Travel Insurance (Visit Visa) for Schengen Zone


I have a relative (Non EU) who will be visiting us here in Switzerland. One of the requirements before she will be issued a Visit Visa is the Travel Insurance which must meet the following:

1. Valid in Switzerland and in ALL Schengen member states.
2. Minimum EUR30,000 to cover expenses related to accident/medical/hospital/repatriation.

Has anyone been thru this before?

I was informed that we can take out the insurance either here in Switzerland or in the home country.

I have received the following quotations:
1. Zurich Insurance - CHF50,000; 92-Day period; Price = CHF624
2. AXA Assistance ( - EUR30,000; 90-Day period; Price = CHF120

Has anyone tried AXA Assistance before? Their quotation seems really cheap compared to Zurich!

Can you recommend some other companies?

Thank you!
