It’s the holiday season and that means most western teachers in Korea are about to have their winter holiday. During the holiday break many teachers leave Korea to go on vacation in exotic destinations such as Thailand, the Philippines, and Hong Kong, just to name a few. Many teachers fail to purchase travel insurance during this period for any number of reasons; they forgot, they’re on a budget and don’t want to increase the cost of their trip, ran out of time, didn’t know where to find a proper insurance policy, etc.
There are many companies and institutions that sell reputable travel insurance; your bank, credit card company, local travel agent, family insurance provider and countless private companies have different insurance packages available. Before you purchase a travel insurance policy make sure it suits your travel plans and covers the basics; meaning, read the fine print or speak with an agent before you pay up!
