Travel insurance brings peace of mind when travelling around the world and domestically
Our comprehensive travel insurance can help you even in difficult situations, whether you fall ill just before or during your trip or even if you lose your luggage.
If travel insurance can also be extended to cover domestic trips when you choose our continuous travel insurance. It may be cheaper to insure an individual trip abroad with a fixed-term travel insurance policy.
Temporary and continuous travel insurances
A continuous travel insurance is the best and cheapest choice for you if you travel abroad multiple times a year, make one long journey or travel to a long-haul destination.
A temporary travel insurance, or fixed-term insurance, is usually cheaper when you travel abroad only once a year and do not travel domestically. Insurance is always purchased for one trip at a time, and the price is affected by the destination and the duration of the trip.
Temporary travel insurance has no age restrictions, which means that people aged 80 or over can also get one.
When you travel often or for a longer period
Continuous travel insurance is the most convenient and affordable solution for travelling abroad or domestically at least twice a year. It leaves you with more time to concentrate on planning your travel instead of having to think about insurance, since you do not have to notify us about your trips.
The insurance is valid on journeys lasting up to 45 days. If necessary, you can also buy cover for additional days and extend the scope of your insurance to also cover costs of treating illnesses and accidents happening during domestic travel.
Our customer service can help you calculate the price of continuous travel insurance.

Can I get travel insurance for longer trips?
Continuous travel insurance is valid for a maximum of 45 days for long journeys, and for trips longer than that you will need a temporary travel insurance.
Otherwise, you should contact our customer service. If you already have continuous travel insurance, you can also purchase coverage for periods exceeding 45 days as necessary.
How early should I take out a travel insurance policy?
It is advisable to take out a travel insurance policy no later than three days before the start of the trip in order to ensure that you can get compensated in case the trip is cancelled due to illness for example.
In other respects, the travel insurance is immediately valid even if you get it at the very last minute at the airport.
Is travel insurance valid in Finland?
When you purchase a continuous travel insurance policy, it will also cover cancellations or interruptions of domestic travel due to illness and similar reasons.
If you wish, you can also extend your continuous travel insurance to cover the costs of treating illnesses and accidents happening during domestic trips.
Is it possible to participate in high-risk sports and events while travelling?
Travel insurance is valid when participating in the following high-risk sports:
- Diving (trial dive or basic diving course, e.g. open water diver course)
- Climbing or glacier trekking (guided session lasting no more than 4 hours)
- Bungee jumping, hot-air ballooning, tandem parachuting, tandem hang-gliding or tandem parachute gliding
If you are already involved in the aforementioned or other risky sports, you will need a separate sports insurance policy for the trip. You will also need one when participating in a competitive event for any sport while travelling.
Get sports insurance for your trip through our customer service.
Insured persons under the age of 18 do not need additional cover, as the travel insurance will be valid for all sports even when participating in competitions.
How can I terminate my insurance policy?
You can terminate your continuous travel insurance through customer service. If you terminate your insurance, the premium will be charged for the validity period of the insurance.
If you terminate a continuous insurance policy during the first insurance period, an additional processing fee of EUR 30 will be charged. In this case as well you will pay no more than the annual insurance premium in total.
