More Brits need assistance in Thailand than many other holiday spots, which could urge those taking cheap flights to the country to get adequate holiday insurance.
Such a figure could highlight the need for tourists taking cheap flights to Thailand to get proper insurance, as medical costs and other expenses could be more expensive than people imagine.
“The worrying fact is that so many of these situations are preventable. Helping out Britons in trouble abroad is part of our job, but we can’t get you out of jail or pay your hospital bills,” warned Foreign and Commonwealth office minister Jeremy Browne.
Despite the figures, Thailand is an incredibly popular holiday spot with Brits, tempted to visit by stunning beaches and great weather.
