You are staying in Switzerland and go mountain climbing. 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.

You can claim your medical expenses quickly and easily via My OOM.
