What is travel insurance?

Giving you reassuring protection against costs arising from unexpected situations, travel insurance is available for both foreign and domestic trips. Travel insurance is a must for anyone taking a trip or longer holiday, be it for sightseeing, leisure or to pursue amateur sports pastimes such as skiing or surfing. Parents should also consider travel insurance when travelling with children.
By insuring your travel, you can relax and enjoy your trip without undue worry. Insurance can cover costs arising from a variety of situations including medical treatment and transport, flight delay and loss of luggage, alongside third-party liability and accident insurance.
To best protect you from unforeseen situations, we recommend always choosing a comprehensive level of cover that best suits your trip.

This insurance is for you if:

You expect comprehensive protection wherever you are

You are traveling for recreation and leisure purposes

You practice sport not professionally, e.g. skiing or jogging

You want to secure your luggage

Travel with children

Any trip involving children should always be covered with travel insurance. In the event of any health problems during your trip – even minor issues like colds or cuts – your insurance enables you to access medical assistance such as medical visits and even hospitalisation – quickly and without additional cost. The policy also offers reimbursement of any costs incurred for medicines, dressings or orthopaedic products when prescribed by a doctor.

Travel insurance vs. EHIC cover Although the European Health

Insurance Card (EHIC) is a popular solution when travelling in Europe, it may not offer the same protection as travel insurance purchased via eSky. EHIC coverage is dependent on the country of travel and does not cover the costs of medical transport, which can potentially exceed €100,000. Our insurance imposes no limit on medical transport costs, therefore we strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance through eSky prior to your trip, giving you additional protection to the EHIC.
