai islands for a long time on a relatively small budget. The one expense that you will not want to skimp on, though, is travel insurance. Things can go wrong on this type of trip, and if it does, you will want to be covered.

Travel Safety in Asia

The majority of people who travel to Asia will never experience any problems. It is important to understand, though, that there are many parts of the continent that would be considered more dangerous than the UK. It is also important to keep in mind, that if people get sick in this part of the world they will normally have to pay for their own medical expenses. In fact, some Asian countries will be unwilling to offer anything more than the most basic care (if that) unless they are confident that the person has the ability to pay.

The team at Down Under Travel Insurance understands the risks involved in this type of trip, and we work hard to make sure that our policies are suitable. The types of things that are covered by this type of insurance include:

  • Coverage for cancellation, curtailment & trip interruption
  • Repatriation back to the UK if required
  • Hospital and medical expenses
  • Personal belongings/luggage
  • Delay of luggage arrival – you will be able to claim after a delay of more than 12 hours
  • Loss of money or passport
  • Personal liability insurance
  • The policy will also cover you in the event of hijack

The Down Under Travel Insurance also covers many other eventualities and provides additional types of coverage for things like winter sports.

Protect Yourself with Travel Insurance to Asia

The main reason for buying travel insurance is so you will be covered in case things go wrong, but there is also another important reason for doing this – peace of mind. Even if you do not need to make a claim, you will still benefit from the reassurance of knowing that you have done the sensible thing. Lack of appropriate insurance can mean that we waste a good deal of time worrying when we should be enjoying ourselves.
It is also important to keep in mind that we only need to ever make a claim on one insurance policy for it to make all of our previous purchases worthwhile. Travelling to somewhere like Asia without this type of policy can be considered reckless, and it is definitely not recommended.
