Through legislation provided coverage areas for public travelers – for example:
- Within the EU: If you get ill or have an accident during his travel in the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and several other smaller European countries, covering health insurance is not the cost of repatriation to a hospital. Outside the EU: there is no health insurance care in non-EU countries such as Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Tunisia, Morocco, and Croatia. In countries outside the EU, it is not only the financial assistance for repatriation, which is cut away, but any kind of help.
This means that the hospital stay, cost of medication, counseling, practical assistance, recommendation of hospitals, and other support is not present in countries outside the EU unless you have taken out insurance – otherwise you stand for a possible hospital stay directly "on the street ".
