Travel Necessities: Travel Insurance in Bangkok

Bangkok is one of the great Asian cities. The Venice of the East is known for its wonderful food, fantastic shopping and the spectacular palaces and temples that dot the city. Yet as with travelling to any large city certain precautions are a must. The most important of these is travel insurance. Travel insurance will not only grant you the peace of mind in case of misadventures, but will also guard against personal liability for cost resulting from medical treatment and associated costs.

Personal Safety

Bangkok is a relatively safe city, but petty crime and burglary is a very real risk. Travellers risk losing personal documents, such as passports, which must be carried at all times. If a traveller is unable to provide such identification documents they may be subject to arrest. The loss of the personal possessions and baggage is a real risk.

Anti-government Protests

Regular anti-government protests take place in Bangkok. These protests should be avoided by tourists due to the risk of violence. In the aftermath of the March 2010 protests the city has been relatively stable but the political situation in general remains volatile across the rest of the country. As recently as October 2010 the main international airport in Bangkok has been closed due to protests.

Swine Flu & Avian Influenza.

The Thai government has issued warnings of cases of swine flu and avian influenza within Bangkok. The chances of contracting these rare strains is relatively low if one takes extra precautions such as avoiding live animal markets. The risk of a pandemic outbreak is similarly low but if such an outbreak does occur the expense of medical treatment and repatriation may be significant. Before travelling make sure your vaccinations are up to date and you hold comprehensive medical insurance. Hospitals in Thailand often require proof of your ability to pay for prior to treatment.
