What is travel insurance?

Travel insurance offers reliable protection against the costs arising from unexpected situations that may occur during foreign or domestic trips. We recommend travel insurance to anyone who goes on a trip, be it for leisure, sightseeing, or to practice amateur sports (e.g. skiing). Travel insurance should also be an indispensable element of travel with children.
Travel insurance allows you to relax and enjoy your trip without worry. It covers, among other things, the cost of medical treatment, COVID-19 quarantine and medical transport, as well as offering financial security in the event of flight delay or loss of luggage. Insurance also includes third-party liability and accident insurance.
When planning a trip, always choose travel insurance that will protect you against the consequences of most unforeseen situations.

This insurance is for you if:

You expect comprehensive protection wherever you are

You are traveling for recreation and leisure purposes

You practice sport not professionally, e.g. skiing or jogging

You want to secure your luggage

Thanks to this cooperation, we can offer a comprehensive-yet-inexpensive solution which covers, among others, costs arising from medical treatment and medical transport during an overseas trip up to the value of €300,000 – one of the highest insured sums available on the market!

Family travel

It is always best to cover any trip with children by taking out travel insurance. In the event of any health problems – even colds or cuts – you can quickly and without additional cost benefit from medical assistance such as medical visits, teleconsultations with an internist or paediatrician and even hospitalisation. This insurance also enables you to obtain a reimbursement of any costs incurred for medicines, dressings or orthopaedic products prescribed by a doctor.

EHIC and travel insurance

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is a popular solution when traveling in Europe. Although it has many advantages, the EHIC may not protect against as many events as travel insurance purchased via eSky as the the scope of EHIC coverage depends on the country of travel. Neither does the EHIC cover the costs of medical transport, which in the case of European countries may be very high, potentially exceeding €100,000. Therefore, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance via eSky in addition to the EHIC. Our insurance covers transport costs up to EUR €300,000 – one of the highest insured sums available on the market.
