    Thailand Travel Shield.

    Thailand Travel Shield

    Kinda cheap 'travel' insurance tho they do offer an annual policy.. Notably missing is any mention of max trip duration or max time incountry for the annual.

    For those interested: details of coverage: https://www.siamcityinsurance.com/pd...ges_Detail.pdf
    Doesn't mention max duration for annual, as far as I can tell. I am curious about that too.

    Seems a good deal. I had real problems trying to get insurance to travel to Thailand when I was working in India. Uk companies wouldn't offer coverage because my point of embarkation was not the UK. The only company I found was World Nomads and they were very expensive....

    Am not sure 1,000,000 of cover would be sufficient in terms of a more catastrophic injury though..

    For a full year with a max of 60 days, it is not a good deal for me. I pay less and get better coverage from my Danish insurance.

    There is a 2 million version..

    And yes a mil is potentially a little short if there was a long stint in ICU, a coma or something, tho for the usual major injury surgery and recuperation.. Its kinda enough..

    What hospitals can you use?

    Hopefully they wont try to push you back to your home country like many travel insurers do (so they can wipe their hands on landing).

    EDIT: It's all interest only for me - too old. I also assume any long-term visa /extension would negate the "tourist" condition.
