Compare and take out travel insurances
It is wise to delve into the various travel insurance policies and providers before you take one out. A travel insurance must of course provide the right cover for the trip you are about to make. On this page you will find information about comparing insurers and switching to another travel insurance.
Insurers can decide for themselves what is and what does not fall within the coverage of their travel insurance. It is therefore possible that another insurer offers a package that suits your needs better. Insurers may also determine the price of their package themselves. Maybe there is an insurance company that offers the same package for a lower price or where you can benefit from student discounts.
Which insurance should I choose?
There are different types of travel insurance policies. It is therefore important to first determine whether you want a short term period, annual or Globetrotter travel insurance. Then you can view which items are important to you. Are you going to use the insurance for travel outside Europe or winter sports holidays? Then take out additional travel insurance for this.
Compare travel insurance
When you have determined which items you would like to cover by the policy, you can compare insurers on price and policy conditions. Consider, for example, how the various insurers deal with declarations and whether there is a heading of extraordinary costs. In addition, it is of course important that the travel insurance does not cost you too much. Therefore, you should also compare the monthly premiums.

Switching from travel insurance
It is not always possible to cancel your travel insurance and to switch to another travel insurance. There are rules that specify when this is possible. These rules vary per type of insurance:
- Annual travel insurance: you take out this insurance for a minimum of one year. You can not switch during that period. After a year you are free to stop the insurance whenever you want.
After cancelling your travel insurance you can take out a new travel insurance online with just a few steps. You will receive the policy by mail or you will be sent home.
