What kind of travel insurance could I need for the Philippines?
The type of cover you need for the Philippines depends on the length of your stay and the activities you’ve got planned. If you’re intending to do little more than strolling along one of the country’s many beaches, then basic travel insurance should offer the cover you need. But if you’re planning water sports, such as scuba diving, you’ll probably need to think about extra cover such as water sports travel insurance.
The Philippines occasionally suffers from natural disasters, including earthquakes and typhoons. With this in mind, you might want to look into a specialist policy that offers insurance cover for these types of infrequent events.
Always check what’s covered by a travel insurance policy before you buy it. If you need to change your plans while you’re away, contact your insurance provider to see if you can amend your policy and get extra cover.
