    I paid approx 7500 baht for 90 days of AXA covid insurance in 2020, despite being in a different (cheaper) age band .

    I've just been quoted £233 (THB 10760) for a what looks like a proper 120 day insurance, with £5 million of medical cover, including covid and they seem amenable to writing a letter saying it includes covid medical cover exceeding $100,000. (Travel Time Travel insurance).

    However, it has been suggested that a 90 day O-visa is not eligible for a 30 day extension, so that part need researching first, before I do an "up to 120 days" itinerary.

    Haven’t read any of the small print but if it’s just for covid....
    I believe AXA limits age to 75 yo?

    Yes....as an experiment I tried to book. Strangely enough, my Lloyds Bank insurance , underwritten by AXA, allows travel up to 80 years of age.

    I intend to rely on the travel insurance attatched to my credit card.

    The Thai AXA site requires you to be 74 or under on the date of departure.

    So not much use for some.

    Re: Health Insurance to enter Thailand

    Coverage for Covid insurance:

    Tipinsure: 3.200.000 Baht
    https://covid19.tgia.org/ 3.200.000 Baht
    Axa Sawatdee Thailand 3.500.000 Baht

    Is the requirement actually 100.000 $ or is it 3.200.000 Baht? That was the same last december, but not anymore, now it is about 95.000$.
    3.500.000 is roughly 103.000 $, currently enough, but how will the exchange rate be in 1 month?

    Also would be nice to have a Covid insurance that covers:
    - hospital costs if asymptomatic
    - unexpected quarantine when someone else on the plane gets testet positive (i guess we will have to live with this)

    I contacted AXA about hospital costs if asymptomatic before my last trip. They said yes, no, yes and then when I and others contacted them yet again, formally confirmed it WAS covered. That was 2020, so do check again if planning to use it.

    There was the other little problem where certain people were sent off to hospital after an "inconclusive" test last year. As reported on the Facebook ASQ page. I'm not quite sure what happened there.

    Forgive me if I've written this before.
    The proposed 500 Baht 'landing charge' will probably not put tourists off BUT the $100,000 dollar Covid insurance will.
    A few years ago, Thailand imposed a surcharge on entering of something like 300 Baht which was to cover Farang who left Thai hospitals here without paying their bills.
    This again would be preferable to paying exorbitant fees to insurance companies (owned by General(s) ***?
