What is covered

What is not covered

The main monetary protections offered by ACKO travel insurance are listed below. However, keep in mind that the coverages you receive when purchasing our policy will depend on the level of customisation you choose and the applicable terms and conditions.

  • Loss and delay of luggage

It is possible for the airlines you fly with to lose or delay your luggage while you are travelling to or from Switzerland. In such cases, we will credit you with a fixed lump sum compensation as per the policy terms.

  • Compassionate visits

If you fall ill or suffer accident-related injuries, you may need to be hospitalised in Switzerland. However, dealing with such conditions on your own in a foreign country can be challenging. In order to make things easier for you, we have a provision where you can fly a family member from India over, and we'll cover their travel expenses.

  • Trip cancellation due to COVID-19

Contracting COVID-19 before starting a trip can cause you to cancel/reschedule your travel. Consequently, you may also not be able to recover the costs of the cancelled travel. In such a case, your unrecoverable expenses will be covered by ACKO's Travel Insurance up to a predetermined limit that is detailed in the policy document. 

  • Cancellation and rescheduling of travel

It's possible that something unforeseen could happen right before your trip, forcing you to cancel or reschedule your travel plans. If this is the case and the reason for the trip cancellation is covered by your insurance, we will reimburse the incurred expenses. The same can be used to arrange a different trip at a different time or for other purposes.

  • Death and repatriation

In rare cases, during the course of the travel, the insured may pass away due to illness or accident-caused injuries. In such cases, we will cover the charges of transporting the mortal remains of the insured to their hometown.

  • Injuries related to adventure sports

If you are engaging in an adventure sport during your Switzerland trip, you can rest assured that we are here to provide you with the best coverage in the event of an injury. Our coverage includes hospital stays, surgery and physiotherapy expenses, as well as additional support to help you get back on your feet. 

  • Personal liability

Accidents can happen, and sometimes you can be the cause. If, while in Switzerland, you accidentally cause injuries, property damage or death to a third party, we will provide protection from the financial burden that may arise from legal expenses and damages. So, you will not be left to bear the full burden of the incident.

  • Passport lost

A passport is a vital form of identification when travelling abroad. In fact, its possession is legally mandated in the majority of countries. If you, unfortunately, lose your passport while abroad, you could be subject to legal repercussions. Here, ACKO's travel policy can provide financial assistance to help you obtain a replacement.

A medical emergency can happen at any time. If you do not have enough money to cover medical expenses, you may be in a vulnerable position.
