Travel insurance for Canadian Expat living in South Korea when traveling to Southeast Asia?
Hi! I am a Canadian citizen moving to South Korea for a year in a couple of months. I know that while I am there, the school I am teaching with provides me with Korean medical insurance. However, while on that side of the world, I plan to do a lot of traveling, especially throughout Southeast Asia. What type of travel insurance would I need to purchase for that?
I use World Nomads at about $650 per annum. Whatever you choose read the fineprint, all of it, its too late when you’re lying in some filthy hospital and being told your insurance will not pay for your treatment. No money, no treatment, simple! There are so many ”out” clauses in insurance policies. You may have read about the young Canadian guy who went to Vietnam to teach English a few years ago. Part of his contract was for full medial/evacuation insurance. His employer didn’t pay it and after a motorcycle accident his mother had to mortgage her house to get him home. $140’000 US to stabilize him in Vietnam and Thailand and medivac him back to Canada. Unfortunately after showing signs of recovery he passed away 2 months later leaving his mother a huge bill to try and pay off. Another thing is to check the different countries laws especially when it come to riding a motorbike or driving a car. Some countries recognize International Licences, some don’t, Vietnam is one country that doesn’t. Have an accident here without a valid Vietnamese license and your insurance company will not cover you, and even if you do have one they will ask for a police report as to what you were wearing, ie helmet, safety gear, gloves etc etc. Choose wisely and don’t buy any policy you haven’t fully read. Good luck.
P.S. And don’t be afraid to call the company and ask questions.

What is the best motorbike for beginners?
I’m looking for a cheap bike, in cost and insurance to learn how ride on.
Where do i start?
Beware of “cheap” bikes, you may run into problems. If your gonna be learning to ride a bike, MY advise is not to get one thats over a 350cc. Trust me, a 350 has MORE than enough power in it, its good on fuel, and the insurance shouldnt be to expencive. Look thru the want ads for someone that has one and has (depending on the year of the bike) no more than 15000 miles on it. Check the tires, oil, tank, carbs, chain, breaks. Ask to see service records or parts receipts for anything that the owner replaced as to when and what was replaced.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
