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 (www.axa-schengen.com) - 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! :msngrin:

Re: Travel Insurance (Visit Visa) for Schengen Zone
Itís very difficult to compare policies without knowing exactly what they cover, and donít cover, and the terms and conditions.

My family in England always use AXA and have had to make a couple of claims. The service was very good and prompt with no problems.
