Start of insurance

Insurance cover is provided for the period mentioned in the insurance certificate.
Where application and payment take place prior to the start of the journey, insurance cover begins at the start of the stay abroad (when the insured person leaves his/her home country). There is no insurance cover for claims which occurred before the beginning of the insurance.

Where application and payment take place up to one month after the start of the journey, insurance cover begins on the date we receive your application and premium payment. There is no insurance cover for claims which occurred before application and payment.

End of insurance

Insurance ends automatically on the agreed date. Insurance cover ends on the same date, but not later than at the end of the stay abroad. Where a return journey at the end of insurance is not possible for medical reasons, the insurer’s liability to pay extends to the date where a return journey becomes possible.
