Yes scooters are a high risk mode of transport especially in asia and we don't even know if he had a valid license do we? Kiwis need to take responsibility for their actions overseas and take out comprehensive insurance that will cover their intended activities like riding a motorbike. It is no use to try and blame the government or the insurance company when things go wrong. Don't assume medical care in Thailand is poor either because it is on a par with NZ even if it is a developing country. I've read far too many anti Thailand comments which I find both amusing and slightly rascist. But Kiwis do need to get out of their cocoon and realise the rest of the world can be a challenging place where you need to get proper insurance.This guy is lucky he found a generous sponsor.

I would not pay the outstanding debt of $12000 back to Thailand after the disgusting way they have treated a foreigner in desparate need of medical help.

Great to see that this guy is coming home. I'm in Thailand now and it is common knowledge that the hire of scooter voids your travel insurance. You have to pay extra for cover. I paid $90 AUD for 3 weeks cover. I find it hard to comprehend that this guy didn't know this?? Even the scooter hire company asked if I had it.

I think we should also all know the name of the insurance company. I think it's outrageous on their part especially when scooters are a big part of travel these days for this to not be made explicit (in big red letters) on a policy. I accept that their policy did not cover him but I think it's sharp practice in their part to hide behind policy wording and not have made it clear.
