Our Travel Insurances
In order to enable medical treatment by a doctor in case of illness or accident, the following guidelines are in place:
- Children from Austria require an E-card or Social Security (SV) card.
- Children from EU states require a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)
- We recommend that children from other countries take out medical insurance with the European Insurance Agency (please see below).
Should you decide to take out another insurance policy, please be aware that in the case of illness or accident, our team of supervisors cannot contact the insurance company before consulting a doctor or hospital, to ensure your child receives the fastest medical attention possible. Parents will be informed immediately (after emergency treatment is given) and can then clarify any further steps with their insurance company.
Should your child have to visit a doctor or hospital during the camp, some costs may have to be paid immediately. We undertake to pay these costs in advance and kindly ask you to settle the bill later. We will send you the original medical bill and any further settlements along with your insurance.
If a direct cash payment is not required at the location, then the medical bill from the doctor or hospital will be sent in due course. Please pay the outstanding bill and send the original bill along with a claim form and damages report including all necessary paperwork to the insurance company.
