However, with unforeseen medical expenses, delayed flights and the ever-present threat of a Godzilla attack, there’s a lot that can go wrong on a holiday to this beautiful island country. (Okay, we made that Godzilla bit up.) We've got cover available with travel insurance for Japan!

Japan travel insurance FAQs.

Am I covered for snow sports activities?

If you plan to doing any snow sports activities make sure you select the 'Snow sports cover' option for an additional premium when purchasing your policy, otherwise you won't have cover for any event that arises out of participating in these activities.

Am I covered for natural disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons and tsunamis?

There is cover for natural disasters for cancellation costs (if you can't go on your trip) and additional expenses (if you get stuck whilst over there and need to arrange alternative transport and accommodation). To have cover, you must have purchased your policy before it is a known event that you are aware of, or that has been reported in the mass media.

What if my stuff gets lost or stolen during my trip?

A TID policy covers you for permanently lost, stolen or even damaged luggage and personal effects. Details on cover can be found here.
