Hi there! I'm trying ot buy my travel insurance and jsut wondered if anyone had used and particular companies that were good or bad? I know Travelfish recommends Nomad, and they seem pretty good, but very comprehensive, I guess I'm looking for something a little cheaper but that still covers what I need. I'm from the UK and am considering INsure and Go and also but I wondered if anyone had any experience with claiming with either of these. There seem to be sooo many different ...

Travel insurance and visas

Posted by mic59 on 2/8/2008 at 14:27

I have just been checking the nomads travel insurance on this site against the policy I got from my travel agent. Don't, whatever you do, get the insurance from the agent. Mine is $268 for 40 days and the nomads one is $164. That $104 works out at an extra $THB85 per day, meaning a better guesthouse or 2 extra meals a day. The same goes for extended visas. If you can, try and extend your visa when you are in Thailand by skipping to Laos, Cambodia or Malaysia for a day while you are in Thailand. ...

UK: Warning over GAP year insurance...

Posted by tails101 on 29/6/2008 at 15:18

Making the news in the UK at the moment is the case of a 19 y/o who was injured whilst riding a moped in Vietnam. He was wearing a helmet and had a full UK driving licence but not a full UK motorbike licence and so the insurers wouldn't pay out. This clause was apparently contained in page 13 of a 64 page T&C document. It cost his Dad £25 000 to fly him home! The policy was issued by one of the UK's biggest chemist chains who actually quoted the family £85 000 to fly him home. Apparentl ...

I see that World Nomads will insure me for 30€ but is that covering everything? It seems really low for 2 weeks in Thailand. Any advice for good insurance. I wont be skydiving or swimming with sharks, just the usual trekking maybe an elephant ride and a party or 2 Thank you ...

Travel insurance for Thailand.

Posted by marineboy on 2/12/2007 at 05:21

Travel insurance is only as good as the day you actually try to use it, otherwise its just a comforting piece of paper. I have tried in the past to get "cheap" insurance, then to find its worthless or very difficult to claim when something does wrong! Have you claimed a bigish sum from a partiular British insurance company recently and would you recommend them to me? ONLY if you claimed and received money! ...

Travel Insurance

Posted by Danka on 15/6/2006 at 19:41

I just saw the ad on the members' page for World Nomads travel insurance. Looking at their website I realised you can't take out insurance with them if you don't live in the UK, AUS, NZ or US. I live in Ireland - can anyone recommend cheap travel insurance for me? I am covered for health insurance and am really only looking for luggage (camera, iPod, etc). Does this make sense? ...
