What you need to know when you travel abroad as an Erasmus Plus programme participant.
Insurance coverage for the Erasmus Plus programme is mandatory Europe-wide. Your liability insurance must provide protection in the workplace. In the guidelines it says:
„A liability insurance in the workplace covers losses which are caused by the participant in the context of work. The participant, the sending organisation or the hosting institution ensure the liability insurance in the working place. The sending organisation is obliged to verify the existence of a liability insurance at the workplace. “
The insurance coverage of PROTRIP-WORLD-H meets these requirements.
In the EU guidelines, the particular importance of the personal liability insurance is highlighted as follows:
„A personal liability insurance in the workplace covers losses which are caused by the participant during leisure time. The participant is not obliged to take out a personal liability insurance abroad, but it is highly recommended. The sending organisation is obliged to inform the participant about the risks and, if desired, to check, whether the personal liability insurance also extends to foreign countries.”
The insurance cover of PROTRIP-WORLD-H consists of a liability insurance at the working place and of a personal liability insurance. Thus, with PROTRIP-WORLD-H you implement the urgent recommendations stated in the EU guidelines.
