    Default Travel Insurance Multi Trip

    When do I apply for a multi trip travel insurance for August 2020 travel.
    Because I've noticed online that you can apply between this month and June for a multi trip travel insurance.
    Has things changed? Because I thought that you could do it days before you travel!

    You can apply for insurance at anytime before departure, however you would not be covered for any event that occurs prior to you purchasing your policy (such as having to cancel because of illness or unemployment or if the hotel or airline goes belly-up).

    I,m with Nationwide who informed me today the virus is not covered which is no surprise. Not sure if we will be clear by then.

    I'm hoping it's all going to blow over by April, May.

    Just been advised that you /we will need a fit to fly certificate from the doctors before passengers can fly to Thailand.

    Is this because you have a health issue you are receiving treatment for?

    No. I believe it's compulsory.
    I've been given this information from a Thai friend.

    It is not a "fit to fly" as such it is a corona virus negative test certificate done within 72 hours of your departure.
    You will also need a $100.000 insurance policy specifically covering the virus.

    Failure to have both of these will result in the airline refusing to check you in.

    Not that it matters now as all foreigners have now been prohibited from entering the kingdom until further notice.

    My 6th May flight was cancelled yesterday by Thai Air, although my return (purchased on the same ticket) on the 6th July is still valid

    Indeed, that's why I asked the question. More information on both those issues in the following topic: https://thailand-uk.com/forums/showt...ovid-19-crisis

    I suspect the medical certificate requirement will be revoked once foreigners are permitted to return. Once the borders reopen, I expect there will be new requirements published. We will, of course, keep the topic linked above up to date as to the ever changing requirements for visitors.

    Yes, I've lost count of the flights I have had cancelled in the last few weeks. I am resigned to the fact I will not be travelling very much in the next few weeks/months. I suspect it will be summer at the earliest before we see travel restrictions around the world being eased.

    As your flight originates from the UK/EU, and we are still under EU rules, your rights for this cancellation are good - you have the choice of a either full refund or you can rebook to a date in the future at no additional cost. To make that point clear, the choice of which option to take is yours.

    A Thai friend has British passport, normally lives in UK is currently at her family home near Pattaya, she has had a email from Emirates to say her return flight booked for 24th April to Birmingham has been cancelled. Return ticket was booked direct with Emirates. Their website say she may not be entitled to partial refund only voucher for future travel, dependent on her ticket conditions is this correct?

    I don't dispute your knowledge and the law on this but Thai are insisting there is no refund, only a re-book by December 31st. At least that is what they have told me.
    I'm not bothered as I do wish to go so I have re-booked for October, although it cost me an extra £35 as the flight cost was higher (slightly annoyed but oh well).

    In that case Thai are in breach of Regulation EC261/2004, they must offer a full refund in the event of a cancelled flight. Their additional charge and time limit may also fall foul of the regulations.
