Why do I need travel insurance for Thailand?


Fascinating experiences await American travelers in Thailand thanks to the Asian destination’s rich culture, diverse landscapes, and warm hospitality. But, with an exciting journey on the horizon, it’s worth looking into shielding your wallet from unexpected costs with travel insurance for Thailand.

Why? Regardless of how thorough your planning process is, surprises can always pop up when you’re exploring Southeast Asia.
