Starting October 5, 2022, Hoshino Resorts has been providing free travel medical insurance to all international travelers staying at Hoshino Resorts Group properties in Japan . This insurance covers medical expenses for illnesses, including COVID-19, that occur while staying at Hoshino Resorts facilities.

Since the pandemic, people are becoming more and more concerned about getting proper medical care and communicating their symptoms while traveling abroad. In addition, in Japan, it is obligatory to pay the actual medical expenses (*1), so medical expenses for international travelers tend to be expensive, and many hospitals only accept cash payments.

This "Hoshino Resorts Travel Medical Insurance" supports such problems for international travelers.
