Is Trip Interruption recommended for Vietnam?


Considering trip interruption insurance is advisable for travels to Vietnam, particularly if you’ve made non-refundable bookings and are journeying from afar.



Vietnam-Specific Factors:


Political Stability: Although Vietnam generally enjoys political stability, unexpected events can still occur, they can cause you to cut your trip short.


Natural Disasters: The country experiences monsoon season (May to October), bringing potential risks like typhoons and floods. Having coverage can prove invaluable if your trip is impacted by severe weather.


Reminder: Always review the policy terms carefully to ensure you grasp the covered scenarios, as some insurance policies may offer extensive coverage but limit it to very specific circumstances.




How much Trip Interruption coverage do you need for Vietnam?


The amount of trip interruption coverage you need for Vietnam depends on personal preference however here are some  factors to consider:



  • Non-refundable Costs:  Add up the cost of your flights to Vietnam, pre-paid accommodation (hotels, tours, activities) that wouldn’t be refunded if you had to cut your trip short. This is the primary factor to consider.
  • Trip Length:  Longer trips through Vietnam generally warrant higher coverage amounts. The longer you’re there, the greater the chance of something unexpected happening.
  • Risk Tolerance: How comfortable are you potentially losing these non-refundable costs if needed?
