EVA Air Travel Insurance - 2023 Review
EVA Air Travel Insurance
- Insurance Not Provided – Travelers Can Shop The Open Marketplace
- Insurance Suggestions Not Offered
Sharing is caring!
EVA Airways, "EVA" stands for Evergreen Airways, is a Taiwanese international airline based at Taoyuan International Airport near Taipei, Taiwan, operating passenger and dedicated cargo services to over 40 international destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America.
Travel insurance is not offered to US customers booking flights on EVA Air from the US. That’s good news – we can shop the open marketplace for travel insurance and find great options instead.
Our Sample Trip – Los Angeles to Bangkok, Thailand
For our sample trip, we booked a trip from Los Angeles to Bangkok, Thailand from December 9 – December 30 for two travelers.
The EVA Air website is easy to navigate, and after choosing our travel dates, number of travelers and fare category, the site displays the available flights, fare categories and pricing:
There weren’t many fare options for our departure date, so we settled for Economy.
When choosing the fare, the details of that fare, including mileage earned, penalty fees and change fees are shown:
After choosing our return flight and fare (also Economy) as well as seats, our total trip cost for both travelers came to $4,816.65, which included taxes, surcharges, and fees.
Now let’s see what we can find for travel insurance in the open marketplace through TravelDefenders.
TravelDefenders – The Travel Insurance Marketplace
Inputting our trip details into the quoting system at TravelDefenders, we’re presented with 27 options to choose from.
With so many options, what would be the best policy to choose?
TravelDefenders recommends having a minimum of $100,000 of medical coverage and $500,000 of medical evacuation coverage for travel to Asia and points beyond.
The least expensive plan with adequate medical coverage is the Trawick First Class for $273.28 which is the total cost for both travelers combined.
The policy provides $150,000 of medical coverage and $1 million of medical evacuation coverage as well as trip cancellation, trip interruption, and baggage coverage. If we need to cancel prior to departure for a reason listed in the policy, such as illness or injury, we will receive a 100% refund of our trip costs.
But what if we want maximum flexibility to cancel for ANY reason? Do we have any options?
The answer is YES! A Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) policy will provide maximum cancellation flexibility.
Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) Policies
For maximum cancellation flexibility, a Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) policy is a great option.
This is a super-powerful benefit that does exactly what it says. A traveler needs to have no reason at all to cancel and still receive a significant refund. The policies that we have can provide either a 50% or a 75% refund depending on the policy chosen.
Looking at our quote from TravelDefenders, the least expensive CFAR policy with adequate coverage is the Trawick First Class (CFAR 75%). This policy provides the same benefits we saw above but adds the Cancel For Any Reason benefit as well if we purchase the policy within 10 days of the initial trip payment or deposit date. Total cost for both travelers combined is $464.58.
If we had to cancel for a listed reason in the policy such as an illness, we’d receive 100% of the non-refundable trip cost. However, if we cancel for a reason NOT listed in the policy, such as simply deciding we don’t want to go, the policy will refund us 75% of the trip cost.
