Medical travel assistance

You were so looking forward to your big adventure, but your trip to the tropical Amazonian rainforest is ill-fated. On just the third day, your partner falls ill with malaria and is consumed by a raging fever. Thank goodness for Viseca: if a medical emergency occurs during your trip abroad, our medical travel assistance will organise round-the-clock help.

Our insurance partner takes care of everything and covers the costs of the return trip, return transportation or repatriation, including the return trip for a companion. Medical travel assistance also covers the costs of transfer to a suitable hospital as well as search, rescue and medical expenses.
