Why do I need travel insurance for Philippines vacations?


With turquoise waters, powdery white-sand beaches, lush jungles, and sprawling cities, the Philippines is as diverse as it is captivating. But before landing at the airport in Manila, make sure you think about getting travel insurance for the Philippines.

Why? Travel insurance can come to your aid if something unanticipated comes up during your journey. For example, during your travels in Asia, you could break an arm at the beach in Boracay or misplace your bag while visiting Magellan’s Cross.

If you’re suddenly faced with an unexpected travel issue while abroad, Travelex travel insurance for the Philippines can help with getting your health and unforeseen spending back on track.
