For TK members: the perfect medical travel plan for every trip

Accident or illness can happen to all of us – also while travelling. If you are suddenly taken ill on a trip, travelling can be a financial risk too: what if you need to stay in hospital or require medical repatriation?

All our travel health insurance plans provide worldwide protection against unexpected medical expenses and assistance when you need it most.

You just need to choose the plan that suits your needs best.

We offer policies that cover you for short breaks or longer trips, for business or leisure:

TravelPlus (TravelXN / TravelXF)

Travel as often as you like with one of our annual travel health insurance policies.

With our plans TravelXN (for individuals) and TravelXF (for families) your insurance cover continues automatically unless you cancel your policy with three months' notice (to the end of the policy period).

How you benefit: Your plan provides health cover for every trip you make for up to 60 days - for business and leisure travel.

Individual Plan TravelXN 11,90 Euro 
Families Plan TravelXF 28,90 Euro


A single trip policy for the exact number of days you want to travel

When you stay abroad for longer than eight weeks it is probably because of a job or as a part of a work and travel scheme. That's why we think you should only pay for the exact period you are staying abroad.

How you benefit: You can take out this single trip policy for the exact number of days you want to travel. It also means: your policy ends automatically when your trip ends. Of course you can take out another TravelXL policy for your next longer trip.

The benefits in detail

How long before travelling do I need to take out health insurance with Envivas for travel abroad, or can I take it out if I'm already abroad?

Private health insurance from Envivas for travel abroad can be taken out at any time prior to departure, but not during the trip.  

Please ensure that you are protected for the whole trip.

Start of travel: The first day of travel abroad is the day of departing from Germany. This is also the inception date. Should your departure be moved to an earlier date, please ensure that you amend your insurance cover accordingly.

End of travel: The final day of your trip abroad is the day of your intended entry into Germany.

Does health insurance from Envivas for travel abroad apply to private and business trips abroad?

Our health insurance for travel abroad covers you for both private and any business trips abroad within the agreed periods.

How are invoices settled with the doctor abroad and Envivas?

You will receive an invoice from your doctor for any private treatment abroad. You will need to pay this invoice and then claim for reimbursement of the insured portion of costs from Envivas.

The costs are reimbursed by Envivas.

Send us the original documents, stating your insurance policy number, to:

Envivas Krankenversicherung AG,
Gereonswall 68,
50670 Cologne, Germany

Invoices must contain the following information:

Surname, first name, the person treated, description of the illness, length of treatment, date of treatment, fees for individual treatments.

Outpatient, inpatient and dental care

Our plans do not have a euro limit on medically necessary services and procedures. Whether you need medical help from a doctor, hospital, physiotherapist or dentist, the plan pays 100 per cent of all medical costs. This includes prescription medication, dressings and physical therapies.

Medical repatriation

Medical repatriation can be live-saving, but also very expensive! We cover 100 per cent of the additional cost of taking you to a hospital in Germany if it is medically advisable and reasonable. The plan also covers 100 per cent of the cost of transport services to the nearest hospital or emergency doctor if it is medically necessary.

Evacuation, Search and Rescue

If you have an accident during a hiking trip, you may not be able to reach a hospital or doctor without help. We pay up to 2,500 euros per insured event in case of evacuation, rescue and search.

Repatriation of remains

When the worst happens, family members shouldn't have to worry about whether the deceased can be repatriated to Germany or buried locally. This is for them to decide.
In any case we cover 100 per cent of the cost of a local burial and repatriation to Germany (maximum 30,000 euros for TravelXL and maximum of 15,000 euros for TravelPlus).

Escort services for underage children

TravelXN and TravelXF: we pay 100 per cent of the cost of an escort for your child if either the parent is covered under one of our travel policies or the child is. The plan pays provided all people travelling with the child are in hospital, need to be repatriated or have died.
TravelXL: we pay up to 5,000 euros towards the cost of an escort for your child and 100 per cent of the cost of the return trip.

Compassionate visits

You are travelling alone and have to stay in hospital for a while. Perhaps a loved one wants to visit you abroad. Under certain conditions, we pay 100 per cent of the cost of a return trip for a person visiting you (TravelXN and TravelXF).

Assistance services

When there is a medical emergency abroad, financial protection is often not enough. What you need is someone to answer urgent questions, arrange services or help with language barriers.
Our medical emergency helpdesk is available for you 24/7 – every day of the year.

These are just some examples of how we can help:

  • inform your GP (general practitioner) in Germany and arrange talks between local doctors and doctors abroad
  • inform you about pharmaceutical products available abroad
  • name interpreters and find doctors or dentists who speak foreign languages
  • forward information to family members
  • arrange ambulance services and medical repatriation
  • arrange a local burial or repatriation of remains to Germany
