The 3 insurers are presented in quality of the 3 leaders in medical assistance in the world related to the turnover and/or files processed per year.

The 3 insurers are not the only ones to offer travel insurance and in no case does this represent a form of exhaustiveness.

INSURTE is remunerated by an included commission in the insurance premium when the contract is concluded:

  • INSURTE received a commission over the last financial year from AXA Assistance (INTER PARTNER Assistance), which represents more than 33% of our turnover. 
  • This in no way guides the presentation of options.

INSURTE can work with introducers who have remuneration for this introduction.

INSURTE is a distributor of insurance contracts and offers its prospects and/or customers to subscribe to them.

To present the different available options INSURTE needs personal information about the prospect travelers (for more information on the protection of personal data and cookies, please go to the Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy sections).

The options available depend on different criteria (age, country of departure, nationality, country of arrival, etc.).

You agree to answer all questions completely and accurately and not to impersonate another person.

Any non-disclosure or misrepresentation concerning the elements of risk known to the Policyholder exposes her/him to the penalties provided by the French Insurance Code, namely: reduction of indemnities or nullity of the Subscription to the Policy (Articles L. 113-8 and L.113-9 of the French Insurance Code). Any non-disclosure or misrepresentation concerning the elements of the claim known to the Policyholder, exposes her/him, in case of bad faith, to the following sanction: nullity of the Subscription to the Policy, with paid premiums, then remaining the property of the insurer.

Insurte is not responsible for errors, omissions, inaccuracies that may be made in the information provided by the User. Insurte reserves the right to request any supporting documents relating to these elements and possibly to suspend the service for the time necessary to provide these supporting documents.
