How to read in Japanese: overseas travel accident insurance

Overseas travel accident insurance is an insurance policy that provides support for problems that occur during overseas travel. The coverage includes “accident and illness expenses” to pay for hospital visits due to injury or illness, and “damage to personal belongings” in the event that your belongings are stolen or damaged.

Although coverage varies depending on the credit card company and plan, there is also “indemnity” for injuries to others or damage to belongings caused by unexpected accidents.

This insurance is automatically attached when you pay for public transportation such as airline tickets, trains, and buses with a credit or debit card prior to departure from Japan. The limit of the insurance benefit paid in the event of an applicable event generally increases according to the class of card.
