Travel Insurance for Stays in Japan

Prepare properly your trip to Japan

Featured   Jun 30, 2016

That's it! You just booked your stay in Japan. You start looking at your itinerary and your upcoming activities... Then, comes the moment when you wonder about whether or not you are insured in case something happens at the other end of the world.

What if I have a bicycle accident in Japan? Will my expenses be covered? What if my luggage is stolen?

Why insurance?

During a trip abroad, it’s always strongly recommended to subscribe to a travel insurance. Especially in Japan where medical costs are very expensive!Loss of identity papers, medical expenses further to an accident or a disease, repatriation... All these inconveniences (that we wouldn't wish to anyone!) can be easily taken care of and quickly forgotten if you purchase a travel insurance when preparing your stay in Japan.

It’s unfortunately not always easy to choose which travel insurance due to the large number of offers available and different terms and conditions.

What to look for?

To make a choice, several criteria must be primarily taken into account:

  • Reimbursement of medical expenses (don't forget to keep your receipts for reimbursement!)
  • Repatriation-assistance 24/24
  • Luggage insurance (in case of theft or damage by a professional transporter)
  • Civil liability
  • Travel Assistance (advance on bail, legal expenses, research and rescue expenses, early return of the insured...)

The price of these travel insurances usually varies depending on your age, the length of stay and the geographical area.
