  • Europe

You're covered everywhere in your area, whether you're at home, on holiday or on a business trip. Travelling to a specific destination for the sole purpose of receiving medical treatment will not be covered in your health insurance. See the full list of countries covered

  • Platinum – one of our popular international health insurance covers, offering a wide range of benefits
  • Diamond – for the most comprehensive cover, including cover for outpatient treatment with no overall monetary limit (limits apply for psychiatric treatment and routine health checks)

Each higher level of health insurance cover is adding extra benefits or higher benefit limits to the level below. For more information see the Worldwide Table of Benefits.
