Travel Insurance to Protect Your Trip to China, Japan & Southeast Asia
Your coverage should include trip cancellation & interruption, emergency medical and evacuation components. The premium primarily depends on your age, trip cost, trip duration and the type of plan you choose. Trip cost should include airfare taxes and surcharges, visa fees, single supplement, and extension costs, wherever applicable.

Is travel insurance really that important?
Many unexpected events such as epidemics, natural disasters, political instability or illness in the family can result in cancellation of a booked trip and consequently partial or total loss of payments related to the planned trip. An accident or medical emergency during the tour may require air evacuation or hospitalization that could cost the unprepared a fortune, hence the need for travel medical insurance. Every year, nearly 8% of our customers end up cancelling their trips or returning home prematurely mostly due to illness of themselves or sudden death or hospitalization in the family. This is not fear-mongering and we are certainly not saying you have to buy coverage through Laurus Travel. We’ll be happy as long as you are protected not matter where you buy it.
