What else do I need to think about if I’m going to Thailand?
Thailand is filled with adventures for the taking but you’ll need to make sure you’ve done the prep work – but there’s one thing we can definitely help you with and that’s finding your Thailand travel insurance. All you need to do is tell us when you plan to leave and any other specific things you think you’ll need cover for. We’ll then search through our trusted travel insurance providers to find the best fit for you. In the meantime, we’ve put together this checklist to get the prep work on its way.
Visa: If you have a British passport and you’re staying for no more than 30 days, then you won’t need a visa. Anything more than 30 days and you’ll need to apply for one.
Currency: The Thai aht is the official currency (B). You can use your credit or debit card at good hotels and in some of the more upmarket restaurants and shops but surcharges to use them can be high.
Vaccines: You should go and see your doctor at least four weeks before you go away, they’ll be able to inform you of any precautions or vaccinations you may need. You might be advised to have some vaccines such as Hepatitis A, Tetanus and Typhoid which are usually free on the NHS.
Language: Thai is the official language but many Thais will have a smattering of English.
Tipping: Tipping isn’t expected but it is of course much appreciated.
Now that you’re equipped with the facts, it’s time to get the right Thailand travel insurance policy just for you. We search from dozens of suppliers so we’re confident we can find you the right cover for the best price, leaving you with a bit more cash.
