Globetrotters, backpackers, world tour travelers

The challenge of a globetrotter is to find an insurance that will offer him a coverage during his trip abroad while he has no permanent residency.

Also renewing an insurance during the trip is not that easy. Insurers require of the globetrotter to turn back home in order to purchase a new insurance.

Swisscare Globetrotter plan solve this problem as no permanent residency during the trip is necessary and the insurance can be prolongated at any point of the trip.

Pre-existing conditions are not included in the plan. The plan can be purchased for a duration up to 60 months.

Medical cover

Travelgate globetrotter covers acute sickness and injury during your trip abroad. This means that for all unforeseen sickness or injuries, you can consult a general practitioner, specialist or visit a public hospital. For minor emergencies, we suggest visiting a general practitioner first. You will avoid long time waiting delays in a hospital emergency reception.

All benefits are limited in insurance sum. Please see our table comparison hereunder.

Get round the hour assistance 24/7

Travelgate international propose a complete travel protection that includes assistance 24/7. Search and rescue, repatriation to the home country or repatriation of mortal remain, ambulance transport, medical advice …

The assistance line 24 / 7 also provide advice in case of sickness and injury and deliver the GOP (Guarantee of payment) for hospital admission.

Think community

Once you are insured through one of the Swisscare products, you are paying an insurance premium for an event of which most certainly hope it will never occur. The premium you pay will fall into a community fund (insurance).

The majority of the members of this community contribute to you for those who are in need while they are sick or have an accident.

You participate like all members of the community into this fund with a financial contribution because there is a risk that one day you are also in needs and suffer from an illness or an accident for which the cost of treatments would be impossible to bear on your own. In that case, you will then profit from the fund (insurance) of the others members which will pay for you.
