Ms. O. books a 3-day city break to Rome. To make sure she is well protected, she takes out a CancellationCover policy. A week before the longed-for holiday her father has a heart attack and has to stay in intensive care. The holiday is immediately cancelled so that Ms O. can be with her father. The cancellation costs amount to 65% of the cost of the holiday. The costs, which amount to 725 Euros, are paid in full by Europäische Reiseversicherung.
Due to the current political and military situation, the sanctions, airspace closures and deactivated payment facilities we currently do not offer insurance for travel to Israel, to Ukraine, Russia or Belarus.
