Re: Insurance advice warning

The Thai Smile insurance I purchased mid-July was underwritten by Chubb Samaggi Insurance. Maybe they've changed recently, maybe they have multiple carriers or THAI has a different carriers. That's interesting, I purchased this on the 30th June. and definately Allianz Travel Insurance, they won't ev...

Re: Insurance advice warning

Sorry to hear your encounter with a not so friendly local. Did you study the PDS for this policy and verify the exclusions? You should be covered as the incident occurred during your paid for nominated dates. It is very unusual that they denied your claim. Who was/is the underwriter of the policy? ...

Just to be clear, you stopped, lined up the bike and then rode over him ?
No, I rode over him whist braking as I couldn't go around him.

Re: Insurance advice warning

Was help at the hospital forthcoming in knowledge of cobra bites. Antivenin available? etc Curious Sent ...

Re: Insurance advice warning

Yes I'm lucky I have a backup, so for those who want to know, this insurance is offered when booking online with Thaiair and ThaiSmile, it comes up as option when your nearly on the last page.

Re: Insurance advice warning

So a further update on this, they have refused to pay because as the policy was taken out for the duration of my holiday which ended on the 17th Aug. My bite happened on the 15th Aug. and caused me a delay until the 24th Aug., they claim the policy ended on the 17th Aug and my costs for being delaye...

Re: Insurance advice warning

Luckily not too crook, just a Cobra bite.
I've used policies before without a problem, it's just they used the wrong one. To top it off the hospital claimed the medical bill which got paid, but because I didn't submit my extras with it, I need to do a new claim ;(

I have the two policies, and showed them both, but they used the wrong one, a breakdown in communication while I was lying in ICU.

Re: Internet Problem

Thanks for the info, I gather my hotel is using a VPN. I got the search sorted out, but cannot change maps as I not read Laos. No problem I'll put up with it until I return to Oz.

Internet Problem

Two days ago when I turned on my laptop in my hotel, Google Search came up in Laos language, and Google Maps comes up in Laos language also.
It's as if Google is using a Laos server here in Udon, has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Are Paracetamol tablets harmful to dogs..

They are ok for dogs, but are a slow death for cats, never give them to a cat. If you do there is a drug that counteracts it, but we were unable to find it in Udon.
