Automobile and Bicycle Insurance

・If you plan to drive a car or motorcycle, be sure to purchase an automobile insurance policy, since you could be liable to pay a very large amount of compensation to victims of traffic accidents that you might cause. Even if your driving is limited to just a summer vacation trip or other short-term occasion, always make sure you obtain insurance cover. Automobile policies can be purchased from casualty insurance companies.

・Students with bicycles are strongly recommended to obtain an insurance policy that covers injuries they may cause to others while riding. To protect you from paying the amount of expenses which were caused by bicycle accidents, you should purchase the optional insurances for the "Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research(Gakkensai Comprehensive Student Life Insurance) ".

Also, if you have "Comprehensive Renter's Insurance for Foreign Students Studying in Japan", your coverage may include certain cases of personal injury accidents. For details, consult with the International Support Group.
