referring to the clause below, if I say I'll travel to Thailand which is technically under state of martial law, does it mean that in an event we need medical assistance from sickness or injury, we are not covered? My fellow nomads, what is your understanding on this statement? I have contacted Customer Support and will post their response here.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THE INSURANCE (GENERAL EXCLUSIONS)
m. treatment for sickness or injury directly or indirectly caused if you actively engage in, participate in or choose to go to a region where there is: a war, invasion, acts of a foreign enemy, hostilities (whether war has been declared or not), civil war, terrorist acts, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, civil commotion, military or usurped power, martial law, riots or the acts of any lawfully constituted authority, or army, naval or air service operations (whether war has been declared or not),
I came here to purchase some insurance, However, I thought it would be futile.
So, it seems as we 'choose to go' to a region with Martial Law, insurance for traveling to Thailand is not covered at the current time.
It would therefore be a waste of money buying it from World Nomads.
I read today the Tourism Authority of Thailand (which is aware of the insurance issues for travelers right now) has teamed up with insurance companies and offer insurance for 650Baht that will cover 1 million baht. You must contact one of their offices abroad. What that includes, I don't know.
If they sold this at the airport, they would generate more sales.

We have an article for this. Please read this carefully

Actually, if you bother to read the article, you'll see that yes you are covered for things that happen as part of the everyday, particularly medical, but not when they are related to the military coup.
So no, you aren't on your own.
And perhaps if you saw what we get to see you might not be so quick to suggest skipping the insurance. about 5 years ago
It's the searching without any kind of warrants 'AT ALL' which can be conducted 'AT WILL' by the 'OFFICER' that the tourists should be worried about . It never ends well ... not cheap and no receipt - especially the 'Fa-Rang' Westerner. over 4 years agoAnswered by Take care ! via WorldNomads.com
