How to choose the right insurance for you?

CLASSIC insurance for trips across Europe and for common injuries, such as fractures and lacerations, is sufficient. For journeys to more distant locations PLUS insurance with a limit of CZK 10 000 000 is more appropriate. No matter what, consider your expectations, risk and needs – CLASSIC insurance with its CZK 5 million limit may not be sufficient for medical procedures, extended hospital stays or accidents in the mountains.

Insure yourself against other unexpected situations

Active sports

We will insure both amateur and professional sports enthusiasts. Active sports work out to CZK 40/day and organised sports to CZK 60/day.

Accident, baggage and third-party liability insurance

Do you want the greatest amount of certainty when travelling? Combine accident insurance with baggage insurance. At the same time, we offer third-party liability insurance. All for CZK 20/day.

Short-term home insurance

Insure your property and home against vandals, the elements and burglars while you are on vacation. You can choose from several options starting from CZK 180.

Cancellation insurance

Do you have to cancel your holiday unexpectedly? The insurance covers 80% of the cancellation fee. The insurance costs 3% of the price of the trip, with the maximum price of a trip being CZK 75 000 per person.
