Published

 on 

As an expat living in Thailand, finding the best insurance company can be difficult. This is because the insurance industry in Thailand is big. Besides local and offshore insurance companies, banks also offer insurance.

Insurance is a business of trust. When you buy insurance, you need to make sure that the insurance company will actually pay your claims. Therefore, they need to have both a good reputation and financial stability. In addition to their reputation, you also have to make sure that the policies they offer can fit your needs and budget. Therefore, to help you find the right match, we’ve compiled a list of the 5 best insurance companies for expats in Thailand.

The 5 Best Insurance Companies for Expats in Thailand

Of course, there is no single-best insurance company in Thailand. However, these companies are reputable and offer a wide range of policy options.

1. Cigna Global

If you are looking for a more affordable international insurance company in Thailand, you can consider Cigna Global. Although they are comparably cheaper, they do provide some really great insurance options and excellent customer service. They offer a modular plan design, which allows you to tailor the plan to your needs and budget by picking and choosing different modules.

Near the end of last year, they introduced Cigna Global Health Thailand, which is specifically designed for expatriates and Thai nationals who reside in Thailand.
