School trip insurance: carefree travel with insurance cover
Even the thought of a beautiful experience – whether in the past or the future – triggers feelings of happiness in us humans. When planning an upcoming trip, it brings back memories of joyful moments during previous journeys and evokes feelings of longing and freedom. Some scientists claim that this anticipation often makes people happier than the actual event they are looking forward to.
School trips are often looked forward to for months by teachers, parents and students. To ensure that this anticipation is not clouded by worries about possible financial losses, there are insurance policies that cover certain contingencies and provide assistance in the event of misfortune. Here, the insurance companies have a wealth of variants on offer, but it is easy for a layman to lose track of them all. To help you decide whether to take out an insurance policy, we have explained below the most important travel insurances that alpetour offers for school trips.
Basic travel cancellation cover before departure
Absolutely recommendable above all with school trips – the travel resignation basic protection. This insurance is number 1 among travel insurances. The most common events that make this insurance indispensable are: unexpected serious illness, serious accidental injury, retaking a failed exam, changing schools, or even not being transferred. Especially a very short-term withdrawal is often associated with high cancellation costs. The travel cancellation insurance offered by alpetour from our partner "Allianz Travel" reimburses these costs without deductible! In the event of a claim, make sure that the event that occurred is also insured. If z.B. If a participant's payment is not received and he or she is therefore excluded from the class trip, this is not a reason for insurance. Also the exclusion of a participant for disciplinary reasons is not insured.
Insurance packages after the start of the trip
While travel cancellation insurance takes effect in the event of damage before the start of the trip, there are insurance benefits that are also useful after the trip has begun. For alpetour class trips we therefore also offer an insurance package without excess as an alternative to the basic travel cancellation cover. In addition to the basic travel cancellation cover, this package includes travel interruption, travel accident, travel liability and travel health insurance incl. Sick repatriation. Z.B.
