Many countries have regulations defining which kind of insurance you need to have. If you travel abroad through a program, insurance cover is often already included in the program. The insurance policies offered by most programs and universities are ok and you don’t need to take care of anything else. Sometimes, however, the insurance cover provided is not as good as what you are used to in your home country. That’s why you should take the time prior to your trip to thoroughly check the offered insurance policy. It is vital though that you should never travel abroad without having proper international health insurance.
Here are some of the issues you should check:
If such an insurance policy meets your expectations, you should probably purchase it. If you are still not really convinced or if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to provide you with independent and objective advice.

Where you notify us after the originally planned day of departure, you need to provide us with proof (passport copy or ticket).
Should you need medical treatment during your stay abroad, we will be happy to assist you. You can call us and we will explain what you need to know when visiting a doctor abroad. You will also find all the details in our section What to do in the event of a claim.

In addition, accidents and emergency treatments are also covered worldwide and in your home country during holidays with a duration of up to 6 weeks.
