“Thailand Travel Shield” insurance scheme to continue – TAT

Published

 on 

The TAT (Tourism Authority of Thailand) says that the Thailand Travel Shield insurance project will continue. The service provides online travel insurance for foreign tourists.

Reported in Phuketify, TAT Governor Yuthasak Supasorn, says that the TAT had initiated the creation of the Thailand Travel Shield project as a local insurance scheme alternative back in July 2014.

“This year marks the fifth anniversary of our travel insurance initiative to ensure that travelers enjoy the utmost travel experience during their visit to Thailand. The project forms part of a concerted effort by the Thai government, our team at TAT, relevant authorities and the private sector to ensure the safety and security of both tourists and residents.”

The announcement for the continuation of the five-year Thailand Travel Shield insurance project was made at a press conference in Bangkok last week.

Travelers planning a trip to Thailand can continue to buy the Thailand Travel Shield’s insurance coverage online HERE. Available in English and Chinese, the platform allows several payment methods including credit card, debit card, Union Pay and AliPay, with the insurance policy being sent instantly to the insured via email.

Visitors taking the Thailand Travel Shield insurance scheme will be covered once they pass through the immigration until they leave the kingdom. In case of emergency, they can take advantage of the 24 hour emergency assistance by Allianz Global Assistance with staff who are able to speak 40 languages plus an access to more than 300 hospitals across Thailand.

These travel insurance policies provide instant coverage up to the value of one million Baht for the packages starting at 400 Baht for 1-7 days, and up to the value of two million Baht for the packages starting at 950 Baht. The period of coverage ranges up to 60 days, but it can also cover visitors making annual trips to Thailand.
