Cheaper travel insurance for holidays in Asia
From the Yangtze gorges to the temples of Thailand, the waves of Bali and the mass humanity of India, there is much to see in Asia. But wherever you roam on this amazing continent, don't go without us.
"So glad I found this company"
"After recently being diagnosed with Crohn’s and having already booked a holiday to Thailand I was really concerned I would not be able to obtain travel insurance to enable me to go. World First, listened, understood and made things so simple for me to obtain the insurance at a very stressful time."

Travelling in Asia in brief
Travelling in Asia can be many things. It can be fun. But it can also be beguiling, confusing, fascinating and, more importantly, wonderful. There are many and varied cultures, ancient sites and civilisations and the very newest of the new. Asia has some of the world's greatest cities as well as some of the best surf, most incredible ruins, biggest temples, highest mountains, fastest moving cultures and lots and lots of incredible tropical beaches.
But of course, travelling in Asia isn't like travelling in Europe. Many things, especially away from popular tourist hotspots, are not like home at all and it's easy to fall foul of local customs, laws and ways of doing things if you don't know how. The language barrier can be a problem too, especially if you are in a country that has a completely alien script. However, the more you try to speak just a few local words, the more you will be welcomed. Ask and you will be rewarded!
Asian food is extremely popular here in the UK but it might not always be what you are expecting. So don't be afraid to ask questions and be prepared to try something new. Who could resist a red Thai curry, a thali plate in India, a curried hopper from Sri Lanka or a nasi champur from a street cart in Bali? Eating is one of the best things about Asia. And don't forget that the busiest places are invariably the best. Eat where the locals do and you can't go far wrong!
Get covered for any eventuality
We offer a choice of great value policies that will give you all the benefits and cover you'll need for your trip to Asia – whether you are looking to cover a single trip, for cheap annual cover or need a policy for your backpacking tour. We can even provide great value last minute cover if you decide to take off on a whim.
You can also choose the level of cover you go for depending on the way you like to travel. So if you like the reassurance of £10million emergency medical expenses and gadget cover – as well as cancellation, loss of baggage, documents and money – then our great value Superior policy will see you through. However, if you prefer to travel on a shoestring then our Economy policy will give you all the essentials – cancellation, public liability £1million medical expenses and personal luggage – at a fraction of the cost of other policies. And, of course, all our policies give you access to 24/7 emergency assistance wherever you are in Asia.
