Guest Care: travel insurance for your visitors

Guest Care

Do you have friends from abroad staying with you? What happens if a visitor suddenly feels unwell or has an accident while hiking? Our Guest Care travel insurance protects your visitors against the financial consequences of accident or illness.

Costs tend to be higher in Switzerland than abroad. The same is true of medical care. If your friends from abroad have no or insufficient travel insurance, emergency treatment or a search and rescue operation in the Swiss mountains can quickly become expensive. In these cases, it’s worth having visitor’s health insurance for your guests.

Your benefits with Guest Care

  • Covers all the costs of emergency treatment in Switzerland and the Schengen area
  • Transport, and search and rescue operations
  • Sanitas Assistance supports your visitors around the clock


If your visitors require inpatient treatment, they can choose from three categories:

  • General hospital ward (multi-bed room)
  • Semiprivate hospital ward (two-bed room)*
  • Private hospital ward (single room)*


* only available if the insured person has not yet reached the age of 65 at the time the insurance begins.

How to take out Guest Care insurance

Download the Guest Care product sheet and use the paying-in slip provided to take out insurance for your visitors quickly and easily. Once stamped by the post office, the stub of the paying-in slip is valid confirmation of insurance. You can insure up to four people with each paying-in slip. Cover commences on the date chosen by you, but at the earliest when your guests enter Switzerland or the Schengen Area, provided the following conditions are met:

  • Insurance is taken out before your guests enter the country
  • All details are filled out correctly and in full
  • The relevant premium has been transferred to Sanitas

The cost of Guest Care

You can take out the visitor insurance plan on a monthly basis for up to six months. The monthly premium depends on the age of the insured person and the category they choose. The age in the calendar year in which the contract starts applies.
