Anything can happen on trips abroad. Your appendix could burst while you're travelling around America, or your friend from Italy could break a leg. Our Travel insurance plan protects you against the financial consequences, while our Guest Care plan protects your visitors from abroad.
An appendectomy is a routine operation in Switzerland and costs around CHF 4,000. In the USA it costs up to CHF 30,000. Your basic insurance covers only double the amount of costs paid in Switzerland, so approximately CHF 8,000. You have to pay the difference, which in this case would be up to CHF 22,000. Travel covers all the costs.
The Travel insurance plan covers all the costs of emergency treatment abroad, transport, and search and rescue operations. In emergencies, Sanitas Assistance offers support around the clock. Our emergency hotline organises medical care and transport, makes advance payments and covers the cost of an accompanying person or a visitor.
