“I just want to get my wife home. She needs our help,” Mr Enwrightsaid.
Ms Enwright’s travel insurance Cover-More could not cover their medical expenses.
“We have been to Thailand many times, but we obviously didn’t know the system. You take out travel insurance thinking you are covered whatever happens overseas,” he said.
He told The Newcastle News that the insurer and its investigators secured footage around the time of the accident and records of the pair’s bar tab order history of nine Long Island iced teas delivered to their hotel room.
Mr Enwright said the company used these to determine that his wife could have a blood-alcohol level of 0.35, and the insurer claimed that a blood alcohol concentration reading of 0.19 or more could void an insurance claim.
To cover some of the medical expenses, the family has started a GoFundMe page.
“I and my family will be forever in debt to your generosity.”
