Travel insurance for vacations in Austria

Hotel Cancellation Premium

What reasons for cancellation are covered, and who is authorised to cancel?

The list of all insured reasons for cancellation can be found in the information sheet. The most important reasons are:

  • suddenly occurring serious illness, serious health consequences resulting from an accident or death of the insured person or family members;
  • serious damage to your property at the place of residence as a result of Act of God or criminal act of a third party;
  • loss of job without fault, as a result of notice of termination issued by the employer.

With Hotel Cancellation Premium are additional reasons for cancellation covered, such as

  • unexpectedly occurring serious illness, serious physical injury caused by an accident or death of the person caring for family members who are minority age or who require care, whose permanent owner is the insured, making your presence absolutely necessary;
  • unexpectedly occurring serious illness or serious physical injury caused by an accidentof a dog, cat or horse (pets) whose permanent owner is the insured, making your presence absolutely necessary;
  • neighbourly assistance by the insured in the event of a disaster;
  • unforeseen taking up of a new employment relationship.

Who is authorised to cancel?

If an insured event occurs (e.g. a person falling sick), the following insured co-travellers can also cancel:

  • family members of the insured person affected;
  • a maximum of three additional persons per insured event.

I would also like cancellation cover for travel costs – can I do that?

Yes - Hotel Cancellation Premium insures the trip booked at the time of conclusion of the insurance - e.g. hotel or rental arrangement. Additionally booked benefits and travel expenses can be insured.

When do I have to take out insurance?

Generally, the insurance should be taken out at the same time as the journey is booked. If the insurance is taken out on the basis of an insurance offer which has been sent with the booking confirmation, insurance taken out not later than five days after the journey is booked is deemed to have been taken out at the same time as the journey is booked.

If insurance is taken out after the day on which you make your travel booking, a “waiting period” applies in respect of cancellation benefits, i.e. the cancellation cover applies only from the 10th day after the insurance has been taken out (except in the case of accident, death or Act of God).
For example: if you book your summer holiday in January and take out travel insurance on 1 March, the cover in respect of cancellation does not start until 11 March.

If you take out cover via the Internet site, your insurance policy will be immediately displayed and sent to you by email by way of confirmation.

What confirmation do I receive if I take out insurance online?

In your insurance policy you will find full information on the insurance you have taken out, and the link to the information sheet, so that you can call up full information on the product at any time.

Does the insurance also apply in respect of business trips?

Hotel Cancellation Premium can also be taken out for business trips.
