Did you know...?
The most important aspect of travel insurance are not the coverage limits but quality of assistance in emergency. Being the specialists, we know what is really important for you.
What is the difference between Seaside and Discovery insurance?
Sbaleno Seaside has lower insurance coverage limits than Sbaleno Discovery. The product names are indicative.

Both of them include the same level of services.

Is your credit card travel insurance sufficient?
Some of the credit card travel insurance products include apply to the medical expenses, the insurance coverage limits are not high enough and the deductible has to be paid for each insured event (up to CZK 5 000). It usually does not include trip cancellation insurance and/or other travel related risks. If you rely on credit card insurance, make sure to check its coverage.
What is (not) covered by the European Health Insurance Card?
In the EU (as well as in Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Switzerland) you are entitled to receive the necessary health care during your stay abroad. However, these services are not free of charge, so in most cases you will not save money. You can only be treated in public healthcare facilities and your home insurance company will pay for the treatment to the amount that is normally covered by local health insurance companies. Just like locals, you will have to pay the deductible that can be quite high. You will have to arrange everything yourself because the EHIC card does not include assistance services and does not cover any costs for transport to the Czech Republic.
Few months before the scheduled delivery date, I decided to go on last holidays with my husband. I discussed the trip with my doctor before I left and everything seemed fine. However, unexpected complications occured to me and I eventually prematurely delivered in Italy. We would not be able to manage it without help of the assistance service. They recommended us a proven hospital, they stayed in touch with us, regularly checked the situation and arranged our transfer back home. This is the first time we experienced such a professional and at the same time human approach. The whole team that was working on our case deserves a big thanks.

Simplicity and quality from specialists
With regards to our experience and costs of abroad healthcare, we recommend you to arrange SingleTrip Comfort insurance that has sufficient insurance coverage limits. However, you can choose any other insurance product that we offer.
The insurance covers medical expenses, assistance services, accidental death or permanent disablement, luggage theft or damage, personal liability for bodily injury or property damage, legal protection and trip cancellation.
There are many extensions you can add to the SingleTrip Comfort. Emergency Situations extension can help when you have to extend your stay abroad due to unintentional COVID-19 quarantine or failure to meet the medical conditions for the return journey (e.g. aircraft boarding refusal). Deductible is 20 %. You can also add Vehicle extension that will help when you need a car repair abroad or tow it back to the Czech Republic. It also covers alternative accommodation for the duration of the repair, or expenses related to rent car accident deductibles. Extension Flights will cover you in cases such as a decline of an air carrier or flight delays or cancellations benefits.
The maximum price of a tour or travel services that we insure is CZK 300,000 per insurance contract, family or co-travellers. You must conclude the insurance within 3 working days after payment for the first travel service (for “last minute” services on the date of payment for the services).
