  • Destination Thailand: Insurance Stickies

    Filed Under: Blogging

Thailand is indeed an amazing place that provides amazing value for money. With the right kind of travel insurance, you can set your worries aside and immerse yourself in the culture and natural beauty that Thailand is known for.

However, Thailand is also known for another kind of beauty: the female kind. Sex tourism forms a large part of the country’s attraction to tourists, especially males. While illegal in Thailand, prostitution is regulated by the government to a large extent.

Now, one thing to remember is that your international travel insurance will not cover sexually transmitted diseases, and so, if you have a problem after visiting a “lady” in Thailand, the treatment will not be covered under your plan.

In Thailand, prostitution is also an illegal activity, and your policy will not cover any condition that arises out of your indulging in illegal activity as well. So, there’s a double whammy that prevents you from getting reimbursed if, unfortunately, you contract a disease from a “lady” in Thailand. So remember that it is better to play it safe than be sorry.

Travel tip: Obvious, but it probably needs to be repeated anyway. Always, always insist on using a condom.
