Because business trips abroad are no rarity for some employees of the construction company S., the company has maintained a Corporate Travel Insurance (CTI) policy with Europäische Reiseversicherung for years.
This time it is Mr. K. who is travelling to Sao Paulo, Brazil, as an employee of construction company S. During a construction site visit, he suddenly collapses and remains unconscious on the ground. At a local hospital, he is diagnosed with a cerebral haemorrhage. His life-threatening condition can be stabilised with immediate emergency measures; however, a long hospital stay is required. The construction company is forced to send another colleague to Sao Paulo to act as substitute. After a six-week stay in the hospital, Europäische Reiseversicherung, which is in constant contact with the treating physicians, receives the information that the patient's condition has improved sufficiently for him to be brought home. Europäische Reiseversicherung immediately arranges for the pick-up by ambulance jet with an accompanying physician and medic.
Thanks to the Corporate Travel Insurance policy, Europäische Reiseversicherung pays the costs for Mr. K.'s hospital stay in the amount of € 158,700, the costs for the flight by his colleague in the amount of € 4,200 and the costs of the pick-up by ambulance jet in the amount of € 73,000.
In total, Europäische Reiseversicherung covers € 235,900.
Without the Corporate Travel Insurance policy from Europäische Reiseversicherung, the company would have had to pay the entire costs.
Yes, under certain conditions employees of branch offices and subsidiaries can also be included in the insurance contract. Please state your interest in this option when requesting an offer.
Yes, the definition of insured persons is broadly framed. Anyone who is engaging in business travel on behalf of the insurance holder and/or at the insurance holder’s expense is covered. As a result, it does not matter whether the covered persons are engaged through a service contract or in a full employment relationship.
Yes, with module D “Travel Luggage Insurance”, business-related and private luggage is insured up to the chosen policy amount.
It is important to note whether the insurance also applies to business trips and whether the risk of work-related manual labour is also covered. The insurance coverage for luggage should be checked to determine whether business-related luggage is also covered. In principle, companies are liable for nearly all risks encountered by employees on business trips. Employers must therefore take appropriate measures.
