    House Insurance Thailand

    As the title suggests any recommendations on who to insure our Thai house with ?......................I presume like here in the west you can get House & Contents insurance and what would the average annual premium be ?

    AA will look after you via email from their Pattaya office. Building cover for major loss ie fire/flood/quake may require you to over-insure as payout may only be 50% of SI. Contents works similar to Aus and small items: phone, pc etc become difficult and expensive to cover. Burglary is almost unheard of.

    I looked into AXA as well. You enter your data and you see immediately what the coverage is and what it cost.

    i've often ended up with coverage with AXA after going through AA. they get a better rate than going direct with AXA i've found.

    Correct, much better dealing with Peter at AA.

    I've been thinking about this one Rob.............................I have noticed that a lot of homes have screens or stainless grills over windows up our way, and looking at some old photo's a lot of the moo baans around Chiang Mai also have them, I asked the missus and she says have to have to keep bad man out ? So she has added grills to the list of must haves for over the windows at our place 555

    Seems a common iteration and I'm sure rape is a worry to women living alone. Grilles also protect against the pee 555

    ^ nothing will stop the phi!

    Grilles are a good idea though. ..just don't lock yourself out 55
    We got a big wall around the place and no grilles.

    I like the grilles over windows in current house
    We were burgled 2010, Phuket, helpful Chalong cop showed how the aluminium joinery windows could be popped out in seconds with a small pocket knife
    Spent three years in previous 2 storey house with same style alu joinery (could leave upstairs windows open when out), but house owners on same site and no problems
    Current house, grilles. Single level, windows open almost permanently, mosquito grilles too, safe/secure, esp last year when I've started working out of the country for MsH/daughter at home, have long-term vacant houses each side no immediate neighbours
    I would fit them if our own house.
