Travel insurance

It is important to remember that the EHIC does not fully cover the cost of your medical treatment and will not entitle you to free or low cost private treatment. It will also not cover the cost of urgent repatriation to DK, so it is always wise to have a good Travel insurance policy in place.

The insurance covers

Insurance coverage is important when you take a trip because sudden injury or illness can otherwise be both expensive and inconvenient. If you travel to a country or territory covered by the blue European Health Insurance Card, you are covered on an equal footing with the country's citizens. The Danish yellow social security card cannot be used as travel health insurance outside of Denmark, the Faeroe Islands and Greenland.

The forms are indicative and are an extract from the insurance terms and conditions. Any compensation will be calculated according to the rules in the insurance terms and conditions.

Travel insurance

If you only travel in Europe, you can limit your coverage to EU/EEA countries. This includes Switzerland and Great Britain. See full list of countries covered in Europe coverage below on this page.

If you are traveling to a country that is not included here, then you need cover worldwide.

The insurance can cover your household, even if your spouse and children travel without you being the policyholder. Your insurance should state the number of people in your household for them to be covered.

The household


The insurance covers if you get sick or injure on your trip and need treatment, medicine, a doctor or hospital.

You are entitled to receive treatment at a private hospital if:

  • The doctor estimates that treatment at a public hospital is insufficient
  • If a private hospital is the only option
  • When we consider that the nearest public hospital is too far away

You are covered if you have to interrupt your vacation and go home due to a family member in Denmark has become seriously ill, injuried or is dead.

You are also covered if you need to get home because of one of the following reasons:

  • Fire, explosion or flood
  • Home or business burglary (only if notified to the police)


You can be transported to a hospital or home in case of illness, injury and death during your holidays. Please be aware that transportation home must previously be approved by our doctor.

I you get seriously ill or injured, you can get help from home. This means that the escort from home can stay with you, for instance, during hospitalization.

How you can get a patient escort:

  • All insured travelling companions can escort you, unless you wish somebody else from home.
  • You can get one, even if your fellow traveler also needs one.
  • A covered travelling companion can apply for a call of an escort if you do not call for two patient escorts from home.

You are insured up to a radius of 50 km to search from the place you last seen. You are also entitled to be rescued once you have been located.


You are covered if an incident occurs on your journey that requires evacuation. For example:

  • War or prelude to war.
  • Epidemics.
  • Incidents that can be considered terrorism.

Evacuation and transport home to Denmark is necessary when the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Denmark recommends evacuation.

You and any relatives can reimburse your expenses for psychological crisis counselling on the spot or after returning home.

You are covered if your luggage is delayed for more than five hours.

You are covered if you participate in activities that can be categorized as Extreme sports. If you are in doubt about your specific situation, please contact us.

For instance, you can get coverage during the following activities:

  • Climbing
  • Boxing
  • Diving
  • Parachuting
  • Paragliding
  • Kitesurfing
  • River rafting

See the list of all activities categorized as Extreme sports.


In case of unexpected events you are financially secured with an extended travel insurance. In case of late attendance, delayed transportation and compensation for damage to the rented holiday accommodation.

If you are going on a skiing holiday, the basic coverage does not include compensation for an entire ruined holiday or some ruined travel days. However, if you add this option to your current cover, you will be entitled to compensation for a completely ruined holiday or just some travel days. For instance, if you are injured while skiing or snowboarding.

The option covers, for instance, if you get a permanent disability, dental trauma, suffer a violent assault or die. Please note that this option only covers abroad. As an alternative, you should consider taking out an accident insurance, which offers you coverage both in Denmark and abroad.

You are covered if you have to cancel your trip due to illness or injure right before your trip. You can also cancel your trip if there is war or terror in the country you are visiting, or if you get sacked from work, you are getting divorce or simply have to reschedule your exams during your trip. Please note that Cancellation does not cover if you purchased this optional covering less than 12 days before traveling.
