FAQ

Scope of insurance packages and additional coverage

  • Medical expenses – what do they include?

    They include the organisation and coverage of necessary medical expenses and providing emergency medical aid by the Insurer in case of a sudden illness or accident while travelling. Under such insurance the Insurer covers among others the costs of medical appointments, exams, operations, hospitalization, as well as purchase of medication or dressings, if needed in connection with an injury or illness. The insurance also covers the reimbursement for medical rescue costs, e.g. helicopter or ambulance transport, and even costs of dental treatment or repair of glasses. It also covers assistance in cases of bodily injury or death as a result of a terrorist attack.

    The insurance also covers losses resulting from participating in recreational sports, such as cross-country skiing, cycling, running, beach volley-ball. But it does not cover losses resulting from participating in more risky sports (e.g. skiing, diving). In such cases one should buy extreme sports coverage


  • Travel assistance – what does it include?

    The Insurer provides, among other things, assistance in the event of loss or theft of documents, transportation and stay of a relative in the event of the Insured’s hospitalisation, or replacement driver, if the Insured's health condition does not allow him to drive.

    Moreover, the Insurer will organise transport after the completion of treatment to the place of lodging. If while travelling you need an interpreter in your contacts with the doctor, have to return to Poland due to a sudden illness of your relative or require a lawyer's assistance, you can count on the Insurer's help.


  • Third-party liability insurance in private life – what does it include?

    This insurance covers the Insured, his minor children and pets travelling with the Insured. In the event of personal injury or property damage the Insurer pays out compensation to the claimant.

    The insurance covers among others losses arising from:

    • using, possessing, or renting a house or a flat
    • flooding regardless of the Insured’s fault
    • possessing or using property, including property which was used by persons covered by the insurance under an agreement for a lease, rental, letting for use, leasing or another related legal relationship
    • caring for minor children
    • participating in recreational sports, using recreational boating equipment. If you buy extreme sports coverage, you are additionally covered for losses/damages resulting from participating in such sports
    • having pets (including those under the Insured's care)

  • Accident insurance – what does it include?

    It covers the consequences of accidents sustained while travelling, such as bodily injury causing a lasting health impairment or death. You will receive the payout, if you sustain lasting damage to your health during the trip (e.g. break your arm, impair your eyesight). In the case of the Insured’s accident-related death while travelling the payout will be made to his relatives.

    If you buy extreme sports coverage, you are additionally covered for losses/damages resulting from participating in such sports.


  • Luggage insurance – what does it include?

    Luggage insurance covers among others loss, destruction or damage to luggage while travelling. It covers the items taken for the trip which are owned by the Insured or have been rented by him.

    • Pram or wheelchair
    • Musical instruments
    • Jewellery
    • Cash
    • Suitcases, bags, rucksacks

    If you take sports equipment with you, buy additional coverage for it, because it is not included in the scope of your insured luggage.

  • Extreme sports coverage – what does it include?

    Extreme sports coverage is recommended to persons who while travelling are planning to participate in high-risk sports such as skiing, kitesurfing, or mountain biking. This insurance covers medical costs related to one’s participation in risky sports. If the event occurs while practising extreme sports, the Insurer will also cover losses resulting from damage to property, injury, disability, or death of another person and resulting from accidents.


  • Chronic illness coverage – what does it include?

    It includes medical expenses incurred due to an exacerbation of a chronic illness while travelling. It also covers third-party liability travel insurance and accident insurance.

In addition, the Insurer will also pay out accident insurance compensation, if the injury or death occurred in connection with an accident caused by chronic diseases, and also third-party liability compensation, if the loss/damage caused to a third party or property was related to an exacerbation of a chronic illness.
