Travel insurance covers:

  • Medical care and transport expenses related to accidents and illnesses
  • Expenses arising from travel itinerary change (cancellation of trip, disruption of trip, delay of means of transport, etc.)
  • Expenses related to the restoration or replacement of personal effects taken with you on a trip if these effects are damaged or destroyed due to a sudden unforeseeable event during the trip (including theft)
  • Property damage or personal injury caused to third parties while on the trip

Travel cancellation cover

Travel cancellation cover starts on the third full day after you enter into the insurance policy. In other words, if the insurance event (see conditions of travel insurance (PDF)) takes place on either the first or second day after the policy date, you are not covered and the cancellation will not be indemnified.

Depending on the purpose of your trip, we recommend choosing additional travel insurance covers:

  • Additional cover for a sports trip
  • Additional cover for dangerous activities
  • Additional cover for working abroad

Medical assistance insurance covers:

  • unavoidable medical assistance (incl. dental treatment and doctor-prescribed medications);
  • expenses on transporting the Insured Person to a medical institution and Estonia;
  • costs of returning a child to Estonia;
  • travel expenses of a close relative or partner;
  • travel lengthening costs;
  • costs of buying coffin.

Excess

The excess is the amount of the damage that will be borne by you in every insured event. The excess is applied to insured events in property, travel itinerary change, liability and legal assistance insurance. Where a single insurance contract covers several family members who are living together, a single joint excess will apply to the family members. The amount of the excess is 30 euros.

Travel insurance with credit card

Some credit cards conclude also travel insurance. Read more about cards and concluded travel insurance:

Additional cover for dangerous activities*

If you are planning to participate in sports competitions or sports training while on the trip or your goal is to have an active and adventurous holiday, choose the additional cover for dangerous activities for your travel insurance.

  • Sports training and competitions: participating in official sports competitions or professional training
  • Winter sports: skiing and snowboarding off-piste (only with the use of safety equipment*) with a companion
  • Water sports: sailing, piloting a motorboat, surfing, windsurfing, diving at depths over 10 m (only with a diving certificate*)
  • Hiking: mountain hiking at altitudes up to 5,500 metres, climbing on Via Ferrata routes up to Category III*, hikes or expeditions to jungles, deserts, wilderness or uninhabited areas without a professional guide
  • Cycling: cycling in mountainous areas or participating in cycling competitions

* Further information available in Appendix 1 “Classification of Dangerous Activities” to the Travel Insurance Terms and Conditions

Additional cover for a sports trip

The additional cover for a sports trip can be chosen if you have purchased all the other insurance cover policies (medical care, property and travel disruption insurance) as well. You are able to expand the existing covers with the additional cover for a sports trip:

  • Extensions of travel disruption insurance: we always deem the cancellation of the trip to be justified if the departure of the aircraft, train or ship to the destination of the trip is more than 36 hours late. We will always deem the disruption of the trip and returning to Estonia justified if your accident or illness does not allow you to engage in the planned sport or participate in the competition over at least the next 48 hours.
  • Extension of property insurance: in addition to the sum insured indicated in the policy, we will indemnify up to 3,000 euros for sports equipment (including leased sports equipment) broken during the trip.
  • Closed runs insurance: if all runs of the sports centre that serves as the destination of the trip are closed due to unexpected and unforeseen worsening of the weather conditions, we will pay an indemnity of 50 euros per day, but not more than 350 euros in total.

If you participate in a sports camp or a sports competition as an amateur, you must choose the additional cover for dangerous activities beforehand.

Additional cover for working abroad

We will indemnify damage caused while working or undergoing practical training abroad only if the additional cover for working abroad has been indicated in the policy. Regardless of the existence of the additional cover, the insurance cover does not apply to the generally excluded activities or activities covered with additional cover for dangerous activities.

  • Is it necessary to enter into a travel insurance contract if you have the European Health Insurance Card?

    The cover offered by health insurance varies in all European Union Member States. Visit the website of the National Health Insurance Fund to check which services are covered by national medical insurance at your destination and which services you have to pay for. For example, the European Health Insurance Card holders are usually obliged to pay for certain retention if the trip is prolonged due to illness or it is necessary to return home earlier than planned and thus organise it on one’s own.

    With travel insurance you don’t have to worry about additional expenses, as these will be covered by insurance. Both expenses may amount to hundreds or even thousands of euros.

  • What do I have to do if I fall ill or an accident occurs during the trip?

    In case of minor illness (common cold, fever, etc.), pay the medical treatment expenses on site, if possible. When you return from the trip, submit the loss notification and medical treatment invoice to Swedbank property insurance. If you are in need of urgent treatment or hospitalisation, please address our Claims Handling at 888 2111 (24 h).

  • What expenses are covered if the luggage is delayed?

    If the arrival of luggage is delayed in the destination country of your trip by the transport operator for at least 4 hours, we will indemnify any essential commodities that you purchased or rented for the purpose of using them during the trip as well as any expenses incurred in order to purchase objects that are important with regard to the purpose of the trip. The indemnity amounts up to 30% of the amount of luggage insurance.

  • If my flight is delayed and I cannot make the next flight, what will be indemnified?

    If the departure is 4 to 24 hours late, we will indemnify up to 150 euros for incurring the required expenses. If the flight is delayed by more than 24 hours, we will indemnify a maximum of 300 euros. We consider required expenses to constitute expenses on food and accommodation, and also expenses on toiletries if you have checked your luggage.

    In addition, we will indemnify the rise in travel and accommodation expenses necessary for continuing the planned trip and previously paid and irrecoverable expenses for services that were unused due to not making the connecting flight.

    You need to ask the airline or travel agent for a written confirmation of the belatedness of the flights.

  • Change of itinerary examples

    • You were en route to a three-week holiday in a five-star seaside hotel in Bali. The scheduled flight was Tallinn to Denpasar via Frankfurt. Due to thick fog in Tallinn, the Tallinn-Frankfurt flight departed four hours behind schedule causing you to miss your connecting flight to Denpasar. The airline exchanged your tickets without extra charge for a flight departing two days later and offered you accommodation in a three-star hotel adjacent to the airport. You were therefore unable to spend two nights of your stay in the luxury hotel in Bali and the hotel did not refund you the money you had paid for it. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of travel insurance, if the substance and quality of the replacement service differ significantly from the initial service, we will consider the cost of the replacement service to constitute 50% of the price of the initial service, and therefore indemnify the cost of 50% of the nights in the hotel in Bali that you were unable to use.
    • You were on holiday in India and due to return. The flight back home was from Goa to Tallinn via Delhi and Amsterdam. However, due to an aircraft technical failure, the flight from Goa to Delhi was delayed and scheduled for the next day. In order to avoid missing your connecting flight via Amsterdam and arrive on time in Tallinn, you purchased new tickets to Delhi from the airport in Goa. Your insurance will indemnify the cost of purchasing the new tickets.
    • You were visiting friends in the United States and were due to return to Tallinn from Miami via London and Helsinki. The first flight landed on time but, due to adverse weather conditions, the flight from London to Helsinki was delayed insofar as to make it impossible for you to make the Helsinki-Tallinn flight. The airline offered the next flight to Tallinn, which was scheduled to depart the following day, but you needed to be in Tallinn on the same night. Therefore, you decided to drive to the port and board a ferry. Your flight ticket was therefore not used and the airline did not refund it. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of travel insurance, if additional transport costs are incurred due to a change in the itinerary and the irrecoverable transport services that have already been paid for remain unused, we will indemnify the cost of the higher of the two. In this instance, the price of the flight ticket was higher than the cab fare to the port and the ferry ticket combined; therefore, your insurance will indemnify the cost of the unused flight ticket.
