Travel insurance for extended stays
Are you leaving the country for several weeks or a few months? Before taking off, be sure to pack your safety net.
A wonderful... worry-free adventure
A journey across many different lands means different insurance needs. Leaving for more than one month requires coverage that is above and beyond short-term travel insurance.
Call our representatives immediately so they can make sure you’ve thought of everything.
Emergency round-trip travel
If an unexpected life event interrupts your trip that is supposed to last more than 30 days, under certain conditions you can make an emergency trip home and then resume your trip afterwards.
Emergency round-trip insurance reimburses transportation expenses in the event of:
- The death of an immediate family member
- Hospitalization lasting at least seven consecutive days
- Damages to your home that render it unlivable
Travel assistance is your best ally
- When you’re far away from home, it’s nice to know you can count on your insurer at all times.
- For a medical visit, repatriation or emergency return home, hospitalization, a prescription transfer or for new ID cards in case of theft (under certain conditions), all you have to do is call - 24/7/365.
