If, when your insurance contract expires, there is absolutely no way for you to return to your home country, your Schengen insurance contract can be renewed as an exception if the following conditions are met:

  • Due to special and unpredictable circumstances, it is indeed impossible for you to return to your country of residence no matter what route you take.

The insured must submit to us evidence of inability to return to the country upon our request. If on the date of signing the renewal contract, another airline provides an alternative flight to reach the insured's country of residence, "the original flight was cancelled" cannot be used as a legitimate reason for not being able to return to the country.
