What are the insurance provisions available in case anything goes wrong?

  • Regular travel insurance includes travel sickness insurance. This includes expenses in the event of death and medical treatment in the event of an accident or acute illness during the trip.
  • Included in the insurance are expenses for repatriation to your country of residence when it is medically indicated, and summoning relatives in the event of a serious, life-threatening illness. The costs of necessary treatment and repatriation are usually reimbursed without an upper limit.
  • The insurance usually also includes an accident insurance. This is an insurance cover that is paid out in the event of death or permanent medical disability as a result of an accident. The sum insured is paid as a lump sum.
  • Travel insurance can be taken out as individual insurance for a special trip, or, as most people choose, a year-round insurance that is renewed automatically until it is terminated.
