Check the small print on insurance cover, travellers to Thailand are warned

Travellers are being urged to check the small print on their insurance cover before heading to Thailand

Travellers should check their travel insurance covers claims for hospitalisation and/or other related quarantine in the event they test positive for COVID19 while in Thailand, the Tourism Authority has said.

Travellers in Thailand could also face quarantine or hospitalisation even if they test negative.

Thailand’s public health regulations state that people who have been in close contact with someone who tests positive are also deemed to be ‘high risk’.

For travellers, if a passenger they sat next to on a plane or someone they shared a hotel room with, test positive, then they can also be put in quarantine or hospitalised even though they themselves have not recorded a positive test.
