What We Cover - Our Thailand Travel Insurance Policy

Our travel insurance policy covers essentials such as medical expenses, personal money / documents, baggage, travel delay and more. You will also see a list of benefits and cover levels in our online travel insurance quote process.

Common Travel Insurance Claims Thailand

Common claims for Thailand are very similar to those of Australians who travel to Bali. We recommend doing some smart pre-travel planning, using common sense, obeying local laws and regulations and just being aware that you’re in a foreign country where things might work differently from home. Common claims include;

  • Food poisoning and gastro
  • Motorbike and scooter accidents
  • Water sports: scuba and snorkelling accidents
  • Theft and loss of valuables; cameras, phones, personal travel docs and money
  • Travel delay

Columbus Direct aims to provide the best value policy for your next Thai holiday. If you’re planning a trip this year, get peace of mind.
