Why do I need travel insurance in Vietnam?

Beautiful lush green countryside, historical colonial architecture and some of the world’s best street food. It’s little wonder why Vietnam has become a must-visit destination for travelers from around the globe. However, with pickpocketing, moped accidents and Pho-related mishaps, there are some cautionary ‘what ifs’ that could happen while on your trip. We've got travel insurance available for travelling to Vietnam.

Vietnam travel insurance FAQs

Am I covered for driving a Motorbike with an International Driver's license?

In Vietnam, driving licenses are mandatory for motorcycles over 50cc. However only Vietnamese licenses are legally accepted for drivers. You cannot obtain a Vietnamese license on a tourist visa, only if you have a business or work permit visa. Therefore, cover is not available if you are driving a motorcycle on the wrong licence. Despite this, cover is available if an event occurs and you’re riding a motorbike as a passenger, wearing a helmet and you’re not intoxicated.

I am worried about food poisoning, what do we do if this happens ?

We have a 24/7 emergency assistance team who can help you if this event does happen.

There are many scams in Vietnam such as rental equipment and fake tours, do these need to be reported to police?

If theft occurs on your trip, this should be reported to the police. You can also contact our emergency assistance team to advise of the situation.

Am I covered for water activities such as jet skiing or scuba diving? 

TID can cover you if you’re injured whilst participating in sports and activities. This includes water activities, such as jet skiing and scuba diving (as long as you obtain a water diving license or you’re diving under licensed instruction). For the full details including exclusions check out this page.

Am I covered for natural disasters?

As long as you purchase your policy prior to it being a known event, there is cover for out-of-pocket expenses, such as pre-paid airfares and accommodation, should you have no alternative but to cancel your trip. Alternatively if you’re prevented from travelling and choose to rearrange your holiday to travel at another time or to a different destination, there is cover available so long as the cost of rearranging is less than the cost of cancelling the trip entirely.
