Travel insurance in Germany

Travel insurance in Germany (Reiseversicherung) is an additional type of insurance taken out to cover the health needs and expenses of individuals with health insurance living in Germany while they are in a country other than Germany. This insurance is not compulsory, but it is one of the most preferred types of insurance in Germany.

Why is travel insurance in Germany necessary?

If you get sick or have an accident while living in Germany and go on vacation to Turkey or another country, you will have to pay for most of the medical treatment yourself. Your general health insurance in Germany will only cover part of the costs on a conditional basis. German travel health insurance provides much more comprehensive coverage for medical expenses incurred by individuals or families when traveling abroad.

Insurance coverage example

Health cost outside of Germany
John, while on vacation in the United States, fell ill, and the treatment process in the USA will be more expensive than in Germany. John's health insurance in Germany only covers expenses at German rates. John may face high costs as a result. Travel health insurance can bridge this insurance gap with comprehensive coverage.
Transfer to Germany
Sarah, while on vacation in Turkey, fell ill and had to be hospitalized. After the treatment, she needs to be transferred to Germany using a private vehicle. She can cover the expenses beyond her regular health insurance coverage by using travel health insurance.
Rescue by helicopter
Daniel was on a hiking trip in Spain when he got stranded and called for emergency rescue teams. Daniel was rescued by helicopter in Spain, and the expenses were covered according to the scope of his travel health insurance.
