Insurance for school trips abroad

Basic cover

Health insurance abroad

International health insurance is the most important insurance for school trips and school trips abroad. Although the statutory health insurance generally provides cover in other European countries and in the EEA, the costs are only covered up to the amount that would be reimbursed for treatment in Germany. The health insurance company may also make deductions - for example, for increased administrative costs. Some services must also be approved before treatment begins. With a foreign health insurance you are better covered in case of illness abroad. Here, additional costs incurred by treatment or hospitalization abroad are covered. Likewise, a necessary repatriation from abroad for appropriate further treatment in the home country. Our international health insurance also covers you if you have to be treated due to a corona disease.

In the travel cancellation insurance, you can choose between coverage with deductible or without deductible. The deductible amounts to 20% of the reimbursable costs.
