Travel assistance insurance may even be worthwhile if you already have hospitalisation insurance.

If you are admitted to hospital outside the European Union, some hospitalisation insurance policies only reimburse a limited portion of your medical expenses. It’s best to check this with your insurer before you leave.

Travel assistance insurance with KBC offers the same maximum compensation limit worldwide.

Temporary travel insurance: for a single trip

If you only go on holiday once a year, you can take out travel insurance for the duration of your trip as long as it’s not for more than 120 days. Long-term travel insurance is often the cheapest way to ensure that you are fully covered for all of your trips.

Long-term travel insurance: for all your trips over a one-year period

If you take multiple trips over the course of a year, then long-term travel insurance is the ideal solution. Knowing you’re covered for all your trips over a one-year period provides you with peace of mind and the freedom to set off on holiday whenever you like.

Setbacks can occur any time, any place. Therefore, our assistance helpline is available for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Just call + 32 16 24 24 24.
