Worth knowing about travel insurance

Our travel insurance lets you enjoy a straightforward, personalised travel experience. Because you choose and pay only for what you really need.

Coverage of cancellation costs

If something happens that prevents you from travelling as planned, we’ll cover the cost of insured events. Including having to return home sooner or later than expected. Notify us of the cancellation online so that we can check your entitlements.

Cancellation of travel insurance

Contracts for 31 days or less expire automatically. Annual insurance is automatically renewed on a year-by-year basis unless notice of cancellation is given. You can give notice of cancellation by email, via myCSS or by post. Please pay attention to the notice period.

Frequently asked questions

There aren’t really any cut-off dates. Events such as medical conditions that already existed before the insurance was taken out aren't included in the cover.

It doesn’t matter whether you notify us by email, myCSS or letter. What’s important is that you give us notice of cancellation in writing.

The notice period is one month. This does not apply to contracts with General Insurance Conditions (AVB) that pre-date 2016. A notice period of three months applies in this case. Check which version of the General Insurance Conditions applies to your policy.

If you already have supplementary insurance with no limit to the amount of cover worldwide, you don’t need medical costs insurance for your trip.

Yes. You’ll receive all the documents by email. Including a copy of the confirmation of insurance in English.

Good to know: If you are a myCSS user, you can find all your documents on the client portal.

You should always call the CSS emer­gency centre (+41 58 277 77 77) first. The required assistance will be quickly arranged and a commitment to provide cover issued, if necessary. Please also read the useful information for your stay abroad.
