Cost and Recomendations for Travel Insurance

Can someone share some recommendations for Covid travel Insurance to Thailand? What have been the costs?

Lots of recommendations in the Test & Go application process thread. Personally, I was able to purchase a 30 day policy from Roojai for 650 THB/~19 USD.

Do you want real insurance or just something to get you a Thailand Pass?

Depending on when you're travelling you may want to hold off as there may be updates to the requirements announced following the CCSA meeting next Friday.

if you travel frequently anyway and you have a primary plan in the US, GeoBlue multiple trip insurance (trekker choice/essential) meets this requirement and for $124-$175 (for a 35 yo, for example) you're covered for other trips up to 70 days (per trip) globally too for 1 year. Just make sure you include all the plan documents on the portal when you apply for the QR code. I used to carry this insurance when I was based out of the US because it was more cost-effective than buying trip-specific plans. And I did not have any issues with them when I had to make claims either.

It's a four day holiday weekend in Thailand, IIRC. May take a few days longer than normal.

I would have thought that the credit card you travel with covers your emergency medical insurance costs. Isn't that one of the many reasons to get these type of cards?

As a follow up, I got it after a day. Also, I email the provider and it was responsive. highly recommended.

Thailand currently requires insurance coverage with specific medical dollar figures. While the credit card coverage may protect in you in reality, the country wants that piece of paper saying you purchased additional travel insurance.
