You need to fill in a claim form and submit the following documentary evidence to support your claim: Invoices, receipts and /or estimates for property damage, loss or theft Full medical evidence and receipts for medical claims Birth and death certificates for personal accident/life insurance policies In liability cases, only the third party makes the claim, therefore, the claim is out of the policyholder's hands Generally, travel insurance covers you against:
+ Flight delays and misconnection
+ Emergency repatriation for health reasons
+ Hospitalization and medical care in case of illness or accident
+ Repatriation of the body in case of deathv + Cancellation penalties
