Travel Health Insurance

Travel Health Insurance

Travel Health Insurance bridges the gap between basic travel insurance and the International Health Insurance we generally recommend for expats. Travel Health Insurance will give you better health coverage – higher spending limits, larger geographic areas, more types of medical care, broader choices of doctors – than travel insurance.

For most, Travel Health Insurance is only a temporary solution. If you plan to stay in Southeast Asia for roughly a year or more, we can help you find a proper International Health Insurance policy by clicking here.

If Travel Health Insurance meets your needs, we recommend the following providers. Please note that Tenzing doesn’t sell or service the Travel Health Insurance policies on this page.

Frequently asked questions

Travel health insurance should not be confused with travel insurance. There are many similarities. Travel insurance covers costs associated with lost luggage, travel delays, unexpected cancellations, and a limited amount of emergency medical procedures. Travel health insurance covers a wider range of medical-related issues with a much higher annual coverage limit. Travel health insurance can be thought of as an expansion of typical travel insurance.


Consider what you want covered -- just accidents? Just hospitalization? Then find a policy that covers those situations within your budget.
Travel health insurance covers a wide range of medical-related services and treatments. Unlike regular travel insurance, which may only cover lost or stolen baggage, travel health insurance offers more expansive coverage that includes health and emergency services.

Travel health insurance is recommended for short or prolonged stays away from home or if you plan to travel to locations with more elevated risks such as natural disasters or airborne infections. Plans will depend on the length of stay, amongst other factors, but individuals and group plans can be tailored to cover a variety of needs. Typical travel health insurance covers medical evacuations, emergency visits, dental care, medicine and doctor visits, and emergency transport to your country of origin.
Travel health insurance costs depend on many factors but, put simply, the price is up to you. While there are many budget options that cover basic mishaps such as lost luggage or cancelled flights, travel health insurance costs can increase depending on your chosen plan and what’s included in your specific policy.

For example, add-ons such as dental or certain types of medical coverage will result in increased costs. Additionally, the age of enrollees and number of dependents included in the plan can also dramatically affect premiums and total costs. However, most elements of travel health insurance plans are configurable and can be tailored to suit a variety of needs and medical-related issues.
The coronavirus pandemic has reshaped the world and life as we know it and has affected travel in almost every country around the globe. As air and land travel begin to return to pre-Covid levels, travelers eager to hit the road will have countless questions regarding posed risks, testing, and proof of safe travel.

This will undoubtedly lead to the question, does travel health insurance cover coronavirus?

The answer is yes.

Travel health insurance purchased through Tenzing will cover costs associated with coronavirus treatment, with some exclusions.
