Trip& Travel Insurance

TRIP & TRAVEL INSURANCE

 

Travelers are highly recommended  to purchase  trip and  travel  insurance. Trip insurance covers the cost of

your trip should you be forced to cancel your trip for objective reasons such as a death of a family member

or accident BEFORE you start  the  trip. The tour operator will still apply  the full charge and  the  insurance

company will  cover  the  loss.  Whereas, travel insurance  covers  such  costs  as  emergency  and  medical

evacuation, hospital  fees, property  loss, cancellation of a  scheduled  trip due  to weather during  the  trip. Coverage for the trip and travel insurance varies depending on the policy purchased. For more information, contact www.travelexinsurance.com or another travel insurance website. If you would like Flight Travel to have a copy of your travel insurance information in case of emergency, Please forward these details to your agent who will in turn forward to our office.

 

HEALTH

Immunizations

The following immunizations are recommended for travelers in Southeast Asia. You are advised to consult with your doctor or local health department to discuss your immunization requirements. For further information, please look up on CDC www.cdc.gov

 

* Hepatitis A: Vaccination provides immunity for up to ten years and involves an initial injection followed by another six months to one year later.

 

* Typhoid: Vaccination takes the form of an injection or capsules.

 

* Dengue Fever and Malaria: These are mosquito borne diseases. There are incidents of Dengue Fever and Malaria in the country, mainly in rural areas during the rainy season. The reason it is so prevalent is that local people lack awareness of the dangers and do not take preventative measures.

There is no complete vaccine available for either disease, however, you may want to consult with a doctor for their recommended anti-malarial medication. The most effective way is to prevent being bitten by a mosquito in the first place. We encourage clients to sleep beneath a mosquito net in open-style rooms, and always apply mosquito repellent, especially near water and in the day time as this is when Dengue mosquitoes are most likely to bite.

Smoking & non-smoking

Most of the male population is smokers therefore it is common to find public places such as restaurants, bars, and cafes filled with smoke. The non-smoking definition in Vietnam does not necessarily mean it is smoke-free. While most reputable five-star hotels have non-smoking rooms, some hotels consider non-smoking as simply removing the ashtray from the room.
