Long period abroad?

Good travel insurance is critical when you go abroad for a long time (e.g., to backpack, study, or do an internship). Standard travel insurance usually needs to provide more cover for a trip of several months. In these cases, you can take out globetrotter travel insurance. The globetrotter travel insurance is the most complete insurance for longer periods abroad.

Tips for taking out student travel insurance

  • You must carefully read and compare the general terms and conditions of the various providers of travel insurance or cancellation insurance. Some policy conditions contain strict conditions that must be met before the insurers will pay out.
  • First, think carefully about which things you consider important to be insured during your trip. Insuring certain items in addition to basic coverage is also often possible.
  • Keep the receipts for items you take with you on a trip. The travel insurers may ask about this if you want to declare the items after theft or loss.
  • If you have been a victim of theft during your trip, report it to the local police. Insurance companies may ask for proof of declaration when declaring items that have been closed.

Switching travel insurance

You can switch to another insurer if you have continuous or globetrotter travel insurance. This is a wise choice when another provider offers a cheaper premium or better coverage. Cancelling travel insurance is subject to a few rules. For example, you can never switch during the first year of the insurance; in other cases, a notice period applies.
