Search and rescue
The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is a medical insurance for young people wanting to study, do an internship or work as an au pair abroad.
What does the insurance reimburse?
You will receive a maximum reimbursement of €25,000 for search, rescue and recovery if:
- this happens by order of an official institution (e.g. the police)
- you have a statement from this official institution
While studying in Switzerland, you climb a mountain. After hours of climbing you turn back but become hopelessly lost and end up wandering around the mountainous area. The police instigate a search and order a helicopter to look for you. You will receive a reimbursement of the total costs of €6,500.
