At STARLING, flawless operation from start to finish is an absolute must. It goes without saying that proper insurance is part of that. We can provide travel insurance in the form of breakdown cover for every participant on our nature trips / photography  tours / nature workshops / photography workshops. The cost is 2 euros / day in Europe and 4 euros / day in other parts of the world. The contents of the policy include:

  • compensation of medical expenses incurred abroad
  • compensation of repatriation costs
  • medical follow-up to €6250 after an accident abroad
  • arrangements and compensation of early return due to urgent reasons
  • etc.

In addition we offer a cancellation insurance with Allianz which can be added as a supplement. A cancellation policy will refund the cancelled amount and amounts to 5.5% of the sum to be insured. Cancellation can happen due to the following reasons:

  • Illness, accident, death of partner, family member or travelling companion
  • Significant damage to the property you live in
  • Eviction from the rental property
  • Involuntary dismissal of yourself or a family member
  • Divorce or separation of non-married couples
  • Resits for students (under certain conditions)
  • Becoming pregnant after booking a trip (under certain conditions)
  • Organ transplantation
  • etc.
