International Travel Insurance

Some people may neglect to sign up for insurance, “because will be a short trip” or “because (they have) never caught an illness or incurred damages in the past.” However, no matter how careful you may be, accidents happen. Due to the rise in cases of theft, loss, illnesses, and injuries among travelers without travel insurance who consequently cannot afford the cost of treatment, it is imperative to purchase travel insurance with coverage for these issues.

If you have plans for activities such as scuba diving, biking, driving, and trekking, why not enhance your sense of security during your trip to Okinawa by considering international travel insurance coverage?

Methods of signing up for insurance, premiums, amount, and coverage limit vary by insurance company. Therefore, please contact an insurance company directly.
