Search and rescue

The OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance is a medical insurance for foreign young people who come to the Netherlands as a student, intern or au pair.

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

No excess applies to search and rescue.

You go sailing on the North Sea. Your motor breaks down and you are left drifting helplessly. The police instigate a search and order a helicopter and lifeboat 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.
