We have put together some information to cover you with Travel Insurance Olympics 2020 travel advice. If you are planning a trip to Japan this summer for the Olympic Games 2020, getting a Travel Insurance policy in place as soon as possible is essential and especially when the Coronavirus may cause disruption to your travel plans.


Pre Existing Medical Conditions

Japan has an excellent health system and excellent medical facilities, but as you will be far from home, and you have Pre Existing Medical Conditions that you wish to declare there are some important things to remember.

Proof of Travel Insurance: As mentioned previously Japan has an excellent health system, but there is high demand and so it might be more difficult to receive treatment as you are not part of the system. So you are certain to be asked to provide proof that you have a Travel Insurance policy in place and you can provide the medical authorities with paper or electric proof of the documents.

Medication: In Japan, over the counter drugs are harder to come by such as pain killers and other medication. You are allowed to bring in prescription medication as long as they are quantities that are for personal use.

Natural Catastrophe

Japan is classified as a major zone for earthquakes and during your trip you might experience some tremors. These can sometimes impact on public transport, so it is important that you have cover such as missed, delayed departure or missed connection cover.

JS Travel Insurance also provides Natural Catastrophe cover as an extra option and in the case of the Coronavirus, you should make sure you have the right cover in place.


It is always a good idea to do some research about emergency services available and any particular action you will need to take in case of one of these emergencies.
